Happy Valentine's Day...... Well tomorrow but close enough! This week was crazy fun. Our Stake decided to change the Ward boundaries around and our mission president had told us of the changes that were going to happen like 2 weeks before they announced them to the ward members. We knew the changes were going to be really minor but for some reason all the member thought they were going to count off 1 2 1 2 on every other house just to break up the ward haha. So that made fast and testimony meeting pretty interesting last week, haha Everyone was going up to the pulpit to say goodbye because all of them thought they were going to be moved to a different ward when in all reality they only cut 2 streets out of the entire area. My favorite testimony by far was by Brother Madjeski. He realized how ridiculous everyone was being so he got up and said: " brothers and sisters this is ridiculous, the church is like McDonald’s, if you go get a Big Mac at the McDonald’s on 82nd and you go get a Big Mac at the McDonald’s on Division...... the Big Macs will be the exact same. Trust me, I've had them both" haha I've never heard of that analogy before but it's so true!
Oh and Elder Packer got transferred back to Portland and he is now my District Leader! So we will be seeing each other at least twice a week now. He is in the Cherry Park Ward and because of the ward boundary changes, his area is now a little bigger than ours so we had to give him the car and we are back to walking! But it's all good. I love walking! We get to talk to a lot more people and get to know the area better.
Oh some people to be praying for are Sarah, Wayne, Idea and Luis. They are our main investigators right now and they are all trying to gain a relationship with our Father in Heaven so please be fasting and praying for them. Other than some solid lessons with those investors, nothing else really happened this week. Just a lot of finding and going to visit a lot of perspective elders.
Oh something crazy that happened at church yesterday, this guy came in the building like 10 min before sacrament meeting started and he started clapping his hands really loud to get everyone’s attention and then he yelled " I have been sent here by God to tell you all the Joseph Smith was a pervert" He was standing right in front of me when he yelled this so Brother Took and I, ( by the laying on of hands) showed him the door. Haha so that was a little different. Sorry I don't really have a miracle story this week but just know the church is true.
Love Elder Taysom
