Sorry I did not write last week! I didn’t really have a lot to share and kind of felt like nobody read it! haha but after being told of the uproar that went on because of the absence of a letter I apologize! But that is what the gospel of Jesus Christ is about! Repenting and making changes!
Now that I have repented time for the change!
The last few weeks have been and up and downs! Last week was pretty good! We have been working with a family that just moved into town that has wanted to come back to church! Love them they are an awesome family! We have been helping Elmer, our Amish investigator build his house! Last week we put up rain gutters and this week we helped sweep and clean out the rooms of the random pieces of siding and such! It reminded me a lot of working in Hawaii on the dorms! This last week we had Zone Conference! I LOVED IT! President and Sister Daines are just amazing! They talked to us about being consecrated missionaries, how we need to put everything aside and focus on the Lord’s work! I definitely could be better at this! It is something I am working on, Satan can be a real pain at times that is for dang sure! Overall Zone Conference had been just what I needed to carry on! I love this work and each day it is confirmed to me over and over that this really is the work of the Lord and that this is the true church of Jesus Christ! I am so grateful for the chance I have to serve our Heavenly Father and our Redeemer Jesus Christ!
Last but not least! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KACY! For those of you who don’t know her, this is one of my best friends, Kacy! She has always been an amazing friend! She is caring but isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, and give me a slapping around or two when I needed some shaping up! She has always stuck by me even when I have been a poo-poo head and have been a cruddy friend! Thank you for being there and for your example! I love you! (I would have just written this to her in an email BUUUT I don’t have her email address *cough cough*)
Anyways I love you all just as much and I am grateful for your love and support! You are all such a blessing to me! I pray for you all daily and hope you all are well! I just want to leave you all with a challenge to go out and serve someone this week! It doesn’t have to be a huge task but just serve someone. Service is the only way to love!
