My Missionary Scripture D&C 68:6

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the Living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come.

Hello my friends and fam! 

Quite honestly, this has been one of the weirdest weeks of my mission! We haven't felt productive but all of our time was filled with productive things. Our schedule was just weird partially because we had District Meeting & interviews with President Ward on Friday instead of Wednesday. It has also FLOWN by. Super weird. 

Lemme share a SUPER funny story. 😂 so! Here we are Tuesday morning. Linda texts us and lets us know that she will be late for service. But she wanted us to get started on getting rid of the "suckers" on the apricot tree. well. We didn't know what suckers were... so we got there and decided maybe she meant to prune dead branches off of the peach tree.. haha. Well, Linda showed up after awhile. She was like "what are doing? That's the peach tree not the apricot tree.. this is the apricot tree!"  She takes us over to the other tree and tells us again to get rid of the suckers but she is gone again before we could ask what suckers were. As she went to change, we just decided that the dead branches needed to be cut off. Because the tree was way taller than my little arms could reach, Sister Whitesell grabbed the clippers and started jumping up, grabbing branches and cutting them off as she came back down to the ground. It worked pretty well the first couple times. Then, you see, there was a branch that was a little thicker than the others. But oh no, that did not stop her! She jumped up, caught the branch and hung there just long enough for her feet to swing out from under her as the branch broke off. Suddenly before she knew it, she was on her back looking up at the apricot tree. 😂😂 oh man, I wish I could've gotten that on video. I was only laughing because I knew she wasn't hurt. I was DYING! Hahah!! She was kinda butt hurt (no pun intended! 😂), but we always laugh at each other. That was a gem!

We have had some cool experiences with some people this week! 

It was super cool! Erica was sleeping with the baby so it was just Reed. He said he didn't have time to read from the Book of Mormon or the pamphlet and he was super bummed about it. We felt prompted to share Reclaimed. The first thing he said when we asked him what he thought was that he needed to hear that. He told us about his past and how he had done things that he was not proud of. He feels real guilt. Things have happened to him and people have told him that he deserves it because of his past. We read the story of Alma the Younger and talked about how it all relates to him. We talked about how Christ already suffered for all of those things and if he sincerely repents and forgives himself, he can feel forgiven by himself and by God. He really wanted that. We started talking about baptism a little bit and invited him to a baptism next weekend. Before we could finished the sentence to invite him, he already said yes. He said we would love to come. He has such a sincere heart and wants to Forgive himself, so we invited him to pray and ask for forgiveness and for help to forgive himself. It was a super cool lesson. He said he was super glad we came today and that he told us about his past. It was awesome! 😁

Sorry I'm super lame. But I just don't feel like it! We do have Pam's baptism! Please pray for her.... okay? 😁 love you guys! Have a good week!
