Josh's Mission May 19 2014

iokwe baamle!!

Things are going really great! The threesome is different but I think that it's really great! I know that heavenly father wants all 3 of us here for some reason.

It's so true that Satan is working so hard to get us down, but the gospel provides that uplifting power that we need, through the atonement. It really is amazing how much the gospel can change our lives. One of the recent converts that we have here, Cindy, has changed so much since she got baptized. It's been really great to see her feel the spirit and have that change of heart. We went and visited her this week, she's been really busy and stressed with work and life in general (crazy how Satan knows our weak points and pushes them as much as he can). So she's been having to work 2 jobs and on sunday since she got baptized and we talked to her and she is going to be talking to her boss so that she can get that changed. She really feels like she needs to come to church, she knows she's missing so much.

We were also able to meet with Mandy, finally. She's been super crazy busy with work and school, but we had a great lesson with her on Saturday about faith and finding those treasures that he has given us. and Having the faith to do as he would have us. She hasn't been able to meet with us or come to church for awhile now and she told us that she is really feeling the loss of the spirit and she wants to come back. It's awesome to see the change in her and to see her feel the spirit and love of our heavenly father.

We were also blessed with a new investigator this week! Her name is Stacey. She has 2 children, her daughter is awesome and already asking great questions and really wants to learn more and she' 11. We met her the other day walking around and she told us that she had actually met with a senior couple about 10 years ago. She has great questions and is really great! We are very grateful for the wonderful blessing of meeting her.
It was a great week! I've been trying to look for the tender mercies that Heavenly father has blessed us with as well as to look for instances of Charity and times that I could have been more charitable and did well. It's been really great to see those small simple miracles that Heavenly father blesses us with each day. I know that he does bless us and that the more that we look for those small and simple things the more that heavenly father will open our eyes to the ways that we can improve as well as those blessings that he's given us. I know that it is so important to be grateful for those blessings.

I love you all!! thank you so much for your love, prayers and support!!
