I just wanted to start by saying that I really love my Mom. She's the best. I also love both of my Grandma's they are awesome as well.
This past week has been awesome! Between the last time I emailed and now I have been on 3 exchanges. That is a lot of exchanges. One of the things that we have been focusing on on all of those exchanges is receiving personal revelation from God to assist us in His work. I like to think of the scripture James 1:5 which reads, "If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him." As young men we often lack the wisdom to do this work and we almost always lack the wisdom of who God needs us to talk to that day. So we decided to test James and ask God to help us to know who we needed to talk to that day. The best part is He answered. One of the times he answered was on Monday when I was on an exchanged with Elder Larsen after praying to know who we were looking for we felt prompted that we were looking for a young women with 2-3 kids who needed to know more about God's plan for her. We saw a young women as we were driving and we hopped out to talk to her. It was her and she was wanting to know more about God's plan for her. It was awesome! I know that all of us can receive revelation to help in our personal lives as well as to move God's work along!
Sorry for the super long email. Love Y'all
P.S. I learned how to skin a squirrel on preparation day last week.
