This week has been pretty awesome! Well mostly the end of the week has been the most awesome. I can't remember if I told you last week but we have to share a car with another set of elders now... It is not very fun. And this week is was probably the most humid and hot week of my entire life! I have never sweat so much before in a week I think.. Nevertheless it was fun though! Last Pday we played kick ball, ultimate frisbee, and some other games. It was a good time. This transfer our zone has a lot of different kind a characters in it. I haven't really seen anything like it. But it is cool I guess. We had some really cool miracles with working with members though! On Friday night we had a lesson with brother Quaye. He converted in 1999. He is from Liberia. He is one of my most favourite people I have met here on my mission. Anyways he invited a friend over whom I have met before but never before taught. And it was so cool! Brother Quaye basically taught the entire restoration lesson to her! He is so good with words and especially with talking to other Liberian people. It was awesome. All we had to do was bear testimony and give her a Book of Mormon. Then we had another Incredible miracle with another member! So on Friday we met this lady at those apartments in our area. We were about to leave and she called us over! She is a Liberian lady and I guess she moved here for a bit to help her daughter have a baby. And she is a member. Super solid member as well! We got bro Gruber to give her a ride to church. Then last night at like 9:30 she gives us a call and tells us that she has two friends that just came here from Liberia that want to "Be members of our church". It was insane. She isn't like the classic flakey Liberian either so we're pretty pumped! We're going to go meet them tomorrow at 2. Something like this has not happened in a long time for me. So it feels especially nice because of that! We have worked hard here and we're finally starting to see some things happen. I feel like this always happens. I get to a new area and have to start again or restart. I know that there is a reason for it and that reason is I need to learn how to rely on the lord more! It is so easy to do what think is best or what I think would be best for this particular area or person. I love the part on the restoration movie where Joseph challenges the big guy in a rod pull. And he says, "Sometimes we need to be brought low so the Lord can bring us higher." I LOVE THAT! It is so true. Sometimes the reason why things aren't t going well, or your frustrated, or sad, or feel like your just not on the right path is because the Lord is waiting for you to be humble enough to truly rely on him. I hAve had to learn this lesson over and over again. You'd think I'd have learned by now right? Well it seems like it was another successful MAG days! I forget that that even happened until like yesterday..
Also mom Did you send those garments I asked about yet? I was just wondering. There is also a mobile device fee I have to pay for in order to bring my iPad home. I guess I can send you the link and you can pay for it online. You can at least look at it and let me know what you think or if you do it. Here is the link:
Check it out and see if you can pay for it or whatever.. But ya I think that is still it. Are you still doing a blog thing? I was just wondering that. So alright I love you so much! Seriously thank you for everything you do for me. I probably won't be able to express my true thanks till October when I see you cuz emails are dumb. But I will talk to you later! Bye!
