Week 89 - Perth, Western Australia - April 24, 2017 - Meetings

So this week was packed with zone conferences and traveling....Zone conference went well..In the leadership training we trained on how the best leaders are the best followers, and also how to effectively use exchanges to influence your missionaries...then in conference we focused on How to Effectively decide who to continue to teach and work with in your area, and did heaps of role plays...Twas good...

This week I got some good news, Do you remember that homeless guy under the bridge, Elder Brinkerhoff found? Well he got baptized so that was cool to hear...

Also a lady we found down in Rockingham a few months ago is getting baptized in 2 weeks...And K called me.(18 year old boy he was teaching in his last area.)  It was good to talk to him. He is living out in the bush but he is still reading the Book of Mormon and wants to be baptized still...So it was cool to see some things happening with past people I've taught!

A is still battling, He isn't giving up. He is so close. Keep him in your prayers....We are praying that cigarettes will make him sick and that he won't even be able to tolerate the smell anymore...

26 And now, behold, who can stand against the works of the Lord? Who can deny his sayings? Who will rise up against the almighty power of the Lord? Who will despise the works of the Lord? Who will despise the children of Christ? Behold, all ye who are despisers of the works of the Lord, for ye shall wonder and perish.
27 O then despise not, and wonder not, but hearken unto the words of the Lord, and ask the Father in the name of Jesus for what things soever ye shall stand in need. Doubt not, but be believing, and begin as in times of old, and come unto the Lord with all your heart, and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before him.
28 Be wise in the days of your probation; strip yourselves of all uncleanness; ask not, that ye may consume it on your lusts, but ask with a firmness unshaken, that ye will yield to no temptation, but that ye will serve the true and living God.
These verses sunk deep into my heart this week, Remember how dependent we are on Christ, When we begin to think that we can go it on our own and continue on the straight and narrow path, we have been deceived...The mission has shown me How completely Dependent I am On the Power Of Christ in my life. I Know that without it I will surely fall. I testify of the reality of the Living Savior and his ability to sustain us and strengthen us to change us into who we need to become. 
I love you all:) And shout out to King who put his papers in! I am pumped to hear the news! You are the man! I love you! Such an experience awaits!
