Here is a sad story for you all. I started out a draft of my official Weekly Report in the middle of the week and finished it out last night and then right before we left for the church, I deleted the whole thing! (accidentally). And it is lost forever.
I will sum it up in one paragraph. We have been busy visiting auxiliary leaders, what we do is we’ll study the section in the Red Handbook 2 that describes their calling, and we find things in there that we can help them with or that apply to missionary work, and so far we have had great experiences meeting with the Sunday School president, Relief society, young men’s president, young women’s, etc. We still have a few more to do this week!
We helped Bro Rawley and Sis Rawley paint their house on Wednesday and guess what immediate blessing I got!! (besides getting to paint). We needed to buy keyboards for entering in records to our ipads, and he gave me his that he doesn’t use!! You get 10,000 blessings every time you serve. well not that many. but you still get blessings, and the biggest one is that you get to be a blessing to someone else!
Ok it is just too sad to me that I am rewriting all of this so I will end now with a hymn that I really liked in church yesterday, “The Light Divine.”
Father, let thy light divine
Shine on us, we pray.
Touch our eyes that we may see;
Teach us to obey.
Ours the sacred mission is
To bear thy message far.
The light of faith is in our hearts,
Truth our guiding star.
I hope I can do what I need to to bless the people here and be sincere in the things I do. I love each of you and hope we will all keep seeking God through prayer and obedience and loving those around us.
Got to drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway today, here is a picture of the view from Utah Mountain (that is where our ward mission leader lives) and from today. Beautiful!!!
