#Hallelujah WEEK #54

 Hey Everyone this week has been pretty good. We had some good lessons and were able to reach out to a lot of people. I'm still doing good. Cocoa is great. Elder Fenn and I just out here doing the work of the Lord!! Today we got to go to a MLB baseball game so that was pretty sickkk. 

We had a pretty good lesson with Doug this week, We taught Him Obedience to Gods Commandments. We can, in this life be so much happier if we choose to follow Gods Commandments out of love. By keeping the Commandments we prepare for eternal life. The Lord has promised us blessings if we do these things. I know that our Heavenly Father has so much In store for us and if we choose to disobey, we will miss out on the blessings we could have received. Teaching Doug has been great, he has a strong love for Heavenly Father and doing all that He asks of us. Getting him to live this principle shouldn't be hard haha. 

So the Church just dropped a new video for the Easter Initiative, "#Hallelujah An Easter message about Jesus Christ. This is a great way we can share the Gospel that we love with others. Check out the video and share it. You know what we gon be sharin' errry day!

We had a really good lesson with our investigator Lucien Bruno, He is the father of a part member family that we have been teaching. This family is awesome and I've really enjoyed getting to know them. We shared a very powerful message about our Savior Jesus Christ. Then we had a small testimony meeting. The spirit was definitely present in their home and I know we all could feel it. Sister Bruno thanked us for our testimonys  and told us how thankful she was to have us come over and do this for them. I thought about how lucky I am as a missionary to be able to hear so many great testimonys from family's just like them. I love sharing the Truu Gospel!! 

Zone Conference was on Thursday, they can always be fun....They also can be very long! Haha I really enjoyed President Berry's training that he gave on Repentance. This is a very important step in our eternal progression and it's important for us to help those we teach understand this principle. 

Something I thought I would share this week, "The Savior’s precious birth, life, Atonement in the Garden of Gethsemane, suffering on the cross, burial in Joseph’s tomb, and glorious Resurrection all became a renewed reality for us. The Savior’s Resurrection assures all of us that someday we too will follow Him and experience our own resurrection. What peace, what comfort this great gift is which comes through the loving grace of Jesus Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind. There is no greater expression of love than the heroic Atonement performed by the Son of God." I'm thankful for my knowledge of Jesus Christ and His love he truly gives me.

Well here we are another week come and gone! We are now entering week 6 of the Transfer and things are looking good. The work here in Cocoa is moving along pretty well and has been a lot of fun. I feel Blessed!! The scripture I would like to share this week is 1st Corinthians 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Love you all have a wonderful week. Happy St. Patrick's Day!! πŸ€
