Bowling and Victoria day

So let me see.  last Monday we went bowling with a few of the other missionaries, that was fun. Fun to just feel normal for a while and not worry about whether or not i am perfect enough or being obedient enough etc. But i do love being a missionary work. I love trying to help people improve their lives, while at the same time being able to improve my own.  I feel the Spirit more and more and at the same time i am realizing how little i actually can accomplish without the Lord, but with the Lord i am able to do miracles. We literally ask people to change their lives- and Some actually do! if this work was not the work of God it would be useless.  Other then that, our week was fairly much like other weeks. We tried to offer service wherever we could, we organized and cleaned up records, visited less actives and former investigators, helping the members out as much as we can. We had branch council that was good.  This branch has some good leaders. Victoria day was good, we spent the morning helping the Branch President and his little sons clean up his yard and cut it.  it took about 3 hours, but it looks great! i love offering service when i can. Unfortunately no one was really home, we think most of them went camping.  That was pretty much the week. We are really exhausted.    Anyways, gotta go, love you all!

Scripture for the week: Compare Mosiah 21-22 with Mosiah 24 and see the difference between the people, their obedience, their response, and how much the Lord helps them.  Attitude makes all the difference. They were both in bondage, but the attitude was different.
