We Goin' Zero to πŸ’― Real Quick WEEK #76

What's up everyone, 

Elder Gentry and my boi Elder Reyes are doing very well, this week has been tough! We have had a ton of appointments cancel on us and it's just been one of those weeks haha. Hey it's all good tho, we will bounce back and kill the Game!!! One thing that's cool is even in the bad weeks you still can see the Lords hand in your work and you have some good things happen! So even tho it was a tough week I can say good things happened!!

So update on Willie, He is doing very well and he just had his interview with the Bishop yesterday and will be receiving the Aaronic Priesthood next Sunday!! He's been doing really good and he has told us that he feels super Blessed, he just got a new full time job and he said he's already seeing the blessing of tithing! He said I like these blessing but I want to help others have them too! He told us this week that we the missionaries are his new superheroes!! This is the reason I love this work, bringing blessings I've seen in the Gospel to other people!! I love my brotha Willie!!

We have done a lot of finding this week with all of the appointments canceling and it's been tough and really has tested my patience. I know that there are prepared people and we just have to find them. We will keep doing are Best and pushing through!!! 

We had a really good lesson with Makyla, it was on the Word of Wisdom and we were able to talk about how are body's are temples and we need to take care of them and keep them healthy, we also answered her question about tattoos and helped her understand why we shouldn't have them. She's doing really well, we did move her baptismal date back to the 17th, she said she has been worried about it and she's not sure what happens at them, the other Ward is having a baptism next week and she said she would like to go to check it out. Makyla is awesome and we know the Lord will bless her and help her make this right decision! 

Something I wanted to share this week is from a talk given by Elder Randall K. Bennett, "Your Next Step" The Lord more than matches our willingness to act in faith. Our willingness to take a step is not just met; it is exceeded by the Lord’s promised blessings. Heavenly Father and our Savior are eager to bless us. After all, They ask only for one-tenth of what They bless us with and then promise that the windows of heaven will open! Whenever we willingly act with faith in Jesus Christ and take another step, especially an uncomfortable step requiring change or repentance, we are blessed with strength. 

Things here in Deland are going good, I love my mission and the blessing that come from this great Work!! Elder Reyes and I will keep pushing forward with faith and do the best we can to help build up this area!! The scripture I would like to share this week is Mormon 9:22 For behold, thus said Jesus Christ, the Son of God, unto his disciples who should tarry, yea, and also to all his disciples, in the hearing of the multitude: Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature; Love this Scripture, Love you All!! Have a good week!

Elder Gentry
