Week 60

Hey Everyone!

It was a pretty good week! We had a lot of service lined up, a stake carnival (this is the best stake to be in for parties because the Tongan, Samoan, and Spanish wards make so much food!), and we had a zone conference too. We were busy!

This transfer the mission made a real big push to have every area in the mission have a baptism. A lot of good things are happening! Historically Seattle zone doesn't struggle so much, but it's been a different story the past 6 months or so. So this past week, to try and get something going, we had a blitz in Normandy Park! All the missionaries here showed up and we spent two hours out looking for people to teach. It was pretty sweet and pretty unifying for us as a zone.

We had an awesome zone conference! President gave a training about the importance of the little things in life. He said "If you can't do the little things in life right, how will you ever get the big things right?!" Then he talked about making our beds. He's a funny guy! "If you want to change the world, start by making your bed!"

This week I was reading in Alma 17, where the King's flocks get scattered and all of his servants start crying like babies! Then Ammon comes in and fixes everything, he gets all the flocks back together and everything's good again. It made me think: "what kind of servant am I? What do I do when my flocks get scattered?" It seems like when something in our lives gets tripped up, we naturally start saying "Why me?", when we really should be asking "what" questions. That's what Ammon did! He looked at the situation and said "alright, what can I do?" Ammon was proactive! That was a big life lesson for me, straight from the good ol' Book of Mormon!
