This has been a pretty good week! We were blessed so much this week and saw so many miracles! So our investigators, the Hills haven't been to church in a while because of illness and death in their family. Then earlier this week, we found out that there was another close death in their family and that they weren't sure if they were going to be able to make it to church this week. But then we taught them again on Saturday and at the end of the lesson, Jessica Hill said that even if they have to drag their kids in a cart, they were going to be at church. And so Sunday comes around and we're in Sacrament meeting..but they didn't show up..so we were pretty devestated the entire meeting. Then after sacrament meeting, we went out and they were in the foyer..and their son had a cast on his arm! They apologized for being late and they told us the reason for it was because the day before, their son fell off his bike and broke his arm..so they had to put a cast on it. haha..so yeah..it was pretty amazing that in spite of all of the recent trials, they stood to their word and made it to church! The adversary is obviously hard at work, but they still overcame and had a really great time at church! It made Elder Tibbitts and i pretty dang happy! =) haha..
Soo..another cool..yet sad story. We were doing service for one of our member's neighbor, and this guy was really cool! His name was Carl and he breeds and raises exotic birds for a living! WAY fun guy to talk to! Well..so while we were stacking wood for him, he pointed to his other neighbor across the street that was sitting on his porch and told us that his name was Danny something..(i can't remember his last name) and that he used to be a guitarist for the band Leanard Skynard! Apparently he's still really good! He's got his own little studio in his back yard where he plays..but the reason he didn't last too long in the band was because he was an extreme alcoholic and had some major addictions to drugs...so that is way sad to see how someone can just throw everything away like that for something as stupid as drugs and alcohol..what a bummer. =(
well..i hope y'all are doin well!! I miss/love y'all and i pray for y'all! Talk to y'all next week!
