How to NOT keep an investigator, Pine City...Crime City, Prayers Needed!

False Advertising with Pine Hills/ Safe Neighborhoods claims!
Well, this week was definitely a strange, unforgettable one!! The week started off pretty slow with appointments falling through or people not interested in the lessons we had to share. It was kind of stressful! But it's crazy how things that happen can really determine how the day or week will go. First off we've been teaching a guy (Luis) since I've been in Ocoee. Early last week, we decided to go see him again. During the lesson, Elder Walker pretty much flipped out on him.  Elder Walker was basically telling Luis that we don’t want to hear his drama or teach him if he isn’t going to stop.  Luis got upset and told us never to come back.  Ugghh!  That whole thing was quite upsetting to me.  

That was just one of the many events that took place this week! One of the most memorable is that both sets of Ocoee Elders were together one of the mornings.  We decided to all go and teach Edwina at JMart.  On our way there, we passed stabbing crime scene at a convenience store.  That was pretty sketchy!  Then about 15 minutes later, we basically walked into another….But all is well and we are all OK!  Phew!!! 

Jessica had her Baptismal interview this week also!!! And she is still shooting for this Saturday for her baptism.  This week is the "Waters of Mormon Stake Wide Baptism" event.  So please keep her in your prayers that she can make that day! She is SO ready and she just has to overcome her smoking addiction and social anxiety. If you could keep her in your prayers that would be much appreciated!

Elder Pelo also called us his week from Manhattan NY!!! He had to leave a few weeks ago (medical leave because of his back) and he is living in NY currently with his family right behind the Temple! He's having a good time, but he really misses being on the mission. He's also having spinal surgery this week so keep him in your prayers as well! I was grateful to hear that a mission is way better than going home early. How boring it basically is at home when you aren't working or in school! So yeah!

And I also saw a Rolls Royce Limo like yesterday, AWESOME!!! But anyway, that's been my week. Sketchy, somewhat eventful, and very stressful!! I hope you all had an AMAZING Valentine’s Day!!! I'm thankful for all the love and support I've received and continue to receive! You guys are the best EVER! Have a great and swell week everyone! Love and miss you!

-Elder A. Olson
