It started with a call and ended with a prayer!

So this past week on Tuesday, I received a call to be a District Leader.

We were able to finally get in to teach some of our investigators. It
is amazing how the Lord is willing to wait until we are worthy and
ready for us to come in contact with people. I know as we each try to
work on our selves to become the most obedient to Gods commandments,
we have no choice but being blessed. We all are given the opportunity
and choice to follow and become a deciple of Jesus Christ. Like the
Lord says "I the am bound when ye do what I say, but when ye do not
what I say, ye have no promise".

Then the crowning event was getting to go to the Temple this morning.
It is still marveling to see how God knows each and everyone of us
personally. He knows what choices we are going to make and can set
plans in place before we even ask for things.

I love you all. I hope y'all have a great week ahead.

It's The Small Things That Count!

This past week we had several small miracles happen, it was interesting thou, because we ended up having almost all our appointments cancel. So we had plenty of time to go and try finding new people. So one of the days we decided to go and do some leaf racking for people who hadn't had it done yet. We were able to talk with many people that way who were grateful for the service. Then we had tried doing some tracting, and we found some people who were interested in hearing the message that we had to share with them. I think it is so awesome to see people be influenced by the light of Christ, when they were surrounded by the chaos of the worldly influences.

I know that as we listen to the prophets both Biblical and Modern, we will be able to receive promptings on how we can change our lives to be better. I know that Tomas S Monson is our current Prophet upon this earth. I know Nephi is a Prophet from The Book of Mormon. I know Moses was a Prophet from the Bible. I know all y'all can pray to know of these same things. I hope each and everyone of you are able to feel of the Holy Ghost at some point this coming week.

I love you all. I hope y'all have a great week to come.

What a good Thanksgiving!

Well, to start off, we had Thanksgiving yesterday. We had the Members we live with have a few sets of Missionaries over for dinner who didn't have one. So we got a Thanksgiving picture together:

So then this past week we went out tracting, out of 9 houses we knocked on, 5 of them answered the door, out of those 5, 3 of them are interested in having us come back to teach them more about the Gospel. So that just shows that there are many people who have been prepared to hear the Gospel.

If anyone has any Ideas on how to help someone want to come to church, please share?

Love always,

What a Great Conference

I thought it was awesome to have seen 3 new Apostle's called this weekend, Elder Ronald A. Rasband, Elder Gary E. Stevenson and Elder Dale G. Renlund. I know they have been called of God. I know that they will help teach us the Gospel in ways we can understand it.

I loved Elder Uchtdorf's talk on Saturday morning, he focused on not over complicating the Gospel. In reality the Gospel of Jesus Christ is very basic. All it comes down to is having Faith in Jesus Christ, Continually repenting, getting baptized and continually partaking of the Sacrament, Using The Holy Ghost, and Staying strong until the end. We should look for the simple truths. We should simplify what we know.

Also I learned about how if we have enough faith, we can ask God and receive an answer to what ever we ask Him. Just think, all we have to do is ask!

I know that The Book of Mormon is true (I have prayed about it), I know the Bible is True (I have also prayed about it), I know that Joseph Smith IS a prophet ( I have prayed about it), I know Thomas S Monson is our current and living prophet (I have prayed about it), I know Jesus Christ is our Savior (I have prayed about it), I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father (I have prayed about it). I know that you can come to this a surety for you self, all you have to do is pray bout it with a sincere heart.

I love you all. I know God loves you.
