Put Yourself In My Place For Just One Day

Hey there again everybody! its weird to think another month has come and gone and now on this bright march afternoon.. hold up real quick, it happens to be February 29th! so a quick little shout out to my Sister for her birthday that she only gets every 4 years!

Anyways, i dont have too much to say. the work has been progressing, its been an ok week.

sorry to sound all depressed this week everyone, but this week hasnt been the easiest. i got called out by a couple of the ward members and its just been kind of irritating to me. you know? like im out here away from my family, and thats hard enough as it is. so to have people on my back doesnt make it any easier. but ill be alright everyone! ive got a companion who is a little on the quieter side but thats ok! because then it gave me a chance to just kind of vent and voice my opinion for a minute.

overall though the week went well. yesterday, even with all that going on, church was still really good! we had 3 less actives there, 2 investigators, and our brand spanking new recent convert as well, and he received the priesthood! it was a good day.

the scripture this week comes from romans 8:11

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from thedead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the deadshall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit thatdwelleth in you.

so i was studying in the oath and covenant of the priesthood, and just kind of thinking on that. this came up as a cross reference and it was talking about how if we do all we can our bodies will be renewed, INCLUDING the quickening of our mortal bodies. thinking on that, i have never been more tired in my life. im tired like all the time. but really when it comes down to it, when im doing what im supposed to, im not so tired, my sleep feels incredibly renewing. just a pretty neat experience i had thinking on this.

anyways, i love you all! have a great week!
