Week 75: #HookUps

Hello everyone, hope all is going well! Today was our Temple P-Day which is why i am emailing today. Going to the temple is such a great blessing! I love it! Our week was pretty good this week. We got to go to a YSA meeting where pres. manion talked about not being stupid while serving in the YSA which is pretty obvious. I also got to show my ingrown toe to sister manion so we could get an appointment set up to see a doc sooner, so we are going this week. We also got to go to an Oilers game yesterday! We can go if we bring an investigator or less active with us! We got the tickets from the Oilers General Manager because Elder Monks dad knew a guy who knew a guy... so the seats were sweet!
This week we experienced the good, the gross, and the inbetween. We went to visit a LA whose house the last time we visited them was a mess. We walked in and it looked cleaner, but when we went to sit down in the same spot as last time, the same cheerios, chips, etc. were there including some more stuff. so that was pretty gross. We had a really good lesson with our investigator who has kinda started to lose interest, but the spirit was strong and we invited him to pray about all of our meetings and if they were true and what not. He did and he said he felt really good so we are looking forward to our next meeting where we will try again to put him on a baptismal date. We went on exchanges with the spanish elders and i pretty much just sat with both my thumbs shoved up my rear end because i could only understand words and some phrases. But it was funny because there was a member the was making fun of me in spanish saying i couldnt speak spanish and was a white boy and what not, but i understood that one! haha so we all just started laughing.
It snowed again this week a little over a foot in two days. This was right after basically all of it had melted and everyone was getting there hopes up of an early spring... gotta love Canada eh? #LastWinter
Quote of the week comes from the hockey game yesterday. The less active that we brought has hair like will smith in the fresh prince of bel-air and everybody was talking about it. one guy yelled "whoa man you just put me back into 1989!" haha it was great.
Scripture of the week is Helaman 16:23
"And notwithstanding the signs and the wonders which were wrought among the people of the Lord, and the many miracles which they did, Satan did get great hold upon the hearts of the people upon all the face of the land." It doesnt matter where we are or what others are doing, the only way to ensure that we stay out of Satans snares are to do the primary answers. Pray and read the scriptures everyday, and attend church every sunday. As we do this we will be in the protective custody of the Lord.
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
