Shot at, yelled at, and snored at

Howdy all!
I'm much tired this week. I've been shot at, yelled at, and snored at. But I'm surprisingly very happy in spite of it all. 
Ok, details on the past week's happenings: been studying pretty hard so far. I'm very excited to study some more tomorrow. I've learned a whole bunch of stuff that I didn't know before. For example, the ultimate act of charity was the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Did not know that before. Also learned we need to have faith in people; after all, even God was a person once.
So, being yelled at. We were tracting a neighborhood in the northern part of our area, and we found out that there we Jehovah's Witnesses in the same area. Now, it's nothing personal with Jehovah's Witnesses, but we seem to have more doors slammed in our faces after they've gone through the area, so we decided to leave and find a better area to tract. well, on our way out, we ran into a really nice chap from another church who was out spreading the word (modernised gospel of John), and we stopped to talk to him. suddenly this lady comes storming up to us and rants at us for waking her up. I guess she figured we'd woke up the dogs and the dogs woke up all the other dogs in the neighborhood, or something like that. 
we felt bad for her, and it kind of wrecked our day, so when we finished talking to the guy we left the area, pulled over in our car, and prayed for her. we all felt better about life but even more sad for her, because she was obviously hurting inside.
so that was getting yelled at.
Snored at is pretty boring. I won't go into that one.
And lastly, getting shot at; that was actually pretty funny. We were on bikes because our Designated Driver was at a leadership training meeting, and as we cycled out of our apartment complex a couple of kids, couldn't have been more than ten or twelve years old, pointed guns at us and started firing. I was really quite scared for a moment until I realised that they were using laser tag guns. :) Not scared after that.
We found some pretty cool people this week. one chap, by the name of Nuke (cool name, innit?) we met at a bus stop and got to talking. He asked us about repentance, and how people could repent after committing the same mistake over and over. We set up an appointment and taught him about it, and we have another return appointment ... sometime, I'm sure... (nice planning, eh? I know we wrote it down somewhere... oh look, my planner) at 5 on Friday. 
Speaking of Friday, we're going to go visit a local seminary class and teach the restoration at like 6:00 Friday morning. :) 
Love you!
