This week went well! The weather was slightly chilly, but it's starting to get warmer! On Monday we had a family home evening with the branch! We watched some Mormon Messages, and talked a little bit about our New Year's resolutions! Haha more on that later!
Throughout the week we contacted some people, tracted, and taught. There is a new member in our ward and we go over to his home sometimes and read the Book of Mormon with him! We can learn so much that will bless us in our lives from that book!
On Friday I went on exchanges with one of the zone leaders! We went down to the waterfront and walked and talked with all the people we passed! It was really fun and there were some people who said we could come teach them! Later on, he showed me how to make an omelet! It was super tasty!
I've been doin' a little bit of cooking this week as well! It's actually kinda fun! And it tastes a lot better than what I usually do!
So one of my New Year's resolutions was to try and never have seconds at members homes! Haha it worked for a little while...but on Tuesday we were at an older couple's home for dinner. We had some roast beef among other things, and it was really delicious! I made the mistake of eating too quickly, and the Sister said to me, "Elder, please take my roast beef. I'm not going to be able to eat it and you still look hungry." I tried saying no, but that didn't work! Haha so I'm gonna hafta keep trying! On the bright side, the roast beef was quite delectable!
This week I gained a new perspective on prayer. On Sunday, there was a lesson on it and how important it is. We truly can talk with God. Let us pray often, sincerely. And when we do, let us listen to Him speak to us. Our Heavenly Father loves us enough that He wants to talk with us each day. I invite each of you to pray more fervently, more sincerely, and more often. I know you will see a difference in your life. I love you all and hope each one of you has an amazing week!
This week was good! The subject of this email is a pun based on the weather here in Washington, NC and my new companion! His name is Elder Burkart and the weather is slightly on the chilly side! But I love it here so far!
On Wednesday, I met my new companion and we drove from Greenville to Washington. A member drove us and he seemed really nice! He's from Canada, so he instantly gained my friendship! (I'm half Canadian)
Later in the week we had dinner with some members in Bath, NC. Bath was the first city in North Carolina and it was really cool! Washington is by the coast and the water surrounding us is gorgeous! I'll definitely have to get some pictures and send them to y'all!
I led my first District Meeting on Friday and it went really well! Our district consists of Elder Burkart and I, a companionship of sisters, a senior couple, and the zone leaders. I think I'm going to love this area and the people here!
We taught a lesson about humility this week. Humility is aligning our will with God's will and if we are humble, we will be so much happier. Trust God and His will for each of you and you will be so blessed. I love you all and hope everyone's week is wonderful!
