What up everyone!!! I hope you all are having an amazing week I am going to appologize ahead of time if this email is kind of short but I will do my best to hopefully make it GREAT!!! I hope you and your families are doing well and i pray for the lords richest blessings to poured out upon you all!!
Well I will start out by sharing a little spiritual message with you I hope it helps in some way.
"most of us have not reached [a christllike] stage of compassion and love and forgivenes. it is not easy. it requires self-discipline almost greater than we are capable of. But as we try we come to know that there is a resource of healing, that there is a mighty power of healing in christ, and that if we are able to be his true servants we must not only exercise that healing in behalf of others, but, perhaps more importantly, inwardly." - gordon B. hinckley.
If there is one thing I have come to learn in this companionship its been truely becoming a diciple of Jesus Christ. I love the lyrics from this song.
"If the savior stood beside me would I do the things i do?
would I think I think of his commandments and try harder to be true?
Would I follow his example, would I live more righteously?
If I could see the savior standing nigh, watching over me.
If the savior stood beside me would I say the things I say?
Would my words be true and kind if he were never far away?
Would I try to share the gospel? WOuld I speak more revrently?
If I could see the savior standing nigh watching over me.
He is always near me. though I do not see him there
and because he love me dearly I am in his watchful care.
so ill be the kind of person that I'd know I'd like to be.
If I could see the savior standing nigh watching over me. "
I am so greatful to be a representative of my savior, I love him and I pray that I will always be worthy to carry his name. I know that its not just me but I know that all of you who have been baptized represent our savior. I am so greatful for my saviors atoning sacrafice and that it allows me to be worthy to live with my father in heaven. I love this church it truely is great and such a blessin.
Well this week we have been really busy we have "pounded the pavement" i guess you could say haha we are really trying to find some solid people to teach, we know they are out there!! So this week we were able to start teaching a family, we started teaching them on thursday and we had a pretty good lesson with them the lady was so stoked to come to church on sunday and then her fiance came with their baby and I guess the husband loved church, we are looking forward to teaching them this week and hopefully setting them with a baptisimal date. Then one of our other investigators that stopped us on the street a couple weeks ago we had an amazing lesson with him and his wife!! right now they are having some marrige issues and we had an amazing lesson where the spirit was just so powerful it was awesome. I really feel like the lord is placing those elect in our path. we are truely starting to be blessed with wonderful people to teach. Our mission is getting pretty stoked to have Elder Whiting come next week so we have been preparing alot for that.

But there is so much more to do!! I love you all so much continue to pray for those missionary opportunities!!!!! I love ya!! oodles!!!
