This week we have been working hard with one of our investigators named Chris, you would be amazed to see the progress this man has made. The first day we ran into him and taught him, his house was a wreck, he seemed high on something and just struggling. But in the past couple of weeks with us working with him, he has been reading the scriptures, praying, going to church. We even took him to a baptism this week! He has committed to stop smoking and living the Word of Wisdom. This man has come so far and I'm so grateful for the opportunity I have to see how much this gospel can change someones life for the better.
Elder Reed and I Me were able to preform lots of service this week. We took care of the trash at a festival in Siloam Springs which is a little town with a population of 15,000. After the service in Siloam Springs, all of the missionaries that came down went to lunch together and we ended up going to a casino.... BUT there was a buffet there for $8.00 and it was probably the cheapest, nicest meal I have ever had so it was worth it. We also set up a ballet studio. We were even able to go to a ballet show because of our service, now let me tell you I don't know if I would have ever gone to a ballet performance off the mission. Let me tell you, ballet is not for me... Me and elder Murdock were trying so hard not to laugh all night at 2 guys that were performing.
I have had so many things thrown at me this week, we will all have trials, but I am so grateful to have this Gospel in my life! Like I said, I love watching how this gospel changes lives for the better, including mine! Thank you for all of your Love and Support!
Impressions of Fayetteville Arkansas
- Erratic crazy thunderstorms are pretty normal and often out here!
- A lot of people out here have BIG fires on their front yard grass and leave them unattended, but since its so humid the grass doesn't catch fire.
