Hello Family and Friends,
We had a good week this week! We are still praying and searching for more people to teach, but we are working hard and doing our best to teach more people.
Here are some of the highlights of the week:
We had a P day with a lot of the missionaries in the zone to celebrate one of the new missionaries birthday. That was a really fun time! P day's are the best when you get to hang out with lots of missionaries! We had MLC again, it was a great meeting. President Forbes talked a lot about Finding, Planning, and helping struggling missionaries. We took lots of notes and it will really help out the zone from what we learned! We had an exchange with the Anoka Elders on Thursday, I went with Elder Gray. He is a great missionary and he is brand new which is awesome! We contacted a guy who only speaks Spanish so I was able to use what I learned from Kunzler's class a little hahah. It was pretty cool! We have a guy named tom Olson that we are teaching. He is a crazy old man. He has a hard time actually listening to us and what we have to say. So it's very interesting to teach him! But I am grateful for the opportunity I have to teach him.
This week I was thinking a lot about the scripture Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
I really love this scripture! We need to take a step back and really think is our foundation Jesus Christ? If it is, this scripture promises us that we can withstand all the things that Lucifer will throw at us. I am so grateful for the Savior Jesus Christ. He has done so much for all of us. Being able to help people understand how much he cares about all of us is one of my favorite things! I love wearing my name tag that has His name on it. We are truly his representatives.
One more scripture I wanted to share was Matthew 16:25: "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. I love you all! I love this church! If you do not yet know for yourself that this is the true church, I invite you to read the evidence which is the Book of Mormon. Make this week a great one! I love you all!
Love, Elder Anderson
