Spiritual thought: My spiritual thought for this week comes from this scripture; Alma 37: 37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day. We should be counseling with the Lord with everything we do and if we do this we will be blessed every day! The Lord loves all of us and wants to know what's going on in our lives so pray to him.... let him know what's going on and how he can help! Love y'all and hope y'all had a great week!
Day 1: Whole lot of finding! Did a ton of finding today and it was a pretty good time. We handed out 2 book of Mormon and it was so sweet!
Day 2: Kind of an odd day. We had a lesson with Jim and it wasn't great we were planning on putting him on date but then he came with a bunch of questions and so we had to set another plan for him to find out if the Book of Mormon is true and we will see what happens this time. Ended off the day well by handing out a book of Mormon.
Day 3: Today sucked... well the beginning did... We woke up to a voicemail from Jim saying he's leaning more towards Catholicism and he doesn't know if he wants to meet any more. Well man that crushed my soul! There's only one way I can describe the feeling I had it was like making it to the championship game....and then losing and that's the worst feeling in the world! That started off the day on a bad note but I tried to have a good attitude and man that was tough! We had a good district council and then we went finding handed out 2 book of Mormons so ended on a good note!
Day 4: Exchanges! Had exchanges today with Elder Stucki and it was a lot of fun. We started off the day with some service at the salvation army and that's always a good time. Then Elder Stucki and I went and knocked some doors by the way knocking doors is SO much easier than OYMing at the mall hahah but anyway found 2 potentials for New Haven then we went to the mall to find and handed out 3 book of Mormons!
Day 5: Solid day! Today me and Elder Palmer set out to hand out 4 book of Mormons. So that morning we went to woodland hills mall and started to hand out book of Mormons well an hour and a half later we had ended up handing out 6 for the morning! So we were feeling pretty pumped so we did some other missionary work and decided we wanted to hand out 4 more to get to 10 for the day. At the end of the day we ended up handing out 17 it was awesome we met some really cool people and hopefully some new friends!
