Clinton,Oklahoma- Week 16


This week it's going to start getting colder! Yes! High of 30!! and it might snow, so I can't wait! Last p-day was fun, we went to the city for zone p-day where all the missionaries were playing basketball and mafia all day, then we all went to eat at which wich, that place is soo good, then we had our zone training. I think that one is my favorite so far, I took lots of notes on it, so the training ended at around 9:30pm, which is fine for everyone else because they live in the city so they are close, but Clinton, Elk, and Weatherford are about an hour and a half drive away, so we are driving home, and we are in the middle of a huge storm, after the 3rd time our truck hydroplaned on the road we slowed down a lot, so it was an even longer drive home. The storm was still crazy once we got to Clinton, so the Elder's from Elk City stayed at our place for the night because we didn't think it would be safe for them to drive another 30 min to Elk in the storm and it was 11:30 at night. On another note, it's really funny, I am like the missionary tutor now. I sometimes help this kid in Young Men's with his homework when we go over to see the family, and a few days ago one of the members called us and asked if either one of us were good at math, I am! so I helped him study for some tests he had for his job, and he has the craziest job ever! He is the person who fixes the electrical wire on the really tall poles. He goes in a helicopter to get up there, then he climbs out and hangs onto the poles, it's really cool and insane. I'm not a fan of heights so I will leave that to him. Had a really good lesson with Emmerson on Wednesday. Sadly, he was really drunk at the time so he couldn't really feel the spirit or understand that much, but the spirit was there and taught him the best I could for about a hour mostly by myself, so that is something I thought was amazing for me that I could do that. Saturday is going to be the craziest day in the world for us! 2 baptisms (hopefully 3) and a wedding for our investigators Carlos and Amy all on the same day! Jolley and I are still trying to figure everything out, like I said its going to be a crazy day, but a amazing one as well. We got two new investigators with week, and it's really funny story, sort of- since the day after Halloween everyone in Clinton has been telling us about this guy who was stabbed 12 times on Halloween. Well, 2 days ago we were knocking on doors and we actually met the guy, he was interested in the message so we were able to talk to him for a while and teach him about the restoration. We gave him a Book of Mormon and he said that he would read it. We went back the next day to have another lesson, but he wasn't home so we left a card on his door with our number on it- and he actually called us back saying sorry he wasn't home and that that never happens. Elder Jolley said that is the first time ever for him that someone has actually called us back when we leave a note, members don't even do that, that is soo cool. So the rest of the week was baptismal interviews and setting stuff up. Love you guys have a great week!!!

I am ready for winter!!!

I got a spear head, it's pretty cool. I love getting stuff :) It can go in my "stuff" box (no I don't have one yet, just thought of that right now)

The moon that night was really bright!
