|Just the good ol' boys...|
Monday again we went to the Stevens and had a good time.
Tuesday was rather fascinating. We went walking and finding; this guy from a car dealership called us over and so we went. He asked what was the reason or reasons people thought Mormons are weird and he told us to "only speak by the spirit" (like 4 times). He asked us for a Book of Mormon and gave us his standpoint with everything. He told us to start telling everyone we meet that "the water floweth from my mouth like a rock" and to read 2 and 1 Peter backwards....yup. Then he kept saying he is Peter and his brother is John. Odd guy, but good talk. We then went to Malvern with a member and found a cool lady who met with missionaries in the 90's and wants us to come back. We also might help her husband with his cattle.
|Never meaning no harm...|
Thursday was National Star Wars day, so that was cool. We went with Devaux to see a less active, who just so happened to be one of our former investigator's son. She was happy to see us and gave us hugs and told us her son was asleep so we'll go back another time. Weather here flips so bad. It was raining and cloudy so we stopped in Walmart while walking to beat the weather and contact in there for a bit. We played volleyball that night and it was fun. Micah Stevens and his family was there and that made for a good time. Micah's extended family was there and the kids with them kept recording us missionaries on their phones and being silly. The dad kept telling us to "be humble" cause people there "haven't played before" and "there's girls here." I would have had sympathy and listened....but all the girls there were volleyball players and us guys have never played! So we were hitting it a little hard but they were beating us down! So every time he said to humble, we would pet the ball and say "be soft little one" and smack it as hard as we could.

Friday was tough. It started off with a very short weekly planning session and a companionship study. We then went and saw Dan and studied Lehi's dream with him. It took about an hour or so, we wanted to be thorough. Then I had to write something up for president at the church so we did that and then came back to the apartment to get our sticks and head out for the 13 mile walk to a less actives house. About 8 or 9 mile into the walk we saw a tender mercy of the lord, and let me tell you how tender it was. This member, I feel horrible cause I don't remember her name, pulled up and asked if we needed a ride and so obviously we accepted, but that's not the best part. We weren't even driving off yet when she asked if we wanted ice cream and water...this sweet lady took us and got us ice cream cones and water and we talked about missionary work for about 20 minutes! She drove us to the members and we had a good talk. He's going through some CRAP! I can't really say cause I don't want to just expose his life, but in a gist, he is no longer in a relationship. He's taking it hard and it's showing. But we were able to talk him into calling and meeting with the bishop on Sunday. We then were picked up by the other elders (thank goodness) and then we went to dinner with the Rogers! After that we stopped by to say goodnight to brother Jordan. I got home and wobbled into the shower and then to bed.

|Since the day they were born.|
Well today we woke up at 4 to get to north Little Rock before 6:30 so we could send off elder Hill. I think this is one of my hardest goodbyes, well, tied with Elder Edwards. It's only been 6 weeks and I feel like it's been a year long friendship. It breaks my heart but I'll survive. Luckily we have phones haha. It's also sad seeing elder Goaslind leave. We've become super close as well. But I'm hopeful for this transfer! I love you guys! Have a great week!

I'm writing this in a car that's jam packed full of luggage. I'm telling you if you need a lot of stuff packed up in a small space, missionaries are the guys to call! We're Tetris masters who are comfortable in any situation haha.
