I Love It!

Hello everyone! 

We had a productive week, things have been really good this week!! We have had good visits with Blake, he is almost religion happy, like thats literally all he will talk about haha! We weren’t able to see our part member family because the kids were with their Dad this week. We had dinner with the Mays yesterday. The Mays are awesome! On Saturday an investigator the other Elders in Slidell are working with was faced with quite the decision to make!  She was scheduled to be getting baptized at 5:00. Around noon she got a call from her boss telling her that she needed to be at work at 5:00. So she had a pretty big dilemma. She decided that she would rather get fired from her job to go onward with the baptism!  She ended up being able to work everything out so that she could be at work at 6:00 instead. But what a great act of faith by her.  

2 Nephi 2:26-27
26 And the Messiah cometh in the fulness of time, that he may redeem the children of men from the fall. And because that they are redeemed from the fall they have become free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the law at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given.                  
27 Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.

God has given us agency to make decisions for ourselves. To decide whether or not to follow Christ and His gospel. Though it often times is the harder road he will provide a way through! The gospel is true!

I am doing great! I have learned so much from my mission, life lessons that I couldn’t have learned anywhere else. Everything is great down here, I love it. My area is awesome and the Slidell ward is a really good ward!  I have been so lucky in the places I have served! I’m about to die though because its going to get so hot soon!

Have a good week!
Thanks for everything!
Love you!:)
