May 30, 2016

This week was a pretty good week! We had a pretty good time on Monday! We were with all of our district! We have met with Ciera 3 times this week, and she is so ready to be baptised! The ward here loves her! They all want her to sit by her, and all are trying to help us as much as the can Which is so awesome! Wednesday i had a nother district meeting, and it went pretty good i guess! We had some really good teaching visits for the rest of the week, On Thursday we had our car parked on the side of the road and we were out tracking, well some guy needed to be right where our car was, so when we got back he was cussing up a storm at us, and i was like ok we will move our car, and he just kept hollerin at us, and letting us know we were in the wrong. Well my companinon is still pretty knew, and she he thought that he could try and convert this guy! Well im just going to try and tell yall what was going on, but i dont think i can do it justice! Elder Wisden asked him if he was religious, and stood outside of the car! Well this guy was getting way ticked, and so the more my comp talked to closer, louder, and more vulger this guy got! Pretty soon he and this other guy, are about 10 feet away, and they are acting like they are going to mugg him or something! Well finally i had to roll down his window and tell him to get in the car! so he did, and as we are driving off he asked me "what could we have done better to get that guy interested?" what i said back was "you realize that guy was gonna kill you" He never answered untill later that night, and i guess he finally put together all that happened, and he was just freaking out! it was actually kinda funny! then On Saturday we were out doing service at a members farm, and we found, and killed a copper head snake! I am told they are super poisonis so that was pretty neat! That is me holding the snake! Yesterday Ceria chose a spot to be baptised! I dont remember if i told you or not, but she is going to be baptised in a river! So its going to be way fun! Elder Naef gets to come back and baptize her because he is close, and that is who she wants! I am way excited! Today we are going to go fishing, and we are going to have a few missionaries with us! i will try and remember to take a picture of us! Thats really all for my week! I love you and miss you all

Hey everyone how are you doing?
This week has been a pretty good week!! So on Wednesday I had my first District Meeting as a District Leader, and let me tell you, it was something! I think it turned out alright, but i was sure happy when it was over! Then Thursday was the greatest day! We had an investigator who has been investigating for over a year, and the only reason she hasnt been baptised is because she was living with her boyfriend who is a less active member! Well she let us know that they have moved into diffrent houses, and her boyfriend is working on getting the priesthood so he can baptise her! Well then later that night we had a lesson with Ciera! It was so good! She is so awesome! We set a baptism date for June 4th, and she starting crying when we invited her! It was so sweet! Then saturday and Sunday was Stake conferance. Elder Golden of the Seventy came, and it was sooo good! Then Sunday was my 10 month mark! Time has flown by so fast! I am so excited for what is to come though! Yall have a great week, and I love you!

Hey Yall This week was a pretty good week! Monday was a pretty normal one, but on Tuesday we were on Exchanges, and i happened to be in Broken Arrow! I dont know if you know what happened, but that happened to be where some pretty crazy weather was at! Where I was at all we got was some really crazy wind, but Ive been told that a Tornado actually touched down kinda close to where I was at! It was pretty crazy! The sirens were going off right next to us, and stuff! It was actually kinda fun! We got the best tornado advice The guy said (with a very southern accent) "If its gonna kill you its gonna kill you, so you might as well get a good look at it" We had a really slow week with lessons! I am not sure why! I dont know if I have said this or not, but Where the Red Fern Grows was based on a guy who lived here in Tahlequah, and the original one was mostly filmed here in town, and Every year they do a Red Fern Festival well it was Friday and Saturday! The guy who played Billy in the movie is Mormon, and very active! He came down to the Festival, and did a fireside! It was awesome, but how we met him was way cool! we were 30 minutes early to the festival, so we went into a cafe that was right next to the park! we walked upstairs, and this guy and his wife were the only other ones up there! We sat down, and the guy said " Hey Elders come over here for a minute" We started talking to him, and he said that he was from out of town! We started to put together that he was the Guy! Well we finally get it out of him that he was Stewart Peterson the guy who played Billy! He said to his wife not 10 minutes before we walked in that he needed to get a book of mormon for his friend! we gave him one, and talked to him and his wife for quite a long time! We actaully became really good friends, and visited with them for quite a few times over the next two days! One crazy conection is our mission president and Sister Peterson actually grew up in the same town, and had went on a date when they were in Highschool! So Saturday our mission president and his wife came to town, and took us and the petersons and a senior sister missionary from the office out to dinner! We had a really good time! Well during the festival earlier that day we got temporaty tatoos from the cheerleaders from the college! we got them on arms just above the sleeve line. Well after dinner Elder Naef thought it would be funny to show sister Loveland his! She didnt like it,and she started to give me a hard time about letting Elder Naef do that to himself, and as she was talking to me He lifted up my sleeve so she could see my tatoo, and before i could even react She punched me in the Chest pretty hard actually! we all started laughing! well we went to the fireside, and it was great! Stewert Peterson Has such a special spirit! I like him a lot! When President and Sister Loveland were getting ready to leave Sister Loveland shook my hand, and said to me "I hope your chest bruises, and every morning that you look in the mirrior and see your bruise you will remember not to get tatoos" It was actaully really funny! Well sorry this week was so long! 
I love and miss yall so much
Love Elder Sorensen
