Wood Splittin' Week!

Hello Everyone!

This week was kinda crazy! But it was also quite great! We drove up to Virginia for a leadership meeting on Tuesday and drove a brand new 2015 Toyota Corolla back home on Wednesday! We did, however, have to drop off that car in Little Washington with the Sister Missionaries there. But the trip was good, and we all learned a lot!
On Tuesday, we helped one of the members in our ward split some wood. It was my first time using a machine to do it and we definitely worked hard! About an hour and a half after we began, all the wood was separated into smaller chunks and two of the teenage boys helping us ran and jumped into the creek to cool off. My companion and I both had to fight off the temptation to join them!
Yesterday my companion and I fasted that we could work more with the members and receive some referrals from them. We have been teaching a lot and finding many new investigators recently, but most of them end up not having much interest. We saw a miracle today! We went into Firehouse Subs for lunch and a member was there working. We ordered and then sat down to eat. Those subs are delicious! Anyway, a few minutes later, that member came over to us and asked us if we had a Book of Mormon that she could give to her friend. We told her we would go grab one from our car. When we came back in and gave her The Book of Mormon, her friend was right there and she handed him the book and we set up an appointment with him! It was definitely a miracle! This truly is the Lord's work.
This week I learned that the adversary will do his best to distract us. If he can cause great disciples to do mediocre things, he is pleased. Seek your full potential! We are all children of God! He will help us as we seek to do His will. I invite each of you to evaluate your life. Take those things that are distracting you from following the Lord and get rid of them. I know that as we continually refine our actions and draw nearer unto Him, our lives and the lives of those around us will be immensely blessed!
Have an amazing week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers

P.S. Zone Meeting went well! It was my first time leading it!
