Well another week has come and gone! Where does the time go!?
Monday we drove to Billings, Montana (4 hour drive) and we got some shopping done and then went to the mission home and stayed there with 6 other Elders. Then we got up at 3 am and got on the vans and started towards Helena which is normally a 4 hour drive. It took us 6 hours to get there because it was snowing so hard, one of the passes was closed and we had to go back and travel another route to get there! But we finally got to Mission Leadership Council and it was an awesome meeting! Then we turned around and traveled back to Billings.
We got back into town about 9 pm and had not eaten dinner yet so we went to Steak N Shake... And as we were waiting for our food this guy comes up to the 4 of us and starts asking us questions about the Priesthood, the Bible and the Book of Mormon. At first I thought this guy was an RM just playing a joke but then I realized it wasn't and that this guy was "golden". So we get all his contact info and tell him that missionaries will be getting a hold of him. Then we eat our food and by the time we are done the place is closed up and so its only us and the clean up crew. As we are getting up to leave the same guy comes up and says "You know how you use the priesthood to bless homes... Well can you bless businesses? Can you bless Steak N Shake?" Well we had never been asked that before, we were unsure but after talking about it we told him... If your manager is alright with it then we can do that. So he goes and talks to his manager and comes back all excited, "He said that would be great!" Haha so long story short, I witnessed the Steak N Shake in Billings get blessed, it was great!
Wednesday morning we were able to attend the temple, it was so amazing to be able to go again! Then we ran some errands and headed back to Wyoming, got home late evening. The rest of the week was busy with lots of teaching. We gained 2 new investigators who are both on date to be baptized April 12th! They are both young children but are so smart and so ready to be baptized! There are so many investigators, less actives, recent converts and members to teach! This area is a very vibrant proselyting area that I hope to be able to add to! It is awesome, and truly a blessing to be a part of!
I love this work! I got to go, we are leaving to drive about 3 hours to where we will be on exchanges for 3 days. Talk to you all next week! Love you all, thank you for the support!
P.S. I will try to remember to bring my camera cord next week so I can send some pics.
