Teaching the Restoration to Cats


Uhh yeah so basically I've resorted to teaching the Restoration to cats cause they listen better than the people of Hoosick Falls. And even the cats run away. But it's ok cause when people do listen it's the best thing in the world and it makes me so happy.

Ok General Conference is the greatest thing that has ever happened and I have more notes than I have ever taken. It's almost as if I am at a time in my life in which I have no idea what I'm doing and I need guidance. Crazy coincidence. Oh wait but then there is a talk about coincidences and how those don't exist that I LOOVEED and so turns out I really do just have no idea what I am doing. Ah I loved it so much though. How cool is it that we have modern revelation?? The answer is SO COOL. I don't understand why people don't want to hear about it. It's ok I'm not bitter. ;)

Umm remember the drunk guy from last week? Old man Stan. Yaaas. Love him. We visited him again and talked about everything from Temples to Elvis. And we sang Nearer My God to Thee with him on the porch and it made me so happy. And then he sang us Elvis and Beach Boys songs cause I told him I loved them and so basically me and Sister Morley were serenaded. I'll attach a video, hopefully you can all see it. Also New Yorker's say "yous" instead of you so it's the greatest.

One day me and Sister Morley were havin a rough go with the crazy people of Hoosick who think they are "all set" just cause they know who Jesus Christ is aha. I'm like yeah wow good for you but #SALVATION PEOPLE. Anyway. So we said a prayer to help us know where to go and then literally in the parking lot where we had just gotten out of our car, we saw this guy walking his dog and Sis M ran over to him and we taught him the Restoration and gave him a Book of Mormon. A real human being. Not a cat. So blessed.

Also we are teaching this awesome family, the mom's name is Kyle (yes Kyle) and she has three little boys who are the cutest people and we taught them the Plan of Salvation and it felt so good. We taught them how to pray too. I love teaching people. I get this feeling through the Holy Ghost that I call the "joy peace" feeling. The Gospel just makes me so happy. It's the same feeling I get when I am reading the Book of Mormon. Man, that book has so. much. power. Power to heal and bring peace and happiness, no matter the circumstances of the person reading it.

I really enjoy being a missionary. It is hard in ways I didn't expect, but it's all worth it to be out here and to teach people about the Savior and about the power of what happened to Joseph Smith. I know that he saw what he saw. I love testifying to people about that. And the Plan of Salvation. All of it ah. The church is true. Which is such an understatement but I spend all my time emailing my mom cause she's great. Ok peace out and have a great week!!! Ps. did I mention the church is true!!?? Ahhhh
