"Well another good week here in Morgan City. I wasn't here for half of it because I went on an exchange with one of the Zone Leaders and since I don't know the area too well I went up to Lafayette for two days. It was fun and Elder Killpack, one of our Zone Leaders, is awesome. Next transfer is his last, so it was a great chance to learn from an Elder that has served for so long. But while we were there, we went to Stevens Fried chicken! Oh...my...lanta! Probably the best fried chicken in Louisiana! And fancy this, it was run by Asian people... Sounds familiar, right Wayne?? haha But this week was defiantly a long one. It felt like one of the longest weeks of my mission. I'm not sure why, we were pretty busy for the most part.
But yesterday was awesome because 3 investigators came to church! That is just unheard of in Morgan city! It was "another festivus miracle!" After church we had a "linger longer" (pot luck) and no, there was no feats of strength. Sorry to disappoint you. But one of the talks during sacrament this lady from the stake came and talked. She told us that when we do temple work, other than their parents and the Savior, we are the most important person in their lives. For some reason that really struck me hearing that this time. I'ts so true, sometimes we take doing temple work as a personal thing to help make us feel good. But, we are actually doing one of the greatest acts of charity. Allowing people to partake in ordinances that they in no other way could. Wow, what a blessing!
Back home sounds like things are going great! One of the members has a dog that reminds me of Jeter. I miss that big guy! I printed out the picture of him and taped him to my wall :) But I miss and love y'all so much! Please remember that its never too late. Remember the parable of the 99 and 1 lost sheep! Be safe, have fun, and enjoy life my friends!"
