Satan is so crazy!! (Dec 6, 2010)

Dear Family,
This week has been a pretty good week! We were able to have some good lessons and the church has an activity every year for the community where they have the nativities in the cultural hall of the chruch. Basically what we do in our stake but a thousand times better. They do it here for a whole week and they close down the building for 2 weeks to set up and they had almost 4 hundred nativities there. It was so beautiful! Don't worry mom I took some pictures for you! I even saw 4 nativities that you own yourself mom! It made me excited. We took our english class to that and they really enjoyed it! Then on Sunday we took some of our investigatores and watched the Christmas broadcast afterwards! it was really really good.
After the broadcast we went to see a referral that the English Sister Missionaries had given us and we were having a really good lesson with them! It was a father, Carlos, his son, Javier, and Javiers girlfriend. Javier was asking us so many questions about what is a mormon and what is that you believe and just good questions. He had been on before and just didn't understand how to use and stuff. We are talking in english to because they all spoke English and Javiers girlfriend didn't speak spanish. So I am just about to talk about the Book of Mormon and how if you read and pray about it that God will tell you what is true and Carlos' wife comes in out of no where and basically just starts telling us we were going to go to Hell and that we add more to they bible and that the Book of Mormon was fake and not real and that we were not welcome in her home. That we belived in a different Jesus and just all the anti that she "knew". So we just apologized for intruding and we thanked them and we left. As we were leaving though we could see that Javier was uncomfortable with what just happened and that he wanted to talk to us some more. It was just so weird that she came in out of absolutley nowhere to keep us from sharing about the Book of Mormon. It was wierd because our whole lesson was them asking questions and non of it was us. I just am so surprised at how much persecution the Book of Mormon gets for claiming to be Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I just don't see who wouldn't want to read something that is claiming to be something about the very man that is going to save them at the last day. The same Man that they have so much faith in, The same Man who has so much love for them that he will never turn away. I just hope that one day it will be easier to share the truthfullness of the Book of Mormn.
I know that the Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and I know that as we read it and pray about it with a sincer heart God will talk to us through the Holy Ghost and we can recieve a spiritual witness that it is true.
I hope all is doing well and that you all had a very good thanksgiving. And Have a Merry Christmas I will talk to all of you on the 25th! My address for anyone that is wondering is going to be 304 East Fairview Ave Montgomery Al 36105
I love you all!
Love Elder Haws.
