Fam and Friends
Hey everybody so this week has been super good. Time is slipping
through the cracks. Weeks seem to feel like days. But it has been a
good week and I'm excited to tell you about it.
This week we have been doing lots of service. We have been still going
to the Kids kitchen and serving the meals to the kids and that has
fun. I never thought I'd say it but I really enjoy workin for free...
as long as I am helping others haha. Also this week was the ceremonial
start of the Iditarod and so we got to help with that on Saturday. My
group sat at a street corner and helped fix the snow after cars drove
across it. I have a bunch of pictures and videos for you guys.
This week we also had Zone Meeting and it went really well. The
trainings were good and at one point they called on me to come share
my Testimony on Jesus Christ. Although my hands and my voice was shaky
because I just don't do well in front of crowds I thought it went
well. I just talked about the atonement and how not only is the
atonement is for our sins but it is also the enabling power to do all
things. At the zone meeting we had a training on sacrifice and I'm
trying to change some things to help me become a better missionary.
The weather up her is finally getting better the last like 5 days have
been straight sunshine and I love every minute of it. The sunlight is
actually out til about 6:30 so it actually feels like a normal day. It
has been way better. I love the sun and can't wait for the snow to
melt. I am so sick of the snow and the cold weather! Haha 😂
Really funny story the other day we were driving up in mountain view
and somebody got their car stuck so pulled over and asked if they
needed any help. No joke her words were "my daughter stole this car
last night and now she got it stuck, but we're okay" and we're like
what?? Haha freakin people of mountain view.
Elder Baures and I have been putting in work here in the A.P. Heights
area trying to find teach and baptize. We visit with lots of good
people both members and non members and I love being able to help them
come closer to Christ. It feels good to be a missionary. I have been
learning a lot about faith and giving my mission to the Lord and
really focusing on the work. I have had struggles with my mind being
in other places and right now I'm just trying to reel it all back and
give everything I have to my mission and the time I have left. I don't
want to short change myself.
Well that was the majority of the things that happened this week and I
am excited to keep working hard and see what the lord can do In this
area. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve the
lord full time to assist him in his labors. Anyway I love you all have
a good week.
Keep the Faith
