Well to start off I am being transferred to New Castle, Indiana so good bye Buckeyes (Useless nuts, referring to the people there) and Hello Hosiers (referring to the people that talk your ear off) I am still here in Montgomery and being transferred tomorrow! It's kind of sad because I feel like the work is finally starting to pick up.

This week I went to Skyline chili so that's what my subject line is about... look it up!

We put Alex on date this week and he is really starting to take this seriously, but still hasn't come to church!!!!

But the story I wanted to tell started back in week 3. We were knocking on a bunch of doors that day and I pulled my camera out and took a picture of a random house. My companion asked why I took the picture and I told him "right there lives the next person we are going to baptize" he said "alright then let's go talk to them"

We walk up to the door and knock and this super loud almost crazy lady comes out and says "Do you believe in spirits?" We talk a little bit about the spirit world and the Plan of Salvation. She then goes on to tell us about the day before someone committed suicide next door and she says that he is now haunting her house! We told her that we would come back to bless her home, but when we came back she wasn't home.... We tried by her house for more than a month and she was never there. Last week week we stopped in and she finally answered... We taught her the Restoration and promised that if she read the Book Of Mormon she would feel more safe at home. After the lesson she kept saying "Do not forget my book" she was so excited to start reading it! and I am a little upset that I won't be able to see her progress!!

I know that nothing happens coincidentally.

In Doctrine Covenants section 122 versus's 7-8 it says

7"And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather blackness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good."

8"The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?"

This is talking about Joseph Smith. He had so many things happen to him but it gives him experience... when you think things are bad then just remember that what you are going through is nothing compared to what Christ had to go through. Turn to him and he will help you!

Love you all shoot me an email about what you are up to!
