This week was great! We had alot of things happen this week. My comp and I had to g to the offices with all the new missionaries. We were trained and we learned alot from President! I was talking to a new missionary and he asked me where I was from and I said Brigham City. He said he knew a kid named Mitchell Andersen. HAHA!! I said he was my best friend! His name is Elder Quilter and is from Park City. I guess Susan and his mom are good friends. We kept talking and he loves fly fishing so we talked about that forever. It was a great time and it was great to meet him!
We taught the plan of salvation to a mom and her son. It was a great lesson. I always ask the people if they know WHERE did Christ's spirit go while his body laid in the tomb!? They always say... well with God! BUT when I show them 1 Peter 3:19 and 1 Peter 4:6. They are speechless and they look in their own bible to see if it says the same - and it does! HAHA! Its pretty funny! Jesus loves us so much that he went and preached the gospel to the spirits in the spirit world! She said that she has never heard this before with all of her study in the bible and in other churches. Just with us! We finished the lesson and we testified that its the only doctrine that helps us go to the celestial kingdom as a family! We invited them to church and the mom said she couldn't but her son said.. "Well I will just stay home then and I will go to church with the missionaries! BOOM! Pretty dope! I'm excited!!
