But lately we have been primarily visiting Less Actives and recent converts. I enjoy going and talking and sharing messages with these folks. We go and visit Sis. Muncaster on a daily basis. She is only less active for health reasons. She is an awesome lady and has a dog named Chester. Yesterday after church we went to visit her and she was not there. So we sat down in her room (she just tells us to) so I popped a bag of popcorn and we watched a movie called the Testaments of Jesus Christ. While we were sitting there wondering where she was we decided to call her cell phone. When she answered she said she was in the ER. And that she might have broken a rib. So we then ran over to the hospital. We talked to her caretaker Julie and she said she would be out in a few minutes but we had to get to another appointment. We told her that we would stop by some time today. And see how she is doing.
For our dinner appointment we went out to Doc Anderson's place. (He is a Dr. here in Ithaca). We had porkchops for dinner. Then we had a awesome conversation about the gospel. We talked about how gratitude is perhaps the most important attribute that we all can have. Because God doesn't give us things that we cannot handle. He gives us trials and afflictions to learn from and grow. And though it may seem hard to be thankful for the the things that we suffer, think of how much we learn and grow from that trial. God knows that we can handle it, we just have to prove to ourselves that we can do it. "Believe in yourself or no one else will"
We had some pretty cool door knocking experiences this week. We found four FAMILIES that were interested in hearing more. So we will have a busy week ahead of us.
I hope you all are doing well. I appreciate the love and support from all of you. You are all in my prayers.
