The man says he doesn't understand why bad things happen to good people and why God would let murders happen. I instantly thought of Alma 24. I asked if I could share a message from The Book of Mormon that would answer his questions. They said yes. They are such a sweet couple that come from a rough area in Aurora, CO. We set up another time to come back. :)
We are now teaching this man who is 28, has an alcohol addiction, and just got a dui. His family is from Utah and have probably been praying for him for years. We went to teach him, but he was drunk. He doesn't look or act like a 28 year old. He looks like he is literally 14. Sister Gage and I are very blunt with him. I think everyone in his life has tip toed around him and beat around the bush. My favorite line Sister Gage said to him was, "In order for us to actually have you, we have to see you twice a week, and you have to do everything we say." haha I was dying inside. haha. She's a hoot. I love it. He came to church.
We had a lot of less actives at church. It was so wonderful! Sister Jo Hatch was at church. She came back to Colorado to tour her mission. It was so weird to see her again. She is sad she isn't still a missionary.
