Elder Frosty

Hello everyone!

This [week] was a lot of finding and talking with people and meeting all of the other elders’ people that they were working with.  But we were able to move into their room because it was bigger and had enough room for all of our stuff to go into the closets.  So Tuesday through Thursday it snowed and on Wednesday from about 2pm until the next morning, we had to stay in our apartments because of the snow and bad drivers, mostly bad drivers because it was like an inch of snow, but whatever.

We called a lot of people, like 60 calls or something.  Then I got really bored when we ran out of people to call.  We decided to make a snow man and so for the next hour we made a snow man.  His name was Elder Frosty, so we were in a three some for a day.  Then like a snowman, he melted away.  :-)

Friday was a weird day.... we talked to one of the less actives in the trailer park and asked her how she liked church and she started telling about how she went to this waterfall and they were taking these really good picture by it and how she could see through the snow and see rocks and stuff.  As we walked away me and my companion were like, "what happened!?"  Then we went to Publix and saw this family that was looking for work and such so went over to say a prayer with them.  They were from India and talked with an accent.  We started to say a prayer and they all begin praying, all of them at once.   I was so shocked I stopped and just stood there while my companion laughed at me.  I never had that happen [before].  Anyway, I was kinda weirded out by that just because it had never happened before or something.

Then we went and taught an investigator and we were talking about belief and what they believe and the wife was telling us how she didn’t believe that you need to do anything.  You just need to be a good person and that is what God wants you to do.  She didn’t believe she needed to read the Bible let alone the Book of Mormon and didn’t need to go to any church.  So I asked her how she communicated with God and she said she can just feel him and that’s how she communicates with him.   I was so frustrated....  

Then on Sunday we were blessed to have Mary and Joseph come to church and since it was fast and testimony week and since it was ward temple week everyone talked about the temple and everyone talked about how families can be together forever.  My companion and I were like well this could go really good or really bad.  But we have faith that that was what they needed to hear and so we hope they enjoyed it.

We were able to meet with [Joe] last night and read from 2 nephi 31 and talk about the gospel.  It was really a laid back lesson.  Really he’s not super interested in baptism right now.  Sports and school are keeping him busy so we are kinda sad about that.  But he is going to be baptized at one point soon in his life.

Thank you all for the prayers and support you send our way.  Love you all take care!  Keep the Faith!
