Enid, Oklahoma


Elder Elzinga


Iakwe from Oklahoma!!

This week was super good!! These new Elders are studs and are grinding so hard on the language, I love it. In lessons, I will just look at them for like 10 seconds until they say something hah, sometimes it's awkward and sometimes they say funny stuff, but they have strong testimonies and way bring the spirit with them! We have been teaching a lot this week! The Lord has way blessed us with some awesome people to teach and sooo many new people! There's so many Marshallese people here it's insane haha. But this week they're letting us OYM people which means "open your mouth" and talk to people on the streets and try to teach them. We couldn't before due to the Corona, but now we can! This is going to change the game for us! Also I'm soo tight with all the members, I love them so much. I've been here in Enid for a while now and I absolutely love it. When members introduce themselves to the new Elders they introduce themselves as my mom or dad haha its so funny 😂 they truly have become like my family. I absolutely love the Marshallese people, it hase been so fun learning their language and their culture and trying to become like them. Also this week I have way been studying Preach My Gospel chapter 6 - Christlike attributes. I have developed such a strong relationship with the Savior here in Oklahoma. He has become so real to me. Brothers and Sisters, He lives. He is the light and the life the world. This is His church. The church is true! In the name of Jesus Christ, amen! God speed!

Iakwe kom!
