This week was great! And the subject of this email is describing some of the pictures I took this week! Feel free to go look at them right now! And then you can come read the rest of this email! Anyway, I met my new companion this week! His name is Elder Fuller and he's from Gilbert,
Arizona! He's 26 and has a fair amount of experience talking with people, so that's been good! He's doing really well and is learning quickly!
Some of our Wednesday meetings were cancelled due to weather, so that might explain how cold it has been. But that's okay, because my coat has been keeping me warm! On Thursday, the Lillywhite's (A Senior Couple) drove us to Portsmouth to pick up my new companion! We had a couple really good meetings there, got a Subway lunch, got a picture together and then headed back to Washington!
We witnessed a small miracle on Friday morning. We were trying to start our car to go to District Meeting, but it wouldn't start. We tried several times to no avail. It was exceedingly cold that morning, and that may have been the cause. So we went inside and called the Lillywhite's who kindly accepted to come pick us up. And then I had the feeling that we might try it one more time. Elder Fuller suggested that we pray, and so we did. The engine started on the first try. We were both grateful for that little miracle as we drove to the meeting.
We've also been teaching some new investigators recently and it has been going well. I always enjoy testifying of Christ and how every principle and doctrine should and does bring us closer to Him. Especially The Book of Mormon. As we live by the precepts in that book, we will come "nearer to God...than by any other book". I know Book of Mormon is true and I know that it is the Word of God. I would invite each of you to make daily study of The Book of Mormon a habit in your lives. I know it will bless you tremendously. Jesus is the Christ and God lives. Have a wonderful week!
P.S. I have officially hit my six-month mark! Crazy!
