Week 67- What Just Happened?

Friends and Family,
This week just flew by! I can't believe how quick it went. It seemed like yesterday we had pday. It was a good week. We are still working with some great investigators and constantly getting referrals and other people to contact. It's awesome! 
I went on exchanges with Elder Curtis down in Denham Springs this week. We had dinner with an awesome family. We tracted a little, and we saw a less active who finally committed to come back to church. He was really excited about it too. It was neat.
While we were teaching Joe one of the days this week, his roomate sat away from us, despite us inviting him over. But by the end, he came over and was fully involved, sharing his opinion and quoting a bunch of scripture. He's a really nice guy. You could see how happy he was by the end of the lesson. He shared a scripture from psalms to tell us goodbye. He was very grateful for our service and he felt the Spirit. He even read a chapter of the Book of Mormon right there on the spot. haha. It was really neat.
Brother Landry is doing good. Elder Goodsell watched the Restoration video with him while on exchanges, and he said he believed Joseph Smith was a prophet. He said how can he not be. He compared his persecution to that of Christ's because they stood up for what they believed in. Let us all stand up for what we believe in. We are all representatives of Christ. How great is that calling.
Love y'all. I'm enjoying it in this area. I love administering to those affected by the flood. It's neat to be able to help them have hope. Always look for opportunity to lift those who are under heavy burdens.
-Elder Chandler Allen
