On a lighter note, I'm done with my first transfer in the field, and.... I'm staying in McComb! Thank goodness. I love this place, and my work is not done here! The work is progressing, people are changing and drawing nearer unto Christ, investigators are becoming missionaries, baptisms are approaching, the kingdom is growing.
This week, I went on transfers with Sister Blaylock in Albany. Most eventful part of that day was a gnarly flat tire that kept us from getting anything done until 4 pm. Then zone conference is always fun.
So we visit a lady in a nursing home. With a disgruntled look on her face, she says, "There's something in my butt. It's climbing in there. I need to see what it is." Yeah, I don't know either.
There's a kid in our branch who told us a very long story during church, which included, but was not limited to: "The daddy alligator gave me a ride through the water. I'm not lyin, this is true. There were 557 alligators and they all thought I was their uncle. My brother's leg got stuck in the railroad tracks. Then I got bitten by a vampire bat." It gets better, but I'll leave y'all wondering.
I love this place. Every day is an adventure. And it's even better that I get to share the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ with these people.
Read the Book of Mormon, y'all! We've got it for a reason. Let it change your life :)
