Hey Everyone,
This week was pretty good, we had Zone Conference on Tuesday and it went really well. We also were able to help a lot of people this week and bring them closer to their savior. This week we also did a lot of searching to try and get those select people that have faith and are prepared to receive the restored gospel. Sometimes it's hard to have faith when searching  because there's a lot of people that just reject and don't care or want to hear what you have to say. It also can be very frustrating because you know how much you can bless and will bless their lives if they just accept and listen.

This Tuesday when we had zone conference it went really well, there were some things that were said by the trainings that were given that really stuck out to me. Sister Berry when she was giving her training she first focused on cherishing mothers. It had been the three-year mark since her mother past away, It really got me thinking and realizing how blessed I am to have the mother that I have and how thankful I am for the support and the love that she show's me. She also focused on how decisions determine destiny. Decisions bridge the gap of what we know and what we do. She also said don't put the keys of your happiness in someone else's pocket. I realized how much even the little things can change our happiness and future and how we all need to be striving to do our best to make the right decisions.

A miracle that happened this week was a guy that we've been working with for over eight weeks in our ward has had a lot of ups and downs in just two months, he's had a lot of struggles with addiction to things that hold him back from doing the things that are heavenly father want us to do. But it is so cool because he's decided that he doesn't want to do any of those things and he wants to be closer to the Savior and heavenly father and come back to church and to bless the sacrament again so it's been a really good getting to know him and helping him change and know what he needs to do to. He has become a good friend and I have loved seeing him change his life.

Another really cool thing that happened this week, is we weren't really sure what to do and where to go so we all said a prayer and we decided to go visit this random girl who we just thought about in our area book. She was so happy to See us and she has been stressed out of her mind and she can't think straight. It was so nice just to go over to her house and to be able to help her with anything that she needed and to be able to give her a lesson that Heavenly Father and the savior are always with us at all times so we are never alone in times of struggle and in times of need. Really cool to help someone out even if she wasn't interested in coming to church or being baptized it was still awesome to help someone out and make someone feel good.

It was a really good week and I got to see how the gospel once again helps so many lives, I'm truly BLESSED to be doing what I'm doing every day and enjoying every second of it the scripture I like to share with you guys this week is Alma 12:24 .....therefore this life became a probationary state; a time to prepare to meet God; a time to prepare for that endless state which has been spoken of by us, which is after the resurrection of the dead. This is such a good scripture and I know that this is the time to prepare to meet God and that's why we need to be making good decisions that bring us closer to thee. Anyways Love you all have a great week.
