Bloody Noses

Hi everyone:  

Still in Fort Wayne:

What a week!  I don't even know where to begin...  Hmmm let's start with a funny story.  On Friday it was about 8:30 and we were stopping by to see a less active, but she wasn't home. We knew that we were in that area for a reason so we decided to walk around a little to see if anyone was out that we could talk to.  Very shortly we ran into this man who was walking his dog.  We started talking to him and randomly Sister Peterson got a major bloody nose. We didn't know what to do so she just stood there with blood dripping into her hands and I tried to tell him about our message. Unfortunately, he wasn't paying attention to my eternity changing message because Sister Peterson was bleeding, and laughing because the whole thing was so awkward. He kindly gave her his unused doggie bag to catch her blood.  We set up a time to come back, said a prayer with him and quickly ran to our car that was parked about the length of a football field away. After which I accidentally revved my engine at a couple about to kiss, and we got blood over everything.  Lucky there was a very kind member that lives close by who got her all cleaned up and gave us a life-time supply of tissues and a humidifier :) It was hilarious.

We also taught Cary and Angela the Plan of Salvation this week. And it blew their minds. It goes against a lot of what Cary learned as a young boy, so he had a lot of questions! But you could tell that it also brought them both a lot of relief. The next time we came by, we saw that Cary had looked at an Anti Mormon site that had a bunch of Bible scriptures to combat Book of Mormon scriptures. But before we could explain anything, Angela pulled out a bunch of Bible scriptures to defend the Book of Mormon! Apparently she had gotten on a website that had Bible scriptures to support the Book of Mormon. It was really awesome! And even though they still have lots of questions (especially Cary), they said that they would keep praying about it, and that they really have the desire to know. In fact, they kept saying "I'm not a Mormon yet..." and "When I get my answer that it is true", so they know, they just don't quite know that they know. Anyway, I am really excited for them! Sick kids kept them from church yesterday, but we will get them next week for sure! :) Keep praying for them!

Love you all!
