Week 86 - Perth, Western Australia - April 3, 2017 - Gonna be a good week

OK.....not really a missionary activity.
Well I heard from all of you already that conference was unreal. I. have been so excited for this conference. I can't wait to spiritually feast upon the Word of God and receive renewed vision and clarity! Sounds like Gridley has been the bomb as usual, I would love to play some whiffle ball right now and take a dip in the pool:) but I wouldn't leave here if i had the chance. I love the GROWTH ZONE! Spiritual growth is often like watching grass grow but if you look back after many weeks and months you will see a different you! Hopefully a more Christlike reflection...

A is doing awesome...I have so much love for him. He went his first full day without smoking at all yesterday so we gotta keep him going...It's hilarious cuz whenever we are at his house crazy things are happening in the neighborhood. You could say it's a bit of a ghetto but we watched some crazy woman attack her boyfriend with a metal rod the other's funny how casual it actually is these days. We don't really even react because of how normal it is....the guy was all goods tho. No damage done...

Went on an exchange with a Filipino elder this week....He is actually quite a large guy but he ripped his pants full wide eagle open while we were biking haha! He was keeping the commandment to "let his light so shine" just from the back He insisted we call in the dogs so he could change...

We had some Colombian investigators that were super keen on coming to church this week but never showed...One of them was sooo interested by the Book of Mormon because he studied ancient Mayan, and Aztec History in University so he was quite intrigued...

Jacob 4:10

10 Wherefore, brethren, seek not to acounsel the Lord, but to take counsel from his hand. For behold, ye yourselves know that he counseleth in bwisdom, and in justice, and in great mercy, over all his works.
If we can learn early on in our life that the purpose of prayer is not to change the will of God but bring in alignment our will with His we will save ourselves a lot of wasted time....I have a strong testimony that Prayer is True communication with God....I have a sure knowledge that he hears our prayers and answers them but he does love us too much to give us everything we think we currently need:) 

You are all my inspiration! Hope your week is as good as mine will be!
