I'm 19! And I like to eat!

Hello Everyone!

   I know the subject is kinda random, but let me explain! First of all, my birthday was wonderful! I received many gifts and letters and I had an amazing day! I'm 19 now, and if it weren't for the mission age change, I would've just barely started my mission!
    A few weeks ago, we ate at a place called Hwy 55 and I noticed that they had something called the Andy's challenge...55 ounces of meat with fries and a drink! What?!? I know! So I decided that I would give it a shot on the P-Day before my birthday! I was allowed 30 minutes to eat it all. And if I didn't do it in time or couldn't finish it, I would have to pay $25! But if I did eat it in the time limit, then I wouldn't have to pay a dime! Let's just say that I ate lunch for free last Monday! (Also, there's pictures at the bottom!)
   The work has been going well! We've got a few progressing investigators, and this week, we were able to teach a new investigator in one of the members homes. That went really well and he is interested in the Church. I was also able to go on exchanges with one of the Spanish Elders, Elder Valdez! That was fun! I even did one of the door approaches in Spanish! Haha he may have helped me out a little!
    While I was with Elder Valdez, I thought about how this gospel is for everyone. God loves each and every one of His children, and so He provided his gospel to all. I know that He wants all of us to follow Him and that by so doing, we can be truly happy. I know that He loves us and that He wants what's best for us. I hope that we can all come unto Him. Have a wonderful week, everyone!!

With Love,

Elder Rogers
