Soo..... really the only reason for that subject line is because there was a reaaal good thunder storm last night! It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I love the crap out of those storms. Elder Dickson however, reeeaaallly doesn't. So that was kinda funny for me :)
So this past week was pretty good, my exchange with Elder Eyre was alright, we didn't have a whole lot of time to work because we weren't able to start working until like 4 ish and our exchange ended right after studies the following morning. But it's all good, we had a fun time!
So I guess we'll start with the sad news. While Elder Eyre and I were on exchanges we had a teaching appointment with Richard, he's on date for the 24th of this month. Our member got to talking about some deeeeeep doctrine and stuff, that really wasn't necessary or anything. And now Richard has to think about what we've taught him. He hasn't gotten back to us since then....
But it's all good! We'll find another one!!
So this past week we spent a lot of time going out and trying to visit all of the Less Actives who are in the ward, we saw a good portion of them, and most of them were real nice to us! So that was good, we taught a lot and hopefully strengthened their faith and helped them have a desire to come back to church.
we actually spent pretty much all day going out to the far edges of our boundaries, trying to visit the people who never see anybody. It went fairly well! We were in the car a lot, but we saw some people and I think we did some good.
Overall it was a very standard week for us, so this week is going to be much better!
One experience that I would like to share is with Brother Gubler. We have met with him twice now, super less active member from SLC, and he has never had a real testimony of the church. He's also getting married to a woman he met here in Kansas! Super nice people, really cool. But we shared a message about praying with faith, and invited/committed them both to read and truly pray about the Book of Mormon, and they accepted the challenge! It was a very spiritual experience, and we're going to follow up this week.
That about catches you up though! Love you all! Talk to you soon!
