So this week was very fun and exciting like all weeks are when you are a missionary:) I wish everyone the very best and hope that you all are having a great day as well as having fun this week.
I would like to pose for a question this week and it comes from my mission President. He says, "What is your desire?" He also asked us to pray about what we desire most, whether to have missionary experiences or to think about going home. President is a very smart guy and I know he is lead by the Lord to do what is right for the mission:).
SO this week in Valdosta . . .
Tuesday: Elder Mashburn and I were able to make contact with with a guy named William. This guy was a media referral that wanted a Bible and a Book of Mormon. He is a super nice guy that just wants to make it to heaven. We weren't able to meet with him for very long but we are going to keep trying to make it work with all our schedules. We were also able to meet with a younger couple named Jessica and Vinnie. They are a family that has some struggles right now. We met with both the husband and wife to help them see how good the gospel is and how it really does bless families:). We had a nice hour and a half talk with them and they said we could come back:). We also went to see another referral that we got that said we could come back but she ended up not being home so there was this other lady named Ashley that me and Elder Benesh had met. She lives right next to where we were at. Ashley was home and we had a nice talk with her about the gospel. We started out by saying that we had been by a ton of times to talk and check up on things but that she wasn't there or didn't answer. She came out and told us, "I have been running from the Lord and now I just want to stop and get back with the Lord." This was music to our ears. It was a great day:).
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday So this day was a great day because we were able to meet some new contacts and that was awesome:) Being able to see the change that people want to make in their lives for the better is so awesome:) Seeing their curiosity about the church or the Book of Mormon is so awesome that it just makes me see that one day these people will come to the fullness of the gospel. Most of these people that we meet don't have a solid background so it will take a few months but if we go in with the right attitude and bring faith then they can see the true meaning of the Gospel.
Saturday- Today we had a ward activity and that was honestly the funnest time we had:) Also we did some games for the primary kids and that was fun. They tried to shoot us with water guns and that was so fun for the kids to do. We then went to do service for a lady in the ward. She was needing big strong guys to come and help move stuff and we did that for the rest of the day:).
I hope ya'll are having a great time at home with the holidays upon us. Today we are going to be held captive in our apartments because of Halloween:).
Love you guys and hope this week you can see miracles in your everyday life:)
Love Elder Mac (they like this name better)
