🙌🏻Blessings on Blessings on Blessings🙇🏼 week #50 wow😱

Hey everyone, my week was good, hope all of you guys had a wonderful week and were able to enjoy ❤️Valentine's Day.❤️ It's already the end of week one of the transfer. This week we had struggles meeting with some of our investigators and found out that one that we have been teaching is moving so that's a bummer. Overall it was a good week and Elder Fenn and I got work done! 

Here is a cool little story that happened this week with this Less Active we were able to see. We have had trouble meeting with her, and I have only met with her once before, (that was the first week that I was here.) So we taught her on Tuesday and had a great lesson on the importance of Scriptures, Prayer, and going to Church. She shared with us news that she just got out of the Hospital because her Blood pressure was super high, like scary high. They doubled her medicine and she felt fine. On Friday night we received a call at like 11:00pm, and she was asking if we could come over and give her a blessing. Unfortunately it was way past our curfew, so we called up a member and he was able to take care of it. We went to see her the next day and she was doing really well. She said it was the first time that she had received a blessing and that she was thankful for it. We are so happy that we were able to see her earlier this week, and that we were able to let her know that we were there for her if she needed any help, and that's exactly what she did. We are happy to have been able to get her the help that she needed.

We had Z.T.M. this week, it was ok. It was good to see some mission homies that I don't see often. There were some good things said that can help us in our area. 

We had a ok first lesson with that family that we helped move-in a couple of weeks ago, it could have gone better but it happens. We taught the restoration and were able to bring a member out with us to the lesson. It started of shaky but Sister Bruno was able to bring things under control and it turned out to be a great lesson, at first we felt like she was backing us up into a corner with all these ?????? haha. she probably would have had we not brought our member that related with her super well. We made it through tho and they agreed to read The Book of Mormon and to Pray about it. We shared with her that the things we teach won't tell her whether the church is true or not, that is the Holy Ghost. 

We have been given the priesthood of God, the power of God restored to earth by holy angels. When a man uses the priesthood “by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned”, he can do many wonderful things, When a man holds the Melchizedek Priesthood, he can share these blessings by administering to the sick and giving special priesthood blessings. These special priesthood blessings can help us and bless us in all that we do. 

This week was pretty good, Elder Fenn and I are still doing great here in Cocoa!! we were able to see a lot of people, we had a couple of Priesthood Blessings to give. They always go good, the spirit always directs us on what to say and I'm thankful for the priesthood power and the opportunity we have to bless others. The scripture I would like to share this week is James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. I'm thankful for the Authority to act in Gods name, and that is has been restored to earth to further the Lords work. Hope you all have a good week!! Love ya

Elder Gentry
