Week 26 - Working Hard, Shoveling Snow

So this week was crazy here in O town! 

Elder Jackson, Elder Miranda and I have been working like crazy! We found two Hispanic families that are interested in the gospel!! We also are teaching a man whose name is Manuel, he is so awesome! Then we also found a woman whose name is Beatriz who has some questions about the church. We have been so blessed this week it is unbelievable. 

We had dinners with members everyday last week! And this week everyday when we are in Osceola we have dinners with members also. It is so awesome to see members grasp onto how to do missionary work! 

I have been so tired lately, it's just a missionary thing, to always be tired, but this week I was especially tired. Also Elder Jackson, Elder Miranda and I all have colds. Which doesn't help with getting a good night's sleep haha but it's fine, the Lord always gives us enough energy to do what he would have us do! 

Following the spirit and working hard is how to be a successful missionary, that is what I have learned this week! No matter what we do as missionaries, if we don't follow the spirit we will not be successful, but if we do follow the spirit, the Lord will grant us blessings that in return, we can never repay him for. Mosiah 2:21 "I say, if ye should serve him with all your whole souls yet ye would be unprofitable servants."  

We are so excited for this upcoming week and the miracles we will see. I know this church is true, I know God loves his children, and that if we ask, He will answer.
