Last week's update(Feb. 22, 2010) was VERY short - Elder Edgell was heading to a baptism so didn't have time to say much. He ended with something about he and his companion almost getting arrested and would tell the rest of the story later.
Here is his update from yesterday, March 1st, and a couple photos from baptism of Sidney Sandstrom (the little boy from entry Feb. 16th)
"Before I forget I will finish my almost getting arrested story...So we were knocking on doors a couple weeks ago, and of course this was the first door we knocked on. So the guy answered the door, and we introduced ourselves as missionaries and were about to ask him a question. By the way he did not look happy at all. Before we knew it he told us we were soliciting and then we told him we weren't, and then he said in a real loud voice almost yelling at us, YES YOU ARE! As he said it he reached toward his back pocket and pulled out a nice shinny star (he was a sheriff, not friendly) right in front of my face. I stood my ground, and was about to say again we are not soliciting, and what we have is free...right when I was about to say it he said..any more questions...I stood there for about a minute with his nice shinny star in front of my face and looked at my companion, and he said no...I was going to stay but I guess it’s a good thing we didn't, because we probably would have gotten arrested if we did stay on his doorstep. So that’s the story of me almost getting arrested, pretty exciting...Sorry I left my email at that last week, I thought I would leave yall hangin till this week
