We were walking down the street and we passed this lady who was bent over like she was looking for something on the ground. We kept walking a little bit and watched her and we saw that there was a pigeon a few feet away from her and she was trying to catch it. I don't know why. My companion and I looked at each other and thought we might talk to her. We went over and asked her if she needed help with anything and she said yes, that she wanted us to help her catch this pigeon. She took off her sweater and gave it to me to use as some sort of net or something to catch it. well, a few minutes later, I had caught this pigeon and gave it to her. She then walked to a police officer and gave it to him and walked away. I still don't know what the point of all of that was. We tried to share a message with her, but as soon as she gave the pigeon to the police officer, she ran away. Super weird but funny.
We were also having lunch with one of our investigators named Laura. She is nice and not too crazy. We had lunch, and shared our message and we were getting ready to leave when she starting talking about marijuana. She said that her son really likes it and she taught us how he uses it. She then said she wants to start a marijuana farm for him so he can have a lot more of it. As she said this she got all excited and went to her cupboard and brought us a bottle of marijuana seeds that she is going to plant for her farm. We had another appointment to get to, so we decided to have that conversation another day.
The people here are so great, I love them. This week we had exchanges with the zone leaders. It was a pretty good time. I went to their area and my companion stayed in ours. We visited a couple different people and two of them had the same quote from president Nelson (I think) on their wall that really stuck out to me. It said: "Every day is a day of decision, and the decisiones we make determine our destiny". I was thinking about how true this is. every day we have the opportunity to make tons of decisions. We have many opportunities to decide if we are going to keep the commandments or not. In my favorite scripture in Mosiah 2:41 it says "consider the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God..." I know that being obedient in all of our decisions brings us so many blessings and happiness. We have been so blessed to have been given commandments. It is easy to think of the commandments as restrictions, and that they hold us back from doing things that we enjoy. In reality though, we have the commandments as a guideline to help us achieve true, Godly happiness that can't be attained any other way. I know obedience brings blessings, and especially happiness.
I miss you all, have a great week
