November 11th 2013

Oh it was another really good week! I am loving it here in the East because it is so crazy! I have forgotten how nuts most of the people are over on this side of town! It is so much fun to just go out to talk to people because you hear the craziest stories and ideas. One thing that Elder Simpson have been doing is just talking to people when our car is stopped out the window! We have had some crazy responses! Ha-ha

We had some other cool things that have happened this week. One funny story, I have been joking for about 6 months that I have been praying for my companion to get sick so that I can get a good nap in. Well it happened this week. Elder Simpson got sick on Wednesday right after we trained our zone the whole morning so we went back and he was going to take a nap. I fully intended to get a lot done during that time but I decided I would go for a small nap. About 3 and a half hour later I woke up and felt great! ha-ha We went out and did some work but he still felt sick so we came back at 9, planned, read from the Book Of Mormon, and then went back to sleep at 10! And I still slept like a baby! Ha-ha it was wonderful!

We had a Mormon Heritage Festival that the State of Arizona put on this Saturday! That was super cool! We were able to go help run everything as missionaries but we weren't allowed to wear proselyting clothes or proselyte. Instead we wore service clothes and the yellow Mormon helping hands vests! It was way fun! Elder Simpson and I were in charge of the children's rodeo and then we supervised the clean up! It was super cool! It is always good to do something different like that and it was a good experience for a lot of people!

We had a really cool miracle this week with finding! We were going to have dinner with our Elders Quorum President and afterwards he took us to one of his home teaching appointments! It was cool because the man he home teaches is a convert of a few years and is dating a non-member named Lorean. Our EQP had asked her if she wanted to come to the lesson. She agreed and while there we shared a short message and asked her if she would be interested in taking the lessons! She agreed and we had a really good lesson with her after. Then on Sunday she went in and spoke with the bishop with her member boyfriend and after the Bishop came up with us and told us that she was basically baptized already and she already considers herself a Mormon! It was sweet! Miracles happen if you work hard!

That will be it for this one! The church is true!
