Klammath Falls - Week 19

Hola Madre,

This week was just packed with awesomeness!!!

Last P-day we played basketball like always then went to Sister Bennett's place and played some pool.  Pool is so much fun.  I smash everyone.  That Billiards class is paying off.  Sister Bennett also has a huge clothing section in her store with Suits and hats and what not.  So we put on some sweet stuff and took some awesome pics.  We look like a Mafia.  Mormon Mafia!  Sister Bennett also loves me so she gave me this sweet vintage falcon tie.  So cool!

Got kicked out of my millionth apartment complex haha.  Met my first Atheist there.  That was an interesting conversation.  I don't get how people could be Atheist.  (He said the managers come out and tell them not to come back and bother their tenants.  Makes me a bit sad, but I guess it comes with the territory and Kevin is obviously used to it by now.)

The members really liked H. and he really enjoys church which is super awesome.  He has come a long way which is really cool to see.

We had an apartment inspection by some members who are in charge of that.  So we had to deep clean our apartment haha.  They said they've never seen this apartment that clean before.  The other elders didn't do a good job on that.  What was cool was the members were from Monterey.  Their last name is Meeks.  They are older.  Probably 50's or so.  He use to be stationed at Fort Ord so we were talking about all that for a long time.  That was super awesome.

So it finally started raining which is good.  It's also cooling down.  I love the colder weather!

So we had a competition in our mission.  Whatever zone had the cleanest car at zone conference would get a pizza party.  My zone won so we had some bomb pizza.  

So this week the Home town high schools faced each other in football.  KU Vs. Mazama.  We went for about 40 mins which was awesome.  Presidente Coffman is a teacher at KU so he got us in.  It was cool to watch a football game again.  The high school football here is not as good as home.  They are all tiny guys.  It was a huge game though.  The whole town was there.

Had another Saturday working at the Galindos building their fortress fence.  It's huge.  It's fun to help out though.

So we found out we actually have a neighbor upstairs which we thought was empty.  His name is K. and he is from Texas.  He's just here for a couple weeks.  His bike tire was flat so he asked us if we had an extra tube which we didn't but I patched it up for him and it worked.  We started talking about the church and he asked for a Book of Mormon which was awesome.  So we gave him one and he said he would read it.  Miracle!


So on Sunday it was A.'s birthday.  One of the Galindos kids.  They had a small bday dinner which no one showed up so I'm glad we were there.  We made it a blast for him.  It was his sixth bday.  We had some good food and a cool piƱata!  Super fun!

I read this scripture in studies this week.

 12 For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--

13 Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--

14 These should then be attended to with great earnestness.
D&C 123:12-14

It's our duty as members of this church to share this Gospel with other who are in the darkness and know not where to find the truth.  We can bring them out of the darkness and into the light.

Thanks for everything!

I love you guys!

Hope you have an amazing week!

Love,
Elder Perrine
