Dear Family and Friends,
It was a busy week. I received my new companion on Tuesday, Elder Tracy from Salt Lake City. He is the second oldest of five children in his family. We did a lot of service again this week. Some gardening and cleaning out gutters and I was sun burnt by the end of it. We did the gutter cleaning for a older lady member who is from Yugoslavia. She was so funny. I tried not to imitate her accent, but it was hard.
Some news from the mission is they are splitting the McMinnville Zone to McMinnville and Cookeville Stakes. We got a new Branch President and the wife gave a testimony, she talked about how hard it was to get the kids ready for church, well the kids were wondering why it was so important to get there on time this Sunday, and one of the kids asked if it was the 2nd coming, it was super funny. I had a fun week and was able to share my testimony a lot. The Lord loves you and is always looking after you and knows what things you are going through.
Read this at Church of Christ Bible Study. It really hit me.
35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. (John 12)
