This week has been a real good one for us! We are doing really good! The weather has finally started to turn and its cold now! About time! I love the Cold! This week it was almost 80 degrees in the beginning of the week and down into the 40s and 50s by the end! The work here is finally picking up. We have found several new people to teach and the ones we are teaching now are getting more solid! We have proved a point this week to an atheist who we have been teaching named Paul. He a super cool guy and I’m happy that we are finally getting across to him! We were reading the story of Enos with him about prayer and forgiveness. Then I asked him from his perspective how he would go about receiving forgiveness! He said he didn't know! So we are getting him to start thinking finally! Also we are teaching a Protestant Pastor named Rod and we got him thinking this week too talking bout exercising our faith! Things are improving and progressing here in the Crick! We had the opportunity to go on 2 exchanges this week. We did one with the APs and one with the Edmond 4th Elders. I went with AP Elder Debenham to Moore on Tuesday and then I stayed in Quail Creek with Elder Anderson on Friday! They are both so awesome! I’m so thankful that I can serve with all these amazing missionaries!
So today we are having our zone P day and we are all getting together at the stake center to play some sports! Then after that we are having an STM (specialized training meeting) as a zone and me and Elder Taggart are teaching that! We are talking about baptism and Beware of Pride! It’s going to be really good! We received a lot of inspiration as we prepared this training over the last few weeks so I’m really excited!
This week I have been reading in The Book of Mormon in the book of Mosiah about the People of Limhi. Ammon is teaching them and Share something with them that I love! In verse 33 he says,
" But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in Him, and serve Him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, He will, according to His own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage."
So here he says very plainly that if we turn to the Lord and trust Him, He will deliver us out of our own bondage. Whatever that may be! I love that the Lord is willing to help us as long as we are willing to serve Him and do what He asks of us. He has given us everything and all He asks in return, is that we keep His commandments!
I am so thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who loves us all individually and hears our prayers! I love y’all and hope that y’all have a wonderful week!
