We were able to help 2 families move this week. One family was the Judd's. They moved from Payson, Utah. We met them just briefly and showed Sister Judd how to get to the church. She said that was pretty far. It's clear on the other side of town. She's been used to just walking to church down a street in Utah; however, we're not in Utah anymore--or as Dorothy would say, "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." I think to myself sometimes that we all could use a wake up call every now and again that everything isn't always fine and dandy as they seem, and that we can do something about the situation and help others come unto Christ.
The other family we were able to help a little bit were non-members. We were biking up Powers when we saw a bunch of people loading a moving trailer. We asked if we could help, and they were happy that we stopped to help. It was late in the evening after about
8:00 when everyone is going to bed, so we can't really knock on any door without an appointment. By the end of it, we were able to leave a good impression on them and maybe we even planted a seed of faith that they will investigate the church one day wherever they might be moving to.
I hope you were all able to enjoy what I call Book of Mormon Day. On September 21-22nd, Joseph Smith met the Angel Moroni and then discovered and later received the gold plates on these days. Just to let you all know, nothing too interesting happened this week. We talked to Derwin again finally and introduced Brother Hokanson who is the Young Men's president. Maybe then we can get him to the youth activities, and later to church again. We have been riding bikes all day seeing which members still reside in the ward.
Our Prospective Elders list is a lot shorter than what I thought, so that narrows down our search to find those who will receive more of the gospel and receive more of God's Priesthood Authority on the earth. As far as finding new investigators, we will continue to try the Prospective Elders. That's about it folks. Love you all, and be safe in that rain or whatever it be.
