November 24, 2014

It has been a good week. We have spent a lot of our time finding and have been blessed with some neat new people to teach. We found a couple of teenage boys and a super cool lady named S. We knocked on her door and said "sorry to bother you," and she said, "No, you're not!" But she wasn't mad and we talked to her for a few minutes through her screen door and mentioned some things about the Restoration. When we talked about truths being twisted and lost following Christ's ascension and the death of the Apostles, she got all excited and stepped outside. She said she's always kind of thought that. We were able to teach her a lot on her porch and she shared that she's been doing a lot of seeking and praying lately. By the end, she was pretty emotional. It was really neat and the Spirit was definitely there. Hopefully we can teach her in the future and something will come of it. I really believe it will happen. We had a couple of exchanges this week. I spent time with an Elder in Urbana and Springfield, Ohio. I am really getting a good tour of the smaller cities and towns lately. :) One of our zone leaders also came to work with me in our area one day. Both exchanges went well and were good learning experiences. W. and D. are still getting hung up with the Word of Wisdom. It is too bad because they really have the desire to be baptized. It will work out eventually, though. We had a really good stake conference this weekend. Elder Seldon, and Area 70 was there. He had some great remarks and was funny as well as spiritual. He said several times that Elder Holland calls this "the Church of the Happy Ending" because we know the outcome, which I really liked. I hope you all have a good week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
