Week 12 - Crazy Tree Dropping Weather and Prison...

Hey there family and friends!!

Well, this week I went on two exchanges. It feels like I barely saw my companion! hah. Things here in College Station have been awesome! We have been able to find a lot of new families! Especially this one family we recently met. They are a super young family and just bought their first house. As we went to teach them they were completely open with us and told us they need the gospel more in their life. So we were gladly able to help give them exactly

Weather…There has been some crazy lightning storms here lately and I've loved it!! I will be honest…I have stayed up a couple of nights just watching them!! During one of the storms while we were at a family’s home a huge tree came crashing down. We went over to lend a hand to cut the tree up and remove it but the chain that was being used on the saw didn't work so well.

Something that’s been awesome this week was me and my companion started reading scriptures
At the museum.
as a companionship like before we go to bed and it’s been really great! Also, we won a zone activity for cleanest apartment!! The prize was going to prison…Well not really prison, but a prison museum; it was really cool but kind of scary haha.

Something that’s been tough, was one of our investigators dropped us and we've been working with him for a long time so it was kind of hard. I know that he just wasn't ready for the message but the seed of the gospel has been planted in him and he'll just have to let it grow.

I would love to bare my testimony… 
I know this church is true! I know Heavenly Father loves us and knows us all personally. I know that He knows when we’re ready and knows what he wants us to be. I love this gospel and I know it blesses families and that they can be together forever, I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
