Hey everyone, This week was pretty good. Can't believe we are now entering week 6 of this transfer, these transfers go by quick, REAL QUICK. We will receive the phone call next Saturday on what's happening. My guess is that Elder Fenn and I are going to stay together for another transfer... But anything can happen so we will see. We had a lot of good things happen this week.
I had a good exchange with Elder Larsen, we were finding like all day and finding can be a real struggle but we made it through, we also were able to teach our investigator which went really well. We were able to help him better understand the role and the importance of the Holy Ghost, and also being able to recognize the comfort and peace that comes from the Holy Ghost.
Are lesson with our investigator Tracy was good, He has been taught by Missionaries in the past and has come to church a few times, he loves everything about the church and wants to keep learning more. We taught him the Restoration and we invited him to be baptized and he said yes, We set a date for him to be baptized on March 12th, He has such a strong desire to come closer to the Lord, He wants to be baptized very badly. The only struggle with him is being able to meet with him cause he has a crazy work schedule but we will figure it out, especially with the Lords Help!
Cool thing that happened this week, so whenever we see Uhauls as a missionary, we jump on that opportunity. We were driving through this apartment complex when we noticed a family moving in and we asked if they needed help, They said Yes, and we helped this family move all of their furniture into there new apartment. (2nd Floor is farther than I thought haha) They were so thankful for the simple act of service and The Mother Kept calling us "Her Angels". I was just thankful for my Ripped Muscles to Lift everything into their Apartment haha jk. Anyways she was talking with us and said she has been looking for a church for her and her family to attend so we are looking forward to seeing where this potential could go.
So now that Barbara's been Baptized we have been teaching her the new member lessons which are going good, we were able to get another member out with us to be able to fellowship with her and help her in the Gospel. We also have been working on her Family History so she can take some names to the Temple next Friday, we are pretty excited for that and happy that we will be able to attend with her. It will be a neat experience for all of us.
We had a lesson with The Rosendorfs last night, they are probably one of my favorite members in the ward, they are a an old couple who are Less Active but they are awesome and I love them, they are fun to be around. We Shared a message on Christ's Atoning Sacrifice. "Our Savior… knows our struggles, our heartaches, our temptations, and our suffering, for He willingly experienced them all as an essential part of His Atonement....His Atonement also gives us the opportunity to call upon Him who has experienced all of our mortal infirmities to heal us and give us the strength to bear the burdens of mortality." I know that Jesus Christ Died for all of us, and we all can benefit from his loving sacrifice if we choose to follow him and do our best to do as he would do. I know that Centering our lives on Jesus Christ will bring us Everlasting Happiness.
Things are still going good, Elder Fenn and I are Doin' Work and enjoying every bit of it. We're excited for the temple next week with Barbara. And for the things we have going forward. The scriptures I would like to share this week are found in Mosiah 3:7-8, 7 And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people. 8 And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; these scriptures just give us a understanding of the things are savior went through for all of us, because of the love he has for each and every one of us. Love you all, Have a wonderful week!!
