You are not alone

"You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you...He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you, because you are His Him earnestly, and you will find Him" -Pres Uchtdorf

Another "crazy" day in Merritt

Well this week started off pretty normal but on Tuesday Elder Tolman and I went to Merritt on exchanges and that was pretty normal too until we went to visit Dan "the Bearman",  yes, the same Dan "The Bearman" that Elder Walker and I went to visit a few weeks ago and this weeks visit was not any more normal especially since Dan's roommate was there again. So we tried to teach something again but again we got off on aliens but this time we got to see all of his pictures of UFO's and he showed us his claws and he has 2 full necklaces of them one from every bear he has killed, which is 70, but that wasn't the craziest thing because randomly his roommate ran out of his room yelling how beef is up a dollar a pound and that they need to stock up on McDonald hamburgers because they were going to be expensive and then later he came out and told us how oil prices are up and how he needed to go out and buy a 45 gallon drum and get some gas. Then, yes it is not over yet, he came out screaming that he is a drug dealer and how all these people want his drugs but he has already sold them all. His roommate Steve is really CRAZY! Then that wasn't the end of meeting the weird people in Merritt because then we went to a guy named Rick and he was crazy too. He was telling us about how technology brain washes people and it was his mission to get rid of technology and stop the brainwashing it is doing to people. He told us that was his divine mission. So what I have gathered from the 3 times I have been to Merritt is that  there are a lot of crazy people there. but they do have some really cool investigators and they are not all crazy.

Driving to Merritt
  Then at district meeting Elder Persson, Elder Tolman and I had to give a training which we completely forgot about until Tuesday night so that's all we did Tuesday night and for studies in the morning but surprisingly it went really well thanks to the spirit because if I have learned one thing on my mission it is that if I didn't have the spirit I would be a pretty bad teacher but luckily everything we teach is true and we do have the Holy Ghost to testify to people.
  I think i have talked about this a lot but Kamloops 2nd ward is so awesome.  They take care of us so good. I mean we always have dinners and people give us food and members are always willing to do lessons with us.
 Oh and this Friday we are getting a Mini Missionary, which is a preist from somewhere in the stake and they are going to spend a weekend with us so that is going to be pretty sweet and really fun. Hopefully we can make this an uplifting experience but it should be good because we spent like an hour planning for those 2 days. We also got a senoir missionary couple who are from St George, The Mortensons and they are really cool and they know where Mesquite is and they have been there so finally someone actually knows where I live and I didnt have to say an hour outside of Las Vegas so that was cool. 
We also did a ton of tracting this week because we need people to teach but besides that this week has been pretty normal. Just to let you know transfers are next week so I might get transferred. So dont send anything to me for a week.
