Week 3

Hey everyone! This week was actually pretty unexciting. We made a lot of street contacts and met a lot of really cool people. But almost every person we talked to either gave us false information or have been ignoring us, but such is the work. We did our job by planting the seed. Now it's up to them. We did meet one person who is super prepared to hear the Gospel. We've had two lessons with him and we actually got him on date! He might just be my first baptism. He asks all the right questions and recognizes that other churches only have some truth. I'm honestly really excited for him and know that as long as he has a strong desire to know the truth he will find it. We've had some pretty awesome clouds here, a little bit of rain and a lot of lightning on the distance. Apparently sometimes at night if you look at thunderclouds they'll glow bright orange because of the constant lightning. I hope I get to see that pretty soon! A lot of this week has been service based, on multiple occasions a member has asked us to come over and fix his computer problems, surprisingly I've actually been fixing his problems. Crazy huh? Saturday consisted of us fixing up a members rental property he took us to a buffet for lunch that was pretty good and then for dinner he took is to Monicalls Pizza, they have this sweet tasting Italian sauce that you dip your pizza in and it's actually pretty good. Then we went to DQ. The Dairy Queens out here don't sell food, only ice cream. It's really weird how many different things go on out here. And for being a flat state there are a whole lot of hilly roads. When we don't have the car we either take the bus or bike. The bus is faster but the bikes give us more teaching opportunities. When we have the car I've been the one driving so I can actually get to know my way around town. Something that my companion and I are planning on doing is putting together a fireside. We already put something in the local paper for it and we're going to invite everyone we come in contact with to it. It's not going to be easy putting it together but it will be worth it if we can get people to show up. Other than that not a whole lot has been going on. Talk to you all next week! -Elder Eddenfield
