Why hello friends and family!
Cowen has treated us well this past week. After a good day last Monday, we were able to get back to work and find a lot of success. Tuesday was great. We taught a couple of good lessons and were able to street contact a family and get a return appointment for later in the week. That same night we drove to Flatwoods to stay the night with the Flatwoods Elders. The next morning we woke up and drove to Charleston for zone conference, which was great! Once again we talked a lot about the Book of Mormon and got some good ideas on how to teach about it. We also had interviews with President Lindhart. He is such a great guy. I had a great interview and got to ask him a lot of questions and just had a good visit! We ended up going on exchanges with the zone leaders that same night. It was a very productive day, I'd say. I went with Elder Harward in Charleston. It was so great to see some new territory and I got to see some cool things. Elder Harward is a little person! For being such a little guy though, he sure can snore!! My gosh! He rattled that apartment! That was a long night! I had to go down stairs on the couch but I could still hear him! He is a very good missionary though and is super good at teaching the gospel. It was a long drive back home to Cowen the next day.The week ended really well! On Friday we were able to pick up a few more people and one really nice lady named Blinda. We had good lesson with her. We also found a girl named Kaitlyn who we taught and she said we could come back. We took another way home than the way that we got there and it was beautiful. West Virginia is a beautiful state.
Sunday was good! Church was long Haha but spiritual. We were able to take the sacrament to an older couple who used to live in Richfield and the old gal had a Wayne County Cookbook that she could not wait to show me! Small world! So that was cool. We had a few lessons that afternoon too. Some were a little better than others. Debra was trying to prove that everything in the bible was true. So we showed her about the Book of Mormon. Luckily her husband Donald is super chill and a really cool guy. We also saw Blinda again and that was good.
Spiritual Thought: 2 Nephi 25: 26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.The Book of Mormon was truly written by prophets and can bring anyone closer to Christ. The Book is blue the book is true!
