|This was the last door I knocked on Saturday.|
We talked to a Pentecostal guy named David and
he seemed pretty interested, so hopefully
something sweet works out.
This last week has been pretty weird, but it's been incredible. We did a lot of stuff with transfers for most of the week, which was fun as usual. My favorite result of transfers is that Elder Anderson is the new Assistant!! I trained him nearly 18 months ago in Yakima, so it's really neat to see the progression he made and know that he's the one filling my shoes.
|Stevey, Gunner, and Skyler. I have loved working|
with them so much! The little boys have so much energy!
I had the chance to say goodbye to a lot of people this week. It was weird saying goodbye this time, because instead of being transferred I was going home. We also visited Stevey a few more times. She's been reading quite a bit in The Book of Mormon and is starting to really get into it. That's been exciting.
One neat thing from this week was I had my departing interview with President Lewis. It was really fun to talk with him about the changes I've seen in myself during the mission and the changes he's seen in me. It was really neat to reflect on my mission with him. He also gave me some great advice on what to do with my future.
There was also one thing that he said that really struck me.
We were talking about recognizing the
spirit, and he said "The most important thing we can do when recognizing
the spirit is that we stay worthy. When we are worthy we don't have to question
whether it's our thoughts or the spirit, because we know that the spirit is
with us, and when we know that the spirit is with us we can be assured that any
thoughts we have come from the spirit."
|Gabriel and Crystal blessed their baby yesterday|
and Elder Walker and I got to stand in the circle.
That was pretty awesome.
I thought that was really neat. Often times we question whether or not we have the spirit and that we're being led by the spirit, but we can have the assurance that if we're worthy he will lead us.
It was a good week and I got lots of pics.
See y'all soon!!
This is Matt, Sarah, Curtis, and Josie. It's been awesome to get to know them as well. Hopefully Sarah comes around soon and they can start working towards the temple.
|The Parker Family. Sister Parker is the Relief Society President. Bryson, Liam, Brother Parker, Elise, Sister Parker, Matsen, Olivia. They're incredible!|
|Bother and Sister Prescott with little Theodore and Max. (Their other boy, Danny, wasn't feeling well) They are such an awesome young family.|
|This is Evelyn. She's the most spiritually mature 13 year-old I've ever met.|
