Paducah! - Paducah, Kentucky

Hello Everyone!

Paducah is such an amazing area. I just love this town. It's just like downtown Gilbert, but instead of just one street, there are several blocks of cute little old buildings. We have an amazing bakery that's
been here since 1927 and it's just delicious. The Ohio River is cool and they have a giant mural wall and a steam train by the flood gates. We are full-time bike and bus so we actually get to just be out and talk to people. I am loving it.

We knocked on a man's door and he was just kind of hesitant and trying to find a polite way to tell us away. We just kept testifying anyway and when we realized he wasn't yet ready to let us in we just sat down on his porch chairs and invited him to have a seat too. He did and we had a whole restoration lesson. He accepted the invitation to read the Book of Mormon and actually really liked all we shared. It turns out he was more interested than he thought he was. If I would have feared or just walked away accepting that he wasn't interested then he still wouldn't know the truth about the Book of Mormon and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Love you all

Josh made us a rabbit on my last night in McMinnville. It tastes like chicken! 

My new companion is Elder Hatch. He is super awesome! 

Elder Tolman trained me. He was my first companion
He is heading back to Idaho now. We were both
greenies but it seems that I only have 12 weeks left.
Where did the time go?

  1. Poor, deluded suckers. Joe Smith was a consummate con artist - but I guess the Morons are like the Catholics - it's a business with a big gross income and a good job, I suppose.
