Renca 1 #6

Another week of walking for us  We have found a few more people and are teaching more often also.  We were going to have a baptism yesterday but our investigator came out with some doubts at the last second about coffee and tea.  She explained she doesnt feel like they are so bad that she will go to hell for it.  We tried explaining it better but we had a member with us who decided to argue with her about it so it was an hour long arguement with them two.  We kept trying to step in and say something to end it but they would just go right back at it.  It made us really frustrated and finally I stopped them both and said look we arent getting anywhere by arguing, lets end this lesson and we can get together another day to talk about it.  I also told her that if she wants to know that its a commandment, she needs to pray and ask.  We tried calling her yesterday after church to see why she didnt go and if we can get together another day and she just kinda said another day so we think she might be trying to avoid us.  It was a sad lesson to see somebody who has been talking to the missionariies for a few months now just give up on it all.  She was making a lot of progress too and now she just kinda dropped back.  We are going to try and have a more spiritual lesson with her later in the week too so that we can help her more.  We also had a lesson with Roxanna yesterday in english again.  We asked her how she felt when she read the BOM and she said good but had a hard time understanding the old english.  BUT the good thing is that she read more than we assigned and she told us she really has a desire to know if its true.  She said she reads metaphysics books so its hard for her to believe in God.  We read the story of Aaron teaching the father of king Lamoni and asked to her to pray to God and ask if He is God.  It was a really good lesson and shes making a lot of progress too.
For my bday last week we went to a non member family house and had a dinner.  I´ll send some pics but they made this big dinner and a really good cake and also gave me a big chocolate bar with almonds as a present.  It was a lot of fun and also Kanahele and Moore called me to say happy birthday which was good to hear from them.  Moore also told me that my last convert with Kanahele was talking to her dad about doing something on sunday.  She told her dad (who isnt a member) that she doesnt break the sabbath because its the Lord´s day.  It was good to hear she is still doing really good in the church and staying strong. 
Thats about it for me this week.  We are still working hard and seeing fruits from our labors.

Here are a few photos we've gotten over the last several weeks:
