|In the Mission Office with Elders Foust and Derricott|
hope you are having a great week! so we have seen some awesome things this week and this week has been OFF THE WALL crazy. elder elwood and i taught a lady named traci that we found a week ago. we had to cancel our first appointment with her, but she rescheduled right then (that never happens haha). we went and taught her and she was super excited to be meeting with us. she loved the restoration and had great questions. she prayed for the first time at the end of our lesson. she prayed a very sincere prayer and asked that she would be able to, "believe the way these guys believe." how cool is that??
here is the problem with traci.... i got transferred. in the middle of the week i was suddenly abducted and called to serve with elder derricott on campus at msu as an assistant to president jacobsen. elder foust (the assistant i am replacing) is training me. he is the greatest so luckily i will be able to learn a lot before he leaves. we have been super busy and planning to call the missionaries and let them know where they are moving for transfers. we are also preparing to move all of the missionaries to their new areas. luckily we still got to go out on campus and find people. it was awesome.
we had a great stake conference this week, Elder Hamula came and it was incredible!
we are working hard and having fun. Elder Derricott says hi! remember, he was my mtc comp.
we are so weird, but today we went to the rare isotope beams laboratory for fun. and we took a tour from an awesome msu professor there. he was so cool and we talked for a while and learned a lot. at the end we asked him if he believed in God and he said yes for sure. he was a nuclear physicist and an astronomer. we asked him if he wanted to learn what we believed and we sat down and taught him a little about the pre earth life. i love that we can answer the question, "why did God make an earth and put humans on it? why did he create us?" was it for fun? an experiment? company? what was it? no, He created us to become as He is. He loves us infinitely, even though to Him, we are infinitely small. Choose to believe in His love. We don't have to know everything. We just have to know and believe that God loves us all (1 nephi 11:17). last thought: how do we avoid temptation? 1 nephi 15:26-27. the only way is to have our minds so caught up in other things. have our thoughts focused on righteous things. preoccupation with unworthy behavior can lead to unworthy behavior. think good thoughts. love you all. have a great week.
ps if this is the last longer email i send, i am sorry. life is about to get busy. well.. busier.
