Week 10 in Winchester, Tennessee

Dear Friends and Family,

This week was good and we did a lot of work. It was fun but also stressful. We had fun trip up in Altamont last p-day as we hiked to Greeter Falls. It was very humid and hot, but it was worth the view. On Tuesday we got a less active member to take us around. We had a couple of lesson with him that night. Then a deeper lesson with a ex-Mormon. Those lessons are difficult

with the questions being stressful to answer. He wanted good answers you see, and I tried to keep it simple. The gospel of Jesus Christ doesn't have to be complex to be true.
On Wednesday we had district meeting in Jasper ... the trip was fun and the sisters drove. We ate at Arby's after the meeting and did some service at a member's house where they fed us afterwards.  We even had a lesson with their nonmember son, the lesson went well, it was about the Holy Ghost and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thursday was tough, we went everywhere, with nobody talking to us. We had a good lesson right before dinner and then a member took us out and we got two lessons with him. On Friday the member who owns the restaurant on the square had us for dinner again and I tried catfish, it wasn't bad. I had it with coleslaw and hushpuppies.
On Saturday we had a miracle, a less active recent convert who is 15 years old went out with us to a lesson, and he opened up about the gospel. Usually we try to teach him while he plays video games. Yesterday we had an investigator come to church.
1 Kings 19
 11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

Elder Blazzard
