Week of the Day.

Hello all of yall!

This past week has been amazing. I can't believe how fast this week has gone by. 

We did a lot of service for Mark this week. I learned a lot about the different kind of tools a car might need. We are trying to fix the clutch so that the car will work again. It is a hard task and we are so close. I had to stop because it was starting to get cold outside. We will eventually get the car back up to running.

Another important thing that is happening this week is that Mark is going to get a job that will help him get back to where he was before he quit his last job to take care of his father. I believe that he will get the job tomorrow

I gave myself a haircut this morning and I think it looks good. 

The work in this area is a little slow at the moment. We are getting as much member trust as we can get. We are teaching member families the Restoration in order to get referrals, but mostly we come up empty handed. Knocking isn't really that fun and no one wants to hear the message we share about Jesus Christ. We both are keeping our hopes up and the members are happy to have missionaries. 

There is a lady that just loves me and wants to pinch my cheeks. She is about 60 years old and I think it is really funny. Something that is really good is that the bishop keeps sending us to go see certain people of the ward each week. We are trying to find the lost sheep right now. Some of the people have moved and their records are still in the ward and it is our job to find out if they still live at that same address. 

I woke up and I didn't even remember it was Valentines day. Just as we woke up today and forgot it was Presidents day. We found out once we went to the library that it was closed. I want everyone to know that I love them and I can't wait to see all of you again. Trust the Lord in all things and everything will be okay. 

I love yall!

Talk in Church

Hey all!!!

This week has been really cool. So I gave a talk yesterday and I really only had a few things to say but I knew the Lord would help me say some more things. I was supposed to give a 10 minute talk and I gave a 13 minute talk. My topic was "Seeking and Recognizing the Promptings of the Holy Ghost" I had a blast while I was up there. I shared with them a time when I felt the spirit so much. March 12th 2014, the day I got my mission call. I believe my mother truly knows the experience I had with her up at the temple that day.

So it's Lovers Feast TIME!!!! I wish so badly that I could come watch Bretton perform. I wish I knew the story line. I hope Bretton has a cool part to play! 

I am glad to hear the Logan is on his way. Can I have his Mission Email please.

This week I feel as if the Lord is preparing me for something special. I don't know what it is but I have been under a lot of stress with a talk. Organizing a family home evening and then having a 15 minute conversation tomorrow for DDM. I am just doing things one right after the other. All I know is that the Lord is helping me and I have already seen his blessings. 

I want to wish a Happy Valentine's Day to all those that are single still. Happy Singles Awareness Day!!! hehe :)

So I have been makings lots of new friends in my new area and I just hope that they all will help move the work along. I think I just have gotten a lot of friends because of how well my talk went. Member Trust!!! 

I want you all to know that I have the best companion in the world and I wouldn't trade him for anyone right now!!! :) hehe I am having so much fun out here!! Today we went shopping at Good Will and some other places. I hope that everything is going well for you. I am praying for you and I can't wait to see you all again. 

Tell Amelia that I give her a hug. She needs not to worry. She will see her sons again, and that time is going to come fast. I can't believe I have already been out 6 and a half months. I already wish I had more time to serve but I already understand that I will eventually have to go home and start over. I love all of you!!!

Logan you Rock!!!

Braden, Take pics of Bretton for me. :)

Save me some Soup!!!!! hehe jk.

I love you again. I can't tell you how much I love being out here on my mission and I know that I am doing the Lords work and I am happy.

New Area

Hey Y'all!!!

This past week has been really cool. I miss all of you. I hope that life is good. Teach everybody and give missionaries referrals please. Good luck on Bretton's mission papers. I am praying for Y'all. I don't have much to say this week, I just don't know what to say. I helped out a guy around his house and helped him with his laundry.

I will be giving a talk this Sunday about the Holy Ghost and Recognizing Prompting's of the Spirit. I have been trying really hard to find people to teach. It just doesn't seem like it is going well so far. The people don't like missionaries here very much. No one will let us in once it gets dark. I am trying to smile all day long while riding my bike to get everyone that sees me to wonder why I am smiling so much. This way people will be happier in the area and maybe will let us in. :) It's interesting I know, but it's something for now.

We are also trying to get more trust with the members. They are more than happy to come out with us to teach and see people but none of them except one family has any referrals to have us teach. I hope that we find someone soon to teach.

Mark is having a hard time but we are helping him out. Saturday I was going to say a prayer. I started and then he stopped me and then told me that he didn't want me to pray for him. He just want to have a prayer of Thanksgiving. After the prayer it just made me stop and think on how much I pray for only Thanksgiving.

I know that this is a short letter but we have been updating the area book a ton right now. Still no iPad and I hope that school and work is going well. I love you all and I can't wait to see you all for a hug.

Love Y'all!
