Paczki season

It's Paczki (pronounced poonski) season.  I don't know much about it but it makes me happy.  It is a dessert that they make only one season throughout the year.  I haven't had one yet but I look forward to.  Maybe I'll try one today.  So excited!!!

Well I just want to share that this week I hear a gun shot go off up the street and I was not scared at all.  I just kept going about my business.  I was so proud of myself.  Gunshots don't even bother me anymore.

So not much happened this week.  Transfers happened. I got a new companion named Elder Hale.  He is from some place other than the desert.  Mapleton UT

We met a guy named Gary.  We went out in the middle of nowhere.  I actually felt like I was going to a cabin.  We knocked on a door and Gary answered and we were able to give him a Book of Mormon.  He is a busy guy and he said that we could come back.  He actually genuinely seemed interested.  So exciting.

Also we have a member set up a lesson for us to teach an investigator.  His name is Denny.  He has been given the gift to know when people are going to die.  He just knows and it freaks him out.  He has predicted deaths to occur and they do occur.  It has bothered him so we tried giving him comfort to the best of our knowledge.

So one of my favourite talks from this last conference was Hugo Montoya's.  First his accent is on point. Second it just is such a great talk to help others around you.  First—go the second mile.
 Second—please smile. Your smile will help others. Third—express compassion. Fourth—invite others to come to church.  This just made me happy.  It talks about how just a smile can make someone's day 1000x better.  It can give them comfort.  Also I liked how it told people to do missionary work.  I know that as we help other people with their heavy burdens then they can see the light that the gospel can bring.

Well I am continuing to keep my eye single to the glory of God.  Especially when I want to quit.  A quote I found in my scriptures was "When your trials become hard to stand up to; try kneeling!" Such a great way to end.

I love you I love you I love you, muah muah muah (relating to someone in a old folks home)
