"Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God."

E-mail #43 of 2011 10/24/2011 Week 79

It was my first time trying it.

Carta # 43 October 24, 2011

Hola familia!

As the transfer gets closer to the end it feels like it's becoming more and more bitter sweet. We are still working to make this the best transition possible for the Birmingham Elders and their mission. President I. said it's as if we're being whitewashed only this time it's REALLY WHITE haha.

We had an exchange with the South Pittsburg Elders this past district meeting. I brought Elder S. here to Fort Payne. He's from Sandy, UT. He's a good Elder. We had a very successful day with several teaching visits. We saw the B. family while we were together. He said he thinks they have a lot of potential. We had a good time.

Our main highlight this week was definitely M. For temporal highlights he fed us! Haha. It was good too. He made catfish and it was actually good. It was my first time trying it. He also made Collard Greens with bacon. That was really good as well! Ok, now the spiritual highlights So, we saw him early on in the week. We were talking about the Book of Mormon and we began introducing the Doctrine of Christ. He asked us where he could find it in the Book of Mormon. We assigned him to read 2 Nephi 31. In our next visit he said he didn't read that specific chapter because he was trying to read all the way to it from where he was at (around 1 Nephi 5 or so). He thought the assignment was in first Nephi I think. He ended up reading quite a bit, just not the assigned chapter. So, we assigned it to him again. Then, we got him to church yesterday! You know how this area is really big? Well, it's about ten miles for us to drive to church from our apartment. We are trying to save a few miles where we can to stay within the limits. So, we asked him for a ride to church... It worked! We soft committed him at church and he accepted it. He's going to read 2 Nephi 31 and we are going to commit him to be baptized on Nov 1.

Those are the main highlights for the week. I need to go now. Love y'all!!!
