What a Week!!!

what a week! Monday we almost set a members table on fire... thanks to an object lesson... then we almost set our floor on fire that night playing with fire... Tuesday we had zone training! Sister Hotchkiss and i gave a training on Urgency and Understanding our Purpose. It was fun... 🦄  Then Wednesday we went finding all day, didn't find anyone but that's alright! We had institute that night and only renee and the girls showed up so we ended up playing games all night!  Thursday we went and visited some less active members and one of them is our age and has a million and one reptiles... we got to hold geckos and lizards and it was weird... i would honestly be alright not holding them again... We had Book of Mormon study that night and kym and jimmy (mom and dad) brought grandma! we are picking grandma up as an investigator tonight! Then we had to film them for a video the mission is making! We ended up silly stringing them :) it was fun! i'll try and send the video! Friday was interesting! All of our appointments canceled.. welcome to the life of a missionary.. We had ARP that night, ARP is the addiction recovery program the church has. We are going through it with some of the members and dang is it good! We had supper out at mom and dads and then we burnt some of my clothes. its kinda a tradition to burn stuff on your like 6 month, 12 month mark and so forth but i haven't burnt anything so we did it! We are planning an epic fire for my 18 month mark! Saturday was freezing butt cold! We helped at the farmers market! got Amish donuts , YUMMMM i may or may not have had 2... We had the opportunity to go to a funeral in the afternoon. It was the last of the civil war veterans to be buried! The patriot rider bike club brought his cremated remains from oregan all the way to some Podunk town in Maine! It was really cool! A

nyways we had supper at mom and dads again. Chicken Alfredo oh how i have missed you! Saturday night we got permission to watch the General Conference Womens Broadcast! it started at 8 here, it was so stinkin good! The main point was about how we need to have a testimony founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is Faith, Repentance, Baptism by priesthood authority, the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the End. These are the essential things that we need in our life so that when we go through hard times of trial and tribulation we can fall back and rely fully upon Jesus Christ and his Atonement, because we know that the Atonement is not just for repenting and changing the bad but it is to help us at ANYtime! ​​​​​​​​​​​​

In the Book of Mormon in Alma 36:5 we read, "and now my son, Shiblon, i would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your trouble, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day. " I can promise each and everyone of you that if you put your trust in God and his timing he will help each and everyone of you through the hard times you are facing! I can bear solemn witness that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that he know and loves each one of you. I know that he sent is Son Jesus Christ to this earth to take upon himself all of our trails, afflictions and so forth. I know without a shadow of a doubt that Jospeh Smith is a Prophet of God and was called to Restore Christ's church upon the earth. He translated the Book of Mormon by Gods hand, it is the word of God along with the Bible. I have grown a great love for the Bible, they work hand in hand to help all come closer to God. I love this gospel with all of the heart and am so happy that i have had this opportunity to share what i hold dear to my heart! 

I hope you all have a great week and will try your hardest to rely fully upon the Atonement of Jesus Christ and trust God with all of your heart! 

I would love to hear from you!
