This week i have been studying obedience and attitude a lot in my personal studies! obedience is so great, when we obey, we increase our faith, knowledge, wisdom, testimony, protection, and freedom :) true freedom comes only from following him! it is so true! our obedience to the commandments is the expression of our love for our savior! :) he gives us commandments to bring us true joy! :)at knock out there was this really mean man that just swore at us and didn't say very kind things and i was just thinking well i can either choose to hate this man for the things he is saying to me or i can choose to love him and pray for him! Attitude is seriously everything! it determines how your life will be!
so it was way cool,we finally got a hold of ashton!! we have been trying to contact him and haven't talked to him for 3 weeks! He has been going through some crazy trials and we were able to help him out! We got him a bunch of food because and took it to his house and it just hit me right at that time that this is truly gods church, the way this church is set up is to help others and to let them know they are truly loved by their heavenly father :)
I just want to let you all know how much i love this gospel, it is truly the way for everlasting happiness! we can overcome ALL things through the savior jesus christ! i think that is the biggest lesson i have learned out here. i have never truly had to rely on the savior this much ever in my life until now where i have nothing else to lean on than him! :) i know that as we are trying our best each and everyday to follow him he will bless you soo much! never ever give up, be obedient and you will be blessed! :)
thank you all so much for your prayers and all the kind letters and emails! i love you all so much!i find out if i will be transferred or not! ahh I'm so scared!!! I'm just praying so hard i can stay here with sister hoffman!! holy moly i can't believe its already been a transfer! the time is flying!
Love you!!! xoxox
