Well, it’s been a bit of a long week but it’s getting better! It’s been cooling down here too! It’s soooooo nice! It’s been in the 80’s this week but not nearly as humid! We have been getting lots of exercise 🙂 There not many have pianos here! We have a lot of doctors in our ward. Our investigators are good… we haven’t been able to see all of them this week due to some stuff that came up in the district and in the ward… but every things good now.The area is slowly getting better. We still can’t find many people to teach so we are working with a lot of less-actives. Could y’all pray for Andy, the Jones, Missy and Addley?
Monday, we had FHE again! It’s really fun, great way to learn and we had P-day!
Tuesday, we went on exchanges… they were okay…. and we had district meeting! sand the last 3 weeks we’ve had interviews which have been really needed to take care of some stuff.
Wednesday, we ended exchanges and did laundry at a member’s house! The member is awesome! He’s had a hard life but he’s a really really good guy!
Thursday, we tracted a lot and had dinner at a member’s house at Fort Polk… it was… interesting trying to get on post… Some how one of the elders ended up with my companions driver’s license, water bottle and my package. It caused a lot of stress…. but in the end God blessed us and we were able to get on post ! The dinner with the member was awesome! it was really good and the member’s are great!
Friday, we had Zone training meeting…. it honestly wasn’t too good but I got to see 2 of my past companions! I asked for a blessing from the 3 that were there! It was really good and needed! We learned a lot about how to get along with your companion…. and how to make tracting fun and a few other things. My Knee has really been bothering me. Last night Elder Rush and I gave Andy a blessing and one of the sister’s in our district.
Saturday, we did more tracting hahah… and that was about it. Thank you for the packages.
Sunday, was probably the best day of the week! Our 1st councilor in our mission presidency came and spoke! It was a really good talk! Then we had interviews with him. He encouraged us and said that we are doing a good job. Told us that it doesn’t matter about numbers or what others think about us, to just do what the lord asks us to and follow the spirit! He really under stands the spirit of the law! We talked about a lot of stuff. Both my companion and I have been feeling a ton better after we had that good talk with him!
My testimony has been helped a lot because no matter what other’s think, if your doing what God wants you to do, then your doing right. If the spirit tells you to do something, then you should do what you need to do to get permission and follow the spirit of the law. You will be blessed in the long run even if you don’t see the blessings right away. When the Spirit says your doing a good job then listen and and don’t think other wise.
There are tons of LSU fans, haha. I’ve been studying Helaman and the start of the Bible! I hope y’all have a great week! Remember the lord loves you, is always listening and will provide a way to help things get better!
