Ice Storms on Sundays. Why? (Week 24)

This week has been pretty good, and we have taught have some good lessons lessons.

On Tuesday, we went to Wynnewood and met with the Church of Christ preacher and had a good discussion with him. We were trying to teach a Restoration, but we only got half-way through because we got on the topic of baptism by fire. Haha, it got pretty deep and we kept trying to move forward with the lesson. He is a great guy and is originally from Europe, but came to America to practice religious freedom. He is very open to us and interested in what we offer. He doesn't believe miraculous works (priesthood) are on earth anymore, so that is what we are going to talk him about this Tuesday, and then hopefully finish teaching the restoration.

On Wednesday, we taught the F~ family and brought the Pletchers over for the lesson. We taught them the Doctrine of Christ and read Nephi 2 with them. The lesson was awesome and the spirit was really strong. We got the whole family really involved with the lesson and showed them a really cool object lesson - 7 Nails object lesson) where you have to balance 6 nails (Doctrine of Christ) on top of one that represents Jesus Christ. B~ is still struggling with getting work off on Sunday. We committed him to pray individually and as a family to get work off, and next time we go over we are going to focus on keeping the Sabbath day holy and we are going to set up a time that we can take them on a tour of the church building with Brother Kelly.

This week we got a new investigator couple in Davis. They are a young black family that lives in the apartment of an old less active that moved. They are pretty cool and when we first found them, the father invited us right in. Last week we taught them a Restoration with the commitment to read and pray, this week we are going to teach the Plan of Salvation because they had a loss in the family recently.

Things have been good this week, except that we got hit with a huge ice/snow/hail storm Sunday morning. we only had one hour of church because only 32 people came. I'm surprised we made it to church. Anyways I got to go now, I love you all! See you next week!

Sincerely, Elder Watkins
