Let's see...so to get started...Teresa has dropped us :(I had mentioned last week that she helped us throw all her cigarettes away in the dumpster, and it was such a huge miracle! But then that night she walked to the store and bought a pack of cigarettes, and the next morning she texted us several times and basically told us that she wanted all her stuff back and that she didn't want to come to our church anymore. Well, knowing Teresa has some mental disabilities, we thought if we just went over to her apartment and talked to her a little bit we would be able to get her back to her senses...because she was obviously having some horrible withdrawals. So we went to her place that night (Monday) and she immediately told us to leave and that she didn't want to talk to us or see us ever again unless we brought all her stuff back...(She was smoking while we were there) We tried to tell her how sorry we were and that we weren't trying to hurt her or offend her in any way! We were just trying to help her to be happy and come closer to Jesus Christ. She wouldn't look at us in the eye, and most certainly didn't let us even give her a hug. When we tried, she yelled at us and told us not to touch her. She claims that we lied to her about where we put her stuff because she went and looked in her dumpster where we put her things and couldn't find them, so now she hates us... :( It broke our hearts. When we left her apartment we just started crying. It was so sad. And we haven't talked to her at all since then. We've been praying very hard that her heart will be softened and that she will forgive us, but we shall see.
Anyways, I gotta get going so I will talk to you all next week! Love you so much! Hope you're doing well!
