Sept 19, 2011

First of all, the important things. There is a member here in Payson, who owns his own snow cone shop. He gives free snow cones to the missionaries. Now, this snow cone man also has a massive snow cone challenge that nobody has ever finished. It's a 72 ounce snow cone, that you have to eat in 10 minutes. If you finish it, it's free and you get to rename the challenge, and if you don't finish it, it's $7 (or $3.50 for missionaries). I'm thinking about trying to do that as soon as I'm done writing this email. Also, it's pretty exciting, because he layers the entire thing. You get to choose 4 flavors, and he gets to choose the other 2. It's a nice warm day, so hopefully it'll go right down.
Besides that, this week has been pretty incredible. There's some pretty incredible stuff going on here in Payson, and I'd love to say it all right now, but I think I'm going to wait to see how everything comes out and then tell the whole story. Suffice it to say that there is a family here that is turning their lives around completely, starting to come back to church, and they're planning on getting sealed in the temple and working their way towards that. I really hope that they can accomplish that goal before I finish my mission in a year from now. That would be incredible to be there as a missionary!
Besides that, we've got another guy who just randomly showed up to church a couple weeks ago, and we asked him if we could go over to his house and talk to him a little bit more about what we believe, and he said he needed to think about it. When he left, I thought that would be that last time we'd see him, but the next sunday he came back to church, and yesterday he showed up again! We went up and talked to him just a little bit more, and found out that going to his house to teach him would probably not be the best idea. I think the people that live with him in that house are not very open to the members of the church. We told him that we could teach him there in the chapel, and he said that would be awesome! We've got an appointment with him this week.
Another experience, we were eating at a mexican restaurant for dinner one evening (The owners are members and invited us to go eat with them). Anyways, we were there eating, and then this lady walks up and basically tells us that she just moved back to Payson from California, and she wants to meet with us. 
Unfortunately, that's all I have time for this week.
Have a great week!
Love to all
Elder Williams
