Well, it has been a nice week. :)
Can I tell you how incredible the gospel is? If we truly live the gospel, we are so BLESSED and HAPPY. We are teaching an inactive that strayed from the church about 22 years ago. He started singing, (like a rock star) and that brought him into a new group of friends. He fell quickly and started drinking, and doing things that he knew he shouldn't do. It is so sad to see the mess that his life is. We were talking with him and the one thing that kept coming to mind was, "If you had lived the gospel, you would not have ANY of these problems." The gospel is a protection for us. It is a play book for how we can be happy. If you want to have lasting happiness, LIVE THE GOSPEL. I know that it brings happiness, I have felt this in the short time I have been here. I am happier than I have ever been. I have found a peace in life, a reason to keep pushing on. God wants to help us be happy and he has given us all the steps that we must take. THAT is the gospel! Im so grateful for my Savior and for the gospel. It doesn't matter what is happening, because our Heavenly Father and Jesus are always there for us!
So this week, we have been trying to look for new people to teach. That always includes some interesting conversations. There was a woman this week that started talking to us about how turkeys reproduce. YIKES!
CA. is AWESOME, when we are with her. The problem is that we can hardly ever find her. We still have hope, but the progress is a bit slower than we would like to see. She is still looking forward to her baptism. We are just having to push it back a couple more weeks.
All is well! I love you all!
See you soon,
