Week 62: Hockey, Vegans, and Tracting

Hello everybody, hope all is going well for ya.
 This week was pretty good, and we experienced a lot of different things this week. We played Hockey last week which was a lot of fun, and we went tracting. a lot. But it's all good, because that is where all the crazy stories come from. unfortunately, there wasn't anything too crazy that came of it this week. And we also ate with a Vegan couple this week. That was an experience.
We also got to do lots of service this weekend. We got to serve the seniors of Beaumont a Christmas brunch at the library. That was fun. people were jumping up and down off the tables and there were broken hips everywhere. Just kidding, that would have been cool though. But it was great to serve them and have fun with them. At the end there was a youth choir composed of like 40 10 year old girls and 2 boys that sang Christmas hymns. so it was a lot of fun. We also helped out a Christmas elves organization which basically gives Christmas to families that just can't make it happen, so it was a great experience.
One quote of the week comes from tracting. We knock on the door and we hear "Oh my Go(sh) its the Mormons." He then opens the door and says hey, you Mormons" it should be noted that he was wearing a skeleton costume with kid makeup on his face...
The other quote is from Elder Holland's talk "Remember Lots Wife"- "The past is to be learned from, but not lived in."

Scripture of the week is 2 Nephi 33: 10-15 which is probably one of my favorite set of scripts
"10 And now, my beloved brethren, and also Jew, and all ye ends of the earth, hearken unto these words and believe in Christ; and if ye believe not in these words believe in Christ. And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good.11 And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye—for Christ will show unto you, with power and great glory, that they are his words, at the last day; and you and I shall stand face to face before his bar; and ye shall know that I have been commanded of him to write these things, notwithstanding my weakness.12 And I pray the Father in the name of Christ that many of us, if not all, may be saved in his kingdom at that great and last day 13 And now, my beloved brethren, all those who are of the house of Israel, and all ye ends of the earth, I speak unto you as the voice of one crying from the dust: Farewell until that great day shall come.14 And you that will not partake of the goodness of God, and respect the words of the Jews, and also my words, and the words which shall proceed forth out of the mouth of the Lamb of God, behold, I bid you an everlasting farewell, for these words shall condemn you at the last day.15 For what I seal on earth, shall be brought against you at the judgment bar; for thus hath the Lord commanded me, and I must obey. Amen."
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
