Howdy hey everyone! This has been a fantastic week and at the end of this week a fantastic transfer. So much has happened and time has gone by way too fast for me to even want to think about! Missionaries only really have four days a week Monday (pday) Thursday(weekly planning) Friday (district mtg) and Sunday(church) the rest of it all really just blurs together in periods of teaching sleep walking and the mail coming. Then before you know it six weeks gone by and you are waiting anxiously all day to find out where in Oklahoma you are going to do the same with only with different people! Its fantastic Love it to death! This week has been really fantastic the Lord is blessing us in so many ways that it isn’t even funny! I love it here in Seminole and if the Lord would let me I would stay here my entire mission. The people here are fantastic this truly is the promise land! Interesting story this week is of Duck Hearts. Why? Because thats what was for dinner on Sunday. Good stuff mater! And now for a spiritual message. I love the movie Forest Gump for a lot of reasons but this week I was thinking about Forest and Bubba in the trenches and Bubba says in effect ” I lean on your back and you lean on mine and neither of us have to sleep with our head in the mud” That is a life lesson more than anything I can think of. If we support one another and have eachothers backs then none of us have to sleep in the filth of the world and we can all keep our heads clean. Love you all and hope that you have a fantastic week!
Hey! How are you guys doing! This week has been a pretty fantastic week! Been super cold outside. Oklahoma bless its heart has no sense of whats supposed to happen when what kind of weather is happening. When the sun is out and There is no snow on the ground the high is not supposed to be 30 degrees in my opinion. But hey its a party! My birthday was pretty good just a regular day in the hood. I did get to miss most of district meeting taking another missionary to a doctors appointment and that was a really good present but besides that I got a pair of rocking suspenders and a wallet from an awesome family here the Riege folks they are a rocking missionary lovin backwoods town people who I just love the stuffin out of! Then this week we were going through our member lists and we go to visit a less active family. We have no idea who they are and apparently they were less active for a long time. But we get there and she tells us that she has been praying on if to come back to church or not and then we called her the next day. Now she is committed and a half! We are going to start trying to teach her non-member husband and get them to the temple to be joined for eternity! Love it the Lord is a miracle worker and I have never been happier This week I just wanted to leave you with the scripture Ether 10:28 And never could be a people more blessed than were they, and more prospered by the hand of the Lord. And they were in a land that was choice above all lands, for the Lord had spoken it. Seminole is truly the promised land and I am truly blessed to be here “…For the Lord HAS spoken it!” Love you all! If you have read this far please email and tell me your favorite food! I would love to hear from all y’all! Tell your friends The gospel is true the Book is blue! Have a great week!
Hey there everyone! Hope that your New Year has gone maybe a little better than mine has. Mines been good all except for the broken nose. Thats a bummer but don’t worry it was able to be straightened out and I still have my stunning good looks (and a little bit of pride but I’m working on that). These last few weeks have been a little slow but with the Holidays out the way things should be picking back up and we might be a little less bored. Time for a shout out to my Parental’s. They will have been married for 21 years this Thursday! (Cheers!) And then their Greatest Joy came two years and a day later when I entered the World to their loving arms 19 years to the day this Friday.(Clapping) Then My younger brother he turns 18 then too. (low level cheer). Haha JK just love the stuffing out of them this week for me! Like said there is not much to report on this week so into the spiritual thought on the time to start again. THe entire atonement of Christ is centered on our having the ability to choose and be forgiven. Helaman 14:30 tells us- 30 And now remember, remember, my brethren, that whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; and whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; for behold, ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves;for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free. We choose for ourselves whether we are happy or not and now is the general time to look back see where we can improve and seek to be better! So git ‘er done that way we can got ‘er did! Love you all and hope that you have a fantastic week!
