This past week was pretty good. We baptized Axel. He was so excited. Really enjoyed it. He also bore his testimony in church the next day. Rock solid dude. Saturday night we went to a spanish family to meet a bunch of them and really talk. I think my spanish is slowly getting better. Improving little by little. We also got to meet some of Axel's family which was neat. I can say that I went to Miami on my mission. There is a small town in our area called Miami. A whopping population of 160.....probably includes animals. They even have a "beach" or the banks of the Missouri river. We also met this super crazy guy at McDonalds. I've noticed that wearing a namebadge automatically qualifies us to always be approached, sometimes that is awesome and we have an opportunity to share the gospel, others just have a really good story to tell. This I feel is just a really good story to tell. At McDonalds with some other missionaries after a meeting, this older gentleman came up to us and started going off on these conspiracy theories. He claims that the Zodiac killer, Anthrax guy, and unibomber are all the same person and he hasn't been caught and lives in Marshall. He also told us about some confederate union stuff and they have a hidden tunnel under some farmers plot filled with guns and ammo ready for another rebellion and civil war. He handed us some little notecards with his name and title of a book he wrote and everything. Dude said that McDonalds was his church and he was the preacher and thought that everyone should go to church 3 times a day. Gave us a good laugh. Gotta love the people in this area. Tracting is the best. That is when you really get the good stories. Well besides Axel, and the crazy guy at Mcdonalds, nothing huge happened.
Thanks for the Love and support,
Elder Roe
