Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week and a happy Easter! This was a pretty interesting week here in liberty!
So a while back Elder Johnson and I met the mayor of Liberty, Carl Pickett, and we had a nice little conversation with him. I didn't think much of it, but he called us the other day and asked if Elder Stringfellow was the one talking and I said yes, this is him, and then he asked us if I was able to say the prayer to start off city council meeting and if Elder Paulsen could lead the pledge of allegiance. We said heck yeah we can haha! We went and did that on Tuesday and it was really cool! Got to explain what we do everyday and that we are those crazy dudes on the bikes! Also found out that Texas has their own pledge of allegiance and and they recite it after the actual one. It was a little weird, but it didn't surprise me cause it's Texas, and it's it own country haha!
Other than that, everything here is pretty much the same. Just trying to find people really. We where going to have a baptism this Sunday, but Lail and Anthony missed their interviews on both Friday and Saturday! That was super frustrating, but they came to church yesterday, said they where sorry and what not, and we ended up having the interviews right after church. They will be baptized next week by their dad who just received the priesthood! It's gonna be super awesome I'm super excited! Just please pray everything goes well! We also got their less active uncle Noe to come to church for the first time in 21 years! He loves us missionaries and he hooks us up with some cool stuff! Really cool guy!
I love Easter time! It's a time for us to remember Jesus Christ and what he did for us! I am so grateful that he suffered and died for us, but knowing that he lived again, and we all will also, brings me great comfort! I am grateful for the plan our Heavenly Father has for each and everyone of us! He really does love us and knows what's best for us! I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary! Wouldn't trade it for anything right now!
Love you guys and hope you have a great week! Go jazz :)
Love, Elder Stringfellow
