Crazy Week

Elder Hindes and I looking for mail!
First off, a BIG shout-out to my best friend Lori Joy!!!!  To all you people who don’t know who she is…I feel bad for you cuz this girl is the most amazing girl on the planet!!!!  She is so hard working and one of the most obedient and Christ-loving people I know.  And she just turned 19!!!!  Happy Birthday, Love.  Watch out Satan, here she comes!!!  She is going to serve a mission!!!  How amazing is that!!!  She will be giving a year and a half totally to the Lord.  I think wherever she goes is going to be the most blessed area EVER!!!  She has the testimony of a true disciple of Christ.  She is going to rock the stars!!!  Alma 48:17 “Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto (Lori Joy), behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.”  I know this to be true.  And if any of you want to question it…pray about it.  Let Christ show you the truth.


This week has been crazy.  Brother and Sister Call have been having some problems and Brother Call moved out of his home on Wednesday, which means we had to find another place to stay.  Luckily our ward mission leader down around the corner from us opened up his home and we will be staying with him.


On top of all the craziness, we got transfer calls.  Elder Hindes will be moving to Ammon and I will be staying in this area.  My new companion is Elder Sabett.  I don’t know anything else about him except that he came out with Elder Hindes and I will be doing the last half of his training.  I’m excited to have a new “son” and a new beginning.  Elder Hindes and I did a lot of work together and I’m grateful for what he has taught me.


Echo Neilson has a baptism date!!!  December 14th!!!!  AND she came to church this past Sunday!!!!  We will be meeting up with her and seeing what she thought!!!!  I’m so excited for her to grow in the Gospel.  She still really needs our prayers.  Her family situation is not the best but she is such a little ball of sunshine J  Thank you so much for your prayers.


Today is November 18th.  I pray I will have the strength to get through this week.

Powerful Prayer

Me and my people on Preperation Day!


So sorry I didn't write last week. I just wasn't feeling it. 


This week went by so fast!!!! I can’t believe it’s Monday!

The work is slow but our teaching pool is large. We have some amazing investigators there are just large obstacles in their way. We NEED the prayers to help them get through this. Family, Pride, Smoking, you name it and were dealing with it. Again, these are amazing people; this is what missionary work is all about. “Helping people come back to Christ. "My purpose as a missionary is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.”  This is what we do!!


Prayer is a powerful gift given to us by our most loving Heavenly Father. Think about it. It’s a two-way communication from us down here to the all-knowing, all-loving God above us! This is a power given to all men, woman, and children! IT IS REAL!!!!! So, I ask you; please join me in praying for the investigators world-wide, and specifically the wonderful children of God I have the honor of working with. I thank you for all you do for me. It’s amazing feeling and using the energy given me from your prayers. I love you all. Again, thank you.   


People we’re working with.  Please keep them in your prayers.










Alma 13:24- For behold, angels are declaring it unto many at this time in our land; and this is for the purpose of preparing the hearts of the children of men to receive his word at the time of his coming in his glory.
