Hey everyone, hows it going?
It's crazy to think that this is my 2nd to last email that I will send. The time really does go fast, and it's all so bitter sweet.
This week was a good week here in Selkirk though. We were able to teach quite a few of our investigators and less actives so that was good. We got to go out to a members house in a place called fisher branch. It's about an hour and a half away. We spent 3 days out there helping on their farm and a bunch of their neighbors and things farms as well. It was a good experience to be able to go out and do some service and meet a bunch of people. we were able to teach some of them so that was great as well. It was kinda crazy, we stayed in this members house, but its a real old farm house and it doesn't really have running water, so we were using the old out house, and for a shower we had to use a bucket to fill the bath tub, then just bath in there. Needless to say you don't get very clean. It was fun though. Made me really grateful for all the amenities that we have. OH also I got my first tick this week. Then I got a second and third hahaha. It was tick city out there so that kinda wasn't fun but all in all it was a great time!
Lately we have been reading the Book of Mormon as a mission and we have been highlighting where Jesus Christ speaks or whenever it talks about Christ or the gospel. We highlight when it talks about faith, repentance, baptism, the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. This whole process has been amazing. It has helped me to see the Book of Mormon in a new light and really come to understand it even better. I challenge each of you to read the Book of Mormon but try something new with it, maybe read with a question, or a problem. Maybe go through and highlight all where it talks about Christ or the plan of salvation. I promise that it will help you to see it in a new light and strengthen the testimony that you have of the book. I love the Book of Mormon. I know that its true and I know it will bring us closer to God and Jesus Christ. I can't even express how much I love that book and how important and amazing it truly is. ALWAYS read it... I promise it will strengthen your conversion and help you every single day. We need to be praying, and reading our scriptures everyday, no excuses. If you are having problems or struggles in your life, if your doubting things -- read and pray, go to church and you will be amazed at how much better you will feel and how much help you will receive.
I love you all!!!! I gotta say I am getting excited to see you all next week... just a little excited.... haha.
Love you all!!!
