week 62, 60 weeks in Phoenix Mission, 12 weeks in Glendale
Dear friends and family,
This week was long, but awesome. It was really rainy and a lot of cool things happened! IT'S COOLING OFF!!! In other news, I've been a missionary for over 14 months now. Yeah if that's not crazy I don't know what is!! Both Elder Thaut and I are staying in the area for at least one more transfer. Our roommates, Elders Clough and Rodriguez, are also staying together for a third transfer! Our apartmentship cannot be separated! We will conquer Glendale! Also, no one in the whole zone was transferred. We must be doing something right, or something wrong. ;)
Here was my week!
Temp: 100°F (...RIGHT?)
"Excuse me, can we ask you just one question?"
"Yeah, sure. I have a minute."
"Awesome! If you could ask God one question, what would it be?"
He pauses a moment. "Probably where will I go after I die?"
"That's a great question. As missionaries and representatives of Jesus Christ, we can answer those questions for you, just as if God was telling you."
Right there, on a busy 27th Ave with cars whizzing by, we read with him Alma 40:11-13 which goes over where we will go after we die. The Spirit was strong after we testified and invited him to learn more. He gave us his name and address, but it turns out the address was wrong. But we shared and testified nonetheless, and if missionaries ever run into him again he will undoubtedly remember this experience.
|LOVE this! FLU SHOT!|
What a great week! So I'll be home today if anyone wants to email me...haha. I'm very excited to be here with a Elder Thaut for six more weeks. The members are excited too. Everyone tells us that they can tell we get along. President Griffin told our zone leaders that we would stay together because we are working well together. I'm a happy camper!
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
