Edmonton - The City of Potholes

Hello everyone,
Transfer calls were today and we got sad news. Elder Monks is leaving for his last transfer and I am getting Elder Liddle. He is from England and that is about all I know!! haha so I will have to get him to say a bunch of Harry Potter quotes!

As for this week, it has been a good one. We weren't able to meet with all our investigators, but we were able to meet with William, our hippy investigator. a funny quote from that lesson, was when we were talking about miracles and he said "oh yeah, Jesus walking on water? Ihat was a yogi practice. It just requires breathing patterns. There are manuals for that." haha He is a strange/awesome guy. We also picked up a new investigator this week that is blind! completely! Like stick and all! and he is super solid so I'm super excited for him. Hopefully he will stay in our area (he is moving) but he is super cool. Maybe we will even get to learn how to read Braille! 

Other than that, there is not much to report on. We had a lesson with a member who has a very low form of autism, so he is fully functional, but still has the attitude of a child. We talked about a lot of random things so I'm not sure how we got on the topic of vegetables, but he said "Broccoli and mushrooms are pornographic vegetables! They are nasty and gross!" haha we both just lost it!

Scripture of the week is Matthew 18:9 " And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire" We need to always remember that it is better to go through life having maybe a little less comfort or "fun" and receive eternal life, rather than indulge and receive the wrath of God. Because that really isn't all that fun ;)

Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
