New year's and transfers. And an earth quake (Jan 4 2016)

No I did manage to finish the Book of Mormon cover to cover on New Year's.   We all started 6:00 pm on New Year's Eve and I finished on the Second of January at 9:16 Elder Van Dyke finished about an hour after with Elder Driggs finishing a few hours later.   The Isaiah chapters were the hardest part for all of us while we were just
zipping through the war chapters.   I found a ton of interesting verses that I will work on ponderizing.  I found the scripture reference that says that only men measure time.  I knew it was on there somewhere I just could not find it.   The verse means that it really does not matter how long it took for the earth to be made.

The earth quake happened on Tuesday at 5:30 pm.  We were at a member's home having dinner when just everything started to shake.   It lasted for about half a minute, but I liked it.   We, the elders, just kept eating and enjoying the ride.  Sister Milton made sure to get out from behind the two cabinets that were about 400 pounds each.  

One other thing happened yesterday when we were looking for potential investigators.   We went to a house that said an Ivan lived there, however, a very active family lived there.  They did not even know the person that it said lived there.   Besides that, We had a lesson with one of our investigators, Peggy, and we had two members there with us.  

Also, Elder Driggs bought pepper spray and now we have video of Elder Driggs and Elder Cook being sprayed in face with it.  Apparently it hurts?!
