How to Tie a Tie!

Hello everyone!
This week has been good! We were able to go to a baseball game and watch Sister Mays son play so that was fun! We also had some good teaching appointments, the Lord is looking out for us!

Alma 42:11-15
11 And now remember, my son, if it were not for the plan of redemption, 
(laying it aside) as soon as they were dead their souls were miserable, beingcut off from the presence of the Lord.
12 And now, there was no means to reclaim men from this fallen state, 
which man had brought upon himself because of his own disobedience;
13 Therefore, according to justice, the plan of redemption could not be brought about, only on conditions of repentance of men in this probationary state, yea, this preparatory state; for except it were for these conditions, mercy could not take effect except it should destroy the work of justice. 
Now the work of justice could not be destroyed; if so, God would cease to be God.
14 And thus we see that all mankind were fallen, and they were in the grasp of justice; yea, the justice of God, which consigned them forever to be cut off from his presence.
15 And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except and atonement should be made; therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercy, to appease the demands of justice, that God might be perfect, just God, and a merciful God also.
I am grateful for Christ and the Atonement He made, and the plan God laid forth for us! I know each of us have an intricate part in that plan! 

Blake had another falling out about something but Peyton is doing good and is planning on getting baptized on Friday at 6! The Ward is doing good. We have a pretty fun ward! I am glad I am getting to serve my mission here. Things with Elder Suapaia are great, President Olson asked me today if I thought it would be a good thing for us to stay another transfer today. I hope we will get to stay together another one! Today we are going to play basketball at a public gym, indoor courts and everything so that will be fun! Hopefully some local high school kids will be there!

Thanks for all your support! Sorry for the short email!
Love, Elder Larsen
