5????/SECTION 89


My goal in writing this weekly email is to guilt trip all of you that are members of the church that maybe haven't been doing as much missionary work as you should be.... Just kidding, take it how it is, but if that is the case then I invite you to start doing more missionary work:)

We were all over the place this week! We started off in Jones Falls at their district meeting and then exchanged after! I'm sure it was amusing for all around us to watch two, peculiarly dressed, white kids hauling around a huge bag of luggage and and excessive amount of groceries. We carried this load from Towson to Baltimore with only a little bit of assistance from the bus #BusLife. All in all the exchange was pretty eventful, between soap box preaching on the bus and teaching people that may or may not have been under the influence of something illegal and/or smelled like urine. (Welcome to Baltimore)

Wednesday we exchanged back and later that evening went on another exchange with the Essex elders, Elder Campbell came here with me. We celebrated Doctrine and Covenants Section 89 Appreciation Day (commonly known in the world as "4/20" or #420blazeitYOLOswag) while on this exchange with a dinner appointment at a members home. After the dinner appointment we became aware of the fact that their entire kitchen was completely infested with ants and a very fresh arrangement of other insects as well. Yummy!

Our investigator Justin has been on fire lately. We stopped by on Friday to get him prepared for his baptism interview on Saturday and he had an interesting request from us... He wanted NOT 1, NOT 2, NOT 3, NOT 4, BUT 5 COPIES OF THE BOOK OF MORMON that he could give to his girlfriend, cousins and brothers who he has already been sharing his testimony with about the Book of Mormon. He has had some really cool experiences with the Book of Mormon and all he wants to do is share it with everyone! Not to get into too much detail, but he had a dream (before he read anything from the Book of Mormon) with great spiritual significance that actually quoted a passage of scripture from the Book of Mormon. He tells everyone he sees that the Book of Mormon is a book of answers, and he is exactly right! If you don't know that for yourself then read it and you will soon know that! If you aren't sharing it like Justin is then I encourage you to also read it and pray about it and you will want to! Justin has already passed out 2 copies of the Book of Mormon and is getting baptized this Saturday. We're super pumped about that!

Have a good week!!

-Elder Larson
