I don't have too much time to write this week so this is going to be pretty quick.
This week wasn't too eventful, but more missionary work! And I am learning new things everyday from my mistakes, from the members, from my companion, from my amazing president, and from everyday experiences.
Something that was kind of sad, but a big learing experince was that Eli didn't get baptized this week like planned. It definitely put a damper on our day but it taught me a lot about why I am here. I am not here to convert people the fastest way possible to get a number on a page. I am here to share the good message of salvation. I know that we kind of pushed with her and we realized later that she logically knew it was the right thing for her to do but she isn't converted yet by the spirit. So we will keep working that wonderful lady and bring her closer to know her savior Jesus Christ.
And we may or may not have had to eat a whole cake by ourselves. Ok, sorry, anyways.
The scripture I want to share this week is Colossians 1:22-23. I love this scripture because I know that through Christ anything is possible. and through him we can be made perfectly clean. Through repentance we can recieve forgiveness and through baptism and the sacrament, we can be made clean once again. What a perfect gospel this is and the love of God is around us everyday! Oh how I love it.
Well, I hope you all are STOKED for conference! It's going to be an amazing weekend! We get to listen to our prophet! The literal words of our father in Heaven.
Love you all!
