Week #56

Hello y'all! Sorry for the late email, we had some technical difficulties this week haha but its all good! This will be short and sweet, but it was a great week!

Part of the reason why I was having technical difficulties was that I am currently sharing an iPad with Elder Alfred because his is..... well broken. He left it on top of the car and it fell off while driving down the street.... then got run over by a truck. Haha so yea I have been letting him use my iPad to talk to his family and such. Pics will follow.

So our investigators Thomas and Garrettson FINALLY came back into town, so we've been spending time with them and getting back in the swing of things. They are still progressing very well and are definitely taking big steps towards entering the waters of baptism. 

Sue Heseltine is progressing very well as well. She is out of town until the 6th, but we had a solid lesson with her and she is really looking for answers. Her husband passed away recently, (he was inactive for 40+ years), and the Ward stepped in and helped her with everything and even helped with the memorial service, and she was so taken back by it that she wanted to learn more about the church. Thanks to faithful home teachers, she was having little opportunities of feeling the Spirit and learning for a year! Now we are teaching her and things are looking great!

Jarrell is doing great as always. He's such a kind hearted man. We have gotten very close these last 3 months and it has been such a blessing getting to know him and building the friendship we have.

For my thought I wanted to share a quote I found this week. I'll attach the picture with it. It says "To be worthy does not mean to be perfect". I feel we often times feel like we are unworthy of the Lord's help, or unworthy to ask for things from Him through prayer, because we feel we fall short. This is such a common feeling, and is one of the tools Satan uses against us. He tries to bring us down and tell us that we are not worthy of the Lord's help because we are imperfect. But in reality, why we came to this Earth is so that we CAN learn from our mistakes, learn and grow, and be imperfect! We are not expected to be perfect, but rather we are expected to TRY and STRIVE to be more like the Savior, who is perfect. That is our purpose. We are most definitely worthy of the Lord's help and are ALWAYS worthy to pray. God will not deny a faithful and hopeful prayer of one of His children. Turn to Him, and He will help you. When you have those thoughts of not being worthy, combat them. All that is is Satan trying to drag you down. You are worth so much in the eyes of God, no matter what Satan says. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

I love y'all so much! I hope you have a wonderful week this week! Until next time! God speed!
