Well this week was pretty good. Yesterday I gave a talk about discouragement and how to overcome it. I talked about the Israelites and how they wouldn't do the simple things to heal themselves of the fiery serpents (and yes dad I also used the Guinea Worm). I talked about how we must do the simple things and fight like dragons (Mosiah 20:11) against the things that are pulling us down.We worked on a Recent Convert's sons house this week. He is not a member but we and another member were over there helping him. We had to rip our the floor to the foundation and clean out the rat poop, fill in holes with concrete and begin laying the floor once again. Afterwards we went back to Ralph and Flo's house (the recent converts) and had dinner. Malia the 2 year old girl, who talks really well loves us, but she didn't recognize us in normal clothes. When Hooton tried to pick her up she scream "Mommy! Save me!" it was hilarious.
(The following is a p.s. e-mail sent about 10 minutes after the first.)
Also I have been really blessed in the past because Hopi food is very bland. I also see giant ravens all over the place. Well anyway...
