This week was a thousand times better than last week 7/31/16 Week #56

Hey guys! This week was a thousand times better than last week.

So our area is a branch but we go to the church building where all of the wards are. And for the past two week our branch has had the most people show up for church than all of the wards in the South Stake area. Elder Medley and I are doing a ton of less active work and strengthening the members. Its a ton of fun. This area used to be way tough, crazy what some hard work can do. Its doing way good now.

So Sophiap and Teeda showed up to church again. I'm really excited for them. We can only meet them once a week because he is so busy with work, but they have some really good faith. We might see a couple baptisms in a month or two. Ive gotten really close to this couple. They are way awesome. Can't wait to see what happens.

For Bong Rith we have a plan to help him stop drinking coffee and tea. He committed to completely stop in two weeks, so we will see what happens. Hes down to a cup a day instead of 3 or 4. We had a really good lesson about the Sabbath day and what Gods wants us to do in this life. Hes comin a long. Its not easy.

Funniest thing happened the other day-- Elder Medley and I were coming out of our house to unlock our gate and this insane lady who sells vegetables and meat outside of our house was just waiting outside our gate. So we talked to her as we were opening the gate to take our bikes out and she asked if she could come in. Before we could say anything she ran into our front yard and yelled "Oh my gosh" and started to rip all of the leaves off this tree. My comp and I just looked at each other not knowing what to do. I guess the leaves on this tree are way delicious and expensive, i had no idea. She told us thank you and had a handful of leaves and then ran out and started selling them outside or house. Ha it was awesome. I guess you make a soup called Slamajoo with it. I'm going to ask her to make it for me.

Well looks like Idaho is still as beautiful as ever. Miss you guys.
