JANUARY 9, 2017
So I can't see the photos when you share them through google...haha but I saw like a couple of them cause they were popping up and it looked like you had lots of fun! I wish I could have gone with you guys! hahaha my cheeks are suuuuper sore from the bike. I can't wait to see snow! I'm super duper excited! But I still got a while :/
Yeah so I'm back in the House by the temple, where I entered the mission so it's fun to be back, just with new missionaries! Today we had a guy pay for us at Walmart at the Guy was like talking with us and said "I need you to take this money, people did this for my kid all the time in the mission, you have no idea how much this means to me" and he gave us each 20 bucks and it touched my heart a ton just all the blessings I've recieved out here. And you all have been awfully generous with me. My heart is FULL of gratitude to everyone who has blessed me with the Things I have. Thank you for everything you and dad have done for me! Love you tons mom!:)
I hope Disneyland was Awesome! Super Jealous of you guys! I've also heard that Utah is getting DUMPED on with a ton of snow! Also, thanks Adam for sending that awesome gift and book haha I loved it! That's super cool! Lucky you guys! It's not too bad it's like Chilly in the mornings and warm in the afternoon. This week has been great! The Area I'm in is like 95 percent Hispanic and 5 percent white. It's great! There's a ton of work. We've been trying to find solid investigators, we can find a lot but like most of them seem to not answer the door when we are there. Haha it's a little disappointing.
Me and Elder Ramon are killin it biking the streets of downtown Mesa. It's super funny all the stuff that happens. He's from Mapleton and he's super funny, he's waiting for his visa here in Mesa til he goes to Mexico.
But we are teaching these two awesome families! One is named the A_______ Family and the other is the L________Family. The A_______ Family was a referall from the Lights of Christmas at the temple and they are so great! We've read in the Book of Mormon with them and they came to church! It was awesome they loved it and we are going to be having lessons with them as much as possible! They go to their Mom's house every other week. But I love that Fam.
The L_______ Family is a family that we also have been teaching, we taught them the plan of salvation and focused on priesthood authority and on Baptism and they totally understood it! At the end all the kids were like "I wanna get baptized!" Haha it was great.
I read this Scripture in one of my personal studies and I just love this scripture it's in Alma 34
32 For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors.
33 And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed.
I know that this is our time to prove to our loving Heavenly Father that we are worthy to live in his presence! I know that we must humble ourselves and repent to be found worthy to be in he presence of our Heavenly Father. I love being here trying my best to help others reach that goal! And I pray and hope that at the last day I'll be up there with you all in the Celestial kingdom! :)
Love you all soooo much! Have a great week!:)
