Savage Staunton

Man I can't even think of what happened this week, it definitely was one of the less eventful ones out here. We have been trying really hard to develop a solid teaching pool, we don't really have many investigators right now. We have Cheyla who is doing awesome but she can't come to church so she can't be baptized, and Jordan believes the Book of Mormon is true but he also thinks that God told him he doesn't need to be baptized. So those are the only people we have right now. 

There's this guy named Jeremy who has been coming to church for 2 years who isn't a member, we call people like that eternigators (eternity + investigator). He has some things in his life that need to change before he can get baptized but there is nothing the missionaries can do at this point, it's all on him. So we decided to drop him and hand him off to his home teachers....yes this guy isn't a member and he has home teachers, I'm pretty sure half the people in the ward think he's a member. 

So due to our very small teaching people we get to do a lot of finding!! It's gonna be tough but I know that there are people out there who are ready for us, we just have to find them!!

A scripture that really stood out to me this week is Alma 7:15

 Yea, I say unto you come and fear not, and lay aside every sin, which easily doth beset you, which doth bind you down to destruction, yea, come and go forth, and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism.

I just love how simple this scripture puts it. We don't have to be afraid to lay aside the sins that easily beset us because if we show God we are willing to change, he will help us!! The scripture talks about being baptized, but if you read the sacrament prayers we "witness" to god that we are willing to do these things every week by taking the sacrament!! I love my mission so much and I love helping people come closer to Jesus Christ. Love you guys!!

No photos this week so I'll include two funny videos. I'll have pictures next week though!!
