Hey Everyone....Happy Memorial Day! What a great day to take some time out and remember those who have died while serving the country! Let me tell you about some crazy stuff that happened this week!
One of the members of our ward that we've been working with traveled to Sacramento and met Grandpa Kuhnen at Recycling Industries! Check them out:
This week we taught Chris, a new investigator who moved in with a member, about the Plan of Salvation. He loved it! It answered many of his questions about life and it's purpose. He had read a little of the Book of Mormon and liked it too. He believes this is the church for him, but wants to wait one more week before he commits to be baptized. So stay tuned to hear more about him!
We had to drop a lot of our investigators because they weren't progressing and we're working on going through the area book to sort through the potentials we've found over the transfer. This transfer ends onand I think I'll be staying in Rockwood so that's nice. I have some plans as to how we can really beef this area up. I'll talk more about that in subsequent weeks.
We were out findingand we ran into this guy named Church. Yeah..his name is Church. He is the funniest guy ever. We talked for probably an hour about how gay San Fransisco is. Somehow we ended up talking gospel and he was interested in our idea of repentance and that it's something you work for. He was raised with the idea that you give 10 hail marys and call it good. We set a return appointment for so we shall see how that goes. Planning on teaching the restoration.
So in the food department this was the week for authentic southern food that you only find here. We got invited to a members home and she served chicken wings, pork rib, corn, mashed potatoes....and gator tail...and frog legs. I can now finally say I've had alligator tail and frog legs. The legs tasted like fish, and the gator tail tasted like chicken. It was pretty good. But my stomach did feel a little uncomfortable afterwards, but I'm all good now. We have so many leftovers from ...it's a weird thought to think that I have 20 frog legs and part of an alligator tail in my refrigerator.
For Memorial Day today we got invited to the local Freemason lodge for a homemade biscuit and gravy meal and to hang out with some of our investigators. Then we went shopping at Wal-Mart and then hit up the disc golf course at Roane County Park. Now here in a couple minutes we are headed to a different investigators house for a BBQ! What a great day! I hope you all are having a splendid Memorial day!
Until next week!
