Elder Dodd's Six Month Celebration

Elder Dodd and Elder Meinzer met with Isaac and he told them that he knows the church is true. Apparently, he has gone to over sixteen churches but hasn't been satisfied with any of them and said that none of them were good. But, when he came to our church, he noticed something different and knew that it was true.

Every Saturday they go and visit Joseph. Their visits always boost Elder Meinzer's spirits because he loves meeting with him. They always have a good time and laugh a lot. Before visiting with Joseph last week, they went to Emmanuel's house and did some wash for his wife for an hour and a half. He has never washed so many clothes in his life. She really appreciate it!

Gilbert told them a story about how a pastor for another church tried to confuse Gilbert about the church and cause him to question his faith. He told his wife, "They cannot confuse us because of what we know to be true." That made Elder Meinzer so happy. He loves that family!

Elder Dodd celebrated his six month mark so they ordered two containers of groundnut past each and bought 5 liters of vanilla ice cream. They split the ice cream and mixed in the groundnut paste so it tastes just like peanut butter ice cream.

It's crazy for Elder Meinzer to think that this time last year he got his mission call.
