Life is a box of chocolates…..

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!

Chillin Like a Villan

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!

Like Tamater Without The Ta

Hey y’all! Hope that you all had a very merry Christmas and that everything is going good for yall. This week has been pretty fantastic and we have been able to accomplish a lot.  miracles happen I can testify of that. This Thursday we were walking after trackting a neighborhood and we saw a couple walking and before we could start to walk over to them they call us over and just tell us how they want to learn about Jesus and grow closer as the family. We say Heck Yea! We went taught them a lesson and they both came to church Sunday (for the one hour that we had) and to a Baptism of a members little girl and everything was super powerful and they were really into it. We are hopin to commit them to baptism tonight and I can see good things coming of it. The Lord is at work here because while talking to them we found out that Tuesday night while biking to the apartment I had heard someone calling out but looking around I saw no one so I kept riding. We found out that It was the same people that saw us and wanted to talk. They were put back in our way and I am so grateful for that. I see good things. So besides that the weather has finally decided to act like winter and its been cold and snowy. Luckily we are only catching the edge of the storm. But I am definitely seeing a snowbattle of epic proportions in the near future. So today for the spiritual thought I have a strange thing that goes on where I sit back to rest at lunch or at night and scenes from Disney movies play in my head. Its weird I know but this week the Line from cars whee Mater is doing his backwards driving thing he says “I don’t need to know where I’m going only need to know where I’ve been.” I was thinking about that and all the scriptures that speak of remembering the captivity of the fathers and of the Lords blessings. I realized that as we look back and see everything that the Lord has blessed us with that we can look and not be scared of moving forward because the Lord has taken us this far he’s not going to just drop us now. I have seen this these past few months as I am nearing the halfway point in my mission, I was wanting to see how I changed and see where if any progress was made. And I’m telling you that as I have done that it has given me more confidence that the Lord is mindful because I have definitely came along way from 11 months ago when I first came out. I am grateful for that and at this new years time as you look back look for specific times that the Lord has blessed you and take the time to thank him for that. I love you and Hope you have a happy new year!

Reset!

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!
