So the other day, Elder Pereyra and i were walking down the sidewalk,
and we were behind a group of 4 teenagers and a maybe 3 year old girl...
they were dark skinned. We handed them mormon.org cards and told them to
check out the site. The little girl had ran up about 15 feet and then
she spit 3 or 4 times on the sidewalk in front of us and she yelled
"WATCH OUT FO MY SPIT PEEPO'S!!" We laughed really hard.. and then i
thought of a little analogy.
Sometimes when we are doing something good, or attempting to do good, or
even improving ourselves... Satan will spit a nice loogey right in our
path to try and dirty the path a little bit... that's pretty gross
right? Well luckily Elder Pereyra and i recognized the spit on the
sidewalk so we could avoid it. Sometimes it's difficult to see Satan's
loogeys in our path... so we end up stepping in filth. If we can all try
to recognize those loogeys, then we will continue to walk on more
righteous paths, void of filth and loogeys. (For the complete analogy
see "Discourses of Elder Warr" pg. 7)
Sometimes i will think of little analogies like that and use them in my
Well, we had a great week. we had 6 investigators come to church. yes!
We're having a baptism on June 6 of Erica and her 2 sons Chad and Trent.
We had such an awesome Memorial Day... The Albany Stake put on a picnic
at Niskayuna Park in Schenectady. We were able to wear regular clothes
because there were games and races. We ate burgers, socialized, and then
played ultimate frisbee! it was so much fun, i havent played frisbee
with a big group of people since before my mission. I am exhausted today
because i was dominating the game so much. We probably played for 3
hours, and then there was a softball game going on... and i decided to
play. I went 2 for 2... hitting 2 home runs and 7 RBI's. I am
considering playing Division 1 sports when i get home because i decided
that might be the best path for me. The picnic was a blast, and it was
really fun because there were 12 missionaries there, so it was fun to
have some time with the guys.
welp, that's all... continue to be faithful, and avoid the loogeys on
the sidewalk of life.
i love you guys!
