This past, we got to watch the Afternoon Session of Conference it was incredible, So Clear so defined on the messages being shared. I loved all of conference, I can honestly say that conference once again has helped me alot. It is so great to hear the counsel we are given during conference and to have such a pure vehicle in which the spirit of God is so present.
In my studies as well I am in the war chapters in Alma and I think they are so important for us TODAY, they warn us of the dangers and tactics of Satan and Warn us and teach us how to Protect ourselves fully and be fortified.
Our friend Margaux hasn't been able to meet with us at all the past two weeks due to work, We have had many appointments when we do find people that fall through and been out doing finding alot. Chapping Doors, and street contacting. It's been pretty Crazy.
I was excited because I was given the opportunity to give some instruction in District Meeting, as you saw last week our district meeting is done over Skype so it was a different experience and For some reason I was super nervous. The instruction was on setting Goals, and why we have them. The meeting itself was really good.
However we are looking to do lots of service in this area, as it is much different then any other area I have served in and the Mission President has suggested to get involved in the community.
So in this regards this week was great.
I really need to keep a little Notebook for what to write about in my e-mail, I have been so dead lately on e-mail day it's like my brain shuts off.
But this week We found some ways to do service, 1. We were able to acquire some garbage picker upper things and bags so we can clear up the beach and coastal area, So that was fun and with it being shorts weather it was great to be in shorts and Mormon helping hands shirts cleaning it up, We also Began volunteering at this place called Hope. It is a soup kitchen but does so much more. It is so cool, They were so inviting and loving and when we talked to the manager lady she said they are always looking for Ideas on what they can Do to get more interaction. So we were thinking of seeing if we can get a group together and get more garbage things and clean up an Area all together. They also have a drop in Session so we have some fun ideas to help them interact with one another. Nothing beats Karaoke. I hope they have fun.
As we were out we found several new friends to begin teaching we are waiting to find when they are free to meet but Fingers Crossed.
This e-mail isn't very long as I had to e-mailso not much has happened since that.
We did go on exchange though with Dumbartonwhich was nice, I learnt alot from Elder Taylor. He is a good missionary.
Coming up this week is Moves Call, Me and Elder Starr both just got here so It'll be weird if we get a phone call. I don't think we will, but it happens.
BE PREPARED ALWAYS AND ALWAYS TURN TO THE LORD IN ALL THINGS.
One of my favourite scriptures is " trust in the Lord with all your might and lean not unto thine own understanding, and in all ways acknowledge him" That is paraphrased, but the message is the same.
The Lord is in all times in the control of everything, Trust him, and do as the profits say PREPARE YE PREPARE YE.
The Lord's time is coming, we must all be prepared. I know that it will come and if the prophet and his apostles are telling us to prepare I know that I must prepare.
SHINE BRIGHT YOUR LIGHT,
AND AS YOU DO, YOU WILL NEVER FRIGHT.
THE LORD IS IN THE LEAD AND BIDS US TO ADVANCE
AS WE FOLLOW THIS COUNSEL, WE STAND A FIGHTING CHANCE.
Hearken to the words of the Prophets and believe in their words they are here to help us. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God, I know that the Apostles have all been called of God and I know the Lord would not warn us so vigorously unless we needed it.
Take heed brethren.
I love all of you.
