I think one of the biggest and most important lessons I've learned this week is that even through our trials if we don't doubt our testimony, in the end it will be for our good, but if we do doubt our testimony our trials will have no point other than to make us suffer and eventually we will lose our testimony. I don't know if that makes sense and is relative to you people but just remember, don't doubt what you already know when hard times come!
This week i was able to go on an exchange and work with a really new missionary which was a lot of fun. We worked really hard and saw a few tender-mercies. We were walking through a trailer park and it was really windy and cold and we saw a guy on his porch talking on his phone and we decided even though he was busy he probably still needed to hear about the restored Gospel so we just walked up and waved at him and stood there waiting until he got off the phone haha awkward but it worked! he then invited us to sit with him on the porch and him and a friend proceeded to pound us with doctrinal questions and tried to confuse us about everything they could think of but it was really comforting being able to rely on the spiritual witness that i have received of the Book of Mormon and not having to rely on the philosophies of man. They could receive so much more knowledge and blessings if they would just ask God if it was true! but they weren't willing but maybe someday. ( i just picture Ashley's face saying "Sucks to suck! haha) but it was a pretty good exchange and we learned a lot together.
Thursday we spent the New years celebrating and partying hard haha not really i drank too bottles of Martinellis by myself and we went to bed at like 10 haha HAPPY NEW YEAR!
But this week over all was good and we are starting to teach a few new people which is good. We've had a few cool experiences finding people and getting the opportunity to teach them, we teach so many people the first lesson and then never find them again haha but all we can do is carry on!
Love you guys, hope you have a great week!
