What's Up everyone,
My week here in Kissimmee has been good!! Rain or Shine you know we be workin' hard!! Elder Hawkins and I are doing very well and can't believe how fast this transfer is going! We had some good things happen this week! Oh and I have also lost 39 Lbs so that's good!
So we will get the bad out of the way, I was sick all day Friday and it was miserable and missed out on a party, an investigator wanted to take us out to dinner so we did a temporary exchange with the District Leader and he took them out to this Mexican restaurant that played really loud Hispanic music and they told me it was a blast but more importantly they were able to leave good impressions on the investigator and he was able to learn a lot about the church.
So we had a really cool lesson with a new Less Active we are going to be teaching, she is awesome and super friendly. She expressed to us the love that she has for the church and how much she truly misses it. She has had a lot of trials in her life and as of late she has dealt with a lot of death in her family. We read with her out of The Book of Mormon in Mosiah chapter 16 where it talks about the Resurrection. Jesus Christ overcame death and we all have been given that promise that we all will be resurrected and will live with our loved ones again!
We had a really cool lesson this new family that we picked up a couple of weeks ago, we show up to their house on Saturday and they invite us in, their English isn't very well so it's kind of a struggle to talk with them, halfway through our conversation before we started the lesson their 14 year old daughter comes downstairs and she speaks English very well so it was a blessing to have her throughout the lesson, we taught them the Restoration and it went really well the daughter had to translate a little for us but it worked out, the daughter was really interested in the things we were teaching and the family said they would love to have us back, we are going to be teaching them on Thursday, so we hope things go well and they progress!!
Something I wanted to share this week, The Lord has promised if we “search diligently, pray always, and be believing, … all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly.” I know, as did Alma of old, that “whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.” Our Heavenly Father is a powerful, moving, directing being. While we may, at times, bear burdens of sorrow, pain, and grief; while we may struggle to understand trials of faith we are called to pass through; while life may seem dark and dreary--through faith, we have absolute confidence that a loving Heavenly Father is at our side.
We are now entering week 5 of the transfer, we are excited for the week to come other than bike week ending but it's all good, Who doesn't like biking in 100 degree/90% humidity weather hahah anyways I'm doing well and am enjoying my time here in Kissimmee, the scripture I wanted to share comes from Alma 36:3 ....I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day. I love you all have a good week!!
