The weeks just seem to be flying by so fast lately! It was a pretty eventful one for us too. I got to go on an exchange with a Greenie in our district. His name is Elder Tanner and I say Greenie but he is also 6 foot 8 and weighs over 300 hundred so he's got me beat on that. We got to spend a couple days together here in Branson and we switched back comps when we went to Springfield for interviews with President and Sister Loveland. Had some super good chats with both of them. They are both power houses when it comes to giving counsel.
We've been trying to get our members involved with missionary work a lot lately. We had a member that is super missionary minded set up a lesson with the lady he rents from who has seen missionaries in the past. We went over to talk with her and she was WAY contentious, so we just sat and listened to her go off and didn't say anything. When we talked we refused to have any kind of contention and when we did that, she calmed down a whole lot and actually had a conversation with us. It didn't go any further than a nice christian talk but it was a testimony builder to me that the spirit can not dwell in a place of contention. The holy ghost can not be with us if there is any kind of contention in our homes or in our relationships with others. It takes two to bring in the spirit of contention so we get to choose to fall into it, or not. I saw the blessings of keeping the holy ghost close to us this week.
Hey we are also getting a new apartment this up coming week so hold your horses with all those packages and letters you are wanting to send me. I'll get the new address to you next week. Love ya!
