The Spirit Goes Home at 9:30 and So Do Missionaries (even Elder Reese!)

Hey Guys!
So this week was interesting to say the least and a little bit of a downer.

First off, yes the zone leaders are still living with us and my companion is pretty stressed out. Me and him talk and laugh all day though!

I have a pretty cool story. We were walking home Thursday night and we have to enter the house before 9 30! We weren't really pushing for time but we didn't have very much to lose! Fairly close to our house there was a concert in the park. My companion asked me if we should go check it out and just pass by! I first said yes. We started walking there and then I decided we didn't have time and told him that the Spirit goes home at 9 30 so we should probably follow it! He agreed without argument. 

We walked in the house and we were putting our stuff down when we heard gunshots and screaming. There was a gunfight at that same concert and 3 people died. I know for a fact that somehow we would have been right there had we not changed our minds. It was a very uplifting experience! 

As for the baptism....yea that didn't happen. 

She had a problem with one of the questions in her interview. She had to have an interview with someone with the keys to do it. We did that Wednesday and she was happy and ready and felt way better! 

Thursday night before the baptism we passed by and her husband (who is a member and our ward mission leader) and her were happy and ready. 

The day of the baptism I got a phone call from the President of the relief society. She told me that they called the baptism off. There was a misunderstanding between her and her husband, so needless to say are trying to fix it! 

I also invited you to hangouts!

I wouldn't be surprised if that chair gives him back problems. It is from a garage sale not Office Depot. Also, he is old. (Bill's work chair is one I got at a garage sale and is causing him some back problems)

The introduction to the Book of Mormon is what we use a lot. There are promises in the last 2 paragraphs. It talks about what you need to do and what will happen if you do it. You will recieve a testimony of the Book of Mormon if you read it with a open heart! 

Next Sunday I will know if I am staying or going and Monday I will do my staying or going! 

As for my package. I would love an alpha smart that I mentioned (I'm still not sure what this is). I believe now there is one with applications. Don't get me that one I can't have it. Just a normal one! Hot Cheetos,Takis, jerky any other things you would like to send me! A lot of snacks! Tie tacks are always accepted as well as ties! 

Anyways, I love you guys! I am going to have to finish my emails later because this internet is closing! 

Con Amor,
Elder Reese
