Letter Home from Elder North

Date:  April 27, 2015
Area:  North Little Rock, Arkansas
Companion:  Elder Reed

Dear Salamancas,

We had a pretty interesting week, here are some highlights-

We had dinner with a lovely Hawaiian woman, Sister Kircowski, who runs the Primary. Living with her is Sister Jackson, a four foot two German woman about eighty years old. She told us about how when she was a little girl she was baptized, but her parents told her nothing of the gospel so that she wouldn't accidentally blab about it to the SS. She remembered hearing a man shouting on the radio and tried to ask Mother why that man was shouting, and she was shushed, having to wait till they were home for her question to be answered. "That is our Fuhrer, don't say anything." Mother explained. She remembered Jewish people being rounded up onto traincars and going away. Later when she came to America people would ask her what she knew about what happened. She didn't know anything and when it was explained and shown to her she realized that's where they were taking her neighbors.

We went to meet someone one day and ended up running into Joe, a guy Elder Reed met with Elder Johnston during an exchange. I had not met him and he was pretty out of it, but was telling us to come back another day. We said a prayer with him and during it he draped his arm around Elder Reed as he gave the prayer.

I found some powerful salsa in a missionary apartment we closed down. It was delicious.

We are making excellent progress with one of our investigators, Dwayne. Last night we taught him the first half of The Plan of Salvation with a senior missionary couple, the Cheney's. Pray for Dwayne, that he continues to make excellent progress and receives powerful answers to his prayers.

-Elder North
