Ward Newsletter Article


Hey everybody!  So this week was pretty good.  Got quite a few new investigators and had some experiences I'll never forget.

Here is a preview of what I sent in to the ward news letter:  

As my time here in the mission field comes to a close I don't have all that much to say, mostly because until I have a moment for me and the Lord to sit down and talk about it I don't feel like I could give everything I've experienced and learned the right words.  There is a scripture that comes pretty close to summing everything up though.  Helaman 3:35 says: 

 'Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God.'

Over the course of my mission I have seen that all those who yield their hearts to God are those who are blessed the most, and who are brought closest to the Lord.  They begin to act like him, faith and light fills their lives, and the difference can be felt and seen.  That goes for missionaries, members, investigators....  Everyone.  We are are children of a loving Heavenly Father.  He has a plan for us.  Jesus Christ is central to that plan.  Jesus Chirst is our savior and redeemer.  Our example and our friend.  I love them both and all they have done for us.

Question of the Week:  Are Belgians crazy about their team in the UEFA tournament, or is it not a big deal?

Answer:  It is crazy right now with the European cup!  Belgium is doing really well and pretty much everywhere we go we see Belgian flags and decorations.  It is hard not to watch the games because they have all been at night and our apartment is really close to the Market square where they play all the games on a big screen.  But the Lord has been blessing us for our dedicating ourselves to the work, and it helps give me conversation starters to ask about the game :)
