Just another week in Hinesville Georgia.....

May 27, 2013

I cant believe that another week has already gone by. and yet, this week was probably one of the slowest ones yet.. me and my companion werent able to get much teaching done. but thats okay. we still felt that we did a good job. we were knocking doors and we were able to talk to people quickly and give them books of mormon. we have a couple people that we have talked to and are hoping to go this week and fellowship with them and talk about the gospel with them.  the people of georgia are really open and willing to talk, if you find the right people. some people will tell you they already know jesus and say no thanks to our message. its getting frustrating. 

yesterday, me and elder meiling had to give talks in sacrament meeting. both on repentance. it was a good time. i learned new things and it has helped me out even more that i could have ever imagined. 

Today is Memorial Day, and being next to a Military Base, we are hoping for something really cool to happen. We email from the church and we are going to be playing volleyball with the people here and have a bbq after! we also have FHE with a family later tonight so we will be fed today.. i am excited..

yeah, nothing much happened this week, so i dont have much to write! oh well. it will take time..

Mom here~
I had the difficult task this week of informing him that a close family friend had passed away unexpectedly.  This was his poignant reply:

i seriously just started to cry reading that.. i am speechless.. please tell aubrey i am here too. i dont have her email but i would love to email her..  that is amazing that she came to you first.. she really does love you. i am so grateful for the memories our families shared. please convey that with them. if i could be there, i would.. but, i am unable to. i am here trying to find people that would listen to this exact message. that our families can be together forever! that is the beautiful thing about this church. we can be with our families forever!  i am glad i didnt hear her sing again though.. i would have been bawling!  
thinking back now, i am so glad we were able to spend time with them a couple months ago. our families are connected.  please tell aubrey and curtis and heather that i love them so much.

My hope for all who read this is that you'll take time this week to call that friend and tell him/her how much they mean to you.  Also, draw your families close and be grateful for the knowledge that Families Can Be Together Forever.

With much love~
