This week was a crazy week.
Mariah is doing ok. She is going to court on the 21st because she found a drug pipe in her apartment and that day the cops raided her apartment. Its a mad world. She wasn't using it and has been clean for years. We are praying they don't put her on probation. She has a lot of anger built up. We are helping her work threw that and to use the Atonement to help her forgive those who have hurt her. Please pray for her. She needs them.
We have 3 baptismal dates! Kathleen is working for the 23rd. Cody Ray is working for the 30th and Mariah is working for October 6th. These people need your prayers!!!
We had transfers this week and picked up another companion. Elder Floyd. He is going home on the 13th. He is from North Carolina and his family has owned a huge plot of land forever. He is a good missionary. Really good at talking with people. We had to ask the Christansins for an extra bed and he is sleeping on a camping cot that Brother Christansen uses. Hes a funny kid but is very ready to go home.
We had a few changes in the zone. Everybody is very happy. I LOVE these missionaries. We are having a zone training this Tuesday and will be taking a zone picture. There is a total of 17 missionaries until Elder Floyd leaves. 3 sets of Elders and 5 sets of Sisters. Sister missionaries are amazing! We are so blessed to have some of the best Sisters in the mission! The only Elders are us, and our District leaders and there companions. So really we are a Relief Society !!!! HAHAHA I love it!!!
This is the key to missionary work!!!
If so, his faith and hope is vain, for none is acceptable before God, save the meek and lowly in heart; and if a man be meek and lowly in heart, and confesses by the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ, he must needs have charity; for if he have not charity he is nothing; wherefore he must needs have charity.
And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail—
But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
Your Brother in Christ.
