Blessed be the Drunkards

Hey everyone how is it going? I'm doing really good. 

We had a pretty good week. They funniest thing happened. 

We were walking down a hill and this super drunk guy yelled at us and said, "come here!" We didn't really want to come there, and he walked over to us. He came up to us and said, "I'm a dunkard! And I know that you are with Jesus. I want you two to put your hands on my head and to bless me and take the Devil out of me." 

While he was talking to us he was shaking our hands and he put our hands on his head. It was really weird. We told him that we could come by and teach him, and help him get over his addiction. He didn't want that so much, he just wanted us to bless him right there on the street. So maybe we will pass by another day and teach him about the word of wisdom.

But yeah it was a good week. We are working hard and finding lots of people. Im really loving my new area. The members are working really hard with us.

Have a great week!

American Pancakes and Repentance! Two Great Tastes That Go Great Together

Hey There everyone. This has been a very interesting week! 

First of all my comp and have discovered a new finding technique. I think I told you guys that I made pancakes before. Well, I've perfected the recipe. They are kind of like grandma's pancakes now. So when ever we find members, less actives or investigators, we tell them, "you know what, I will come here next week and teach you how to make American pancakes. But the deal is you have to bring an investigator over for us to teach." It works really well! A lot of people say "no" to being taught about Jesus Christ, but no one says "no" to pancakes. And usually when people are eating pancakes, it is a lot easier for them to listen. 

My comp and I have being focusing on teaching repentance more than anything this week. It has been going really well. I had my testimony of repentance strengthened a lot this week. I know that repentance is the only true way to happiness. Without repentance we have nothing. I'm so grateful for the opportunity that God gives us to repent. I love you all. And I hope that you have a great week!
