February 10, 2014

So this week was CRAZY! It didn't really go like it was planned but it had its ups and downs. Here are some of the things that happened. We got to go to the Gilbert temple open house on Saturday morning and it was amazing! We went with Paul and Betsy Randall a part member family, her dads is the local Baptist preacher. And they really enjoyed it! The chandelier was 1600 lbs in the celestial room! pretty cool! So every trip to the valley takes more than half the day and that was one.. Then one day my companion had a doctor’s appointment for some stuff and we had to go down and that took all day but it was cool cause my comp and Elder Armitage’s comp both had appointments and so we took them down and then while they were seeing the doc we went back to the Beverly ward in Mesa where we served together and it was awesome!! We got to see the Hansen family and Karen and the boys and some other people and i was sooo happy! We had fun. Then yesterday a missionary got transferred unexpectedly and my comp and another missionary had to accompany him to the valley so when they came back up there would still be 2 together and so yesterday i wasn't in my area or with my comp so that's who was in that text you got mom. On Sunday we had a lesson with Levi! He is coming along great, still reading the book of Mormon and the restoration went over great! He wants to be baptized on the 22 of this month! I know missions aren't about the number of baptisms or anything but it feels so good to be able to have one coming up and be able to be able to see the reward of our work. This morning we taught seminary and it was really fun! We got to talk about being an influence on our family and friends and how they can be a missionary right now. Well, have a wonderful week!

Scripture of the week:  7 And behold, ye do know of yourselves, for ye have witnessed it,that as many of them as are brought to the knowledge of the truth,and to know of the wicked and abominable traditions of their fathers, and are led to believe the holy scriptures, yea, the prophecies of the holy prophets, which are written, which leadeththem to faith on the Lord, and unto repentance, which faith and repentance bringeth a change of heart unto them. I like this scripture because it of what it says at the very end, a change of heart. Repenting always sounds like such a hard word but really its as simple as putting our will with heavenly fathers will and just becoming a better person, the person the lords wants and needs us to become.
