Rattlesnakes, Bread, and BAPTISMS!


 A girl does what she must to stay cool.
Howdy, Partners!

Gotta cool/scary story about the elders. Last Monday, they all decided to go on a hike up in the mountains. On their hike, they came to a point where they had to jump from one rock to another with a 3-foot gap, only a couple feet off the ground. After each one made it safely across, an elder heard and noticed something within the gap of the two rocks. He leaned in a little closer. A rattlesnake! If any of them had slipped and fell, there would've been some bad news. Luckily, they were all okay.

Every Tuesday, after District Meeting, we get to go to Aspen Mills, a sandwich shop, for free! The owner, M---, is LDS, and this is his way of serving the missionaries. He's seriously the nicest guy I've ever met in my life. He lets us get whatever we want, and serves a sample of brownies to everyone who walks through the door. It's also great because Sister W--- can't have gluten, but there's gluten-free bread! Hooray! A couple weeks ago, he gave us three whole loaves! He greets everyone with the biggest smile, and talks to you like he's known you his whole life. We need more people like M---.

A couple weeks ago, when we were in Aspen Mills, this guy walks over to the elder's table and asks, 
"Hey, are you Jehovah's Witness's?" 
"Umm...no, we're LDS."
"Oh, you shouldn't go to that church! Do you know what kind of stuff they teach there?"
The elders had no idea what to say, and looked at each other, hoping one of them would have a good response.
"Hahaha! I'm just teasing, I'm a member."

Without us knowing what just happened, the same guy came to our table and started asking us if we had a little money to spare. Oh boy...PLEASE not again.
"Hahaha! Just kidding, I'm a member."
The elders watched the whole scene and we were all laughing afterwards. :)

She's a Wonder...
Our investigator, P---, is getting baptized this weekend! Woohoo! :) She's the girlfriend of a member. She'll become a member, and he'll be getting the priesthood soon. Exciting times! Oh yeah, and J---, C---, and I will be singing "I'm Trying to be Like Jesus" while M--- plays the guitar. I can't remember if I said anything about singing at J---'s baptism. Well if I didn't, Sister P--- and I sang "If the Savior Stood Beside Me" while Sister R--- played the piano. I don't know how people rope me into these things.

Until next time, that's all folks! Y'all come back now, ya hear?
