"Humourously, but seriously" -- nice spelling

Fall is arriving! It's really cool because the sky here has totally changed color, it's like a pearlescent blue, it is beautiful. I cant believe how some trees can just change colors like that.

Elder Dandridge and i were able to go up to Onandaga Community College to go to a "Faith Fair". We set up a table and decorated it with pamphlets, cards, etc... and we had some cool banners up. The picture will describe. We weren't able to proselyte, but because we are two attractive young men, the people came to our table. :) It was great because we got to talk to a bunch of people from different faiths, and we noticed that the best way was just to find common ground and then expound about the things we believe. We are teaching 3 people that we met at the fair, they are students. I think it's so interesting to see the difference in peoples' views on why we are here. Many people make up their own opinion throughout their lives... whether it's a great spirit, or an unknown god. There are a lot of Christians.. namely Roman Catholics, Baptists, Methodists etc.. but they just dont understand the doctrines in the bible or the reasons for them... it makes me think of 1 Nephi 15:14..."wherefore, they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer and the very POINTS of his doctrine, that they may know how to come unto him and be saved."

I'm grateful for truth, in that it's unavoidable.

I have been in Syracuse for 4 months now... it's all a blur. It feels like i just left Albany.... i realize why they call the 2nd half of a mission "downhill" because the days just fly by. I think that my mind is just so overloaded with information, that i dont have time to think about time. But there are some slow times as well.

Shannon is going to be baptized oct 9 at 7pm. we are excited for her, she's loving church and young womens. Elder Dandridge is going to baptize her... it will be his first! sweet! and ill be conferring the Holy Ghost on her. sweetness.

Humourously, but seriously,

Elder Warr
