18 Months of craziness!!

Spiritual thought:
Well these past couple of weeks have been crazy! Here are some of the highlights!
1) My comp Elder Entswistle left for Chile this past Thursday, man that was super sad to see him go but I know he will do great things down there! I am now in a trio with the Mustang 2 elders and we are covering 2 areas, and I will be solo zone leading for the rest of the transfer so we will be super busy but we are so excited! 
2) We had a couple of lessons this week and they were awesome! We had a lesson with Mustang 2's friend Sheryl  and we taught her the beginning part of the plan of salvation and she loved it! We are planning to put her on date for baptism this next week and we are so pumped! We also taught our friend Caleb, he and I have a crazy story..... I actually taught him in OKC 3 and we put him on date there, right after I got transferred to Mustang he moved to Louisiana and the missionaries lost contact with him. Well this week I saw him post something on facebook and I looked on his profile and saw that he lived in a Mustang!!  I was like no way!  So I messaged him and he messaged me right back he had in fact moved to Mustang and wanted to meet with us! We went over there and had a good conversation with him.  His wife left him and he is deep into alcohol and is super depressed. But he said he needs god's help and is willing to try again. So we call him and text him a scripture every day and call him every night to say a prayer. He is a super good guy and God for sure led us back to him so that was an amazing Miracle from this week! 
3) We had an in-person zone conference this past week and it was so amazing! It was exactly what I needed. We talked all about desire and how God will help us with what we desire and will help us become what he wants us to become. God is in this work and I am so humbled to be able to be a part of it every day.  God has been so good to me these past 18 months, that doesn't mean it was easy because it wasn't.  God gives us challenges and trials not because he hates us but because he knows who we can become and how to help us get there. He loves us so much he wants to help us become the person we are supposed to be.  I thank God every day for my mission and for the trials he gives me to be better every day and I invite you to do the same, Love you all!
