So I’ve Been Thinking…

We all know that’s a bad sign but bear with me! This post may be all
over the place! So we had transfers this past week and we got to go
the transfer meeting even though we weren’t getting transferred
because we had to collect iPads and reassign phones and what not.
Anyways. So in our mission we are notified if we are being transferred
the day before this transfer meeting. If we are being transferred we
go to this meeting in a central location and they announce where are
new area is going to be and who are new companion is. After that the
Missionaries going home give a departing testimony.

This past transfer meeting was the first one that has been difficult
for me to attend and I wasn’t even being transferred! It was difficult
because majority of the missionaries going home were missionaries I
had either served with as a companion or in the same ward or became
very close to them through various other things. It was pretty
nostalgic for me. It was hard to see so many missionaries that I am
used to seeing often and look up to a lot go home.

I realized that all of the transfers between now and when I go home
will be like this. The August transfer all the sisters I came out with
go home, marking my 18 month mark. (SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!) The
September/October Transfer Elder Wright (My trainer) goes home along
with tons of other missionaries I have come to love. 2 Transfers after
that, Elder Boaz and again others go home. AFTER THAT I GO HOME. These
thoughts have caused me to think and kind of evaluate my time that
I’ve spent here thus far and how I want to change and improve. My
biggest fear is to go home with nothing about me changed for the
better. THIS TERRIFIES ME. I don’t want to be the old me. It seems
like when you go on a mission ALL of your imperfections float to the
surface. It can be pretty over whelming at times, ,seeing all these
things you want to and need to change. Heaven knows there are a lot of
things. This reflection has helped me evaluate my progress and make
goals on how to be better! Not only to become the person I want to be
but more importantly become the person our Heavenly Father wants me to
be, because ultimately who our Heavenly Father wants us to be will be
the person we ourselves will be the most happy being.

Going along with this, one of the things I have been striving to work
on is loving everyone we come in contact with, with the same love
Christ and our Father in Heaven has for them. I have seen this develop
in small ways. Whether it be, being more aware of ways to serve
everyone around us or having that sincere desire to teach people the
gospel because you KNOW it will make them happy. Though this has been
a goal of mine for some time, I felt like I was not succeeding at
having Christ-like love for others. Last night and over the past week
I have noticed the difference in the love and compassion I have to
people I talk to. Last night we were talking with a gentleman, we have
talk with him a few times before, just briefly, but he was like “I
need to be honest guys, you are great young men but I feel like you
are wasting your time with me. I have TONS of things going on and I
feel like you would be better off teaching helping someone else.” He
is such a sincere man, all he wants in life is whats best for his
family. We tried explaining to him that it would not be a waste of
time, that ever soul is great in the sight of God. But he felt like he
was beyond what we could do to help him no matter what we said. It was
heart-breaking. I wanted to do whatever it takes to help him! Even if
it took the next 200 years! I loved this man while knowing nothing
about him except for he has a family and his name. I love him because
Christ loves him. When we sincerely seek and ask for help to have that
desire to have Christ-like love in our lives, it WILL be given us.
Love needs to be the motivating factor behind EVERYTHING we do.
One other thing I have been working on is not saying “can’t”. Whether
I am saying “I can’t go talk to that person.” or “They can’t do that.”
When we say we or someone else can’t do something, WE ARE DENYING THEM
AND US THE CHANGING POWER OF THE ATONEMENT! Christ’s gospel is the
gospel of change! He didn’t suffer in the garden and die on the cross,
so you could say you can’t do something. He suffered and died so you
could say “YOU CAN!” Through him we can do anything! When we are
obedient to Him and his teachings our mindset changes from “I can’t”
or “They can’t” to “How CAN I…” or “How CAN they..” The Atonement
enables us. With God we can do all things He has commanded of us. He
has commanded us to share His gospel. So I CAN go talk to that person.

“For perfect love casteth out all fear.” -Moroni 8:16

Look there is that love again!

I am grateful for the chance I have to learn and grow in the Lord! I
know that when we trust in Him we can do all things! I love this
restored gospel. I love the peace and direction it gives us. I know
that God’s plan is perfect. I love the Book of Mormon. There is power
in its words! I love you all! I am grateful for all your love and
support!

A Christ Centered Life

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great week and that you all are doing well! The past few weeks have been good! Super busy but good! We finally have all the iPads rolled out and everyone in the mission has them now! Friday night we received a phone call from a counselor in the Bishopric asking if I could give a talk on Sunday! So this post in my notes that I used to give my talk! I was asked to give it on having a Christ Centered life and I thought, what better way to talking about having a Christ centered life then by looking at how Christ lived His! So if this seems a little jumbled I am sorry it went a lot smoother when I actually gave it! Haha

Throughout Christ’s life he gave us commandments.
– He said that if we loved him we would keep his commandments. (John14:15)
~ John 14:21 "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."
– These commandments and Christ’s teachings were meant to be acted upon.
– Through our obedience to them, they will change us and help us to become like our Father in Heaven.
– Following Christ is not something we can do half-heartedly but a way of life that requires our best effort.

Sacrament

He provided us the sacrament as a way to always remember him and the covenants we have made with him.
– In the ordinance of the sacrament we promise to always remember Him and always keep His commandments.

Pray

Christ also taught us that "Men ought always to pray." (Luke 18:1)
– Like He did when we prayed, we pray to Heavenly Father, and we conclude our prayers in the name of Christ.
– We can pray for lots of things, guidance, comfort, the needs of others, protection, help in sharing the gospel, gratitude, the list can go on.
– We are instructed to have personal prayers frequently and that we should pray as families daily. – You have a Father in Heaven who loves you and wants to hear from you!

Serving Others

– Christ has also commanded that we should care for the poor and needy.
– There are many ways we can do this.
– One way is through fasting.
– When we fast we go without food or drink for 2 consecutive meals and then donate the funds we would have used for those 2 meals to be used here locally to help those in need of some assistance.
– When we fast with pure intent we not only help those around us but we also can receive a spiritual feast.

Lost Sheep

Christ often taught in parables. One of the greatest and most familiar, is the parable of the lost sheep.
– He taught us that we need to go out of our way to rescue those who have strayed, member or non-member, they are all our Brothers and Sisters.
– This should be motivated by our love for those around us, Christ taught that we should "…Love thy neighbor as thyself." (Matt 22:39)
– He also said: "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." (John 13:34-35)

Scripture Study

Christ taught that we should study the scriptures.
– In John 5:39 he said "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
– In 3 Nephi he also said "And now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently…"
– Through His prophet Nephi we have been promised that when we "[feast] upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." (2 Nephi 31:20)

Conclusion

– In Doctrine & Covenants 130 we read:
"20 There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated.
21 And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated."
– When we strive to live these commandments we are blessed. Not only with temporal and spiritual things, but with a change of heart. We are blessed with a desire to continue to be obedient to these commandments, as well as with a better understanding and appreciation for the Atoning Sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ.

I would like to leave you with my testimony that I know this work is true! I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God! I love that book with all my heart! I have come to know of what a great blessing it is to read and study and share it with others! I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that by the Power of God he was able to translate the Book of Mormon! I also know that Christ’s authority to act in his name is again upon the earth! I grateful for the sacrifice of many people who have made this Restoration of the fullness of the gospel possible! I am grateful for our Savior’s atoning sacrifice and for the ability to start new. I am grateful that we have the opportunity to have eternal families! I could not imagine heaven without my family! I love you all and I am grateful for all the love and support you give me! I leave these words with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Transferred To The Land Of Powell

HELLO EVERYONE! I have been transferred to the area where I served in the first week of my mission, when I was with the assistants! I am in Powell! No I’m not an assistant, they moved the assistant area, but it is so I can be closer to the mission home and the mission office! (They are in the ward boundaries.) Elder Boaz was transferred as well to Chillicothe, OH! The Zone Leaders and I switched places! iPads are going good! Friday we set up ours and the assistants iPads and we have been using them ever since! Last week I learned all about what my new assignment as a Technology Specialist entails! Haha we are like the second set of assistants almost! They are rolling the iPads out in phases so initially when we get the iPads we will not being using Facebook yet. The first phase we will just be using them for studying and teaching, second phase is moving all of the area information and our planning online. After we do that we will then being using the iPads as a proselyting tool! This could take months it could take weeks, it all depends on how fast our mission moves threw the various steps associated with each phase! You will be able to see my page and friend me I will give my details on that when we cross that bridge. I am not District Leader anymore. That would be way too much to handle! Powell is a lot like a wooded South Jordan, with big houses and such! Our apartment is like any plain old apartment! We are on the top floor and the view from the window by my desk consists of the Target across the street! My new companion is Elder Caldwell from Ogden, UT! Since we have been here we have not been able to teach anyone yet. The one appointment we did have rescheduled to today and then rescheduled again to Thursday! So we shall see about that! We hope to meet the rest of the investigators this week plus with rolling out the iPads this week and Mini Missions coming up next week it’s going to keep us be busy! Which is good! Yesterday we had another music fireside. And anything and everything that could go wrong during it, did! First the videos started playing without sound, then during one of the musical numbers one of the mic’s died and then the projector decided it didn’t want to connect to the computer anymore! Haha but overall it went well! Other than that not too much has happened! I am still in the same zone as I was in Worthington so that’s pretty funny too! I love you all and I am glad everyone is well! Thank you for all the support you give me!

Along with that I have been called as the Technology Specialist for the mission! I am so excited to help incorporate an aspect that is a huge part of my life and my talents into the work! It is a very exciting change! Along with the iPads I am helping out any way I can with anything technology in mission including in the office! I am doing all of this while still keeping my full time missionary work load! SUPPPER BUSY! But like I said it is going to be a great opportunity! I love you all and I hope you all are doing well!

#BecauseHeLives

Hello Family! I am glad everyone is having fun! This week was full of exchanges! Transfers is this week for some reason! And then next transfer is 7 weeks! So I am not sure what that is all about! I do think I am going to be transferred but we shall see! Sorry I forgot to mention that! Easter we spent it with the Wright Family. They are a newly wed couple that are super awesome and take good care of us. They have fed me here more than any other family on my mission. They have fed me like 7 times?? Probably more than that. They let us watch conference at their home and fed us dinner and it was Brother Wrights Birthday! So That was fun! CONFERENCE WAS AMAZING! I LOVED ALLL OF THE TALKS, But if I had to pick a few I would say Elder Christoffersons, Elder Holland, President Eyrings, and President Packers! I LOVE how the family was the focus this conference! It made me sooo grateful for my family and how lucky I am to have them. Basically my whole mission has made me super grateful for my family and friends! I did get your Easter Package so thank you! Elder Boaz LOVED the Christus statue! Wednesday was Zone Training Meeting and then I went on an Exchange with Elder Taggart from good ol’ Tooele! I FINISHED THE BOOK OF MORMON AND I HAVE STARTED OVER! SO GOAL ACHIEVED! This weeks goal we have made a huge list of people see and places to knock so the goal is to contact ALL OF THEM! THIS PAST WEEK WE ALSO LOST A POTENTIAL INVESTIGATORS DOG! We knocked on their door and they answered and their dog ran out, peed on a tree and ran down the road! And then the person we were there to see ran down the road after it! So We just awkwardly stood there for a while and then ran off after them! haha! We got a return appointment so it was okay! haha! The best thing I ate?! The members make such good food here it’s hard to pick! Sister Wright made Mozzarella Burgers that were super good!

 

If you haven’t seen this video yet watch it now! Its from¬†helives.mormon.org!

Now that you have seen that video also watch this video!

 

 

Both videos leave a powerful testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and all that he has done for us! This Easter Season I would like you to consider all the things Christ has done for you! I would also like to remind you of some of the things He did for you! Lets go to Alma chapter 7 verses 11-13:

11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.

12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.

13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.

Christ has done so much more for us that just suffer for our sins. He has felt every pain and affliction that He may better know how to help us! And in turn when we help and aid others He also feels that aid and support (See President Eyring’s General Conference address). I pray that we may all remember all that Christ as done for us and all that is possible #BecauseHeLives! I love you all very much and I love this gospel and I am so beyond grateful for it because it has given me the joy of knowing each and every one of you!

Change in the Air!

Sorry this is 2 posts in one, one from last week and one from this week! SORRY!!
What a week! It has been a difficult one that is for sure! But hey! That is how it goes some times! A few things before I forget! Feb 11th 2016 is my official release date. And I had my follow up appointment today and everything looks good, but they want to do a follow-up x-ray in 6 months to make sure nothing else happens! I think I passed my stone on Tuesday? or Wednesday?? I don’t remember but I didn’t even feel it! I almost flushed it! haha it was about 3mm big. So it wasn’t too bad. The doctor said it was made of Calcium. OH AND I JUST WAS CALLED TO BE A DISTRICT LEADER!!!! AHHHHH!!!!! YIKES! It is definitely going to be a growing experience I am excited and nervous for it! I just want to serve those in my district the best that I can and do what is best for them!

Also during transfer weeks you can send things to the mission office and they will forward it to the correct spot, even packages! As long as it is shipped USPS. But I do not know if I am being transferred yet! Just that I am becoming a District Leader! The cold hasn’t actually been too bad! Its kind of funny because the last few days have been in the high 20’s- low 30’s and it has felt WARM! The best thing about my mission so far is how much I have grown to love the Book of Mormon. It truly is the word of God. It is an amazing book and I just LOVE IT! Nope no word about getting iPads, every time they give us a date they push it back so they’ve (President) stopped telling us until it actually happens. Another Elder in the mission and I have been made unofficial tech missionaries though, President has ask that him and I go to every Musical Fireside to set everything up and take it all down, ie the projector mac etc. and he has us run it all during the firesides, as well has he has us do it for Zone Conferences and other meetings. So that has been kind of cool! My Goal for this week is to survive! And now to seek out guidance from our Heavenly Father about how I can be the best leader I can be and how I can best serve my district! Its an exciting change that is for sure! I love you all and I miss you loads!

Holy cow! So many people getting married! Wait wait wait! SYDNI IS GETTING MARRIED?!?! Wow! Thats awesome! I can’t believe it has been a year! It is SOOO crazy to think about! March 11th is my official one year mark!!! TIME HAS FLOWN BY LIKE CRAZY!!! Today we had Choir practice and I had to drive through my first area to get to it and it was crazy to see and think back on how I was there a year ago! A lot of it has changed in just a year! Time is sure flyin’!

My new companion! His name is Elder Boaz! He lived in Springedale, Arkansas before he came out but he is originally from the Marshall Islands! He is awesome! I love him a lot already! He is that super chill, laid back, Polynesian style I became so accustomed too! Love it! He has been out for 14 months, he came out the December before I did! My goal for this week is to get through it! haha! Nah just to successfully teach District Meeting! I have NO IDEA what to teach it on! So I am praying pretty hard for some guidance! We got a lot of snow last week! But it has been in the high 40’s the past few days (#HeatWave #ShortSleeveWeather!) so most of it has melted! and it is supposed to be in the 50’s this week so that is going to be SOOO nice! We are also going to the Temple on Thursday! I am SOOO excited! It will be great! We still share a car with the Dublin Elders, Elder Clark (Found out he is my 7th Cousin! He comes from the Gillette family! Yes the Tooele Gillettes!) and Elder Taggart (He is from Tooele!) So both good Elders! Being District Leader has been good so far! I now collect numbers Sunday evenings, and I teach District Meetings on Wednesday and I conduct exchanges with every elder in the District, (Our district consists of the Dublin and Worthington Wards) and I assist and serve the members of my district in any other way I can! I also conduct Baptismal interviews! Its pretty scary because we literally sit as Judges of Israel! The best thing about last week was probably transfers, I love being able to see all the missionaries I used to work with! OH SPEAKING OF TRANSFERS! Elder Peterson and Elder Wright got put as companions again! (They were companions before Elder Wright was with me.) They are Zone Leaders in Huber Heights! So lucky! I wish they were my Zone Leaders! But that’s okay! We’ve got some pretty good ones here too! I can’t think of anything else I need We are doing pretty good! I did get my garments and they fit great! Thank you much! Things are going well! I love you all so much and I pray all is going well!

A Trip To The Hospital!

I don’t have a lot of time today! But as most of you know I decided to take a tour of the nearest hospital Saturday morning at 4:30 in the morning! Just kidding… Kind of! xP Long story short I have a few kidney stones! I am still waiting to pass them but¬†things are going well! I have not let it slow me down that is for sure! That same day I had a baptism for Brother Thomas! I originally met Brother and Sister Thomas when I was with the Assistants at the beginning of my mission! Then when I was transferred to this ward I was able to work with them again! It was an amazing experience to see the progress he has made to follow the example of Christ and be baptized! It was definitely an exciting day!

Sunday we also had the chance to have a missionary musical fireside to invite investigators and everyone else to hear musical numbers along with videos and talks! We do them once a month, and its a great opportunity to feel the spirit! I also talked to my Mission President about it and we are going to start recording the audio for the musical numbers! That is going to be pretty exciting too!

 

I love you all and I hope everyone is doing amazing! ¬†I am doing well don’t worry! They will come to pass! (Pun intended!) lol Love you all!

All About That Missionary Flow!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is well! I just copied the letter I sent my family this week! Because I am short on time because we had Choir practice for an upcoming missionary fireside! Love you all!

 

Wait wait wait! JaNessa and Landon GOT MARRIED?!?! WHY DON’T PEOPLE TELL ME THESE THINGS?!?! THAT IS SOOO AWESOME! I am so excited for Makayla and Jordan! Wait Rhett has less that 2 weeks?!?! WHY AM I NOT GETTING WEDDING INVITES! CARLOS AND SARAH HAVE BEEN THE ONLY ONES! Well That will be really good! Dad told me about Sam a while ago. But thank you for the update! Glad someone is keeping me updated on them because heaven knows they suck at doing it themselves… Except Kacy… She is getting better! JAAAYYY KAYYY LOVE YOU ALL!!!! But seriously tho… I hope they get rain soon!

Sherry is doing good! We FINALLY had our first lesson with her this week! We invited her to Read and Pray about the Book of Mormon and She accepted and she said she would be baptized when she came to know of truth of the things we shared with her! Elder Gardner is doing awesome! He is a very good missionary! This week we helped out Brother Horstmeier! He is a member from Germany and he is a temple sealer! Such an awesome and very good man! Love him! After we helped him, He and his wife took us to lunch! It was very nice of them! I am still just amazed to see the my love for the Book of Mormon grow. Before more my mission and even during the beginning of it I was always really miffed when someone started talking about how great the Book of Mormon was because I was just like “So what?! Its just another book of scripture!” Boy was I so wrong. But now as I have gained that desire to read it I have began to see the greatness of it! I love learning the stories and the principles being taught in the story! My overall love for the Savior has grown so much! AHHH I just love it all! And each time I learn something new, whether it be a basic principle or a detail of a specific doctrine I just love how it ALL fits together in the Plan of Salvation! ALL OF IT! EVERY SINGLE THING WE DO IN THIS CHURCH CAN BE BACKED UP WITH THE SCRIPTURES!! It just so awesome!
The best part of the week was being able to go on exchanges with Elder Peterson and learning from him! That was also the hardest part of the week because we went to their meal appointment that night and it was with the Spanish Missionaries and a family that only spoke Spanish! So I was the ONLY one who did not speak it in conversational terms. Elder Peterson was a Spanish missionary for a while so he speaks it too! I was surprised at how well I followed the conversation and how much I understood, but I just didn’t have to vocabulary to add to the conversation! So that was good! We had our Zone activity last week and we had a Ping Pong/ Fusball/ and Pool tournament at the Institute last Monday! Best thing I ate that is a hard one! But I did love the food we ate on the exchange! Mexican Tortas! SOOO GOOD! It is a Mexican sandwich! Yummy! Tuesday was a normal day! Full of walkin’ talkin’ and teachin’! That is when we also taught Sherry! The BoM Challenge is good! I have gotten a little behind because its a lot of reading and it has been pretty busy the last few days but nothing I can’t catch on with some effort! So my hump day… I don’t know when it is exactly! Good question! Because my¬†Ecclesiastical license expires on February 11th 2016! But I came out March 11th 2014! Soooo I assume I go home the Feb buuuut I don’t know! Ask Bro Miller (Shawn Miller’s dad) if he can look up my release date maybe?!?¬†Oh whale! HOLY CRAP HAS IT REALLY BEEN ALMOST A YEAR!?!?! It feels like I have been out FOREVER but it also feels like time has flown by sooo fast and that I have done so much in just this years time! That’s why it feels like forever! That crazy missionary paradigm shift! Days feel like weeks and weeks feel like days! Anyways! I love you all and I miss you all tons!

The Power of the Book of Mormon!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has had an amazing week! Things here are going slow but I just love the members here!, they are awesome! They are all so willing to help us, whether by feeding us or letting us teach lessons to them or going to lessons with us! So that has been a big help! THE WEATHER HERE HAS BEEN SO RANDOM! I thought Utah’s weather was random but holy heavens it is nothing compared to here! I took a picture a few days ago of it snowing with BLUE SKY! Not just a little blue sky practically ALL blue sky! And one day it will be in the 40’s and the next day it will be in the 20’s plus wind chill! Just SOOOO Random!

Snowing with Blue Sky!

 

So Taiya err… Sister Cheney recently challenged me (I know she asked it in her mass email but she asked me directly too) to read the Book of Mormon with her before she returns home from her mission. At that point I had realized I had been getting out of habit so I decided to do it. I have loved doing that and but I realized I wanted to get more out of it and I wasn’t sure how. WELL! This past week in Zone Training Meeting they announced that as a mission we have been invited to read the Book of Mormon and finish by April 20th. BUT that we are to also pick one of the 2 options (See Photo) and mark the copy of Book of Mormon they gave us in one of those 2 ways! Well I didn’t want to start over because of the momentum I had with reading it because of Taiya’s Challenge. I am now in Mosiah 24 and I have NEVER gotten that far by myself! So it was big for me! And SO I decided to start over marking one way and keeping going where I am at in Mosaih and to start over and read with the mission and mark in the other way!! So I am reading twice a day at least 7 pages from the Book of Mormon for a total of 14 pages a day. And it literally has been the best thing for me! I have never loved the Book of Mormon more and I know now more than ever, the truthfulness it teaches. I always knew it was true but never fully understood the impact it could have on my life by reading it daily! Even though things may be difficult or get difficult I seem to carry on with a more cheerful attitude regardless of the situation! It is truly an amazing thing! I love it! I invite all of you to pick one of the ways and try it as you read! It has definitely helped me a lot! Well I love you a lot and I miss you even more and I know that as you take to time to read the Book of Mormon more in your life it will DEFINITELY help you grow closer to the savior!
