To start off with... I have a new nickname for the natives in the area that I am serving... the PORTLANDIAN PANZIES!!!!!!
. As we were
walking around on Friday we also saw a man legitimately trudging around
on skis. Soooo... that was all very unique
|Where's Waldo I mean Elder Jorgensen??|
We did see some miracles on Wednesday before the snow hit. On Wednesday I was on Splits with Elder Smith, from Portland. He was trained by Elder Morrison and before he got moved to Portland he was comps with Coop... so that was fun. And we had 3 really good less active/recent convert lessons. We went by Mario, who says he should be ready to get the Priesthood in a month. We went by the Acevedo family, and just started talking with them, and somehow Hno Acevedo brought up a scripture that someone had shared with him 5 years ago when he was having a really hard time, and it helped him out a lot. He didn't even know the guy, and he couldn't remember the scripture. So as we were leaving I felt like I should share D&C 122:7-9 with them, because that is just an incredibly powerful scripture that talks about going through trials.
Then after some appts fell through we went to another less active family, the Munoz. The last time we saw them we challenged them to read from the BOM 5 minutes every day. So when we walked in Hno Munoz PERFECTLY explained to us the first 12 chapters of 1Nephi...
