Today we are going to play hockey! Well maybe, I might just be using the stick to be able to stay up... but it should be fun! I just need to go curling to complete the Hosing process. I can't believe it will be 14 months tomorrow since we came out, seems like maybe half of that. So this past week was pretty good. we were able to keep busy and went hard with passing out the He is the Gift cards, and this week will do even better with that, and hopefully something will come of it!
This week we got to help clean our new church building in preparation for its opening, which will hopefully be this upcoming sunday. It's definitely the nicest building I have been in and its going to be great to bring investigators too! Plus we are really excited to play basketball on the new hard wood floor!
We also got to go on exchanges this week and I went with an elder that is going home after this week because he has reached the ripe old age of 2 years. so I picked his brain and asked him what his biggest advice was and we talked about charity. And I completely agree with him. Charity is something that makes the world go because it is literally the Love of God, the strongest love that one can ever have. As we seek to develop charity and ask in prayer for that gift, God will begin to bless us with it and we will begin to see everybody as they truly are, sons and daughters of our heavenly father. Charity is especially important on the mission too, it just makes it so much better! We should all seek to develop it!
We also got to teach the Plan of Salvation this past week. Just take a minute and think about how blessed we are to have the knowledge that we do. Like life would literally suck and be hopeless and without point without it. Its great to be able to know what our purpose is in life and to know what will happen after this life.
Scripture of the week is 1 John 4:7-9. Go and read it! it goes along with the Christmas season. God gave us his only begotten son so that would have the opportunity to live with him again. Its been great privilege to share the christmas message with everyone we talk too.
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
