hmm... SO we went to this less-active's house in this freaky high rise building. We got up to his door and HE HAS ONE EYE. Then he lets us in. We walk in and its instantly apparent that he has no underwear on. Yuck. THEN we look around his house and there are posters of girls in thongs and stuff. So we sit down and try to share an Easter message with the guy and he turns on his weird gypsy music and starts singing to us. I wanted to just get up and leave but he has never let missionaries in so we decided to stay. The spirit came back when he turned off the music. So the.... AND HERE COMES THE KILLER.... he has dialysis twice a week and he is wearing some short gym shorts and he showed us the scars near his nether regions and we saw things that will haunt my dreams for eternity. I felt like I needed to repent.
Thats only one of our experiences this week.
We have seen butts, hard drugs, prostitutes, drag queens, you name it we have seen it. And one thing that all citizens of Massena have in common is no dang teeth. I LOVE IT! These people need the gospel and they are receiving it gladly. Most of them are really accepting to what we share. The Lord loves everyone and we try to remind ourselves that when we are in those sticky situations. "Come what may and love it"!
Easter was so great. We ate dinner at Elder and Sister Huffs house and we all left 5 pounds heavier. I love the Easter season!:) It's a time where you can really focus on Christ's atonement. He died for each and every one of us. " He is adespised and rejected of men; a man of bsorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we cesteemed him not.,Surely he hath aborne our bgriefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he wasawounded for ourbtransgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his cstripes we are dhealed.
I just love those versus in Isaiah. He truly did bear our sins. He loves us and wants the best for us. He has been through every hardship that we have had and ever will have. I know this to be true and I bear witness that He lives.
Well love you all and hope to hear form you soon. Write me some letters.... I'll write ya back.:) hah
