"Even if what you had planned doesn't work out God will bless you"
Man This week has been Crazy!! P day was pretty normal but on Tuesday we drove to Merritt to go on Exchange with Elder Walker and it reminded me of old times because Merritt didn't have a car so me and Elder Walker walked everywhere in Merritt but luckily Merritt is pretty small and not as big a Kamloops but it was still stinking cold so I was dying but it was really good we went and taught a potential investigator named Dan the Bearman and him and his roommate are stinking CRAZY!! Dan was telling us how we where put here by aliens and how the wise men where guided by a spaceship to Jesus and then his roommate went outside and cussed out a dog across the street and the weirdest thing is this is typical Merritt but it was really Awesome to because we set a baptismal date with one of their investigators so that was pretty sweet! then we had to get picked up the next day to go to District Meeting and then we went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders and I went with Elder Anderson to Vernon which was pretty Crazy because Elder Anderson just got to Vernon last Transfer so he doesn't know where anything is and we got lost and went to Salmon Arm which is luckily on a half hour away from Vernon and then all our our appointments fell through for the night and so we went tracting and we tracted into an Active member! Yeah an Active member and they invited is in so we had an unexpected member visit which was pretty Awesome! Even though it was kind of embarrassing because we should know where active members live but it was cool and Elder Anderson is way Awesome! Then the next day we went tracting and ran to a guy on the street named Shaun an talked to him for about 20 minutes and he told us have he is an alcoholic and was sober for 17 years and just started drinking again and was looking for a way to over come it and to get sober again. So we talked to him for a while and set up a return appointment and it was really sweet. It just shows that if you are doing what you are supposed to be doing and even if what you had planned doesn't work out God will bless you if you just keep doing what your supposed to do. After we exchanged back we weekly planned and had correlation meeting and talked about an open house that we will be doing in February just as something to get non members to come to the church and see what it is about. Then we pretty much just tracted the whole day and apparently we tracted some where the JW's just tracted because people where not happy with us. I knocked on one door and the guy threatened to call the police on us for trespassing so it was pretty interesting but then we went to sister Collingridges house for dinner and it was so good but then we had a really Awesome lesson about the Book of Mormanand how important it is in our lives and how important it is to continually receive a personal witness that it is true. It was a really good lesson and the spirit was so strong it just felt Awesome! Nothing to interesting happened the rest of the week except our plans fell through after church until dinner so we went tracting and we found 6 people who invited us to come back and we could tell them more. So that was just another testimony builder that if we just keep doing what we are supposed to be doing even if things don't work out how we wanted them to God will bless us and will help us over come what ever is placed in front of us, 1 Nephi 3:7. Hope Everyone has a great week.
