Well this week flew by! It is crazy how fast time can fly, right?!
-Well we had divisions this week and it was pretty neat! We were able to go to the area of the hermanas. It sure made me more grateful for my area! It is crazy how a 10 min drive can change so much! The people in their area were very cold.. but nevertheless we found some new investigators with them!
-WEDNESDAY was just a miracle! So we had our ward TRUNK or TREAT. Okay, so considering that this was all 100% new for all of our members, they did really well! Everyone brought their assignments, and they all LOVED the games! Almost everyone came dressed up too! But OH MAN, we were so stressed that it was going to be a fail! Haha BUT IT WASN'T! I will attach pictures!! One of our investigtors (Wendy) helped us a ton with the decorations!
-Well it has been a little rough with Wendy and Bryan this week. Bryan started drinking again. And Bryan doesn´t want to get married to Wendy anymore.. So they are probably going to seperate.. But Wendy is still so great. She is reading in the Book of Mormon, and is just loving everything. She got a priesthood blessing this week from our Mission leader and his son. That helped her a lot. Please keep her in your prayers.
This week I found lots of quotes that I just loved, here are some:
¨How we respond in any situation has to make things better not worse¨
¨My life wasn´t going as I had planned, but it was still going according to His plan, and He was in control.¨
¨Watch out, you´re going to lose blessings, and you have to work anyway¨(That one is to help me not complain)
¨Defend your beliefs with COURAGE and with COMPASSION, but defend them¨Jeffrey R. Holland
¨You never check your religion at the door¨
¨But behold, the resurrection of Christ redeemeth mankind, yea, even all mankind, and bringeth them back into the presence of the Lord.¨I love this. ISNT THAT THE BEST!! Through Jesus Christ we can return to the presence of God. And it is because He LIVES!! That is why we dont focus on the cross, because He is NOT dead. What a blessing.
Love you all!
