Chapter 32 Legendary
What's up people of all ages, genders and races. This is your favorite missionary serving in these here southern states. I hope y'all have had an outstanding week.
The Zone leaders have really wanted us to lead by example and make our area an example to the other missionaries. We really have been pushing this area to its limits, or at least trying our best to make this area thrive. In planning for every hour of the day and effectively coordinating investigators and less actives, we were able to make a grand total of 34 lessons this week. A record in Altamont missionary history. God is moving in these backwoods. The people are as well. Slowly but surely. We are still trying really hard to get Megan and Glen baptized. It's good for both of them because if they ever have any questions their spouses are both members so they can explain things to them. We just need to get over there! Their work schedule is hard to teach around. We finally were able to get Glen a large print book of Mormon. What's good for him is he works at the dump and literally sits all day in his office making sure everything goes right. So now he reads the book of Mormon all day. Booyah! It's harder to teach Megan because Dayton her husband is the one who works and we can't get in to teach her usually unless he is there. But God is wise. He makes things happen. That is for sure.
A really neat thing that happened to us this week which is actually pretty rare for here. We were getting supper at this one place and it was an hour wait. We left to go teach a lesson and came back and it was paid for. The cashier was a member and she told us that this couple came up to her and asked if we were missionaries. She said yes and they asked if they could pay our bill. They paid it all. I was super amazed. Usually people don't like us. Blessings in heaven for those people. I will make sure they get them. On a side note we were at a lesson and they left the TV on. I glanced over and saw a KFC commercial with Jim Gaffagin as Colonial Sanders. 🤔
I have a talk that I found that truly has changed my outlook on everything. It is by Brad Wilcox called his grace is Sufficient. It is better if you watch it. I can't really explain what it is but it is something everyone needs to see. Please read or watch if you get the chance.
I love you all and hope you are living life to its limits.
