Companion: Elder Jelte
Good luck with the events back home and congratulations to Zach, already ready to head back out!
Our Bike Week was fine and dandy! I shall account a couple things that happened.
A woman drove up to us, shouting that she used to visit with missionaries and would like us to come over. She shouted the whole time. She seemed happy, not upset, just that her default communication was high volume.
Another man drove up to us and was on a 'mission to Mormons'. It was a fine conversation. He explained that he had looked into the church before (Though I get the feeling he was dealing with some kind of split off group due to what he says he was told, but it is possible he misunderstood). We had a fine conversation and parted ways. Although technically it was a confrontation, it was not hostile or heated.
It is sad he was not able to reach the same conclusion as us when he had tried before, but he gave the appearance that he had actually tried before and his intentions were good! All he wanted was to make sure we were right with God and had come to our religious conclusions ourselves and when we told him we had, he accepted our answer. He may not end up baptized soon, he may never, but he tried.
People who have earnestly prayed to know the Book of Mormon is true, read it and studied have a name. 'Recent Converts'.
We had a barbecue with a family outside. Most of them were drunk it seemed. That was interesting. Smart children though, good to talk to.
Blytheville Ward. The potluck is every third Sunday and the turnout is, eh, twenty to thirty I think?
We get the vehicle back, woohoo! The heat is setting in. Funny how all the locals complain about it, almost as if they didn't see it coming, and don't realized it is going to get much. Much worse.
