April 2, 2013

Hi Mom,

I am glad to hear that your Easter was good! Mine was also very nice. We forgot it was Easter until people at church said "Happy Easter" to us. Elder Pendergast and I wore matching ties and gave a missionary presentation to the whole ward during third hour. The ward liked that we had matching ties on. They liked the presentation too, now we just need to continue to implement it. 

We started teaching a couple new people this week, a 24 year old Hispanic man who wants to learn more about the Savior (The Book of Mormon is perfect for that), an agnostic 40 year old who has 2 Emmys (Humility would be perfect for him), and a 24 year old marine who is married to a member of the church that is about to have their second baby (Diapers are going to be perfect for them) 

The 3 amigos came to church and enjoyed the Easter messages. 

-We met a homeless guy who said that he was "The Beast", from Revelation and that he had died before, but was now alive and just waiting for 3 more years until Jesus comes again and turns America into dust and gives him the world. "The Beast" had this really funny laugh, and I don't know how to type it out because on paper it looks like: "haha", but it sounds really funny! Elder Pendergast and I laugh like that now when ever we talk about him.
-On Easter there was a Hispanic man sitting on some stairs, so I started talking to him in Spanish (This is always dangerous, because my Spanish isn't too good yet and Elder Pendergast doesn't know any). We said Happy Easter and he said, yeah, you too. He was drinking beer and we asked how he was doing and he said pretty good and then showed us his beer and we told him that water is better then beer because it gets rid of headaches. So he said that water is definitely better than beer, but he likes beer. So we asked if he had ever heard of the Book of Mormon before and he said probably, but I don't remember, because I always drink beer. That was pretty funny, and then we asked if we could help him with anything and he told us to throw his beer away, so we took his can and threw it away. 

Missionary work is great. I know that we have living prophets on the earth today and have the opportunity to hear them this weekend. I hope that all is well with you and I will talk to you next week!

-Elder Chandler
