Week 55: Let it Snow

Let it snow, the phrase that every normal Canadian absolutely despises. But the white stuff started yesterday and will most likely be there for the rest of winter. Should be fun! Not much happened this week. We had all of our appointments cancel for various reasons, but we were able to do lots of service, so that was fun. We have been helping a non member build a pond in her front yard which has been great. She owns an ice cream shop so we have been getting free ice cream! And we met this absolutely off his rocker East Indian who talked to us for about 30 min as we were tracting. He said that he was going to give us the lesson, not the other way around. It took everything in us not to laugh the entire time. But as crazy as he was he called out Elder Leyerle and guessed his birthday, right on the dot, haha he was so shocked for the rest of the day. Fun stuff that we get to encounter here in Beaumont. 

I also gained an extreme dislike for a phrase that lots of people use to rationalize disobedience. "Oh I don't care, i go home in xx days. The planes not coming any faster!" i really hate it. its too bad to see missionaries who get super lazy and disobedient at the end of their missions. But I guess, these are the types of things to learn from and not the make the same mistakes. Every time I even think of rationalizing something, this past week especially, I get the thought, "Do you want your wife to be fat?" I thought it was pretty funny when I recognized it, and appropriate or not, it works! so I'll run with it.

Scripture of the week is Mormon 9:7-11,18-19,20. I won't put in all of it, but it's great stuff.

For do we not read that God is the same yesterdaytoday, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?10 And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves god who doth vary, anin whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves god who is not God of miracles.
18 And who shall say that JesuChrist did not do many mightmiraclesAnd there were manmighty miracles wrought by the hands of the apostles.
19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, say unto you he changeth notif so he would cease to be God; and he ceasetnot to be God, and is God of miracles.
God is a God of Miracles and works according to our faith. As we are dilligent  in keeping the commandments of God and have the faith, we will see all the many miracles wrought by God, whether big or small.
Have a great week
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
