Recently, we were able to fly to Orlando for a little family downtime. Although it was tons of fun, I will say that I have a greater appreciation for Elder Hayden and the heat/humidity of Florida. He did tell us that we were in Orlando away from the coastline which makes it better for him but to say it was miserable at time was an understatement. My testimony grew 10-fold at the commitment and dedication that our missionaries have to serve missions away from family and comforts of home. Love him and miss him so much, but could not be prouder of this young man. Enjoy!!
(no, we didn’t get to see him while we were there… L)
1. The Book of Mormon is the sickle we need to use
2. Why do you believe happens after you die?
3. This is the magic McDonald's
4. Sunset beauties
5. We found a castle
This was a great week! We started Tuesday with a great zone conference! We learned about faith while finding, goals, the Book of Mormon, and social media for members. We are underutilizing the importance and power of the Book of Mormon. We were asked to share verses on the street after people share ALL their problems like we are therapists or something.
The second quote is from an investigator Kelly who is super elect. She asked "what do you believe happens after you die because I believe that the body stays here and the spirit goes back to the God that gave it life" literally as Elder Shakespeare was opening Alma 40:11. She is very excited to keep learning.
Third, we went to McDonalds for dinner (sounds like me right) and as we were walking in Elder Shakespeare said "this is the magic McDonald's. Every time we come here something cool happens. As we were walking in I held the door for a guy that exclaimed "Mormons right?! I've never met a Mormon! What do you believe?" So we taught him what we believe, got his address, (it's in Miami) and referred him to the Ft. Lauderdale mission. Pretty cool stuff.
Here's a cool picture of a sunset
Also we found out that someone lives in a castle. Yup, that's their home.
That was our week and I loved it. Love you all! Thank you for your continued prayers and support!
Love Elder May
