Tahlequah, OK


Elder Manning

Livin the dream

Brothers and Sisters

This week has been another great one! I am sorry that I haven't wrote a letter in a little while, life has been crazy over here! Elder Manning and I are staying here in Tahlequah but we got a greenie to join us!! His name is Elder Mili and he's a stud. It has been so fun serving with him this week. We saw some pretty awesome miracles this week. Our friend Izzie is pretty much awesome. She accepted a Baptismal date in the first lesson and has kept EVERY SINGLE commitment we have given her. She devours the Book of Mormon, it is so cool to see. She is so prepared to be Baptized on the 13th. She told us in our last lesson about her past and how much she has changed. She said "I have never been so happy. This is the best decision I have ever made." The Gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives! It is amazing to see what the Savior can do. His Atonement is real. I love Him and His work. Speaking of His work, I have been extended to serve until August! I am really excited about it. Being a missionary is the best decision I have ever made. I have learned so much out here. I can't even put it into words.

I can relate with Ammon in Alma 26:16

Therefore, let us glory, yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.

The Savior lives and He stands at the head of His church!
