Here's a picture of the Badlands!! I'll send more later.
This last week we taught a lady named L. She is a teacher and was a former investigator that missionaries had just forgotten about as companionships changed. It's been a couple years since she has met with missionaries. We stopped, only expecting to set up a return appointment, but she let us right in, and we talked with her for a while than ended up teaching her the Restoration. As I taught (Elder Peay and I hadn't gone over the Restoration lesson yet... Yay for first day!) I could feel the Spirits presence, especially when we got to the 1st vision. As I recited Josephs experience, the phone rang. Coincidence? I think NOT! Once she hung up again and as we started talking about the BoM and that she could pray to know it is true, the phone rang again! She seemed pretty interested, but it didn't seem like she understood the importance of what we had told her. She asked some pretty good questions and we were able to answer them, and she seemed very accepting with what we had to say. We couldn't set up a return appointment since her schedule is pretty crazy now that school is about to start, although she did accept the commitment to read and pray about what we had taught her.
Other than that, I spent a lot of time in the car. A LOT of time in the car. Not much else happened.
Love you all loads, and hope all is well!
