Hey everyone! It is starting to get colder here. We had snow for a solid 45 seconds one day. Haha I love Nevada. The people here are great. This week has been a good week with some great miracles.
Monday was an interesting day. We had our Zone Activity where we cooked food (I'll send pics next week) and then in the evening we had an interesting meeting with a less active who we are pretty sure was intoxicated. He might not even be a member since we can't seem to find his records. We will keep trying.
Tuesday we went on exchanges and Elder Roundy got to go on his first exchange ever! It was fun. His bike tire got flat just before we got to our really hilly area so we walked up to where we wanted to go. We were able to schedule a lesson with some people who haven't been coming to church much lately, and we had a good gospel discussion with Bruce. He wants to know the truth, but how he expects to find it shows that he isn't fully ready just yet, but he one day will be.
Wednesday we got to finally have a lesson with Amanda and Gordon! Amanda is a member and Gordon is not, but she wants the family to come back to church and he is totally open to learning and joining! They haven't been in much contact with us, but we stopped by and caught Amanda during her lunch break while she was at home and set up a lesson that night! We taught the restoration and it went down very well. We committed Gordon to be baptized but have not set him with a date yet. The biggest challenge will be coming to church since he has to work on Sunday's right now. We will see what happens. We met someone on the street named Ray and we asked him if he would be interested in learning about how God has called a prophet today and he said yes! We are having some trouble with his schedule right now, but it will happen.
Thursday it was cold so for the morning Elder Hadley wanted to walk. Haha he is great. He wants to be an emergency doctor and loves sports. We are kinda opposites but it works out well. We helped out at habitat for humanity and did a lot of moving around tiles. We taught a less active named Jimmie. She is awesome and fun to teach. We are hoping to help her come back to church.
Friday I got sick but was good enough to keep working. We had exchanges for half the day since Elder Hadley needed to do a baptismal interview later in the afternoon. Elder LaBrum and I went and dug holes for a lady named Glenna for her gardening. Elder LaBrum did most of the digging since he is 6' 4" and super strong. He digs really fast. We dug 3 holes 2 feet by 2 feet and 18 inches deep in 2 hours. It was great.
Saturday we had a lesson in the evening with the Carter's. We asked the Hammonds to come and we all taught an amazing Plan of Salvation lesson. There was great testifying and a very joyful Spirit there. I loved it. I felt so happy after and had a glow in my heart I guess you could say. I live for those lessons.
Sunday was good and it rained a bit. Had a Q and A lesson with Amanda and Gordon.
I want you all to know that the Gospel blesses us as individuals, as well as it blesses our famiies.
Love you all!
Elder Kynan Sorochan
