Miracles, Pocahontas, and Hairy Pigs

Well our investigators who were all having a hard time are back. they are no longer drinking and the other is our of Jail. We are trying to see them more and more but the adversary is working hard and trying to make them doubt.
This week we were in a gas station when the cashier asked us if we have any pamphlets that we give out. Naturally we said yes and that we would be right back. She in turn left the register followed us out to our truck and then we gave her a restoration and a Plan of Salvation pamphlet as well as a Book of Mormon. She seemed really excited and we can't wait to see her again. Little miracles from working like the Lord wants and talking to everyone that we see.

Polacca, Arizona 

Here is a funny thing when we teach about the restoration we have a lot of  natives forget Joseph Smith's name and they all call him John Smith. No this isn't a big difference but it always makes me thing about Pocahontas. I shouldn't laugh but I do.
We went to the Hopi High football game on Friday. Let's just say that they could use some coaching and some work in the weight room. They lost 0-56 and didn't hold Red Mesa to 4 downs ever. Every possession Red Mesa scored. It was painful to watch.
We ate a pig this week. Bro. Crowfoot had a freshly butchered pig (there was still some hair on it) from his inlaws when we went over to eat on Wednesday. The pig's name was Kevin (like Kevin Bacon) and was the best pig I've ever tasted. Food is interesting on a mission you think you won't eat well but everytime you go to someones house for a meal they say "I bet you never get to eat steak' or "ribs". Let's just say I've had ribs 5 times in the past 2 weeks. I never thought that I would be tired of them.
Here is this week's miracle. We got tied up in K-town because it took us an hour to get out the door of one guys house because he likes to talk (really he does we didn't get a word in for an hour). Well because of this we were an hour late to an appointment and missed the man we were going to go see, but because we were late we got to talk to the baby sitter. The same girl who we taught a couple of weeks ago and didn't get her name or address. Now we were able to find her, teach her again, and set up another appointment to go to her house. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Oh I'm also serving with and Elder Christensen in my district now. He is from Boise and graduated from Borah. He also knows the Hainsworths really well., It was fun to talk about home with someone.

Well that's it from Hopi this week. I love you all!
