This week was good.
We talked to a drunk guy this week that we prayed with 7 times in a row. It was an interesting experience. He gave us his contact info and said to call him. He was baptized in the LDS church a long time ago and then got into some bad things. He told us about how he was in the marines and has killed 6 people and that he has never forgiven himself. He was drunk so I'm not sure how accurate things were. He said he drank to try and hide it. The man said that it never worked and that the pain of the past always came back. It was a testimony to me that worldly things never heal a wounded spirit. To heal a spiritual wound, you need spiritual medicine (Atonement). To heal a wounded body, you need physical medicine.
We have are still working out with the military recruiter. He works us pretty hard, but my body gets off to a good start everyday. We do running and upper body stuff and abs mostly. He is really good at push-ups.
Our investigators didn't come to church again. One of them didn't want to and the other one that came before had to go to the ER. Everyone is alright though.
Thank you Grandma & Grandpa for the letters. I read them and appreciate them a lot even though I am terrible at writing back.
Also, when Elder Christofferson came the other week he said that most of the senior missionaries have at one point in their life been backed up to the wall of faith. Have you ever had an experience in your life when your faith was all that you had to rely on? When you think about your mission, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Thanks for everything!
Love, Elder Udy
