Week #66 10-26-15

Hey everyone! So this week was really good. The weather is cooling off and it is actually cold out! Well at least to me! SO the members we are living with are actually moving. So they are pretty much moved out so we have the whole house to our selves! We throw parties like every night! haha

So this week we did a lot of service. One morning we woke up and went to help his guy in our ward chop down a tree in their front yard. It was actually really fun, because we haven't done service in a long time and I miss doing stuff like that! haha But I almost died! It was awesome! The guy was up in the tree cutting a big limb off and I was holding the rope tied to it. My job was to pull the limb as it fell so it didn't hit the house or the fence. So as he was sawing I started to pull and the limb snapped and started to fall. It was then that I realized I was standing right underneath the limb! haha One of the little branches whipped me in the face on the way down and I turned my back to the falling limb. When I turned around, the thick limb was like six inches away from my face! It was crazy! I am pretty sure Heavenly Father was looking out for me because I probably would have died! haha

The other two days we did service, we were just moving people! We helped the members we live with move some stuff to their new house, and it is freaking sweet! He is a Contractor so he builds homes all the time and they built this one and it didn't sell so they decided to move into it and sell the one we live in! Also, there is a family in our who lived in AZ for a while. They are super cool and they grew up on Mesa. It was fun to talk to them about AZ and reminisce!

Well that is pretty much my week! Thanks for all the support and love! Love you guys!

Oh also, Elder Van Wagoner, My trainer, came down this week for a baptism, so it was fun to see him!

Week #64 10-12-15

Our area is super dead! We really don't have anyone progressing so we are just trying to find people which is really really really hard! SO yeah not to much to talk about! But the members are really cool and I am grateful for that!

Ponderizie: Alma 5:27

" Have ye walked keeping yourselves blameless before God? Could ye say, if we were called to die at this time, within yourselves, that ye have been sufficiently humble? That your garments have been cleansed and made white through the blood of Christ, who will come to redeem his people from their sins."

Love you guys! Thanks for all the prayer and support! Love yall!

Week #63 10-5-15

Service Day!

So this week was a really slow week! Elder Barrow was sick Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday so we didn't leave to much! But we did get out for some service! Also we got to watch conference which was really good! I think my favorite talk was during the Priesthood session given by Elder Anderson. I love Faith! It is such a fun topic! But I like when he said that our faith is either growing stronger, or growing weaker. And ain't that the truth! He also mentioned how faith is a gift. I never thought of Faith as a gift before, but I really like that idea. We receive faith as we strive to gain it and hold on to it! My challenge is that we hold fast to our faith, and always strive to nourish and strengthen it!

Elder Durrant gave a challenge to Ponderize. I decided to accept his challenge and this week my verse is 2 Nephi 2:6 " Wherefore redemption cometh in and through the Holy Messiah. For He is full of Grace and Truth" I love Jesus and He loves each and everyone of us! Only through him can we return to live with our Heavenly Father again!

Love you guys! Yall rock!
