This week has been really fun. We were able to do some service for the Cameron Park people who were putting on fire works. We helped set up on Friday which was pretty fun then the following day we were able help take tickets. I met this really nice guy who is a firefighter. For all those that were helping he offered food and water. After he had left, Elder Pearson and I thought me must be a member by the way he treated us. Following that, through talking with him, we found out he is a member. It's just cool to see that there are a lot of people who are LDS that go out of their way to make sure people are taken care of. Especially when it come to having water at a small event like fire works.
Five months ago as a mission we were given the challenge to read the Book of Mormon marking every time that Jesus Christ speaks or his name is mentioned and any Christ-like attributes mentioned. This week I was able to finish that challenge. I prayed and asked Heavenly if the Book of Mormon is true and I am proud to say that I got my answer and I know that the Book of Mormon is true. It is just so amazing that no matter how many times you read that book you can receive a spiritual witness of of its truthfulness. I hope if you have recently been able to receive that witness that you will start and ask Heavenly and renew your faith of the Book of Mormon.
Then we have a cool investigator who has a couple of old tractors that are pretty cool. They are not running but they are sure cool to look at.
Today we were able to go to Gold Bug Mine. It is an old ore mine that has been shut down for years. It's nothing too big or fancy but it was pretty cool to see how people made a living. Also, to see how difficult it was to see how miners got gems out of the ground. I know why people who work in a mine are always hunched over because you have to hunch over every time that you go into a mine. My back sure was hurting by the time I got out of there and I was not in there for very long.
The place that I am serving in is located right next to an airport. The roads next to the airport are very wide and people are able take off from the road itself because of their size.
I hope you all have a great week and life continues to be full of
miracles and you enjoy life.
