hello friends! this week has been very full. don't know how else to say it.
we're working with lots of people and some of them i just don't really know how to help. so. it's very odd for a missionary whose purpose is to invite and help to not be able to do those things with a person. interesting problems. good problems to have. but! it's out of my hands! i am but a instrument in the hands of someone far greater. He'll help them the best way he can.
we found eric! eric is anouther really dope dude. so great. we(elder west and i) met him while buying a snack on the far end of our area (eratap) while it was raining so he was kinda hidng under the store porch. contacted him but didn't really have any time to go and visit him until this past week. what a fantastic fellow. we taught him the message of the restoration and gave him a book of mormon. and then do you know what he did?! he read 18 whole chapters of that wonderful book in less than 2 days. holy good golly gosh. what a guy. and when we were sharing with him the message of the plan of salvation, some of the answers to life's big questions as answered in said plan, he had been pondering for a long time and the answers that he had come up with on his own were veryyyyy close to the truths as taught in the book of mormon. Wowe. what a friend. i got some seriously high hopes for him.
we're just working with so many people right now and all of them are just so grand i worry about all of them and love all of them and when they come and keep the commitments that we the missionaries give to them i can see how much it blesses their lives! oh my goodness that is so great. this gospel man. what a thing. what a blessing. what a great experience. so grateful to be able to come here and serve these wonderful people.
also im like a week and a half behind in my journal cuz we've been so busy. 😓😅
yay! that's all friends! till next week!
look it's my house! and me! and my ties! and elder gray! hi elder gray!
oooohhhhhhh scary snake in the middle of the road at night we stoned it dead.
