This week had been something! My new companion, Elder Van Halder had a companion who didn't like to work so we worked this week! We taught tons of lessons, got 4 new investigators and handed out lots of Book of Mormons! It was awesome! Also on Saturday I got to go back to Mustang to see the baptism of Marty. He was someone that I started teaching with elder Staheli when I first got there. 6 months ago he wanted nothing to do with the church and now he is a member! Oh man that was amazing to see! We should have a few more that are coming up here in the next month or so! But other than that we were out and about a lot! It was hot all week which is sort of nice haha. A nice change of weather!
But one thing that I’ve been thinking lots about this week is happiness. Where does true happiness come from and how to we have that? I was reading in Mosiah 2:41. Here it talks about how happy the people are because they keep the commandments of God and are righteous. When we are doing what the Lord wants us to do, he blesses us so much. He always wants us to be happy and he wants to bless us but he can’t unless we do our part! He's got His blessing cannon loaded with blessings and ready to fire at us, but we have to be the one to light the fuse. It’s crazy to think that some of the blessings that we either did or didn't receive are because of us. There’s only one person to blame. "Ask and ye shall receive. Knock and it shall be opened unto you." (D&C 4:7) Love ya’ll and hope you have a wonderful and happy week!
This is Marty (in the blue) and his family. His wife is already a member and the kids will be baptized soon!
