Seriously! We're has everybody gone! This week has been super rough on us. What I mean by that is very time we tried to go to somebody's house, no. Body. Was. Home.... We went all over the world it seems and not one person answered the door. Sister Cooper passed away this week. We went to her viewing. It was a strange moment. To see her there but not alive. It was like she was here but not at the same time. I was telling Mickey and Elder Richins it felt like she was sitting on top of the lid of her casket and was smiling and waving to everyone who came to see her. We were not able to attend her actual funeral because we had zone meeting the next day which went very well. We did have A CRAZY MIRACULOUS EVEN TAKE PLACE!!!! We went up to Byrdstown and had a fair referral for a Kaycee Trice. We went to the door and the most gangster looking African American guy came out. We said we had a fair referral with his name on it. But he said he never went to any fair... He invited us in and he told us how he used to be in a gang and what not. He used to be a hard core bible thumper and how he had a thirst for knowledge. He read the Koran and the Book of Mormon and all sorts of books. We began talking about were the Book came from and explained Joseph Smith. When we told him about Joseph there were tears in his eyes. We asked him how he felt and he said it felt good! We were like "what do you mean?" He said take a look at this, I am feeling uncomfortable about my church. There are things I don't agree with. I am tryin to fix my life around and get back into church stuff again. Then you guys come. You knock on my door. Not across the street, not my neighbors, mine! You had a referral thing but I never filled one out, you called me by name and wanted to share this good message with me. There is a greater work going on here and I think that is a sign." I thought I was going to faint after that. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!! HOW OFTEN DOES THAT HAPPEN!!! NEVER!! NEVER I SAY!!!! that just goes to show that God is good. When it seems unlikely that is usually when something good is coming. We didn't teach many lessons but the ones we did were priceless. I have learned one solid thing this week. God is good and he will provide a way. We also got to go to a baptist church this week. I was a little upset because there was nobody shouting hallelujahs but it was still pretty interesting. Everyone was super nice. Even the pastor. Again, if our church was that friendly everyone would flock to it. It is nice already, but I'm talking even more nice. Crazy friendly. Good times... Anyway, it is time to go, converse with you all next week. Elder Weight~ Sent from my iPad
