SQUAAAA August 8, 2016

Dear Family,

     We have been trying to meet a lot of our members lately. It's been pretty interesting, it's fun to get to know the members better. We are doing this because we are trying to get our members to do missionary work. After talking to them, we found out that they actually have been working with people and their friends. It was really awesome to find that out because now we can help them with their missionary work, that is the goal anyway. We used to tract a little bit. Well, we didn't really do it until lately because we didn't have any one to go by. But then our Mission President came out and said that we need to stop tracting, it's not effective. There is a better way and the Prophets and Apostles have told us it's through the members. So, it was a slap in the face but a good one. So far it seems good.
        We ran into an "intellectual black man", his words not ours. He called us over while we were biking by and he was all like "hey man, you guys are great". This guy loves Mormons and Utah. He was going on and on about it. He's not Mormon but he says that he is "Mormon-ish". He gave us like a pump up talk about how awesome we were. It was pretty nice actually. But the best thing he said was at the end. He said " you know when people reject your message, just tell them this - you know we talked to an intellectual black man once and you might not convert and you might not read our scriptures and stuff but you might want to consider being Mormon-ish" " hahaha" and then he just walked off. It was pretty funny, he was a super cool guy, we don't know his name but we hope to find him later. He's married to a member so we are hoping to find him that way.
        The Harry Potter thing is pretty cool.
Love you guys
Stay awesome 
Elder Richards
