We were able to see Mathew a few times this week. He is doing okay. He has the mouth of a sailor, but we are going to work with him on that. We are going to have to work pretty hard on him to get him ready, but he will get there. We were teaching him about the Plan of Salvation and he was just loving it! He loves the idea of the three different Kingdoms of Glory. We also were talking about the importance of living what we know and why we can't just live in sin. It was an interesting lesson, but a good one at that.
We had an awesome miracle this week as well! We received a Media Referral which comes from Salt Lake that some missionaries had ran into a guy that seemed really interested. We went over to meet him, his name is Thomas. As we pulled up to his house he was outside working on his yard. We began talking to him and he was a really nice guy. He asked us if we had a Book of Mormon that he could have to read. We quickly gave him the one in our hand. He was so grateful. It was like we gave him the most precious gift anyone could give. After we set up an appointment to come by on Saturday and left. We went back and taught him the Restoration. It was very spiritual and he just soaked all of it up. After we asked him a question he told us that he has just been looking for truth and that's all he cares about. He could care less what religion it is he is just looking for the truth. We are very excited to continue to work with him.
We were also able to meet with Bino this week. He didn't read what we committed him to so we read with him. We talked about the Book of Mormon and about the importance of church. It was a good lesson and we will be seeing him sometime this week and hopefully we can get him to church.
We also had stake conference this week. They called a new Stake President and a new Counselor. It was awesome. There were two Seventies there and they both were able to speak. One of them was Brother Corbridge. He wrote a famous talk amongst missionaries called The Fourth Missionary. It was a good conference and we all came away uplifted and edified. We didn't have any of our investigators there because none of them wanted to drive from Cleveland to Kingwood to go to church.
I hope yall have a good week and have a good start to the Holidays:)
These are pics of Elder Willden's and Elder Hunter's Halloween pumpkin carving this year:
This was an inside joke. Every time Elder Hunter calls me dude I look over to the side and talk to my imaginary friend John and say, "Did you hear something John? I think I did too."
