Chapter 62: The Bus

October 3, 2016

How's it all going everybody? Wasn't conference sweet? I think out of all the times I've ever watched it this time has helped me the most. It seems like all my questions I've had have been answered which is amazing. If you haven't seen it, watch it! If you have, do it again! No words I can say can describe it's pure amazingness. 

So this week we have been trying to figure out life without the car. It's been pretty crazy. We finally were able to get some bus passes. So we tried to figure out where all the stops are at. As we were eating lunch one day we realised we were gonna miss the bus. We ran a long way in the rain to try to get to the stop and when we get there it left. So we freaked out for a little bit but then this guy in a van came and offered us a ride. We got in and he was funny because he knew missionaries a long time ago but didn't like the church. We get to the transit center and we got told a sermon by this guy who was dressed really uniquely. Then this guy who wasn't "all the way there" went over and was sweet talking this girl and Elder Carlson had the idea to go save her. So we distracted the guy as she made the getaway. She whispered thanks and booked it. We caught the next bus and headed up to our appointment. We have been very blessed to find rides when we needed them. God looks out for His missionaries. This conference weekend I've learned a lot. I think one of the things I've been reminded the most of has been gratitude for the little things. Recently I've been really grateful that I'm a missionary. Especially on the days that it seems like nothing goes right...I'm just glad I'm here. Remember gratitude in the hard times y'all. 
Well, I want to let ya know I know Jesus loves ya and there's nothin you can do about it. Sorry. It's the truth. He is always there even if you don't feel like it. He's been there for me and I'm grateful for those times. 
Sure love ya,
Elder Weight
