Just like always I'm glad its Monday and I am able to hear from all of ya!
First things first, I wanted to thank everyone for supporting me on my mission and all.but I will be coming home this week. I broke my arm from a biking accident and the doctor said it will take too much time to take care of out here. April Fools….hahah! Of course (you know I couldn't pass up that opportunity.)
Cowen has treated us pretty good this week...we started off the week with finding a really cool guy name Nick. We were looking at a stream for some crawfish when he came walking by with his dog. We ended up teaching him and set a return appointment for this week. I couldn't help but think of the Savior when he told Peter that he would make him a fisher of men...later after His crucifixion he told him again to Feed His Sheep. But hey if looking craw fish gets us a new investigator, I won't complain Haha.
The rest of the week was pretty normal. Lots of tracting and walking around. We got chased by a dog until the owner came and got her. We talked to him for a bit, and right when we got up to leave the dog jumped back down and bit Elder William's shoe. We met up with a recent convert and talked to her all morning long...she was a very nice woman with such a strong testimony. We are excited to work with her and start teaching one of her friends soon.
We had a cool district council up in Flatwoods as well this weekend...it was very spiritual, and we always learn so much from one another. We watched a cool video. What I got from it was the importance of ministering and being there for others. It's an important part of our church. Love God and Your neighbor.... two of the greatest commandments from God.
Sorry that this one is so short!
Just know that I love ya’ll
Love Elder Brian
