First of all, last Tuesday at midnight the cops came to one of our
neighbors apartments to arrest him. The were using the megaphone
telling him to come out with his hands up. At first I was really
annoyed because it woke me up and then they threw one of those tear
gas bombs (or something like that) into his house to make him come
out. That’s when I started to get just a little freaked out. It made a
really loud noise and there was a lot of yelling. So that lasted for
about 2 hours.
Then a couple days after that our roommates texted us while we were
studying and told us that there was a gunman in our area! So we had to
stay in until he was caught. He shot somewhere around 8 people before
he was finally caught.
One more crazy thing that happened, last night we went to find a
potential investigator around 8:00pm. When we got to their trailer
they were have a BBQ outside and invited us to eat with them. After
awhile of being there I started to get the feeling that we needed to
leave. I kind of ignored it at first and then it started getting
stronger and stronger. It was like someone was literally telling me
“You need to go!” Then one of the guys who was talking to us said “Se
mira incomova” which means “She looks uncomfortable”. And then I tried
to explain that we were late for something and we finally left their
house after that. When we were walking to our car I was telling my
companion that I felt like we needed to go and that the feeling wasn’t
going away. Right then we see a tow truck towing our car! So we run in
the middle of the road and stop him. He immediately let our car go and
told us to put a Book of Mormon on the dashboard next time and he
wouldn’t tow us. But it makes no sense because we were parked in the
visitors spot! Oh well, I am so glad we didn’t have to pay $400 out of
our own pockets! It’s amazing to me that the spirit warned me so
strong that we needed to go.
Unfortunately, Angie isn’t going to be baptized this Saturday. She
didn’t come to church this last week. But she still wants to so we
moved the date. We went to the visitors center to watch the Joseph
Smith movie and it was so amazing and powerful! I love the visitors
center and I am so grateful that we have it as a resource.
Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well! Love and miss you!
