Power in The BOM!

Hello everyone! This week was quite the week! Despite all the meetings and the transfer we were able to see some cool things. We were able to teach LaKendra a few times and read the Book of Mormon with her.  She came to church and enjoyed it!  As much crazy stuff that goes on in the world there is power in the Book of Mormon.  She says she always has a lot going on but when we read the Book of Mormon she says she always feels good. 

As I was studying this week I came across this verse in D&C 84:56-58

56 And this condemnation resteth upon the children of Zion, even all.
57 And they shall remain under this condemnation until they repent and remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon and the former commandments which I have given them, not only to say, but to do according to that which I have written 
58 That they may bring forth fruit meet for their Father’s kingdom; otherwise there remaineth a scourge and judgment to be poured out upon the children of Zion.

Remember how important the Book of Mormon is and as we apply the principles in it we will be able to bring forth fruit meet for our Fathers Kingdom.

Being with Elder Smith has been fun! He is 24 but still pretty similar to me, he played sports in High School and was a sports reporter for the Calgary Flames before he came on his mission. He has had to try really hard but he talked me into going skiing in Canada;) haha!  After transfers we had MLC which was changed to be just 1 day instead of 2 so it cut out a lot of planning time which was super nice!  We are heading to Gulfport this weekend!
MLC- November!
Crazy story for the week!- Last night at about 7:00 we were trying to visit a less active that we had a set appointment with.  We had a member meet us there, she ended up not being home and as we were walking back to the car the member started telling us that we really shouldn’t be in the neighborhood we were in at that time of night and mid sentence… "BANG BANG BANG BANG" There goes someone shooting there gun!! haha.

Welcome to Jackson.

Love you all!!
