For everyone's information, today my typing is terrible so if there are any mistakes that my mother does not catch, it is OK, you can forgive her and realize that she is dealing with a crazy person's e-mail writing that needs some help in the typing skills.
It has been a crazy week; so we found out at the beginning of the week that our investigator with a baptismal date that is going to be baptized, doesn't live in our area. She lives in a different zone all together, and because of this we are no longer teaching her and she is no longer going to be baptized by us... ;( This is okay, though, because she is still getting baptized. This is all that matters, and besides she is having a potluck with all sorts of people there. It will end up being the biggest baptism ever, because there will be 3 wards represented there. It is going to be crazy go nutz! With that being said, we will not be blessed to see a baptism this month, because we have been unable to help people keep their appointments. :( But since I like to look at the bright side, here is the good news. Our zone, which was hurting the past few months with baptisms and motivation has stepped it up like hardcore. We will be seeing by the end of the month 9 or 10 baptisms which is fantastic! This is going to break the high water mark in the Cordova zone and win them a nice pancake breakfast from President Lewis!!! Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this breakfast, but I will celebrate from afar.
I want you to imagine yourself in Downtown Sacramento, if you don't know what it looks like, imagine yourself in any downtown setting... Thank you for your participation, if you are not participating, shame on you. I hope that you just find yourself crying because you are not being a team player and having fun like the rest of us... :P
Now imagine downtown anywhere, there are cars running in every which direction, there are pedestrians running out into the street, cars skidding to a stop, and the loud horns of very angry drivers blaring in the ears of the silent imaginer... can you picture this? If not, let me know, because I will put more detail in next week. Amid this crazy town life of always being on the go, there are two wonderful missionaries, who when they see people, are just dying to show people the truth.
Now in your imaginary world, please place this evil menace who just does his job day in and day out, and causes lots of headache and grief for those who are trying to work in downtown. This evil menace goes by the title of "Meter Maid!!" Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnn... (Que The lighting)...(Where is my lighting...) *CRACK, BOOM, FLASHING LIGHTS!!!*
Meter Maid has been causing havoc all over town. Telling people that they stink at parking and that they should pay their ridiculous fees. And while they tell people that they should be better at parking, they just laugh and mock them because they are enjoying making life miserable for those who are just trying to get the word out... Then Meter Maid spotted these two nice, adorable, good loving, always laughing, happy missionaries, who wouldn't break any rules if they were forced to. Then he zeroed in on his new target... ;(
The unsuspecting missionaries left their car, thinking that on Saturdays there is free parking, trying to preach the good word, and Meter Maid comes up to their vehicle.
"OH would you look at that, their meter is expired...hum, I wonder what we should do now... I know, how about we give them a nice fine, because this sign only says that Sundays are free...MWAHHHH!!!!"
When the two missionaries return they are happy and go lucky, when they looked at the front of their car windshield, it turned into that scene from the Lord of the Rings when Frodo screams out for Gandolf when he dies fighting the Balrog. This was the reaction of these two unsuspecting missionaries... It was a sad day indeed. Now Elder Wheeler has to pay a $42.50 ticket to the state of California because his parking skills stink... SAD DAY!!!
There are a lot of things going on, but it is just the usual missionary work. I don't know what to tell you other than.. We are going to break high water this month and you better believe it is going to be awesome!!!
p.s. MOM!!! I love you TYPOS!!! I think I did pretty good today!
