Elder Gibson Turned a Year

Elder Meinzer and Elder Gibson did a little celebrating of his year mark. They made french toast at a member's house. "It was quite tasty." Then they got together with two elders from Elder Gibson's MTC group and their companions, plus a bunch of other missionaries and had steak. They bought 10 pounds of steak and marinated it over the weekend. They made a makeshift stove by propping up some cinderblocks and then putting charcoal underneath with a little grill on top. The meat was chewy but it tasted good. They had leftover meat so they made kebobs with pineapple and onions.

Enjoying their BBQ

They have been meeting with a girl named Dinah. She has a great memory and can basically recite things that she read in the Book of Mormon or the pamphlets they give her. She has come to church the last few weeks.

Charles is 21 years old and has come to church the past two weeks. He asked them what he needs to do to be baptized and they told him to keep doing what he is doing. "Yet another person prepared by the Lord."

The Lord has definitely blessed them as they have worked hard. They had five investigators come to church on Sunday.
