Hey everyone this week was a pretty good week we were able to see a lot of success and get a lot done. We were able to see our investigator Karla that we have been focusing on and helping her progress towards the waters of baptism. Me and Elder Stiggins are bros and we're having fun and were killin it here in Minneola, These Bless-ed Hills aren't getting any easier to bike and I swear they are getting steeper and steeper haha. So glad we have the car hah.

Anyways we had a really good lesson with Karla, One day me and stiggs we're just chilling at the clubhouse and she walked up to us and started talking to us about her faith in Jesus Christ and About how she keeps running into those dang Mormons haha. So technically she found us hah Will take it. So later on in the week we sat down and had a lesson with her about The Rrestoration, and she just loved everything we had to say. During the middle of the Lesson I was thinking about a date that she could be baptized, I was thinking the 28th, so I was going to bring it up at the end of the lesson. Well Elder Stiggins just goes for it and asks if she would like to be baptized and if she will set a date for The 28th, it just so happened to be that she will have her birthday on the 28th, #inspired haha it was a pretty cool experience and she wants to be baptized on That day more than anything. She does have some obstacles to overcome her but I know that through Jesus Christ she can.

Another cool thing that happened this week is we were able to get a Less Active that I have been working with for like 3 months back to church, she hasn't been in like 5 years so it was pretty cool, in the words of Gordon B. Hinckley, we need to take care of the Members we have before the Lord will trust us with bringing more to the church, so it was way cool to see her at church me and Elder Stiggs were Pumped haha

Something I wanted to share from a documentary that I saw this week It is called the 5000 day project and it shows the life of four brothers. I got to see the part that talked about the second brother and his name is Luke. He served his mission over in Cambodia and showed how hard and difficult it was serving there. He ended up getting and tapeworm inside of him and he had to take pills for it and also he was very hungry. It was the end of the week and him and his companion ran out of food and it was Sunday so they couldn't buy anything. He said that he was so hungry that he was miserable. On Monday him and his companion went and bought some rice and he was so happy to be able to eat that rice but when he got it, he saw a six year old boy in the streets and he looked at him and he thought to himself, "I wonder if he ever went to bed hungry. I wonder how many nights he didn't know if he was going to get a meal." What Luke ended up doing was giving that little boy the rice and he said the little boy ate it so fast because he was so hungry. What I really liked though was when he said "I will never know what these  people go through, but the savior does."

Well there goes another week and I'm still doing awesome, the scripture I would like to share with you guys this week is Alma 7: 11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. 12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities. I really like this scripture a lot it shows that we might not know what people are going through but the Savior does. Love you all have have a good week.
