A Pretty Chill Week in Riverton

November 2, 2015

It's been a pretty chill week. It seems like this week was filled with more anti-LDS people than usual. We met so many people that were 100% convinced that the church was wrong. We were told that we should not have to ask God to know the truth of anything, and were even told by a born again Christian that because of what we teach, we are going to burn forever in a lake of fire and brimstone... Scary stuff. When we get into situations like that I find pretty much the only thing we can do is smile and leave them with our testimony and hope they feel something.

It started to cool down this week. It rained all day Wednesday and Thursday, and despite his claims to be "protected" on a bike, elder Hamilton still managed to crash pretty good. Made me miss biking where
crashing is a regular occurrence... But I don't think he had the same thoughts, Ha. He's a great guy though and we get along pretty well which I am glad about.

Overall though, this week was very productive. We met a lot of people and met a bunch of potentials in the stake. Work is really picking up here. We have people that will be baptized this month and I am stoked to get them there.

Idk how much of conf you got to watch but you should re-read or re-watch the talk It’s Never Too Early and It’s Never Too Late By Elder Bradley D. Foster Of the Seventy. I love the story about Pablo. Makes me think about the tree analogy... When's the best time to plant a shade tree? 20 years ago. When's the second best time? Now. 

Hope all is going well back home, I definitely miss beautiful AZ Fall.
