|What's over that way?|
This week was rather slow. We went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders. I was with Elder Santiago and it was really good. Taught a really good lesson but I felt really sick. I prayed to help me not throw up and to make it through the night feeling better. We went to dinner after that and it was french toast, which is like one of my favorite things, but I was so sick I couldn't eat but half of one. After dinner with that dope family In Jonesboro, I asked the elders with us to give me a blessing. Elder Brinkerhoff is from Cedar City!! He's super awesome I love the kid. He came out with Elder Cundick. Anyways, after the blessing I still felt uneasy, but I trusted in the blessing that I would feel better. Well God is kinda funny when it comes to answering prayers and blessings. I thought I would just feel better and not think twice of the night, but no. We get to this lesson with a less active and investigator, and as soon as I sit down, I felt it. I asked to go to the bathroom (they're living in a motel for the time being, so it was a very small bathroom) and I broke my streak of about 4 years without actually like, letting loose of my insides. But I felt better...I had a little thank you/why the freak did you do that to me prayer. We had an amazing lesson on following the 10 commandments after that.
|Hello, lights, my old friends.|
Thursday was obviously Thanksgiving! So that meant no one wanted us to knock on their door. We got stuff to make cookies and made cookies for members and delivered them. We are with the Meadors for lunch and the Barrett's for dinner. The Barrett's are our adopted parents basically haha. It was great! They took us to see the Christmas light show...it made me the happiest boy alive! No joke I felt like a child again. I friggin love Christmas lights.
|I'm bathed in lights and the light of Christ.|
|How about some more lights?|
|Still wondering what's over that way...|
|LIGHTS...I power the LIGHTS!|
|It's a Book of Mormon beat down!|
|Be brave...sort of, this was at night...|
2 Timothy 2:10
Therefore, I will endure all things for the elects sake, that they might also obtain salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
I know this work is real. I endure the hard times with a hope that someone will even have a chance to take a glance of the light that comes through Christ. As stated again in 2 Timothy 2, I'll endure the hardness and be a good soldier of Jesus Christ. It's hard and sometimes it sucks and I don't want any part of it, but nothing is more rewarding. I love y'all. Aim high and go for gold.
