Tuesday night miracle

October 24, 2016

Another great week down in the WVM! I know I say that every week, but
that's mostly because it is true. Even the tougher weeks and the rainy
ones are great because it is a week spent getting tired in a righteous

Miracle story: 8:40 on Tuesday night Elder Flynn and I found ourselves
in a random parking lot downtown with a cancelled lesson and nowhere
to be. We said a quick prayer and when we looked up we saw Fred Meyer
truck driving by with the slogan "You'll find it at Fred Meyers"
painted on the side. Fred Meyers is not even in our area but we both
felt pretty strongly we should check it out so we went to the store
and tried to find whatever it was we were looking for! We can't
proselyte in stores so I was praying while we were walking around that
whoever we were supposed to talk to would bring up the church first.
After a little while it was about time to go home and we had found no
success. We decided that we would walk around the store one last time
and just give a compliment to everyone that we saw. One aisle we
turned up, we started complimenting a man on his ring and his
girlfriend spoke up and was like "hey Elders, where is the ward
building around here?" turns out she was a less-active member of the
Warrenton ward and they didn't  have her records in the ward. We saw her
and her boyfriend walking into the church building on Sunday.

The church is true people! Life is hard with or without the gospel,
but with it you at least have the Priesthood, the Holy Ghost, and
treats in Sunday school.


Elder Paul Thomas

If there is one word that describes all the woes and threats that exist today, it's indifference. You see tragedy on television for three minutes and then comes something else and something else. Indifference, to me is the epitome of evil. The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's Indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference. Because of indifference, one dies before he actually dies. - Elie Weisel
