It Was The Best Of Times, It Was The Worst Of Times

Hello, everybody! This week definitely had some wonderful things in it! It also snowed last night and we were tromping around in slush all night trying to find people to teach, like Lewis and Clark playing freeze tag with Sacajawea in a swamp.
Cameron was baptized this week, so we are all very excited. When we asked him who he wanted to baptize him, he started doing something similar to "Eenie Meenie Minie Moe", only he said "Boy Scout, You're Out!" and gradually eliminated candidates until he was only left with one. That is how I ended up baptizing Cameron. He is a very quiet and sober child. He listens very well, but he doesn't speak up much. This makes it very easy to teach him, but it's also weird because he almost never asks questions or comments on anything.
We have also become good friends with a crazy homeless lady named Janie. She is funny and always drunk and roaming the streets. She is hilarious. 
The only sad part of the week is that we are all sick. Elder Budge got sick first and now all 4 of us are very sick (except Elder Budge is basically better now). It's okay, though, because we aren't crippled and we still go out and work every day. The work is doing wonderfully here, and a few sniffles and aches aren't going to stop that.
I love the ward here. They are awesome. I have come rather close to quite a few members here.
Our recent convert, Rose, is still very faithful, but her family has been very anti and she is having a lot of health issues, so please pray for her.
I know that this work is true. I know that God loves each one of us. I know that the power of the priesthood is real. I feel it each time I give or participate in a blessing. The priesthood has been restored, dear friends. God speaks to man on earth. So, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Farewell.

Elder Benge
