Week 20, Kyle, Tie Burning and Fishermen!

Hey, We had a sweet opportunity to go to Nederland, Colorado this week. Nederland is about 30 minutes west of Boulder up in the mountains (8300 ft about sea level). Missionaries in Boulder technically cover Nederland but because of miles they can only get up there once a month. So we went with them to help them get some more work done, We tracted out a couple of apartment complexes and we talked to some interesting people. I guess Nederland is one of the fist places in the U.S.A to legalize marijuana so there are a lot of hippies. We talked to some Rastafarian and he kept trying to sell us some natural drink, We talked to him about religion and he said if he would join a religion it would be the mormons (he didn't know that we were mormons) So we explained to him that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the same as Mormons. Kyle came to church again he is usually there before anyone else. It is so awesome to hear his comments in gospel principles and how he is progressing, he met with the bishop and we had a prayer with him and the bishop in his office it was such a great experience. It was Elder Hollidays year mark on Friday so we burned his tie and his shirt. We found a new way to street contact this week too! So there is a reservoir in our area so we spent an evening just going around talked to people who are fishing, It is legit because people can't run away from us. We handed out a couple of Book of Mormons and had a lot of good conversations. We talked with one guy who was from Beijing and he was impressed with my Chinese. It was a very good week this week.
