Elder Tyler Fullmer – Movies

This week has been really weird after Christmas. With all that’s led up to new years and we just get to sit at home. It’s a rule that we can’t go out for New Year’s. That does mean however that we get to stop working at 6. For us here in the office that means a full day pday again. We’re going to watch Rango and the Blind Side tonight…..probably in Portuguese which is less fun than one would think. Movies just aren’t as cool when you are seeing them dubbed over. Because you expecting to hear one voice and another comes out. It’s weird but It nice to know that when I can get back I can bore you guys by asking you guys to put on Portuguese subtitles. So start practicing hehe. Once again it’s raining and what can you do. Its weird how missionaries just get to the point where rain and other things just go unnoticed.

Yes mother’s day is around the corner and before you know it we’ll be talking again. At that point however I’ll have over a year and to make things even crazier did you know that we only have 2 more phone calls left. Mother’s day and the Next Christmas. It’s odd to see how far I’ve come in such a short time. President has given me the go ahead to start thinking of names to give him for the next financial secretary. When the time comes I’ll give him three names and hell pray about them and then the lord will let us know who I am supposed to train.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how little time we get to serve missions and how fast that small amount of time seems to be going. At times it seems too fast but it just means that we have to be harder workers so that none of that time gets lost. I’ve been trying to make what I call mini lessons. Messages that would last 2-5 minutes and then we could give them to people who say they don’t have too much time to listen to us so that maybe we can get into more houses and have the chance to get more people excited to hear the others. I want to have ones ready about prophets and important differences like that. Things that really set us apart and show people why the Restoration is so important. Sadly the hardest part is selling my comp on the idea. We got into a fight this last week when I brought the idea up. I must admit that I think the idea is golden and you know me with that in mind I got a little locked up. He then made the defense that we could teach a full lesson in 5 minutes. So I asked him to give me one. He then rushed through the first lesson in a little under 2 minutes and gave me what I thought was an answer just to say “told you so”. So then I made the wrong choice and said “well you missed this, that , you just said this, didn’t say that…’ Well as you can probably tell that didn’t go over too well.

I haven’t brought it up since. I’ve been trying to find a nicer way to do it next time because I will admit we were both being idiots that day. I’m not saying that I don’t like me comp but there have been many ties where we have just clashed. Anyways don’t worry about me your son is asking friends everywhere he goes. We did so many contacts this week it is unbelievable. We met some really crazy Seventh Day Adventists though. We started to go this area that is full of them it blows my mind. We met a crazy lady who has about 50 stray dogs and one lady who will not get baptized for the following reasons. 1. She wears make up (which is of course a sin), 2 She can’t bear to be saved without her son, 3 She wants to stay perfect after baptism and she knows she won’t do that. So her wish is that when Christ comes again he will tell her that although she wasn’t baptized “her sins are forgiven her” just like the woman Christ didn’t stone for fornication. We then asked her what happens if it can’t be like that and she simply said the then she fine with that. So there was not much to do with her seeing as she felt up said she does and will not believe in our church. Oh well I’ll let you guy go.

Abração,

Elder fullmer
