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

Christmas Miracles

     This week was crazy especially with Christmas. Most of our investigators that we are teaching told us to come back after Christmas so we did not have too many lessons this week but we were able to meet with someone that we met a couple weeks ago named Joes and it was a really good lesson. He has been really trying to change his life and to become better and he has been thinking about going back to church. He was a little skeptical about the Book of Mormon but we were able to explain it and told him how we just invite people to read it and to pray to ask God if it is true and he was very willing to find out for himself so it was a really good lesson!

     We were also able to meet with a guy names Matt that the YSA sisters found and he has been really prepared. He recently got into a really bad car accident and knew that he should not be alive but God saved him for some reason so he has recently quite drinking and smoking to change his life for the better and for his kids. It was such a great lesson and we had a great member there who was able to testify about how this message that we share will be able to help him change for the better and help him find true joy in his life. It was such a great lesson and our member gave him a ride and told him about church and Matt was really excited and wanted to come this Sunday! 
   This year we were also not allowed to visit with members all day on Christmas so Elder Hunter and I have some bikes so we took those out for most of the day and did a lot of finding and what was one of the Christmas Miracles was no one yelled at us for knocking on their door on Christmas which was awesome! We also dropped by a less active and he told us how he had called us a few hours ago and we never got a call but we just decided to drop by which was inspired! He told us how every time he needs the missionaries to come by we just show up! Then we were able to teach him and his wife, who is not a member, and had a really good lesson and what was even cooler about it was his wife normally does not sit in on the lesson and then after that we went to a dinner appointment and the member, The Gordon's, had their whole family, who are not members, there and we were able to share a great message about families and how important they are!
   This week has not been normal but has been really cool! Christmas is really different as a missionary but it is really great because all we do is teach about Christ even on Christmas!

Love Elder Slack

Time has come for new shoes

Had an interesting little chat with Will in regards to the 'ton' of snow they got in Abottsford

to me
yep they fit really well though and are waterproof! which is nice because it snowed a ton here yesterday during church and when I say a ton I mean like 2-3 inches so not that much.

well, when you grow up in Mesquite, 2-3 inches is a ton
