February 16, 2014

Well where should I begin this week’s letter? We had transfers this week! I have a new companion, Elder Judd. He's from Cedar City in Utah and he got off the airplane yesterday! I'm excited, he's going to be a great missionary. I am still in the same area,  in Pine. My companion actually has a grandpa who is living up here and I don't think he’s a member! Also as for Levi, we had a lesson with him this week and were talking and turns out he is on probation which means he has to get interviewed by the Mission President or one of his counselors and if that goes well they write a letter to the first presidency for permission, then in about 2 months we should get the ok. He has an interview tonight and I really feel all will go well, he has a desire to join our church and become a member and he keeps commitments and is a good person. We taught Levi several times over the last week, every Wednesday night we play basketball with the elders and some YM in the ward and a few nonmembers come and we invited Levi and he came last week and loved it! He said he has been praying for better friends and influences in his life and this was an answer to his prayers which was amazing :) It made me think about how often the Lord answers our prayers and how often miracles happen that we don't even notice and our day goes on like nothing happened. Because we pray to be able to help our area and people in it often and felt like we should invite him to basketball but if he never had of told us the background story we never would have even known! Two Sundays ago a less active that hasn't been to church in a couple years that we have been working with finally came to church! And loved it! And during the week she was talking to a friend/acquaintance that was excommunicated and brought him to church and we might be able to start working with him to! We are still working with Sky and Kate. Their mother still won’t give permission for baptism. Hopefully her heart will be softened soon. Gwen is also still slowly coming along; I think she’s going to be ready to get baptized soon. As for Mary and Rodger they are still kinda blowing us off they said to get back to them at the end of this week and maybe then we can meet with them.. Well have a wonderful week and don’t forget to share the gospel with someone :)

Scripture of the week: “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.” Alma 36:3 Put your trust in God and he will help you thru whatever you may be going thru, big or small, ask for help, ask to learn from it and grow from a challenge or trial and it will make you stronger in time to come :)
