Despite the title, this week was freakin boooooooomb!! Let's begin with Monday not being a PDay. Usually on Tuesday I have to give an informe of the week and my District. Buuuuut because we had an early lesson we decided to skip studies so we could get there on time, and that day we had 6 planned lessons that went through! What the FREAK!? That never happens here so I was pumped and the whole day we didn't have time to do anything but get to our lessons.
On Wednesday we had temple day and it was so great, I advice everyone to go to the temple with a question or a scripture you have been wondering about and to study it. You will receive your answer if the Lord wants to and if you really desire to know! What I studied was temples. While I was there I read in the Guide to the Scriptures that "The temples holiness is closely followed by the Spirit that we can feel inHOME!!!! I was like "Why haven't I read this before!?" Surprisingly enough the whole week was spent sharing the message of eternal families. And yes, there were many tears shed in 85% of the houses we went to.
After that we played basketball, but of course the teams were picked by Zone Leaders and one side was completely dominant...but I ain't even mad!!! What I did get to do was box with my Zone Leader cause he followed me to my new area! So we brought out the gloves and sparred and I might have punched an Elder in the face, but that's a different story;)
On Friday we had ZUMBA CLASSES!!!!!!!! I forgot to tell you all that I have been teaching the Zumba for 3 weeks now and the stake president told me he has never seen so many people come to one activity consecutively before!! Not only that but we have received 5 new investigators from it!!!
Now, onto the title of the email. The last Zumba class I did an RM came up to me and pulled me aside and started ripping into me about how I can't do the activity anymore. Because I don't take crap from no man, I ask him if he was a church leader. He said no, so I asked why cant I do the activity. He said "because missionaries aren't allowed to dance!" I go "Who said that?" He told me it was in the White Handbook (Missionary Manual) I take out my white handbook and I give it to him and I said "here, show me where it says I can't dance and come and tell me when you do." I went on and finished my class. Afterward he gave it back without saying a word and I take out the red church handbook and give it to him and tell him to find it in there. He said it isn't, and I go "Yeah I know." He walks off all bitter that I just destroyed him.
Please please please, if you are about to return home soon, do not be a Mean RM.
Last but not least we finally did it.....we put our Chinese investigators on date and I even gave the opening prayer IN CHINESE!!!!!! I am now a Chinese elder;) But we are excited and so is our friend, he had been praying to know how he can, in his words, "Be numbered upon the people of God" it could not have gotten more golden than that!!:) Today we are gonna chill in the mall, and walk into stores that don't carry my size....cuidados!;)
