This week we had the opportunity to have a mini-missionary with us; my second cousin no less. He had to remind me of that fact when we first met.The first day with Matthew went pretty much down the tubes. He borrowed a bike from his friend that was a piece of junk. The pedal fell of twice, and the back tire was bent so that it ran along the brake the whole time. He also tore his shirt pretty bad on a gate. (Which was my fault, I guess. If you want to know more, just ask him.)
I am extremely grateful to have served in the Rocklin 2nd ward, where the ward council is amazing, the members are so helpful, and everyone eagerly welcomes a homeless man into church.
