🙏🏼 The Lords Work In Cocoa Florida!! ☀️ Week 45!!

What's up family, things are going pretty good here in Cocoa Florida. This week went really fast and we were able to see a lot of people, as well as a lot of success. Stake Conference was really great. Things are going well and Me and Elder Fenn are out here enjoying every minute doing the work of the Lord! 

So this week I went on exchanges in Titusville with Elder Larsen, he's a pretty cool guy and we had a good day. We had a lesson with this crazy guy who is a member and in the previous lesson asked if the next time we could give him a lesson on the Book of Revelations in the Bible. So that morning, we were looking for something to present to him, and THAT BOOK IS IMPOSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND!! haha We shared the scripture mastery cause it's all we had. When we shared it with him and he just laughed and we were like What!?! Then he just said "I didn't think you guys would actually look for something to share that book is so complex only a prophet could understand it". Haha it was a good time though, He is a really good guy.

So on Wednesday I went on splits with a couple of men from our Ward, Brother Bruno and Brother Staples. We went and saw sister Morton and we had a really powerful lesson on sacrament and the importance of going to Church. We also were able to help her understand the Role of the Relief Society. It was really good and brother Staples was able to help her out a lot with some of her needs. She is awesome and I've been able to see the Growth of her Testimony in just 3 short Visits.

So Stake Conference was really good, the main thing they focused on was the opening of another Stake, Vero Beach Stake. So now there is a total of 8 stakes in our Mission. The church is GROWING. One thing that was really cool was during the Adult Session Saturday night. Sister Sherker from the Melbourne Ward, who took us out to eat a few times was talking and she shared an Experience where she was inactive in the church be cause her husband wasn't supportive of the church and wouldn't let her go. For years the Relief Society would always send her letters of the lessons each Month and she studied and enjoyed them. It's awesome to see how much the Relief Society made a difference in her life. Her husband has since passed and she has been able to return to church and go through the Temple and recently she was able to have her husbands Temple work done as well. She has also been able to be Sealed For time and all Eternity. I'm so happy for her she is so nice and cared a lot about the Missionaries. Also being able to see the Wilsons this weekend was exciting, I've missed them a lot, LOVE THE WILSONS!! 

Things are pretty good, We have Zone Conference this coming Thursday. We also have Regional Conference on Sunday which is a multiple Stake Conference. So looking forward to those. The Scripture I would like to share this week is 1st Corinthians 15:57-58; But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. This is a powerful scripture. We must always do our best to accomplish the Lords work. Love you all Have a Wonderful Week.
