20 and still kicking

Hey guys,

Another birthday and it's a Pday. Is it by chance? I don't think so. Anyways, it was good to see y'all again. This week  the work was slow. We found out a lot this week: that the Spirit can grow as much as your body does, people don't care how much you know till they know how much you care, Chilli's is closed on Christmas Day, foosball tables are super heavy, and saying "fixing to" and "y'all" is so much more better than "going to" and "you guys."

   We spent Christmas with our zone leaders going to member's places, checking on investigaters etc etc etc. This is where we found that the use of  southern words in our day-to-day talk is better then the stuff we grew up with. Like for example, "am fixing to go" sounds much more fufilling than "am going to." We also tried to eat some Chili's but found that they were closed to our disappointment. Dang. Then we helped a member carry a foosball table upstairs. Man, those are heavy!

  I Learned that my spiritual being can grow just like my body does. I have seen that I am more in tune with feeling the spirit more than before. Things that bugged me and made sad have lessend a lot. Answers to questions come easier, and even quiet is more comforting, which is wierd but I know that's a change that this gospel brings, which is sweet. 

  We helped move H.N. She fell off for a while but when we came help she opened up and told us how she thinks the world of us and loves us for helping her in more ways than one. She told how she is telling everyone about us, which is a good thing for her. That just shows when you do more than is required you earn trust.
love Elder (Ryan) Duron!
