Who in the World

Hey everyone! This week was full of service! We almost did a service project everyday! On Friday we got a call from a member asking us if we could come help him with his cabinets.  We gladly accepted. We pulled up to his house a drove down his long gravel muddy driveway to his garage.  We moved all of his cabinets within 15 minutes of being there... But just was we were about to leave a giant semi began to back down his driveway.  We asked the member what he was doing and the member said he had no idea. The semi finally made it to the end of the gravel driveway and the driver jumped out and began to talk with Brother Horrigan. Brother Horrigan came back and asked if we could help move his new stove into the house.  He had forgotten that it was coming.  He also had forgotten to tell us that it was over 1,000 LBS stove.  (Who in the world needs that big of a stove?) We began to maneuver this stove around and try to get it off the trailer.  Then when it got off the trailer we engineered a path through the mud, onto his front porch, and into the house.  After about 2 hours of fiddling with this beast we finally got it inside. Although it was a tough task and took a long time to do I felt very good about doing it.  Throughout this process we were able to get to know Brother Horrigan a lot better and form a good relationship!  Honestly I believe that your greatest friends are those that you work the hardest with.
This week we also had the opportunity to listen to Elder Kevin S. Hamilton of the Seventy.  He spoke about the important role of member missionary work!  He also taught us a simple way to use family history.After the conference we were at the library working on a progress record to give to the ward mission leader.  I was getting a little antsy because it was taking so long, then out of no where a guy came up to us and began to talk with us about the church. His aunt was a member and somehow we got on the topic of family history.  To make a long story short we were able to find a few of his relatives and he was able to tell us a few stories about them.  This lead to a great discussion about why we do family history. Even though we may not of been out pounding on doors, God was still able to lead people to us.  After all this is His work!  Again I love serving the people here in Ohio!  I know that there is no other place I need to be! I know that the work, that we should all be apart of whether or not we wear badge or not, is Gods.  He provides the miracle.  We exercise faith.  I know this is the greatest challenge, the greatest cause, the work on the earth.  I love being apart of it!
