It was pouring so hard

Photo: It was pouring so hard to my comp took this cool pic, the thunder was like a scary movie it didn't sound real and all the power went out! It was crazy!

This week was alright!

So my companion and I were contacting on a street and we came to this house and knocked and then looked up to a sweet looking old lady in the window asking who we were so we told her, "were missionaries for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and would like to give you a pamphlet" and she sweetly smiled and said that she will come.... Her sweet looking old husband opened the door and we told him who we were and asked him his name and personally for him, who God is in his life, and then we gave him the pamphlet, he told us he will go read it in peace but that he is catholic and that he reads the bible and then he put his right hand down make the gesture of a level and told us that we are right there and then threw his left hand up above his head and said, "and Im right up here, so you cant teach me anything." then slammed the door and I just got sick of saying, "its okay!" cause it actually hurts a lot, but maybe he read it in peace and loved it! Im waiting for his call.

Conference was really beautiful wasn't it! It made me want to serve more and love more, and in so doing I will receive the pure joy that Christ can only give us.

I've been trying to put my focus a lot better on Christ so for a couple of my personal studies I've drawn pictures of Christ and written about him and what He was like. It has really helped me to think more of Him, I think writing about Him and drawing makes it stick more in my head! So maybe if you need more help to focus on him think of his life here on earth and maybe even draw a picture.

I have wondered how many drops of blood He dropped for me specifically in the Garden of Gethsemane, then realized, it was perfectly just as many as He knew I needed.

I love you all and I hope that you all have a great week!
