Dear Family and Friends,
It was a good week. The week was difficult but we still got the work done. The branch is working really well together and helping us missionaries all the time. We did service Tuesday for an older couple. We helped in their garden and helped cook lunch as well. We had a good visit with them. We ended with a blessing and then started our long trip back down the mountain.
It is very beautiful to drive though the mountains and it is easier to feel closer to God. We had district meeting down in Jasper and the relief society president provided lunch which was very kind.
The trip to Jasper is a long one as well. We did a lot of stops on the way back to visit with people to save miles on our truck. Our area is just so large. We had good lessons this week and visited a lot of less actives. The work is good and I am glad to be serving here in Pikeville, TN.
Alma 34:9 For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; for according to the great plan of the Eternal God there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish; yea, all are hardened; yea, all are fallen and are lost, and must perish except it be through the atonement which it is expedient should be made.
