Elephants...for lack of a better title

So sorry everyone - this week is REALLY short. We just got back from riding elephants, and it took forever to get there and get back. 


The Work: 


The work was very fun this week. Very hard, very fun, very rewarding, and very spiritual. I love working with Elder Young - he is an absolute spiritual giant, and I love his presence as we go out and invite others to come unto Christ. You can feel the power when he testifies. Great guy. Investigators are doing ok - we only had an opportunity to meet a couple times this week with our investigators. They were very busy. This week is Zone conference. It should be fun.

The Culture: 

- People drive cars here on the left side of the road... and they drive a little crazier than normal. Hahahahaha it is sure fun riding a bike around. 

- Everywhere is pretty safe... not a lot of theft or anything in my area. 

- Elephants are domesticated here.

 Dang... that's big.

The Funnies: 

We went to ride the elephants and one of the babies hit Elder Young and Sister Hayes in the face hahahahaha. It liked to attack us. I think it was just playing. 

The 50 years

The Spiritual Thought: 

"It is not the statistics that are reported or the meetings that are held but whether or not individual people - ministered to one at a time just as the Savior did - have been lifted and encouraged and ultimately changed." Try to lift someone else's life this week. Make sure you focus on people in your personal work and your spiritual work. We are all God's children, so let's treat each other like it.
