What a great week. Being a missionary is probably the best thing ever.
This week we got to do a lot of finding. We are really trying to increase our teaching pool and so we did a lil bit of tracting. We tracted for like 4 and half hours one day. That was...fun... ha-ha it really was though I was reminded of the scripture Mosiah 24:14-15 which has become my motto. It talks about how the lord makes the burdens on our backs feel light so even we can’t feel it. It was cool because no one answered for the first 4 hours Hahaha but its wasn't bad at all. And the last half hour right before we went to dinner everyone opened the doors and were so willing to talk to us. They were really interested. It was sweet to see how we were blessed to find people as we were diligent and patient and just did all we could and left the rest to the lord.
So there is this missionary out here who has a scholarship to go and play quarterback for Boise state. His kind of good by kind of I mean he’s really good. We played football last week though and I was quarter back for my team and he was the opposing quarter back and my team walked all over him. So pretty much I realized that I can play college football as a quarterback now. So that's the only game plan I just need to get a highlight real to send out to people. Ha-ha jk
We had some big dogs from salt lake come to our mission this week and so a bunch of us were able to go and be trained by them and I was a lucky one that did. It was sweet. They are changing a lot of things in our mission and them and president bennion have talked and are really pushing this mission to greater heights. There were a lot of great things they said I am so grateful for the chance to be a part of this mission and to be a missionary at this time and at all for that matter. It truly is a blessing and a privilege.
This week at church it was extra amazing for me as well. I loved it. The testimonies I heard felt like they were specifically for me. Almost like god was talking to me directly through the mouth of others. this lady got up and bore her testimony about how the devil makes us feel like crap when we make mistakes he makes us feel horrible about it and he makes us think that there is no hope. That we can’t change and become better. And then she said the Holy Ghost, when we make mistakes makes us feel bad as well. We are going to feel the guilt but she said that the Holy Ghost is different because he feels us with the hope of a better future and the knowledge that we can change and become better. It was so true. The devil tries to take away our hope and the spirit gives us the sure knowledge of hope for better things.
Another lady said “every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day" every single day there are tender mercies of the lord. We just need to look and be aware and then we will see many many more than we have before.
I also got to invited to help with a baby blessing and that was so freaking cool. That was the first time I had done that. And it was a great experience.
The church really is true. There is no way I could receive so much happiness that wasn't from god.
I love you all.
