New Hobbies, Old friends, and something else that sounds spiritual :P

Some comedy for your morning or afternoon or evening depending on when and where you get this.

Honestly the last couple of weeks have been feeling rather Rote and not a whole lot has happened regarding the work, I still LOVE the work and.. (looks out window to see its snowing, guess the nice heatwave is gone :/ ) still easily distracted as always.

Back to the week I guess, 

Elder Fifield and I went window shopping cuz neither of us wanted to play Basketball with the Zone so we had a pretty good time checking out some geeky stuff (Yes I can still be a geek as a missionary its not in the the hand book  :P)

Just a sluggish day as was most of the week after district meeting we had a Bible drop off and then did several stop-bys but nobody was home really. that night we took Brother Jones with us to see Aza and it was more just swapping theories of how the Government and the "elite" are going to kill us all than the actual gospel so yaaay

Met with Kyle had a good lesson everyone else Flamed us that night... *sigh* Missionary work isn't easy, not supposed to be but sometimes you just hope people would hold to an appointment that you set up. 

No success Finding anybody really had some REALLY nice members feed us cafe Rio style sweet pork and it was a good taste of home really.

We had planned to go out and find pretty much the whole morning but as we were leaving the apartment A maintenance guy for our complex stopped us and asked us if we really believed we could become Gods. Normally this is the kinda question that proceeds a "bash" but at the same time it is one of my all time FAVORITE parts of the gospel. quick side note :
 Couple of weeks ago we walked into a referral that actually was bringing us to "be taught the lies of Joseph smith and know the Truth" so your usual basher but she said something that stuck out to me she said " My goal is to go up to heaven kneel before God and Jesus Christ (she ascribes to the Nicene creed)  Cast my crown at his feet and cry 'Holy holy holy' for the rest of forever." 
To be honest this sent me reeling, How could anyone believe that all God, a Perfect glorified and Eternal Being, really wants for you is to only praise him forever. It just seems odd to me.. anyway back to Tom

So Tom right asks us this question and I flat out say "Yes that is what God wants for You!" we then taught him why no one else teaches this truth and the Restoration of the Gospel. He left us asking no joke "Why am I hear and where am I going" we are teaching him again Tuesday and I can't wait to in the words of John Bytheway "Take off the Blinders" Keep Tom in your prayers I hope He knows this is where God wants him to be and who he wants him to Become.

Well I love you all. I know I missed Pictures last week (sorry Mom)  but I have them this time around (possibly a short vid if its not too long)

Spring is coming soon!
