We had transfer calls on Saturday and found out that my companion and 1 of the elders in Cordele are being transferred. So its an exciting time.
Tuesday we had district meeting. One of the elders, who goes home in 3 weeks, gave a training on what he was going to do when he gets home.. oh boy.. haha. Romans . It was great.
After district meeting though, we had a great experience. we were driving back to the apartment, when we saw a gator we hadn't seen in awhile, so we flipped a u-turn and stopped and talked with him. apparently he had been kidnapped and assaulted by some white guys. We were shocked. so we then went by his apartment. We caught him. such a miracle. He let us in, and we talked... He was supposed to be somewhere a half hour earlier, but decided to stay home. He said, "God sure does work in mysterious ways."
Now some background on James Dodson. He is an older black gentlemen, who is practically homeless and washes windows on cars at a local gas station.. He is so humble. He hardly had anything in his apartment, too.. But as we talked, he spoke gently, but so powerful. he said how it must be gods will that this happened. that it is part of God's plan for him. He has no hard feelings against the men. Which is amazing! As we were leaving, he said come back as often as you can.. He is great. Now he just needs to gain a more solid testimony.
i sure am excited for this week! Thanksgiving in the South! Oh boy.. haha. Pecan pies all over the place! And Dad, you should be proud, i threw together one of those orange fruit salads! it was quite good!
That is cotton bales. So much money right there..
and then there is me and Bowen at the feast.. He is so funny.
I love you all!
