Dear Family and Friends,
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day. I am so grateful for the sacrifices of our military men and women. God bless America! Thank you to all who have served and all who are still serving especially my dad! He's awesome!
This week was pretty good. We had 21 lessons and found 2 new investigators. Our new investigators are both teenagers. It's crazy that we've been spending time trying to strengthen the youth, and now we are teaching youth. The Lord was definitely preparing us for that! Sister Soleta and I only have 1 week left together :( We both have no idea where we will go, or who will be our next companions, but we will figure that out sometime this week. Ahhhh...I'm scared.
This week we did have some fun times. Our investigator, Charlie, donated some pants and asked if we could find someone who wants them. These pants were big so let me tell you...Sister Soleta and I had some fun. We both fit in the pants at the same time! Pictures attached. Oh that was a fun night :)
We also had our zone conference. It was awesome! We talked a lot about agency. Agency, our ability to choose, is the only thing that is not God's. When we choose to follow God we are actually giving Him the only thing that is not already His. He doesn't really need our money, but He does ask us to pay tithing to see if we will give Him our agency. When we think of it in this way, it means so much more.
We also talked about having softened hearts. Our Mission President said, "The gospel cannot be written in your heart if your heart isn't open!" Let us all humble ourselves enough so we can listen to what the Lord is asking of us. Let us all soften our hearts so we can learn what the Lord wants us to learn.
We don't have much time today, so that's basically all that happened last week. One last quote I really liked from Zone Conference:
I won't give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go till He stops me. And when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear.
Charlie's pants :)
