|You will believe an Elder can fly!|
This are good here in the land of dirt roads that don't exist in your GPS lol! Really, it has been good here, just trying to learn our area has been tricky, since it is ALL country; there are nearly no neighborhoods to be found! Mainly, we have been trying to locate members and less-actives, and hunt down former investigators, which will be tricky, since they haven't had any missionaires in this area for a few months. My new companion is a cool guy; he loves basketball and BYU, so we get along pretty well lol.
The members here are pretty cool; they have given us a few referrals, so we'll see how those go.
There is this one member who is locally known as "The Great One" (self-proclaimed title, of course). He is a retired pilot and schoolteacher, and has some fantastic stories about his flying days! He pretends to be all swagger and arrogant, but he really is a good guy, and humble deep down. He dotes on his new wife, and is a fantastic teacher of the gospel! He and his wife have been having some health problems, so we have been over there, helping them out however we can. It's an excellent opportunity to learn at the feet of "The Great One" lol!
Anyway, that's all I have for now. That, and I'm running out of time! An hour isn't long enough to think of anything good! Oh well. I hope y'all are well and hope to see y'alls faces around Christmastime!
