Hey friends! its been a great week! just want to give a quick shout out to charlie patterson in fort smith! for those of you who dont know charlie just got baptized this past weekend! oh how i miss the patterson family! y'all are great!
so this week had its ups and downs for sure. had a couple run-ins with some people id rather not have. but all is well!
had a really intense lesson this saturday with a lady we have been working with for a while. her name is denise. if you could all just keep her in your prayers that would be great!
the highlight was for sure stake conference. i love the saturday night sessions. ive always loved them since (throwback) the first saturday night stake conference session for the fairly new monett stake. but like i said i just love these sessions. this one i feel was one of the greats. our stake president here gave one of the greatest talks of all time.
but yeah just grinding and doing evverything we possibly can to get things going out here! and its definitely paying off! thanks for all of your support!
so heres the scripture of the week. its 2 nephi 32: 8-9.
8 And now, my beloved brethren, I perceive that yeponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I mustspeak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken untothe Spirit which teacheth a man to pray, ye would knowthat ye must pray; for the evil spirit teacheth not a man topray, but teacheth him that he must not pray.
9 But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always,and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto theLord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father inthe name of Christ, that he will consecrate thyperformance unto thee, that thy performance may be forthe welfare of thy soul.
that was one of the things they talked about in conference was the power of prayer. its real. keep your heavenly father involved in your life.
anyways, i love you all! have a great week!
we got to do some pottery this week!
also got to have a bon fire with one of our investigators this week. it was a blast!
