And then you just eat it off the floor

Buenos Dias!

Hey, speaking of food, this week I had some amazing hispanic food. Homemade tortillas smothered in baccon grease, layer of black beans, queso fresco, and beef. Yep, super healthy food. Appearantly they just buy bacon grease in a can. That's so awesome.

Anyways, exciting news about transfers! I'm not gonig anywhere, and neither is Elder May, except he's going district leader, which is something nobody expected, especially him. He's going to be an awesome district leader though. Our district is going to be a lot of the same missionaries, just trading places with others. We're also going to get a greeny! Wow, I wasn't a greeny that long ago.

Awesome thing #1: We had a lesson with somebody who's been investigating the church for over a year. That morning, we were thinking about what we were going to teach her, and we thought about the Book of Mormon and the important role it plays in the conversion process. We went to the lesson, and in the first 5 minutes, it seemed like we were going to drop her (tell her we couldn't teach her anymore,) because she wasn't keeping her commitments. But then she she starts talking about how she's still confused and believes the book of Mormon is true and reads it to find answers she can't find in the Bible. Needless to say, we didn't want to drop her anymore. So now we're focusing on getting her to understand the importance of the Book of Mormon.

Awesome thing #2: We had a regional stake conference, where we and about 50 other stakes in the South East watched a broadcast from Salt Lake. Elder Ballard spoke about missionary work, and rescuing Less active members. This was really cool because just the week before, our branch presented our branch mission plan and goal for this year, and it included a lot of things Elder Ballard talked about. Our branch is ahead of the game. :)

Nos vemos

Elder Clark
