This past week was so incredible! We got to have interviews with President Brinkerhoff and Sister Brinkerhoff which was the best thing ever. :) Also, we had a fantastic Zone Companionship Study this past Friday. It was great! We talked about the importance of involving the members and how NOTHING we do will truly be successful without them. CALLING ALL MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH: THE MISSIONARIES NEED YOU! PLEASE HELP! :) Great blessings in store! :) Also, I got to go on 2 exchanges this past week! One with Elder Bertoch (Which was absolutely incredible! It was so fun to be with him because we were former companions and of course, he is a great missionary and a hard worker! We made some great progress in our area!) and Elder Carter (I got to go to his area and it was SO fun! It was an incredible growing experience for both of us. I love that Elder!). It was SUPER hot...... except, when I was with Elder Bertoch it POORED rain for about 20 min. We were absolutely soaked and it was fantastic! Also, a family let us in when we were walking around and we are going to start teaching their son! Man.... it has been such a great week! Elder Adkins and I have been having a ton of fun laughing and working hard! The Zone is doing well except we need to get more people out to church!
In the book of Proverbs it says, "The wicked flee when no man persueth but
the righteous are bold as a lion." It is my invitation to all of us to be
BOLD as a LION. Share the Gospel with someone this week! When we decide to
share the Gospel, it isn't so much whether that person needs the missionaries
but more so, does that person need more love, compassion, comfort and guidance in their lives. As soon as we ask ourselves
that, we will know EXACTLY who needs the Gospel. :) The church is true. I know
that with all my heart and soul. Joseph Smith was a prophet and his legacy will
stand forever. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, the one who makes
change possible and the rock that will take us to God IF we let Him. It's my
testimony that God loves us and as we bring that love to those around us, WE
will love Him, Christ, and others more.
