This week has been an interesting week, Tuesday I spent part of the day in Riverton doing service. Then me and elder Ma’ake had to drive to Casper to pick up our new greenies, the drive between Riverton and Casper is 2 hours. I have never drive in Casper or been to the other side of Casper so I got lost trying to get to the mall so elder Ma’ake could do some shopping. When got our greenie at 10 that night, so we spent the night in the Hermona’s (Spanish sister missionary) apartment because they are in Fort Collins of the Temple open house. Got back the next day at 10 am. My Greenie is Elder O’Driscoll, he is from cache valley Utah, which it outside of Park city, he is only 4 hours away from home.
This week we have been able to help the Parkers, he needs to get clinic everyday to receive some treatments, so we’ve been helping them out all week because she can’t help him get up or push him around in the wheelchair because she just had a stroke. Had some success going through our old potential investigators list, and setup an appointment to see Scott this next week.
This quote from Elder Holland stuck out to me –
“When you struggle, when you are rejected, when you are spit upon and cast out and made a hiss and a byword, you are standing with the best life this world has ever known, the only pure and perfect life ever lived. You have reason to stand tall and be grateful that the Living Son of the Living God knows all about your sorrows and afflictions. The only way to salvation is through Gethsemane and on to Calvary. The only way to eternity is through Him—the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
