Pretty quick this week with emailing on Tuesday. The rest of the week went really fast.
We had dinner with a member one night this week that works with a major company who supplies big companies for the sugar industry. I was like what- we got talking and I asked if he knew Amalgamated Sugar. He was yea- he had called them a while back and sees them at different conferences and meetings and such. I was like that is so weird. He works in a neighboring city and travels all other the world visiting different places. He was telling me about farming in Brazil. It was pretty cool to talk to someone once again that knows about farming. He was super cool.
Another exchange this week. It was good, with the only Elder that I didn’t know that well in the district. So now I know them all! Love being able to serve others. Since being out so long I have realized how much experience I really have in the mission field. I take a lot of knowledge and understanding for granted. Just think that everyone has it when in fact, not everyone is at the same level of understanding.
One of other investigators has moved back their baptism date. Wanting to make sure they are really ready for the commitment. Still making progress and learning more all the time. Another is still committed to a baptism in the middle of May- loving church and life at this point! For service we are able to do a little gardening at least once a week.
I had my first ice cream from an ice cream truck the other day- the first in my whole life!
One day we were out stopping a lot of people and my companion said it didn’t feel right to him. He didn’t think we were in the right area at that time. We went a little more and he said he wanted to call the Bishop and have him say a prayer with us. That sounded like a good plan, so we did. The Bishop gave us the names of a few people to stop by. The first one was asleep. The second one was gone. The third one was a partly active family. They let us in and for the first time in a long time the father sat in for the lesson. And then we stopped by a lady who said she knew a lot about all other churches, but not much about ours and she was wanting to know more about it. This excited my companion and me a lot. We were able to see some miracles along the way. So great to be working with him!
Other than that not a lot going on, just work, work, work and loving it! I love being a servant of our Heavenly Father!
Thanks for everything!
Love, Elder Stevenson
