11/24/2014 - Another week, another shilling

Hey everyone!!
    A lot has been going and I am grateful for all the blessings that the Lord has given me in helping move his work forward.  Something I have really learned throughout the past couple of weeks is how I need to continually rely on the Lord.  Not only on my mission, but throughout my life.  What can be considered is how we've been able to overcome challenges that we have been faced with in our lives, and what gifts and blessings our Heavenly Father has given us to endure through those trials.  When I look at all of the trials and challenges in my life, I realize that God had a role in each one of them.  There have been many times where I did not put my faith and trust in the Lord to help me to overcome.  But what I have learned is that our Father in Heaven gives us opportunities to be better, whether we ask for them or not.  As a missionary, we rely on God so much in His work, but when we put all of our heart, might and mind into our purpose, we see the blessings and the fruits of our labors.  Always look for those opportunities that God has given us to be better, to enlighten our minds, and enlarge our souls.
     So this past week, we didn't have power for 5 days.  Turns out some jerk stole a whole transformer and that means I had to use the stove to make my oatmeal instead of the microwave,.... life can be tough sometimes.  But for real though, it was all good.  One night we were trying to go to sleep but we heard a lot of noise coming from the other elders bedroom.  Turns out there was a rat in there that they had to battle to enjoy a good nights rest.  Anyways, This past week I've been a little sick and past missionaries weren't kidding when they said that being sick on mission sucks, because it does let me tell you. 
     Saturday and Sunday was Stake Conference and we watched a broadcast from Elder Bednar and President Uchtdorf.  Their talks were specifically addressed to the people of the stake and current issues that the country is facing, but I learned so much from what they had to say.  I am truly grateful that the Lord has blessed us with living guidance so we can live accordingly to God's will in these Latter days. 
      Have a good week everyone, I love you all, I promise I will write more next time.  Enjoy your thanksgiving!  Truly reflect on the blessings that you have been given from God and from others and show your gratitude through loving others, it will bless your life as well as the life of others.  EAT SOME TURKEY!!
