Week 19

This week I had an awesome opportunity to serve in Des Moins with my trainer for a day!  He's recovering from some sort of injury he got playing basketball, so he's been wearing a boot, but we went out and tracted in the early afternoon anyway.  One lady opened the door and was just in tears because of various things that have happened in her life recently.  We talked to her for at least 40 minutes and helped her feel God's love for her. We shared a message about charity with her from the Book of Mormon.  She said our timing was perfect and that she felt so much better.  God's timing is perfect!

Back in West Seattle, we had an interesting few days.  Some Muslim missionaries saw us walking and pulled over to talk to us.  We talked for a long time!  Really cool guys.  They asked us to say a prayer with them so we did in Arabic and apparently that's all it takes to become Muslim!  So Elder Skelton and I accidentally became Muslim.  They gave us a hug and then asked us to make them an offering so we gave them a Book of Mormon.

We tracted into a member the other day and she invited us in and gave us hot chocolate!  So awesome.

We've been working with A a lot.  He's trying to quit smoking this week!  It's been hard for him but we're praying that it works out.

Last night we had a meeting at the mission office.  They read off a list of 15 missionaries who will be training a new missionary starting next week and I'm on that list!  I'm excited for it!

This week I was reading one of the more popular chapters in the Book of Mormon and it really stuck out to me.  Moroni 7:47 says "But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him."  The pure love of Christ is shown by loving other people.  When we love other people, we love Christ, and when we love Christ, we love other people.  They are the same thing.  Pure love is unselfish.  This is the love Christ has for us, and that we should strive to attain.

Love you all!!
