March 23rd

Hey Y’all

This week has been nuts! It started off at the Zoo in OKC and it was 82 that day so super nice! Then we put in a sidewalk on Tuesday morning/afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday it rained and we worked. In the rain! I went on exchanges in Thursday to Friday with the 2nd ward elders then Friday to Saturday with the ZL's. Saturday we went to the sisters baptism and that was pretty cool. They found this awesome guy and his son who were totally prepared to hear the gospel! The dad David was baptized about a month ago and he was able to baptize his son Michael which was awesome! Later that night we taught one of our investigators bill and found out that he has a sweet camaro! It’s a 2014 SS with the supercharged 6.2L with 580HP!! Wheeeew! Sweet! I might be coveting that a little bit... haha just kidding! Then on our way home Elder Lloyd got bit by a dog on the ankle haha. It was pretty funny. It was a blue heeler pit bull mix. Not a good combo! It wasn’t that bad but it was deep. We just rubbed some dirt in it but he'll survive.
   This week I have been studying about the Nephites and the Lamanites in Helaman. Even though they all knew that they needed to keep the commandments, they chose not to and eventually fell in into wickedness. And then the crazy part is that the Lamanites were more righteous that the Nephites were! We see the pride cycle happen over and over again and prophets come and prophesy of destruction. The only way they remember the Lord is when they are punished by wars or famine among other things. They are constantly reminded and still choose to be wicked! I sometimes look around me and realize that the pride cycle is still in effect today! People start prospering and being successful and are pretty well off, then they begin to forget where it all comes from and start to get wicked! Let us all be aware of this and don’t forget where all y’alls blessings come from! Love y’all and have a good week!
