General Conference & Hittin' The Streets Of Cocoa Week #57

Hey Everyone, another week a has come and gone and now week 1 of the Transfer is already over, it was a good week. Elder Goddard is a great guy and we will get along really well. He's just a good Hearted kid and I'm excited to work with him. He's still got that greenie fire that I lost a long time ago haha. He loves the work and the people. Me and Goddard were able to see some success this past week and were able to set some really good goals for the transfer. I'm really excited to see the blessings from our Diligence! 

This week we did a lot of Less Active Hunting, There are a lot of Less Active's in this Ward so we have been trying to get in contact with a lot of them and knock the doors around them. We were able to find a couple new Less Active's to work with, as well as a new investigator Leroy, we shared a the Restoration with him and he really enjoyed it. We are going to see him again this next coming week, hopefully everything will go as planned and he will progress.

A little update with Doug, He has been very busy with his store in Orlando, he also has been very sick, like the Flu and Chills... Not Fun. We decided to go see how he was doing and give him a Big Kit Kat candy Bar, he really was happy that we did that for him but we could tell he really wasn't feeling well at all.. 1 Positive to take away from this visit is he said that he has been reading The Book of Mormon so that was cool we are really hoping to see him this next week and help him progress towards baptism.

One of my favorite talks from General Conference was "The Healing Ointment of Forgiveness" by Elder Kevin R. Duncan, There is not a soul alive who will not, at one time or another, be the victim to someone else’s careless actions, hurtful conduct, or even sinful behavior. Gratefully, God has taught us that we can forgive! Even though we may be a victim once, we need not be a victim twice by carrying the burden of hate, bitterness, pain, resentment, or even revenge. We can forgive, and we can be free! One key to forgiving others is to try to see them as God sees them. Forgiveness is the very reason God sent His Son, so let us rejoice in His offering to heal us all. The Savior’s Atonement is not just for those who need to repent; it is also for those who need to forgive. If you are having trouble forgiving another person, or even yourself, ask God to help you." I really enjoyed conference and can't believe it was my 3rd time watching it on the Mish. The Prophets and Apostles have a lot of love for us members. They Lead and Guide Christ's Church here on earth.. The Church is Truuu!!

Well me and Goddard have a good week planned and are excited about this transfer and the Goals we can Achieve once again I'm so thankful for my mission and the things that I've learned and people that I've grown to love. So many Blessings!! The scripture I would like to share is Amos 3:7 7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Prophets are here to help lead all of Heavenly Father's children back to him. Hope everyone has a good week!

Elder Gentry
