Aug 1 & 8, 2016

Hey there everyone!!

I hope that you all have had a good 2 weeks! Sorry this is late, but I had a lot going on! The last couple weeks have gone good! We have really just been getting our investigators ready for baptism and helping them understand the doctrine. 

I have been really happy here in Suhum. I do have an idea as to when I will leave though, so I am sad about that even though its a while from now (probably December or January). I love the work up here. Saturday went well, even though Bro. Adam and Bro. Andrew didn't get baptized. Fortunately there was someone from the other area that got baptized and we were able to enjoy seeing that. We have been able to extend a baptismal date to Joshua, a 15 year old boy who has been coming to church for a while. A lot of the people we wanted to set baptismal dates for weren't around so we didnt get to do that, but all is good. We will hopefully do it this week. We have been helping a lot getting the new church building here in Suhum ready to go. Its a really nice building and I know the members will be blessed by having it here. Today for P-day we had meat pies (basically empanadas) and Fanice (ice cream) for our meal here in Kof town, it was really good.

I had an interesting experience this past week. For about a week and a half I had been looking for my razor cord. I had misplaced it and couldn't find it. I never had any time to look for it until a few days ago. Then as I really started searching for it I became more and more upset and frustrated that I could not find it. After looking everywhere I got upset and felt angry and defeated. I gave a tap to my bed frame and sat down on the floor in defeat. All of a sudden a voice in my head said "check the drawer you are sitting next to". I was going to say no, but then I thought, sure, why not. I've got nothing to lose. To my complete suprise as I pulled the drawer out I saw the cord. I was stunned and then went very silent and still for a while. I knew at that point what the Lord had just done, I had been humbled. I was so determined that I could find it by MYSELF that I didn't think I needed the Lord's help. I was once again reminded that even in the small things we need the Lord's help. We should never forget to call on His name. Even when we don't think we need to. I am so thankful for this experience because it reinforced to me that I need to always remember the Lord no matter what. I give this same charge to all of you as well. Never forget the Lord and His almighty power. It is a real thing. I love you all and hope that you have a good week.
