January 13, 2010

I am loving harrisonburg! We should be setting another man here soon for baptism! And junior and diane are gonna get baptised soon! I also attached a picture of junior. He's the bigger one who is kinda bald.

But yeah overall we are doing great here. I love it!
I did get my bike back! The beginning of this transfer. We don't ride it but yeah. I'm pretty sure the assistants loaned out my bike while they had it, cause I got it back all dirty and whatnot. But the pieces are all there. and it's still in good condition, just dirty.

I think the reason elder terry was so controlling in the lessons, was because he was here for so long, that he felt like he knew everything about these people and he thought he was the only one who could do it right. I guess? I don't know. Elder Lowry is the man though. He helps me alot and we have lots of fun doing the work!
So we have these members in our ward. Who at first when elder terry was here wouldnt meet with us. Were pretty sure he offended them somehow earlier on. They are active in the church, but just didn't like missionaries. So we called them after transfers and we set up a time and they let us come over! So we are teaching them and we are having a great spiritual lesson, and their son is there. Now their son isn't very strong in the church and isn't very excited about it. He's like 16-17. But as we were finishing up I see him pull out two cd cases that he got for christmas. And I recognize the backs of them and I ask him "are those death cab for cutie cds?" And he's like "yeah!" So instant bond made. And we started talking about it all and he just gets really excited. So later on that week on sunday we are driving around and we get a call from his mom. And she invites us over to dinner and tells us that they are actually starting to see some progression from him! And he actually was the one who wanted us over. he's really starting to come along. And his mom couldn't be happier. I think like elder larson and the hawaiian elder (haha can't remember his name) were some of the motiavtors for me to be stronger in the church, I think we are sort of starting to be that motivator for him. I hope we can continue to help him!

But yeah, that's all I've got today! I love you all and I'm so thankful for the things you do for me and the prayers you are doing and for the love you've shown me!

Oh! One last thing. I found a blackberry on the side of the road yesterday. It was all smashed up. We think someone set it on the top of their car and drove away and it fell down and got crushed by a car. But I picked it up and took it because it was of 0 value. But I messed around with it for a while (it obviously doesn't turn on :P) and popped the back off and found an 8 giga-bit sd card! nothing on it, just empty folders! woo.

anyways. wanted to tell you that.

love you all! I hope your week is great! love you and stay safe!
