YOU AIN'T GONNA BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME YESTERDAY...
After Mom finished choir practice she came home, Eileen is the Choir Leader so she was the last out... On her way home she saw a lady struggling to walk with her crutches because of all the snow we've received these past few days, so she and Reid took this lady home, she lives on the corner of Independence and Miami, on the south east side, in that brown house. They noticed that her sidewalks hadn't been shoveled so she stopped by our place just before dinner and asked me if I could go over there and do it because they were in a hurry to get back to the hospital (Kayla and Matt had their baby).
SO I went over there and get like 1/2 way done then this guy walks out and demands that he gives me money, and I told him it wasn't necessary and that I was doing it just because it felt like the right thing to do. He then asked me my name and I introduced myself, his name is Larry English and he's a Vietnam vet. He then asked me if I was LDS and I said yes, then he said that he wanted to know more about our church.... But here's the thing bro, I was already going to go out with the missionaries later that night... so I got his phone number and told him that I would stop by a little bit later with the missionaries and he said ok. He went back inside, THEN ELDER COMACHO AND ELDER ROUTHIER CAME WALKING DOWN THE STREET.... I couldn't believe it! They were on their way to dinner and so I told them my story and they gave me the English speaking missionary's number so I could contact them. The English speaking missionaries names were Elder Medvecsky and Elder Logan, so we went back over to Larry's house at 7:00 and we had a pretty good talk. He talked a lot about himself and his past, which was kinda a stretch because he talks slow and so much... Haha but anyway we gave him a Book of Mormon to read and he said a prayer and it was so sincere, the spirit was strong let me tell you brother! So we're going back to Larry's house tonight to talk more about the gospel with him.
Great experience for me.
Oh and I've got some exciting news for you... One of my friends from USU got her mission call last week, to Bahia Blanca Argentina! She leaves in February, so if the visa doesn't back her up she'll be down there before you leave. Her name is Alison Vincent, she's pretty cool!
I hope to hear from you! Love you man. THE CHURCH IS TRUE *Bro. Sweat Voice*
