|Elder Mitch Wilson, friend from high school|
Are we sometimes like the man drowning in the ocean, who can't seem to see the purpose of the rescue boat? I would say yes, definitely; and in a way I have felt like the man who realised later, all of the help being provided to him. During the mission and throughout the course of the last two years I have had a few poignant questions relating to gospel subjects, and I feel like I've sometimes suppressed the counsel and advice from others that Heavenly Father was sending to me as an answer to my prayers. The prominent advice I have received is first, to Trust in Heavenly Father, second, to stop being so hard on myself, and third, to stop worrying so much.

I feel like that counsel, to me, is like the rescue boats; help from a loving Heavenly Father who knows me and wants me to be happy. I am so thankful that Heavenly Father sends these boats of rescue to me and to all of us. Everyone, as some advice for the week, be careful not to miss the rescue God is trying to send you. Heavenly Father loves us completely, he wants us to be with him and he is going to help all of us with spiritual life rafts if we're humble. Heck I'm not perfect at this myself but I know that if we all trust in the Lord and give our best effort, he will help you!
|Making Omelets last night - They had jalapeños (spicy) but they were so good!|
Happenings this week, Mission conference in Paris, Exchanges with elder Van Tonder and Elder Traue, Extremely delicious home made omelets, and Visits to fun stores like Furet du Nord and Paul's Patisserie on P Day! Our amis are progressing well, and we have had more opportunities to go out finding new people to teach as well. Fun news; I saw my high school buddy Mitch Wilson at the Mission Conference this week! I regret that I can't write everything that happened in the week, but there is a brief summary, and I love you all, love the mission just as much, and you all go out and have a great, thankful week!
