I admire the faith and dedication of the pioneers and the early saints

As for this end of things, the work is going well. the Sheriff and I are getting along fairly well.  Brandon M. got very worked up about some kid hot-wiring his car, taking it for a joyride and then sneaking it back into our parking space. All the evidence considered, I don't think it was really stolen in the first place. Even if it was, why would they have brought it back?
We found a man who's ready for the gospel this week. His name is Tony E. (pray for him, he's in a lot of pain from an accident at work) and he wants to change his life around. Perfect baptismal candidate. We're seeing him tonight.
We watched Legacy with one of our recent converts. I still admire the faith and dedication of the pioneers and the early saints.
Other than that, things are pretty smooth. Onward!

Healing ecclesiaphobia

The last couple of weeks have been wearing on me, but for some reason I'm in a strangely good mood right now. The Sheriff and I are getting on fine. We do have some disagreements, but that said, who doesn't?

Transfer calls came and went, and I'll be staying in Mount Airy with the Sheriff. Good thing, too, Mt. Airy is one of the coolest parts of the mission, and if it's already breaking 90 on an average day, I'll be quite happy staying here. We've had a lot of rain lately and it's nice to see the sun this morning.

We lost some of our investigators to ecclesiaphobia (not-coming-to-church-itis) but we're going to go heal them of their infirmities this week. We're also going to be doing a lot of service and we already have several appointments planned. So good week coming up.
I learned how to stain glass this week, too. Apparently egg dye works just fine, but you have to dry it on Saran wrap or it loses its color. It's also not permanent. But still cool.

How many Jedi does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Obi-Wan! :D
