Hello supertubuloso family!
This week we taught a Kylie, who is sixteen. We watched the Restoration with them and the whole family watched. I had never seen the dad before, so that was good he was there. They also fed us while we were there. They were all in the back of the room and we were in the front, so it seemed like they were not watching, as we had seen the dad on his computer, and the mom working on desert. After it was over they all said with one accord that it was a great video. They had been sucked into it and really enjoyed it. They really liked the member we brought with us. They told him that he should come back next time and that he should bring his wife with. That's just what we wanted. I love it how that works out.
Something funny that happened was while we were riding our bikes; Elder Walker's bike had a serious breakage, in the which his gear shifter ended up in his spokes. Needless to say we were pretty well stranded. It was raining, too. Fortunately Wal-Mart was nearby so we took shelter there. We called on a member with a truck to give us a ride. I don't remember if I told you, but two weeks ago we had a very similar situation, almost exact. We had called on this same member. Now the response he gave when we called him will make sense. He answered the phone and said "who's bike broke this time?" It was really funny. He gave us a ride and took us to Wendy's to eat.
Do you know how much fun it is to ride a bike in the rain? When it is warm out and then it rains; and you neglected to bring a rain coat, however your scriptures you took care to keep them safe, it is extremely fun to bike and get soaking wet. What is better is it will rain super hard for about ten minutes, then the sun will come out for about an hour and dry you off, then it will rain again following the same pattern. I think it is fun.
I love you all! May the Spirit be with you!
Elder Durrant
