The Trail Less Traveled

Dear Mom and Den,

Ha Ha!  Sounds like things are great at home...lots of good stuff going on!  I did get Tanner's letter and am working on sending him one back.  Conference was spectacular!  The favorite of my mission!  We watched it at the Stake Center.  There's something really amazing about watching conference at the stake center.  Sure it's a little more work, and you have to get all dressed up, but I really enjoy watching it there.  Who knows, might even do that at home.  It's crazy that Nicki's letter is that long!  Geeze!  I'll probably be home by the time she finishes it!

Elder Warnick and I had an amazing experience this weekend.  When we went out to tract, we found a trail that we had never before noticed, so we decided to walk down it. It was a beautiful trail.  As we continued down, we saw a man sitting on a bench and we started to talk to him.  He told us his story and all the things he had been through.  We then were able to share how the gospel of Jesus Christ could bless his life and we invited him to read and pray about the Book of Mormon.  Before we could even get to it, he asked us if we could pray with him.  Then immediately after the prayer he asked if we had a church service he could attend with us.  Unfortunately, he couldn't make it to conference, but we plan on meeting with him again this week.

So that was our awesome week in a nutshell.  I love you guys and miss ya tons!

Love, Elder Lance Ririe
