doggie kisses and cement.

Monday- We only had 1/2 a p day but it was still good! We got to email and do our shopping. Then I had to update the Recent convert list for the zone to send to the AP's. Then we went out to the Roach's place for FHE and dinner! It was a good night and I love that family!

Tuesday- We were pretty flat out on this day! We started the morning off by doing some service where we mowed a less active member's lawn (jungle) and it was good! Then we went and saw Byron and we read the Book of Mormon with him and gave him a blessing to help him quit smoking! It was a solid visit and he is progressing well! Then after that we went and helped out Lez and Pat with moving some boxes that was good! Then we went and did some more visits to Klaus (guy with no legs) and the Johnstones which was good!

Wednesday- We did another day of concreting at the Roach's house and it went really well! It was fun to get to do some manual labor haha! Then we went and had some lunch up in his back paddock and it was sick! Then we went to MCM and stayed at the chapel after that to help out with combined mutual! We helped out with the minute to win it games and it was a lot of fun haha we even got to participate in some of them and it was legit!

Thursday- We went and helped the Johnstones to move some rubbish to their curb because they are moving to a new house. Then we went and saw Brendon and watched the Restoration video with him which went swell! Then we went to do some service for Jared and Latisha, we chopped some wood and it was a good workout haha! Then we had some dinner with them and also shared a Mormon Message with Jared. Then we did our weekly planning for the next week!

Friday- We had ZTM in Nowra which was really good! Elder Hunt and I trained on how to listen better and use scriptures in lessons to be able to resolve people's concerns! Then we had a lovely zone p day afterwards at Hyams beach! It has the whitest sand ever!! We just chilled and played games with the whole zone which was fun! Then I started trade offs with Elder Davis because he is a district leader and I have to do trade offs with the DL's! We went home and taught Robert and Nicola about the commandments and they are living them, and are starting to live the ones they weren't living already! He is so ready for baptism and things are looking good for the 24th of September for him!

Saturday- Started the day off with some service for Byron! He still hasn't smoked and he is feeling way good he says!! Such a miracle and a blessing from the Lord! Then we went and did some finding for the rest of the day but it just was a tough day for finding haha no luck! We got to go and have dinner and a lesson with Jared and Latisha after that so that was nice haha! After that we drove to Nowra to switch back companions!

Sunday- Byron, Nicola, and Robert were all at church. Byron still hasn't smoked and Robert is stoked for his baptism! Church went really good and I enjoyed the talks given in Sacrament meeting! After church and ward council we went and had some lunch before going out to tract. We had a good time tracting but no luck haha! Then we went and visited the Mackie family and they ended up feeding us dinner haha so that was a blessing!

My spiritual thought this week is about yielding ourselves to the will of God! Mosiah 3:19 tells us exactly what we need to do so that we can yield ourselves to God, "For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father."
I love that scripture and I know that those attributes are essential to our Eternal Progression! Love you all have a good week :)
