The tale of the Headless Dog on Buckeye!‏

Well there has defiantly been some challenges this week but Elder Prince and I have been working through them. I really love this area and the goodness of the members and the people within it. Most of our work has been with Less Actives(LA's) this week due to some issues with Investigators. The miracles that have been happening with the LA's have been awesome though. Elder Prince and I have been working with a Sis. Burgess and she has come to church 2 weeks in a row which is just incredible. She's really been applying God into her life. The other LA's we've mostly been working with reading comprehension with them and seeking the spirit to help them understand.
Pam has kind of disappeared. Her phone doesn't work anymore, because she can't afford the bill, so we can't get a hold of her. When we stopped by for an appointment she wasn't there so we left a note and every time we have gone back to see her again the note is still there. Hopefully we find her again and figure out a way to mend any situations she's been going through.
Ben is doing great. He's still progressing however he can't come to church because of work. He talked to his boss and his boss said he needed him to work Sunday's because all the other workers have been promised that they won't have to work Sunday. So we've invited him to plenty of church activities and we're gonna do our best to get him there. Looks like general conference will be the first time we get him to church.
We weren't able to meet with Leonard this week but he is doing very well. He came to church Sunday and we are gonna help him through some issues to prepare him for baptism.
On another funny but kind of gross note so don't read this paragraph if you don't like being grossed out and sickened sorta. While we were biking to church on Sunday morning we took a different route so we could see if Pam could come. Well while we were going a long I saw something weird just laying on the opposite of the road side of the sidewalk. It was hairy and as I looked at it and got closer I smelt something absolutely terrible and the smell got way bad when I passed it. I realized it was a dead dog. It was dead because it had no head. Which was not to be seen anywhere near by. Elder Prince and I are pretty sure somebody like macheted this dog's head and left the body because it didn't really look like it was hit by a car. So that was the highlight of the day/week.
I was also able to stand in the circle for the confirmation of the Holy Ghost for one of the ZL's baptisms. His name is LaShaun and he's pretty much awesome.
Well I love you all.
