The Cult

Hello Family and Friends:) So this week was really really exciting in terms of events but really boring in terms of the work. We are still trying to find more people to teach and that has led us to some interesting places and ideas. We have been working with the less active members mostly and that has been good except for everyone getting sick :( But we are doing our best and the ward is happy so that equals a success in my book! :) 

One of the days we went out to a little town about 30 miles out of Minot to try and meet a couple people. The town is called Max, and the houses don't have that was like really awesome in the whole tracking people down department, but the town was really cute:) then we punched in some addresses in the GPS and it took us 9 miles away from Max to a place that had one street of maybe like 10 houses and other buildings up on the hill. So we go to where the GPS said the address was and it looked really abandoned and there was a german shepard following our car and a random man walking up and down the street so we decided to leave. On our way out I went up the little hill to see what the other buildings were and as we approached it I saw a chain linked fence with barbed wire surrounding it on top and a gate to drive through. So once Sister Jarvies looked up and saw it too she was like "Turn Around!"  But  I had to find somewhere to turn around or she would have to get out and back me and she wasn't about to get out so we go through the fence and the spirit was gone instantly... It was the eeriest feeling ever and so we left very rapidly. But the best was as we drove down the hill Sister Jarvies was like "Hurry Get out of here before that man down there  calls the leader of this cult!!!" I just could not hold it together. I was laughing so hard that I was worried we wouldn't make it out alive:) Later we found out that it was the old place that they kept the minute men for the air force base and they didn't need it anymore so now people can live there. But I am pretty sure that we will just let them live there in peace. :)

Our week was a lot of tracting and finding so hopefully we can have some great stories for next week:) I love you all and hope you are all doing well:)
