Chapter 28

The first story i have for you just proves how much the Lord's hand is in this work XD.  We were working in Hamer one day and we were going to call our appointment we had for that night to see if we were still on for tonight.  Right when we hit the call button on our phone, our phone decided it wanted to run out of battery :(.  So we frantically searched the church building for a yellowpages book so we could look up there name.  We ended up finding a yellowpages book, but there names weren't in it.  So we decided to call up the member that was going to come with us to the teaching appointment and asked her if she by chance had the families number.  She unfortunately gave us the grave news that they didn't have the phone number, so we told her that we were just going to show up to the appointment anyways and for her to just plan on meeting us there like the appointment was still on.  So we go to the appointment and end up having a really really really good lesson about baptism.  At the end of the lesson they told us how grateful they were that we came over that day and how they had actually been planning on calling us earlier in the day and canceling our appointment, but as hard as they tried to find the paper we gave them with our number on it they just couldn't find that paper.  So as you can see, this appointment of ours was meant to happen and the Lord was influencing both sides so it would happen XD. 

The next adventure we had is we took one of the families we are teaching, the Phillips, to the temple visitor center this week to watch the restoration video, and man was that an adventure XD.  After the movie we had a really good lesson with them and helped them clear up some of their concerns about faith, and then we went to Reed's Dairy and got some icecream XD.  However, what made it an adventure was on the way back home XD.  So we were about half way to roberts, from Idaho Falls, and the car all the sudden started sputtering at us and slowing down.  We were out of gas :(.  So brother Phillips starts weaving back and forth to swish the gasoline around in the gas tank and try to use up as much as he can and tells us we probably won't make it to roberts.  So me, being the missionary i am, i say a prayer asking heavenly father to let us make it to the gas station in roberts (about 8-10 miles away).  I got an answer instantly that we were going to make it and everything was going to be all right XD.  So i told brother phillips to not worry and that we are going to make it, which we did XD.  So we pretty much had an unplanned object lesson about faith to tie into our lesson about faith that we had earlier that day with them XD, so it was pretty much awesome.  Oh, and that car ride was also the most fun car ride i have been on so far in my mission hahahahaha. XD. Me and my companion were both moving our bodies with the motion of the car so we made it also a fun experience hahahaha XD.

So i have to throw this random fact out there.  I pretty much am becoming a boss omelette maker XD hahahaha.  About 2 to 3 days out of the week i am now making omelettes for breakfast to improve my terrible cooking skills haahaha.  So when i am home in the future, be prepared to eat one of the most delicious omelettes you have ever tasted hahaha XD.

Well, that's all that happened this week so i shall end this wonderfully AWESOME email here XD.  Love you all and peace out till next week XD.

With love,
Elder Arrowchis
