So the year is already quickly ticking away. Time just does not seem like it wants to slow down. Now especially that I'm in an area i already know and am familiar with, things are just speeding along. I'M not sure that i like time to go this fast.
Well to let all of you know if you don't know, I have been transferred again to one of my favorite areas. Clifton Arizona. Up in the middle of nowhere. Gotta love it. I have really missed this place and I'm very thankful that I get to finish my mission strong around people I already know and love.
So this week has been both eventful and fun. It is overall just a great time to be a missionary. One amazing miracle we have had was we were about to go see a member of the ward but we decided we needed to see at least one less active or potential investigators. Well I remembered one family we were working with when i was here long ago and Elder Bischoff said they lived in the pit. (a slang word used widely for a location in Morenci). But I was pretty sure they lived somewhere else. So i went with my gut and went to the house i remembered them living at. Well we walked up there and knocked on the door. A younger gentleman answered the door and it definitely wasn't who i thought it was going to be. Turns out they moved to the pit. BUT, i contacted him like i have been trained to do for the past 22 months and he is a really cool guy. He is a Steelers fan unfortunately but a great guy. He wanted us to come back on Wednesday so we can teach him more about how he can improve his life. I believe the Lord truly led us to this individual through my gut feeling that was wrong, but it was meant to be wrong. He has only been living there for a week. What a great example of how the Lord works through all of us individually.
A funny event that happened this week was the 1 investigator we had showed up to church...fell asleep for the whole thing. It was pretty humorous. I laughed anyways. That's Clifton for you, there is no other place quite like it and I love it.
