|Yup, that's Canada|
Anyways, now for the news here in Greenfield/River Valley. That's right we are covering two wards right now, but I'll get to that later. Wednesday I had a super fun exchange with Elder Pouliot here in Greenfield. In the evening we went and taught that Muslim guy who came to the wrong ward last week, Mustafa. We had a quick little lesson with him, answered some of his questions and stressed the importance of the Book of Mormon, it went well. After that we went and balled with a bunch of 14-16 year old black dudes at this park that was close by, it was tons of fun and they asked us the usual questions all about missionary work.
Friday we met with Mustafa again. It was kind of funny, instantly he just had a bunch of question about the restoration, the plan of salvation, the gospel and the commandments. So basically the first 4 lessons. We ended up teaching him the second half of the restoration and the second half of the plan of salvation, and we had to use google translate a bit on our iPads and it helped out a bunch! Having access to that kind of technology is seriously such a blessing. His wife joined in at the end and we invited them both to church.
Saturday Elder Jenson and I tried "cookie contacting." We made a bunch of cookies to deliver to the people in our apartment complex and some less actives just so we could get more familiar with our neighbors and hopefully get in with some less actives. Nobody was really home except one guy who was surprised and super happy haha. We know Gerry (the eternigator) loves food though so we called him and asked if he wanted some and later that night he came and got some and we invited him to church and he actually came haha! Mustafa also came to church, so church was pretty awesome with all the members seeing that we had two investigators sitting with us at church. For Slave Lake that would've just been kind of below average but here it is definitely something to be excited about!
