September 6th

Hey yall! 

   This week has been a wild one! Its been hot, humid, and fun! We have been so blessed this last week. Opening a new area is unlike anything I've ever done before. Its super hard because neither of us know where we are goin at all. We pretty much have to start from scratch! But its good because we pay more attention now! 
   My comp Elder Larsen is a stud so that helps too! He is a hard worker and I'm pretty sure that he came pre-trained. I'm not doin much trainin at all because he already knows and does it all! But anyhow, I don't think that I have ever seen this many miracles happening everyday. I have seen so many miracles on my mission but never this frequently! It is amazing! Its so great to be a part of something like this. 
   We have been focusing a lot lately on prayer and the preparation and work that goes into it! So many times we take prayer for granted. We have the chance to communicate with God! Our Father in Heaven. We cannot take this sacred privilage for granted! Its such a blessing to be able to talk to Him in that way. It states in the Bible Dictionary about prayer:

"As soon as we learn the true relationship in which we stand toward God (namely, God is our Father, and we are His children), then at once prayer becomes natural and instinctive on our part (Matt. 7:7–11). Many of the so-called difficulties about prayer arise from forgetting this relationship. Prayer is the act by which the will of the Father and the will of the child are brought into correspondence with each other. The object of prayer is not to change the will of God but to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that God is already willing to grant but that are made conditional on our asking for them. Blessings require some work or effort on our part before we can obtain them. Prayer is a form of work and is an appointed means for obtaining the highest of all blessings."

   We cannot forget this relationship! It is so important that we put in the effort so that our prayer is not wasted. Heavenly Father wants to help and bless us in every way that he can.
Anyhow, just a thought yall. All is well here and we are so blessed! See yall in a month!

Love yall!
Elder Walker
