General Conference weekend was amazing! Really Inspiring!! It made a week full of cancelled appointments so much better! We have high hopes for this week! Good things to come.
The weather is finally starting to cool off! And the tourism here is starting to slow down. But now…hunting season is starting and that’s a really big deal around here. We even had some elk ribs the other day!
One day last week, we were walking and this random older lady just opened her door and invited us in! Ha-ha her name was Martha and she is actually studying with the Jehovah's witnesses right now. She is thinking about joining them. But, she wanted to talk with us and was asking all these questions about how there should be just one religion and it shouldn’t be this confusing to find it. In fact the way she was talking she sounded just like the young Joseph Smith. It was amazing to hear her story. She is one who is prepared! So’ we went and visited her a few days later. She wasn’t feeling too well at the time. So we just asked if there was anything we could do for her. She said yes actually. She had a Jehovah’s Witness party and she needed to bring 3lbs of coleslaw to it. Ha-ha! She gave us $20 and asked us to run and get it. She’s older and her knees are bad so it’s difficult for her to get out. Of course, we said yes. But, we couldn’t get to the store, do we asked a member of our church to help and go and buy coleslaw for us. (They were happy to do it) It was all quite funny but hey it was an opportunity to serve! Ha!
Anne, who we started teaching last week, is doing really well. She loved watching general conference and is so amazed by the spirit that this gospel brings. She is really an awesome person! This gospel can change so many lives! But many people don’t realize it. When people slam their door or are just flat out not open to us... sometimes I wonder, do they realized what they are missing? Do they realize that we have the most amazing gift to share? We will do all we can and people will still reject or turn away from the gospel. It breaks my heart, but we just keep moving on serving and finding those who will embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ! The mission is the best thing ever and I love my job!
