So this week was wonderfully busy! I loved it. We did a lot of work with the members, which has been fun. We helped plan a fireside (and give the fireside haha) we visited a member who recently had a "mini-stroke", helped L prepare his first talk and helped the relief society with an activity. It was lot of fun. We also have been "less active hunting" We felt inspired to go to a nearby town called New Britain and there, we found a less active and his non-member family. It was awesome. We gave everyone copies of the Book of Mormon and left them with a homework assignment to read Alma 32. One of them is supposedly really interested and wants to come to church so we'll see what happens. It's been a great week.
So funny story, we were sitting in our car, parked on the side of the road when this guy came up (he seemed very intoxicated) to the window and asked for 35 cents. I told him we didn't have any change and he said, "That's okay, God bless you both. You're both beautiful." Then he pointed at me and said, "You're as beautiful as the sun." Then he walked away. Sister B and I burst into laughter. Gotta love hartford.
Speaking of Hartford, it's been treating us to a fireworks show every night this week. Clearly, the firework laws in Connecticut have to be different than those in Idaho because they sell big fireworks at walmart. All the hispanics buy them and launch them off at night, starting aroundbefore the sun is down. After we finish planning we open the windows and watch. We've seen some big fireworks, like commercial sized. I'm hoping to see a firework display battle one night, but it hasn't happened yet. It's one of the perks of living on the 19th floor in an apartment.
Well everything is going really well here! Sister B and I are still getting along well. We are always laughing and joking, but also having great spiritual moments together too.
Have a great week!
Oh, just for the record, I looked up Connecticut firework laws and fireworks are illegal, just like they are in Idaho, and yet, we still get a fireworks display every night. One night, right after are particularly big firework, we heard the cops go to the house it was launched at. We thought for sure the fireworks would be over, but no, 20 minutes later they launched another one. #hartford
