Well after over 40 days of fasting from zaxbys I will be reunited with the wonderful place once again. Today I eat lunch at zaxbys and it will be amazing.
What a wonderful week. Specifically conference. It was such a great weekend to hear the prophets and apostles speak and teach us. I absolutely loved every second of it. It was so great. I feel completely spiritually fed. Some of my favorite speakers and talks would be Elder Hollands and President Uchtdorfs on Sunday morning session and I also loved Dale G Renlunds talk in the Saturday afternoon session. There were so many great ones, these are just a few that I really enjoyed. What are some of your favorite ones, ones that really spoke to you?
This week is going to be a great one. Little Chino is getting baptized on Saturday so we are doing all we can to get ready for that. It is so exciting. He has been waiting a long time for this day and now it is finally here. He is so excited for it. Every time we talk about it he gets the biggest smile on his face. He has so much support as well. There are a lot of family members that are not members of the church that are just as excited for him and his baptism. It will be a very great day!
I was on exchange this last week with and elder in my district. It was really. We had to go pick something up that took up a lot of our day and the way it was looking we were only going to get about an hour to tract and to find new people. So we said a prayer to find out where we needed to be at. we both felt good about this street so we went there and said a prayer when we got there as well asking for the lord to help us be led to the people that we were sent to find, we let him know we did not have a lot of time and we wanted to use the little bit of time the best we could. So we got out of the car walked up to this house on the corner. And this man answered the door and him and his wife let us right in. the first door we knocked on let us right in! It was the bates family. The bates have a 2 year old daughter and a 6 week old boy. They sat and we were able to teach them about the book of Mormon. They haven’t been raised in church but what we taught they said it seemed familiar and they could feel themselves being drawn to it. It was such a good experience. We did not have much time but we went after the lord’s guidance and he used us as instruments in his hands. Prayer is real. It is a two way conversation with our heavenly father. We can pray and speak to our heavenly father and he will communicate back to us. We are not alone and we need not ever think or believe we are. Take some time each day and have a conversation with your heavenly father who loves and cares about you so dearly. You will feel his love and know he is there.
I love yall so much have a great week. Remember who you are. Children of god with divine potential.
Love Elder Trevor Ross
