Twelve Fast Sundays Left

Teaching James
(I love the boys in the tree)
Saturday Elder Meinzer and his companion had a baptism with four candidates:Ransford, Janet, james and Florence. James completed their mission goal.

Elder Meinzer and Elder Smith brought a CD to church to play before the meeting started so the members could learn the hymns and how to sing them correctly. He also had an unusual experience at church while they were having people raise their arms to sustain something. It was the first time in his life that Elder Meinzer opposed. They were trying to give James the Aaronic Priesthood, and Elder Meinzer was the only one who raised his arm when they asked if people were opposed. Standing up, he looked at the surprised face of the branch president and said, "He's ten." He thought it was a pretty cool experience. (So, Zach)

Agnes is a member that they told to stop selling on the Sabbath and she listened to them. One day last week she rushed up to them telling them that the next day all her bread sold in 5-10 minutes. The Lord truly blesses us when we keep His commandments. Sometimes Elder Meinzer thinks it is a little unfair though because we receive such large blessings for doing just little things.
