Manteca, California


Elder Anderson


Heyo Everybody,

These last two weeks have been absolutely jammed pack, I wish I could fit everything in this video, but I will just include the highlights.

Two weeks ago we had a mission tour with Elder Pearson of the Quorum of the Seventy. We were able to have two, four hour meetings with him over Zoom. Holy Cow what an amazing experience. You could really tell that when he talked, he talked with Power and Authority. What he taught has really transformed my view of my mission, and how I need to be and grow. I need to be so much better! He has shown me the way, the way that I need to be!

Last week President Zimmerman asked me if I would be willing to train. I was completely excited and humbled at the prospect of this opportunity. I picked up my new companion on Monday, went to the Temple to take pictures, and then drove back down her to Manteca. Elder Anderson is from Texas, he is a stud. I am gonna have to help him learn how to work hard. Even so his intentions are good, so he is going to do good!

This last week we were able to see a lot of miracles! One in particular came through a referral. A mother and her daughter were referred to us, asking for a Priesthood blessing. They were both completely heart broken, the mothers son had committed a crime within the family. The Spirit was strong as we gave the blessings to them. And as she sat there and cried and cried, Heavenly Father let me see her and He sees her. I felt an overwhelming love for her that I cannot explain. She's a daughter of God, and He let me see her divine potential! I am so grateful that Heavenly Father trusted us enough to help one of His daughters in need!

I am so grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ! I am a witness of His love for each and every one of us!

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
