Transfers! I'm with Elder Clark!

So transfers were this week. I didn't get moved, but Elder Anderson did. He is now in Gretna, NE and Elder Clark came up from Lincoln, NE to be with me in Sioux Falls! So that's awesome. He is really funny and we do so many things that are like the SAME. We both tend to use "thee" and thou" when joking around and now we often have lightsaber fights with the lightsabers that he has. This will be a fun transfer.

This week was pretty awesome too! We have talked to a lot of people but not many of them are home when we try to talk to them again. But we met an awesome women named Ashley. She is someone that was talked to before by missionaries that I had only met once. But she is awesome. She recognized that this world doesn't have guidance. As we talked about prophets and how there were none for a long time she just stopped us and asked "Do you think that there are prophets today?" She was very pleased when we said that there is a prophet today and that she could know that it is truth from God. She mentioned that she doesn't know if she can 100% accept this right now but we just assured her that God will help her have the right timing and that we do not know God's timing most of the time. He usually comes when we aren't expecting it. So Ashley is awesome. She said that she would work towards October 8th to be baptized and it seems that she will make it. I'm really excited to go back and talk to her.

Otherwise, this week was kind of disappointing to me, just because there are people that Elder Anderson and I were teaching that don't really want us to come back and keep teaching them. And we aren't finding very many people that actually want us to teach them. There was a man who is of the Islamic faith who like yelled at us, saying "that book(the bible) never says that Jesus claimed to be the Son of God," and "I know the Bible better than anyone. You must read the Holy Quran." The next day, we found the verse of John 10:36 "Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God." I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that all men must come unto him or they cannot be saved in the Kingdom of God. The Spirit of God has told me that these things are true and that I have been forgiven of my sins. And if I keep of this path I can be saved with my family and live in God's presence forever.
