are having fun teaching others, and also finding others to teach. It's
been getting real hot the last couple of weeks, and the humidity is
crazy high as well, but the work must move forward anyway!
We had some funny experiences this week, we went over to a less active
families house for dinner on Thursday way out in the boonies, the dad
is the less active, he's from Louisiana and sure does sound like it!
He had served a mission in San Antonio back in 89 or so, but hasn't
been active since then. He'd always loved rodeo, and after his mission
he got caught up in it a lot. Anyway, he made us crawfish fettucini,
which was actually really good, but the funny part happened when his
15 year old son came out of his room holding something in his hands.
He had a big grin on his face and said, "guys, you'll never guess what
just crawled out of my dirty clothes pile!" Me and Elder Niemann just
kinda stared at him like, what? Then he opened up his hands and said,
"a toad!" And a little toad hopped right out of his hands onto the
kitchen floor! His family hardly even reacted to it like it was a
normal occurrence, but me and Elder Niemann couldn't stop laughing!
His uncle replied in a thick Cajun accent "now howed you get one of
them frogs in your dirty clothes?!" And the kid was all like, "it
ain't a frog, it's a toad!" Finally the mom had had enough and said,
"I don't care what it is, just get it outta my kitchen!" The mom's
from Alabama, by the way. But I swear, it was like we see on an
episode of Duck Dynasty or something!
The rest of this week has been good, we've been trying to get people
to progress towards baptism, we're having FHE with the nine year olds
family tonight, she should get baptized soon! The other investigator
is still doing good, he's just kinda going
through the motions right now. We are trying to find a way to help
him feel the Spirit more in his life right now. But I know that once
he does, he will be so happy! I know it because it's happened in my
I sure do love y'all, I hope all is well for anyone reading this. Keep
Christ in your life, and you will never lack for joy!
