Another Fine Week

I can't believe it's been a week already! This one flew by. Not too much happened here in Troy and Libby. We had some pretty good lessons this week with awesome people. One in particular was with Chris Watts. He is a huge boxer and peels logs for a living. He doesn't look like someone that is super interested in the gospel, but when we met with him he told us he knows that there is something missing in his life. We told him how church, reading his scriptures, and praying can help him gain a relationship with Heavenly Father. After a long chat he held up the Book of Mormon that we had given him and said that he knows that this is what he is missing in his life. He's super willing to learn and do whatever he can to gain a relationship with God. He's super awesome and has a lot of potential. Other than that not much happened teaching wise. We saw some moose though! It was so awesome, we saw a mom and her calf. I have some awesome pictures on my camera but you guys wont get those ones. It's too much work and takes to long to upload them to the computers.(Sorry not sorry) We also saw two deer that had been mauled by a mountain lion. One was very dead, the other was still alive and had its guts hanging out its side. It was pretty sweet! We also had a member that was in line before us at McDonald's buy us apple pies. That was super nice and made our dinner even more unhealthy! I love you all lots! Have an amazing week!
