Well this week, our Bishop came to all of the classes during the last hour of church and said that the ward needs to feed the missionaries more. Well the congregation reacted. We had two different batches of fried chicken made for us that very day. Oh, how I love the South.
I am attaching some photos from our trip to Myrtle Beach: Huntington State Park last week. Enjoy!
This week, we were able to rely upon the Lord more. Things were hard, but that's just life. Sometimes, you roll out of bed and its a hard day, but too bad. You got to keep going on and smiling. Sometimes, we have people tell us the most ridiculous things, so all we do is just smile. Smile at life!
Our prophet, President Monson, said " Were it not for challenges to overcome and problems to solve, we would remain much as we are, with little or no progress towards our goal of eternal life." I know this is so true!
"Heavenly Father has organized our journey through life to be a test of our character. We are exposed to both good and evil influences and then given the moral agency to choose for ourselves which path we will take." - Elder Richard J. Mayes.
Well, I am getting off my soap box now. Fun updates. Destiny and Infiniti are doing great! Their Mother and Sister now want to join them and be baptized. It's amazing to see their lives change as the gospel enters it. "True doctrines, understood, changes attitudes and behaviors. The study of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior." -President Packer. When we focus more on the gospel, our natures are changed and we become more happier and lighter in heart.
Funny Moment: The power of Women: Well we were teaching two men and recently the Elders started teaching them instead of us. The Elders mentioned to us in passing that it was hard to get a hold of them and that they wanted them to come to church but that they weren't sure if they would come. So we got our phone out and called them. They answered right away and agreed to coming to church. They came an hour later!
I love ya'll and I love being a missionary!
Will ya'll all smile today? I know that if you do it will brighten someone's day, if not your own!
