|Conference with Elder Zwick!|
November 16, 2015
Hey mates! What's going on? This week has been rather busy. We had a zone meeting and Elder Zwick came to see us! That was fantastic. He talked about purifying ourselves from the world and doing things that bring us closer to God and invite the spirit. It was cool. I shook his hand and now I never will wash it.. His wife that came with him was amazing! She talked about her son Scotty that was disabled and couldn't serve a mission because of his disability. The Zwick had to go to Thailand for some business Their son was serving there and he almost finished his mission and they asked if they could pick him up from it. The mission president was like, sure! But I want to meet Scotty.
I have heard so much about him and he sounds amazing! When the missing president met him he learned of Scotty's intense desire to serve a mission even though he couldn't...the mission president set apart Scotty as a full time missionary and made him companions with his brother for a few weeks until he was done. The whole time they were there they prayed for some special person to teach. They were in the bus on day and heard people speaking English! The brother said this one is yours Scotty! Go get them! He went over to the young couple and and sat next to them. He said to them, "I have been praying for you! Take this book, it will make you really happy." They took it! Once they got home a few months went by...Hey got a phone call one day and it was the people who Scotty gave the book of Mormon to. They called and said that when they heard when someone was praying for them they where touched...and they called to tell Scotty that they were baptized a few months ago... Isn't that amazing! I love that story. We also had stake conference his week. That was pretty funny. We tried to broadcast it from Cookeville to Livingston with our redneckaneering skills. It worked actually! It was cool seeing conference in another place besides home. It makes you grateful for what you have I guess.Half way through the broadcast when he stake president was talking it picked up some radio station and all you hear is some lady talking about Miley Cyrus with her new album or something bizarre like that. It was awesome though. The talks that were given were inspired I'm sure. I loved it all in all. My favorite was when sister Andersen got up and talked about how there are no coincidences. He sisters called her and asked if she would come out with them. She was happy to go but she was late because of car repairs. She called them back and said hey I'm going to be late. The sisters laughed and said, oh we thought we called the other sister Andersen in our ward... Sister Andersen was like, we'll I can go back if you don't need me, but they invited her anyway. They had AMAZING lessons! She was able to testify to them about the gospel. She new she was the sister Andersen that needed to be there. Later on hey had a mission conference later to go to and they went on a flight. They sat next to this lady and and talked. She said she was going back to Tennessee because she lived there. She said she new who they where and said, actually I met a mission president earlier, except he was the Knoxville president. No coincidences! None, zero Nada. When it had come to teaching we have been steadily and slowly doing better. It is a test of patience I am sure but I know that if we do our best then God will see our efforts and do his part also. We did get to do service and build a wheelchair ramp for this one man because we keep trying to offer service. That was fun! We got to drive a tractor. That's a first for me. We spent the whole time though chipping mortar of cinder blocks. I felt like I was making the salt lake temple or something. It was cool! Service works. I know his email is short but my love for you all isn't. I love each and every one of you and you bless me. Thanks! Keep doin your best and if you need anything,no am an email away. Love ya! Elder Weight~
