The Blessing- Week 38

What a week! We sure were busy this week and had an incredible time in what we found out is our last full week together. Transfers are on Wednesday and I will be welcoming with open arms my new companion, Elder Santana. I sure do love and appreciate Elder Morton and all that he has done for me. It makes all the world's difference to be able to serve with your best friends. I am grateful to have had such great friendships in all of my companionships and look forward to yet another!

Roxbert has been a little shy to pass the Sacrament since he received the Priesthood but yesterday we finally got both of the boys (Roxbert and Micrain) to get up there and pass and what a joyous occasion that was for me. Those boys and that family make me so happy!

We had set up two church tours for Saturday night at 6:00 and 7:00. Albert was the first and we had set it up to have dinner with him at the church before the tour and the lesson. At about 6:30, as we were pacing the street outside looking for Albert, we received a text that said "jail". Uhhh? He never responded after that. At about 6:45, Logan texted us and said she had been throwing up since she got off work. So, both appointments fell through unfortunately and we resolved to go to the jail and look for Albert on the way in hopes that maybe he had just been walking passed the jail on the way to the church. We get there and ask the cop if he was inside and it turns out he was! They got him for possession of Marijuana... I hate that filthy stuff. Anyways, he is a great guy and we hope he is doing good. They were saying he had to stay over night but he would see a judge the next morning and be released but we haven't heard from him since. Crazy stories! 

Life is great, we are blessed, and God is good.

Keep the faith,
Elder Ricks
