This is the week. On Wednesday we get training from the mission president and should be authorized to use FB and other tools for proselytizing after that. We also get our flu shots that day :/ I’ve been making a habit of reading a conference talk from this past General Conference every day and they have just really touched my heart and lifted my spirits each day. Here is a promise given to us about the Book of Mormon from President Nelson:
“My dear brothers and sisters, I promise that as you prayerfully study the Book of Mormon every day, you will make better decisions--every day. I promise that as you ponder what you study, the windows of heaven will open, and you will receive answers to your own questions and direction for your own life. I promise that as you daily immerse yourself in the Book of Mormon, you can be immunized against the evils of the day, even the gripping plague of pornography and other mind-numbing addictions.”
What a wonderful promise given to us from a servant of God. I know that as I have studied the Book of Mormon on a daily basis that I do make better choices - I am more patient, more compassionate, more kind.
Gatesville is probably the smallest town I’ve served in - either that or it just feels small. I’m enjoying the unique charm of the place. There is one billboard here and it is called “The Sign” and it just consists of letters put up and it changes every couple of days and it just cracks me up and I love to see it change so often. The Coryell Medical Something or other welcomed their new cardiologist on it a few days ago. #smalltowncharm
I love you all and hope you have a great week. I hope you take the opportunity to find some time to open the Book of Mormon, study and ponder it, and see how you do make better choices that day.
