September 18, 2016 - Elmo is STUD!

First off I want to give a shoutout to my trainer and my last companion Elder Lords who got engaged this week! Less than 2 months, settin a high bar. Atta boy. 
Elder lords came back to visit and baptize Kay!

Second off let me just reemphasize: Elmo is a STUD. So he's the man last week, who I wrote about, that our Ward Mission Leader brought to Kay's baptism then church. He came to church again today, loved it. We gave him a reading assignment on Thursday for 2 Nephi 31 for our appointment tonight, he's read it 3 times so that he could know it super well for the lesson. Today in church we showed him Ezekiel 17:16-17 where it talks about the stick of Judah and the stick of Joseph becoming one in our hands. Right as soon as he finished reading it before we could even explain what a "stick" was or anything, he grabbed his quad that a member gave him and said "Boom,I got it right here, here's the one stick! That's so dope!" (Yes mom he uses the word dope all the time, and Sister Katzenbach told him it was ok :) 

Elmo is so prepared it's amazing. Today in Elders' Quorum, the lesson was mainly on FHE. When they asked for experiences of FHE that had helped people in their lives Elmo was the first to raise his hand and talk about how when he was little his mom set aside 1 night a week (Wednesday) to have bible study together as a family and play a board game (and she would apply the bible scriptures to the board game, like honesty and charity in Monopoly) Then he said "I know it's not the same as in this church because ours was on Wednesdays and we didn't have the Book of Mormon, but the principle is true, we bond with our family as we spend time with them learning the gospel."

This guy needs to be baptized!!!

 Well, anything I share after that will just be boring, so I'll leave at that for this week. Hope you're all doing great love you all!

Alma 27:27 And they were among the people of Nephi, and also numbered among the people who wereof the church of God. And they were also distinguished for their zeal towards Godand 
also towards men; for they were perfectly honest and upright in all things; and they were firm in 
the faith of Christ,  even unto the end.

Have a zeal for the gospel like Elmo!
