Missionary

Most of the people that check my blog know that I have a missionary serving the Lord in a far off state.
He is doing great and loves the people.
This is a bit about his week and what he is doing.

We had a way cool experience this last week! We went on splits with the zone leaders so we could pick up a referral they had for us, and so that we could cover another appointment at the same time, I went and had a great lesson with this guy who had his sister get baptized a little while ago, and promised her that he would talk to the first missionaries that he saw, and so he was excited to see us, in the past 2 days had already started reading the Book Of Mormon and liked it (although he said that he had a little bit a of a problem understanding the language of the scriptures). We have another appointment tonight and will probably get him out to church this week.
While we were doing this the other 2 went to another referral that we had and the guy pulled them in and said that he had been waiting for us to show up. He had gone down to the Draper Temple open house and had really felt the spirit, he said he felt like he had been waisting the first 25 years of his life without the gospel and wanted to get baptized, he had grown up catholic but had never felt right about it and had always wondered why we would go through life married to someone but then have it be only "to death do you part". They tried to set a baptism for April 11th but he asked if he could do it before then, and so he has a baptism date for the
21st of March!
In December he wrote home about the food he was getting.
This is one day of that week.
On Saturday we were fed a big lunch and went to talk to some people in the ward they gave us hot chocolate (it was almost a blizzard out side)We then went and talked to someone else they gave us more hot chocolate and some snacks. then we went and helped someone shovel their driveway and guess what!?! they gave us hot chocolate! We went to dinner and ate a big dinner with...hot chocolate, then off to help someone move stuff around in their house and they gave us another dinner and....MORE hot chocolate! ha ha.
