This week has been great once again! And little Wyatt was born! That is amazing. I can't wait to hold that little mister. So you say he has a mouth like mine? That serves Whitney right for making fun of my ghetto lips. Just kidding Whitney! That is amazing though. What a special time in all of our lives to welcome a new born baby into the world. So fresh from our Heavenly Parents' presence. I'm sure there was a special spirit that was about him when he was born and first held. I hope and fully expect to feel that little boy's spirit when I get to hold him soon. What a blessing our family has received!
to report on my week, it has been alright. I have had a lot on my mind but
things are great nonetheless. The work has been a bit slower. I credit that to
having four exchanges this week. I was out of the area quite a bit so Elder
McMurray had to take the area over, which he isn't too familiar with so it was
hard for him. Oh well. I was able to perform a baptismal interview in Hayfork. A
man I interviewed in November that wasn't ready at the time, but when I interviewed him this time he was ready to go and ready to fully accept the
Gospel of Christ and live accordingly. He is a great guy and will be a great
addition to that little branch up there.
The week has been good though, we have
to push back our date for [one of our investigators] because he wasn't able to make it to church and
he still has to work on some things. I really hope we can help him be baptized
and enter into covenants with God. It will bless his and his wife's life.
ward council in our family ward is doing some amazing things. Everyone is
putting forth their best effort and miracles are happening. I bet this ward will
have 10 baptisms this year. Which is really good in our mission and extremely
good for Redding. So I told you about the short transfer right? It ends in three
weeks which is so crazy. And then we get a bunch of 18 year old missionaries.
That will be so crazy. I really want to train one so bad! We will see what
happens come transfer time.
What else is new? Not much actually. The work has
been slower but that is okay. It has been refining me and has put me in the
position where the Lord can humble me and teach me new things that will help me
for the rest of my life. I'm grateful to be in this position up here in Redding.
I love it up here so much, the people are amazing. I love working with the
members and they are doing great things. I love being able to work 24/7 for the
Lord Jesus Christ. What an honor. This is something that I never will forget. It
has changed my heart and built my faith. I know where my life is headed and that
is because I have put my trust in the one and only true God. He will continue to
guide me as long as I heed the spiritual promptings that He gives me. I love
that we have the spirit to lead and guide us. We are so blessed to be a part of
this wonderful church. I invite you all to thank God everyday of your life that
you are a part of this church. I have been trying that and everyday I do with a
sincere heart my appreciation and love of this church grows. I love you all and I'm thankful for the service and great example you provide for me. Have a great
