Just One of those Weeks

Not a whole lot happened this week that was too crazy. We did a lot of service so thats always fun. I realized that when i come home i will probably die because its only 70-80 degrees and it feels super hot! But just to make this letter a little longer than its gonna be, ill add a scripture since we did service this week. Mosiah2:17  And behold, tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom;that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellowbeings ye are only in the service of your God. 
So yeah, thats a good scripture that explains why service is awesome! Being a missionary is a lot of fun! You just have to be yourself and be likable and the members will like ya back. its pretty simple haha.

In my studies this week, i read a lot in D&C and it was awesome! There is a lot of great stuff in there. My favorites this week was when it talked about how when the Elders were speaking by the spirit, it is scripture. Thats why General Conference needs to be studied lots, because thats a lot of scripture that is going to benefit us!! I also read about how there was doubt about the validity of the revelations that were being received and God was just like, i challenge the smartest among you to come even close to the least of these revelations. So that was pretty cool. It reminded me of Elijah and the priests of Baal when they were seeing whose god was real. Elijah told them they could go first and try to light a bunch of sticks on fire so they did their thing and nothing happened so Elijah started taunting them telling them to yell louder because their god might be sleeping. That didnt work, so Elijah told them to pour a bunch of buckets of water on the sticks (it was his turn now) and when he prayed there was an explosion of fire that consumed some of the priests. Others committed suicide and the rest were killed. Thats the other thing i find funny is when people say the BOM is too violent, like come on, its all throughout the scriptures. 

Haha sorry, went on a tangent there, but that story is awesome. But, in other news, i am now on a no soda diet. I just wanted to see if i could do it, and i have officially gone without soda for 8 days. So im pretty impressed with myself.

Quote of the Week is "Dont let me get in your head Colby...just dont choke" haha we went bowling with the ysa and this guy is always trying to impress the girls so its fun to mess with him. 

Keep it real
