HEY FROM FLORIDA 5/04/15 Week 9

Hey everyone, this has been a pretty good week. I went on an exchange with one of the Zone Leaders Elder LefHoltz on Tuesday, he is from Georgia so he only lives 5 hours away. He is a way cool guy. We went and saw N.  again haha and taught him about the blessings of the temple. We also went and taught there investigator A. , the restoration. A.  is an interesting guy. For dinner, I tried for the first time Haitian food, it smelt like dog poop haha but actually tasted pretty good. Cause we kinda have to eat all the food that our members give us haha. Later we went and taught a mother and her son the importance of the sacrament. And how we can truly think about what our savior has done for us. It was a great day in Viera.

We met with one of our Less Actives Z. L. , and things have really been going good with her and we are really excited for her and we are seeing more and more of a desire to have the gospel In her life. We taught a lesson on faith and how if we have faith we need to act upon it to show love for our Heavenly Father and as we pray, read and go to church we are showing acts of faith and she is showing more and more Faith everyday.

Me and Elder Weiss went to Texas Roadhouse for the last time with the V's. cause they are going back to Utah for the summer. So we are going to miss one of our favorite members. One thing we were able to do with a couple in our Ward Brother and Sister F. We got them out to a lesson with brother and sister B., but the B's. were leaving when we got there. So we just introduced the f.'S to the B's and we were able to start that fellowship, hopefully we can meet with them this next week.

Another thing we had going good this week is we met with the K. Family. They are the brazilian family. We just talked about the church and some things we believe in for like an hour and Brother K. said, I'm willing to talk to you guys and get to know you but I'm really not interested in changing from being a catholic. So we testified to him the Book of Mormon and the spirit was so strong and it changed his desire when we invited him to read and know if it is true. So he accepted our simple invitation to read from the Book of Mormon. We are really excited for them and we can't wait to see them progress 

The scripture I want to leave with you guys this week is about having faith, cause our faith In the people that we find has been tested this past couple of weeks.  It is in Ether 12:6, 6 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith. So as we show our faith in the people that we find we will see miracles. So we are excited and looking forward to this next week. And I hope all of you guys have a great week love and miss you all.

Elder Gentry
