Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice greatly...

We biked a lot his week, luckily it wasn't raining and we met some people. 

One person pretty much told me through scriptures (the bible) that are women are stupid and that men shouldn't listen to them and that women can't teach the the teaching in the bible. 

I not going to lie, it was scary. He was a huge guy and he kept talking over me. So I just looked down at the scriptures read the last verse he gave me to read then I read the verse after and then I said " but the verse after that one says that men and women are equal..."  As I was saying this he hopped on his bike and yelled go home! 

I am in the worst part in Sacramento and nothing bad has happened except for that scary guy and the shooting some blocks down the way that happened a month ago.

Most everyone we are teaching do not seem to want to meet with us, but.....

There was this one man that we wanted to meet when we first came in and the people that lived there said he moved and we tried another time and the same result but a member told she had someone for us to teach and that she would take us to them. So she took us there and he was there then two days later he took the invitation to come to church.  He even bore his testimony!!  At the end of  church he told us that he wanted to come next week! Whaaaaaaat!!!

I finished 3rd and 4th Nephi.   I loved reading about our Savior and what he told those and the Americas. One if my favorite parts is when the Savior wept and prayed with the people. He loved everyone so much and that is what I love. I want to have that compassion and love that the Savior had for them. I already love everyone but I want to really see them as my brothers and sisters, children of our Heavenly Father.

I loved the new Christmas video the church put out this year.  Especially when they say... "Rejoice, rejoice,rejoice greatly...." I say those words so much that everyone know what I am going to say before I say it and beats me to saying it == but, the words remind me that I need to be joyful when I put on my name tag and talk to other about our Savior.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!
