Jesus and the adulterer

This week started out awesome, then took a nose dive haha. At the beginning of the week we had several good lessons a day, and 3 set baptismal dates (not particularly solid, but dates still). Then the second half of the week all our lessons cancelled, almost nobody who said they're were going to come to church, came and we have to change/push back all of our baptismal dates. And on Sunday there was President Taylor's final mission President fireside, and we could only go if we brought an investigator, so we asked a bunch of people but no one was really 100% for sure going so we weren't sure if we should go, we decided not to, but everyone that went was telling us how awesome it was, so we really wish we would have went lol. We had this one lesson with this big Hispanic guy with a bunch of tattoos, and he texted us the other day and asked us about abortion and homosexuals and all this stuff and he told is that the church wasn't for him. We'll we still had a lesson and we found out he was a little extreme on the subject, and had read Leviticus, all this stuff. We told him about the law of moses vs. The new testament and the story of jesus and the adulterer. Anyway by the end of the lesson, he had a change of heart and was way humbled, it was awesome. It was really cool.

Oak Cliff IS an awesome area with a ton of potential I think, but lately we haven't had much success! A lot of people aren't used to commitment I guess. 

We found this little creek thing behind a dam the other day at the park and we decided to explore it a little bit today. Other than that not much.

Love y'all!
