June 20th

Hey Y’all!

   This week has been crazy! I say that every week I know but this week really was crazy! We started off the week with a good pday. We just chilled. It was really nice! 
   Then Tuesday, we drove all the way to Lawton to do car inspections at a zone conference there! That’s a solid 90-mile drive from us. When we got into Lawton, we drove straight into a WILD thunderstorm. We could see the front of the storm from probably 20 miles away! It was huge! On the way back we ended up driving super far east to give a blessing in Sulphur. It made for a long day and lots of miles. But it was all approved so it’s all good. 
   Wednesday we drove up to Norman for OUR Zone Conference. That was awesome! President Walkenhorst talked about Obedience and its blessings. So good! That was the last time being able to see him before he goes home in a week! Also that evening we drove out to a little town of Antioch to pick up a member to go teaching and found a washed out road that made us take a super long detour. It sucked but it was bad! Its gonna take a while to fix that one! 
   Thursday was a normalish day. We found like crazy and got 3 new investigators! That was a miracle! 
   Friday we went to Seminole for district meeting and exchanges. That went really well! 
   On Saturday we went out to a little town called Stratford to install an amp and stereo system in a 79 blazer for a member of our bishopric! That was fun! 
   Then Sunday was wild too. Meetings in Pauls Valley, then a mini sacrament meeting in a little town south of here called Sulphur. There are lots of people that live there that can’t afford to drive all the way up here to PV so we take it to them! Then we had a really good visit with some pig farmers in a town called Paoli. They are the Kidd family and are members that are struggling a bit but they are awesome!  
   Anyhow, this week was long and busy and I’m glad that its over! This coming week should be a good one! We have lots of service planned and y’all know how much I love service! Good stuff! 
   One thing that I have learned this week is that obedience brings so many blessings. When we have a desire to be obedient, Heavenly Father blesses us with the strength to do so. It can be and usually is really hard. But through Him we can be obedient. It requires constant reflection and much repentance. The commandments provide a way for us to live higher than the world. To have an improved quality of life. To TRULY be happy! Its so awesome! 
   Anyhow, I love y’all and hope that you have an amazing week!
