Hey hey hey! So this week we did lots and lots of service. Feeding the hungry, cleaning houses, painting cabins, you name it! So that was a party of course. I would like to thank my mother for always making me clean the kitchen my whole dang life, because now as I clean other peoples nasty kitchen's I am like the top dawg kitchen cleaner! ;)
Transfer calls were this week and me and Brim are staying in the falls! Sister Brimhall goes home next transfer though and will be leaving me here and I'm not excited for that day...cause she is the best!
So guess what?! We tracted into 2 new investigators this week!! That is such a miracle! Their names are Jack and deb and I think they should be good!! I'm starting to really love the people here which is a serious blessing cause I was just kind faking it for quite some time with most of them...( what? did I just say that?) But now I don't have to and it's such a blessing! And I can sincerely say that I am going to be so sad when I have to leave them and all of their craziness! Cause they are the best. :)
So for the past couples weeks I have been obsessed with the word "rest" in the scriptures. I just love it so much when it talks about finding rest through our savior. So I did a study on it one day and looked up all the times that it says it in the scriptures which is a ton! And here is what I concluded: They do not say we will be phsyically rested through the Lord, bu that our souls may find rest.."Consider the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God" We can "rest" our troubled/anxious/worried souls fully only through the knowldege and acceptance of our savior "com,e unto me, all that labour and are havey laden and I will give you rest...take my yoke upon you and learn of me...and ye shall find rest unto your souls" This life can be so emotionally exhausting and every single person must "come unto christ and partake of the goodness of God" This gospel is the only medecine to find "rest" in this life! Other religions are like a small does of a knock off brand that kind of take the edge off..but the gospel of Jesus Christ is where the full dose of miracle medecine comes into play! And once we accept it it then we can "enter into His rest" jacob 1:7. So lets all take a spoonful of this restful medecine and then share it with our suffering friends eh? (I went to a bbq in Canada last night so I can say that again)
Life is good, and the Gospel makes it even better! Haha love you guys!
