Saying bye to Elder Cook
Lots of progress in this area. We are seeing a bunch of miracles.We found a family of 5 on Monday. They seemed really promising. When we went back on Saturday, the told us that they had read what we had left in the Book of Mormon, but, had a lot of questions. So, we took the time to read with them and answer all their questions. We then taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ lesson (faith, repentance, baptism, reception of the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end), and the spirit was super strong. We taught that lesson super well (with the help of the holy ghost, of course, it wasn´t just us, otherwise we would not have been able to teach that well). At the end, we extended them the invitation to get baptized. When we did, the wife grabbed the Book of Mormon, looked us in the eyes, and said. "I would say no to that." Then she and her husband proceeded to go off on tangents about how all religions are the same, that there is no "One correct religion", and the the JW´s, Catholic´s, and Evangelist´s are also the true church, adding "Even though the Evangelist´s are REALLY weird and have REALLY strange rituals, they too are a true church" (no offense intended to anyone who is Evangelist). Long story short, we had to drop them.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the thy God with thee whithersoever thou goest.
