Week 53 - July 13, 2015

The District...

Cool Thing: It is transfer week so looks like I’m getting a new companion tomorrow!!

Interesting Character: NICOLAS...Nicolas is the 3 year old son of one of the less actives in this ward and he has a really bad allergy to mayonnaise, but he LOVES mayonnaise! He like eats it plain, and when he is finished, his mouth gets all red and stuff. But I asked myself, "Why do his parents let him eat it?" I found out real soon when they tried taking it away and he threw THE BIGGEST FIT. It was funny. He also likes the skin of roasted chicken. Hahah He’s crazy!

Funny Thing: I made like 3 pizza cookies this week and they were delicious and now everyone wants me to make one for FHE and stuff! Thanks Skylar!


Weekly Triumph: We found a long lost member this week and we invited him to come to church and he CAME. He’s been going to other churches for the past few years and just hasn’t felt anything for a long time. We invited him to church again and he said it felt good to be singing normal hymns and to feel welcome somewhere! That was cool!  I will also be getting a new companion from Bahia. I think it will be a good change for me cause this Elder is really calm. Hahaha It will be a dramatic change. I am still in a district with 6 Brazilians and 1 American (me) so that’s fun!

Weekly Difficulty: Finding people to teach. This week was super slow because of transfers and doctor appointments and Elder dos Anjos saying goodbye to the members, but we did return to a lot of contact’s houses. It turns out that only one family really wants to hear what we have to say.

Saying goodbye to Elder dos Anjos...

Spiritual Experience: This week I had another confirmation that Joseph Smith really was a prophet called of God. When we were giving the first lesson for one of our investigators, I don’t know what our investigator felt, but what I do know is how I felt when giving my testimony. The church is true!

Scripture: Omni 1:26 my new favorite scripture!

Everyone have a great week! Tchau!

Elder Buck
