“Last official interviews with President Salisbury”

Well, this week will have to be short because we only have a few computers open at the library today and we're having to take turns. Transfers is already next week again!!! It's crazy how fast times flies!!! So next email will be next Wednesday.

We got to see this older guy we started teaching named Paul. He's a pretty old man in Ravenswood, not super interested but willing to learn and talk! He's met missionaries many times throughout his life and he actually had some really cool book about the Book of Mormon and the ancient America's, so that was cool. We're going to stop by again later this week.

Our exchanges with the Spencer Elders again was fun! Elder Webb and I had an appointment with a family that fell through sadly:( We worked more in the area around their house and ended up finding a house where being a Baptist preacher was the family tradition, so we were surrounded talking to them on their porch for a good bit. That was entertaining as usual, but nothing came from it. 

We had interviews down in Charleston and that was awesome! It was our last official interviews with President Salisbury!! It was sad and it will be weird to have him gone within a month from now!!!! 

We got to teach Tim again on Saturday! We talked more about the Restoration with him and it went really well. It had been a while so we were able to help him connect more of the dots and he understood it really well. He's awesome! Sadly, he couldn't make it to church, he had something break down on his car and he was stuck fixing it 😣 

Also saw the Moore family again this week! They have been reading some of the Book of Mormon, but not as much as they were hoping so we committed them to make a more thorough plan for reading together and we're seeing them again this next Friday! 

I'm trying to remember anything else crazy that happened, nothing terribly exciting. We got to stop in to the "M" family again and talk a little bit. They're doing good, but Sister M has been getting thrown around with her work schedule since she's the new one there. 

So I have been reading through the Doctrine and Covenants lately and I read one scripture there that I have really come to love. It's in section 101 verse 16:

“Therefore, let your hearts be comforted concerning Zion;  for all flesh is in mine hands; be still and know that I am  God.”

I just love the comforting words "all flesh is in mine hands". I have a testimony that everything that happens in your life is absolutely known by the Lord. He has felt your pains and your joys and you are never alone no matter what you go through!

Hope you all have a great week and stay safe!!! PEACE!!

Take Luck,

Elder Goold
