October 14, 2014A quote from President Weston’s files
"We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn." (Mary Catherine Bateson)
So this week was full of really ups and very downs. We met some truly crazy, like mentally ill people, who have illusions of being poisoned and are staving them self because they won’t eat poison. We also met some very nice people who told us no very kindly.
BUT…We had to drop 2 investigators one of them, their baby died and they are mad at the world and very frustrated at everything. It is horribly sad. We just told them, that their baby was destined for celestial glory and we were here if they needed us for anything. The other wont keep any commitments that we set with him. So that was hard. Feeling like he really does not want to learn, we will keep in touch with him.
On the other hand we got a return appointment with a guy that we tracted into! It is always exciting to get a new investigator.
All in all this week has been super.
I have also sent you a picture of our new Nebraska missionary car! I think you will like it.
Love Elder Vance
