Adventures in FLMTH Week 8: "Ok, can anyone here tell me what a Pokey-Man is?"

Hey there Mommas, llamas, and President Obamas,

Honestly, this week was just another week on the mission. There wasn't a whole lot of stuff going on and not a whole lot of things to report. It's all good though, I'm sure that things will start picking up here shortly.

We had a few pretty good few lessons this week. We were able to teach Clifford about where our church comes from and why there are so many churches around today. He said he would pray about which church was right for him and we promised that God would let him know which one that was. We also taught Mark a few times, once reading from Moroni 10 and another listening to President Benson's talk Beware of Pride. He seemed to get a lot out of it.

The cake-taking lesson this week was with our recent convert, Meghan. We brought along a member in the ward who's just old as old can be. During our lesson on the Ten Commandments, he looks at us dead in the eyes, like the salvation of his soul was on the line and said, "I have a question for all of you. Ok, can anyone here tell me what a Pokey-Man is?" I lost it.

Just like all other weeks here, this one was chalked full of service. We worked with the Habitat for Humanity (and got free shirts woot woot!), the local food bank, a member who was moving his family into a new house (they have seven was ridiculous), and setting up for a luau that a community outreach program had organized. It's always a blessing to be able to serve those around us.

It's really tripping me out to think that this time next year, I'll be home. This mission has gone by SO fast. All the missionaries that have been out for longer than me say that these next few months are just going to FLY by. We'll see.

Again, I'm sorry for the lameness of this email. I guess that some weeks just aren't as exciting as others. We'll have some meetings and other shenanigans this week, so hopefully more to talk about. 

I'm praying for you. Stay safe out there friends!
