Week 54: Sacrifice Brings Blessings

It was a really great week this week. There was lots of finding going on whether it was looking up former investigators, going through our potential sheets, or tracting, we did it all! And we found some people that are interested! We went tracting for quite a bit on wednesday i think it was and it was just pouring. I love tracting in the rain, for whatever reason. Its miserable, but i love it! We were able to pick up a new investigator who is willing to be baptized when he finds out it is true! Tracting in miserable circumstances(at least for me) brings extra blessings in my opinion. Plus its where all the great stories come from!

For example, we were talking to this lady at her door and her dog came out onto the porch. We asked how her faith in Christ had helped her in her life and then a big guy came walking to the door super quick and speaking loudly said "We go to that church right there(pointing to the catholic church) so there it is!" and proceeded to slam the door. as he was doing so the kids yelled "but what about the dog!" and the door slammed. we couldnt help ourselves, we were busting up laughing! haha it was great! especially seeing him open the door, quickly get the dog, and slam the door again. The very next door a lady let us in and share a message with her and said she wouldnt mind us coming back and teaching her. 

Quote of the week again comes from my great patience building companion. "Elder Leyerle, why in the heck were you doing laundry at like 2 this morning?" quickly and sharply he said "it wasnt 2, it was 4." Just loads of fun stuff eh? haha there is never a dull moment it seems.

Scripture of the week comes from Ether 6:3,10
" And thus the Lord caused stones to shine in darkness, to give light unto men, women, and children, that they might not cross thegreat waters in darkness.
 10 And thus they were driven forth; and no monster of the sea could break them, neither whale that could mar them; and theydid have light continuallywhether it was above the water or under the water."
The Lord gives us light, so we dont have to cross the waters, or life, in darkness. Whether we are on top of life and having fun, or under a bunch of trials and tribulations, We have the light of Jesus Christ to look to, to help us through every situation of life. The Atonement of Christ covers all! How great is that?!
Have a great week!
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
