Desperately seeking mail!

21 January 2013


So things have been going pretty well.  We serve in Gilbert but live across a main street so technically we live in Mesa.  but the address I gave you is the one that we live at.  That is so exciting to hear about Jake and Tanner and Mason!! I'll keep my eyes out for Tanner!  Um so yeah we cover four wards but all those ward boundaries only cover two square miles.  So the area is really small and the Mormon population is pretty high.  Like every other person we seem to talk to is LDS which makes it kind of hard to contact new people but its all good.  The only problem with all the members is they only talk to their other LDS neighbors so they don't get to know their other neighbors and then they can't refer them or anything which is kind of a bummer.  

We have this one investigator that a bishop got us that is already ready to be baptized.  His date is Feb 2.  He had a really spiritual experience where he crashed his motorcycle in the woods late at night and was stuck under it for ten hours before anyone found him.  He said he remembers this one part where he was all of a sudden really peaceful and everything was like lit up and he said he had never felt so warm and peaceful ever.  And then the guy that found him was LDS and his name was Moroni.  Moroni gave him a blessing and the doctors said that they didnt think he would ever be able to walk again and now he is walking and doing great! So we just have to teach him the lessons and everything then he will be good to go.  Its awesome.  

Well we are at a members home since the library is closed because of MLK.  If I hadn't got to email I would have been really upset. Well I guess just let me know if anything cool or exciting is happening.  

I haven't gotten any mail so tell everyone that I am not happy with them.
