You are not alone

"You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you...He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you, because you are His Him earnestly, and you will find Him" -Pres Uchtdorf

He is the Gift

Well, this week has been really Awesome!! We got our new car on Monday and Elder Tolman finally came up to Kamloops so now we are in a Tri which is a little weird because our house is set up for 2 people not 3 so we have had to adjust some stuff to fit 3 people and now our bedroom is pretty much just beds and no space. Elder Tolman is really cool and he is from Coquitlam, which is just outside of Vancouver. He is Autistic but a very high functioning Autistic so he has to be in a Tri. But he is really cool and he farts like crazy. Really I do not know how he does it, like I didn’t know that someone could have that much gas in their body but it’s actually pretty funny.

  We have had a ton of lessons this week with investigators, less actives and members. It has been really awesome and we have been super blessed, unfortunately we do not have anyone that is really close to baptism but we have found a lot of new people to teach and I’m kind of starting to get comfortable with knocking on doors which is nice because that is something that I really struggled with at the beginning of my mission and I still get pretty nervous but it is getting easier. We have had some awesome lessons this last week especially with members because we have been sharing the "He is the Gift" video and really talking about the true meaning of Christmas and how this is a holiday to celebrate Christ and to show others the love that Christ has for them through service and through gifts. One thing that I really thought of is how much I got caught up in the other things that happen with Christmas. We should always remember that Christmas is to celebrate Christ because he is so important to us and he has shown us so much love and continues to show us endless love. There are a lot of people that do not believe or even know the love that Christ and during Christmas people are a lot more receptive to the message of the Gospel and we need to share the gift to help those who do not know the joy that comes from Christ and his Atonement. Well, I have to go and I hope you all have a very awesome Christmas and Share the Gift!! If you haven’t watched it GO WATCH "He is the Gift" and then share it!!!

Love Elder Slack
