Edmond, Oklahoma- Week 102

This week was okay, not that much happening, but we did meet some really cool people- Lauren and Eric. So last week we met Lauren, we knocked on her door and she came out and started thanking us which we thought was a little weird so we were just like "umm, your welcome?" Then she explained that earlier that day, she let her dogs out, and the gate was open, and she fell asleep. So with us waking her up, she saw the gate was open, luckily the dogs stayed in the yard though. So we talked with her for a little more, and she said that we could come back next week, so we did and this time we meet, Eric, Lauren's boyfriend. He told us that Lauren told him about us, and thanked us. He explained that she is going through a hard time right now, and was glad for people like us sharing a message about hope. He said that they didn't go to church and wasn't sure if God existed or not, but really wanted to learn more. So we were able to give him a Book of Mormon, and left him with some scriptures to read, and he said that he would share them with Lauren. So that was a cool miracle that happened this week. Fourth of July was a fun p-day, the whole district and some other missionaries had a little party at the church, so we all brought food and played games the whole time! :) The rules President Mansell gave for the 4th, weren't very fun... we had to be home at 9:00, and spend the time after p-day (in the afternoon) proselyting, but of course we didn't see anyone, because no one is home! But on a good note, I was able to see a few fireworks from the apartment! :) We are meeting the new President tomorrow, and I'm getting ready... I'm going to take apart my bike today, so I'm slowly getting there!
