Wow! It seems to me like this week just flew by. This email will be a little shorter than the others because there isn't too much to write about. Our week was a little rough, but it was good. My ponderize scripture this week was Numbers 14: 11 "And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?" Here the Lord has done all of these marvelous things for the children of Isreal and yet, they still don't have the faith or trust to do the things He wants them to. How long until they believe me? Not how long until they believe in me? This is a question that we should ask ourselves as well. If we do believe Him, then we have full trust in Him with anything He will ask us to do.
Monday not much happened. The most exciting thing was when Elder Smith fell out of a tree a few feet and may have a hair-line fracture in his hand. We still need to get it checked out.
Tuesday we helped at a Food Bank. Then we had a good lesson with Jim. We answered a lot of his questions, some he has had for a long time. Then we had a lesson with the Asberry’s and we invited them to be baptized. They said they weren't ready yet, but they will be soon.
Wednesday we had District Meeting and then did some service at a member’s house. We later found out that the daughter of the Asberry’s told her friend at school that she wants to be baptized. We are so pumped.
Thursday we had a brief lesson with Adam. Then not much else happened. A lot of appointments fell through this week.
Friday we weekly planned and then the craziest thing that happened was at dinner. We saw these three cats that would climb up the sliding screen door whenever you walked up to it. It was pretty funny. I also met a guy who was the president of a biker gang in New York.
Saturday we saw a couple less-active members. Then we helped a member clean up his daughter’s bridal shower. That was about it.
Sunday not much happened either other than church, which is always good.
Well I hope everyone had a good week and will have a great one up ahead. Thank you all for your support and I pray for you guys constantly. I love you all and hope you all have opportunities this next week to share the gospel with someone. It is an amazing thing, so why should we keep it to ourselves, right? Share it with everyone! Thank you and talk to y'all next time.
