My comp and I get along very well, Juanita is a great place, I like the area it is the smallest in the mission and has two sets of missionaries, we divide it with the zone leaders, so its even smaller, slow but a good place we actually have a baptism on the 28th for “G”, he is 17 and really wants to be baptized 🙂 we had a new member fireside that we went to and i saw all my companions except elder Griffiths, 😦 elder Anderson (served in SeaTac with me and E. Griffiths) said that im his favorite companion, so that made me really happy, I saw “P” there 🙂 he is getting baptized this Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that totally made my day, and I also sat next to members from Sammamish 2nd ward my greenie area 🙂 it was a very spiritually powerful fireside, all the missionaries sang in it, and president Choi thinks of all of us as his Children! he is the best, and a very spiritual man and im grateful to be able to serve with him! but yeah the fireside was great!!!!
The members in this ward are great very missionary minded and love the lord! and we are having a special visit from someone in the seventies? unknown… next week. 🙂 all is going well here in Juanita! and we finally get to go to the temple again on the 17th of this month!!!!!!!!!!!! Wahoooooooooo 🙂 not much else happened! the work will move on and if we trust God and follow the spirit it will lead us to those who are ready. In my ward the members are fasting and praying for opportunities to do missionary work and now are waiting for guidance to work, the scriptures teach that faith leads to action right? so if you will act and follow the promptings of the spirit, you will find someone, friend, neighbor, anyone, this means you go and get to know your neighbors, get involve in the community, befriend all your neighbors and show them your love and by doing so you show them Heavenly Fathers love, 🙂 the wonderful part is the joy you will feel as you strive to help them by being friends and by making them feel like they are our family 🙂 you will experience great joy even if they do not join the church, because you will have a lifelong friend and when they turn around and get baptized you will have joy with them in heaven. if you desire to work, YOU ARE CALLED, members and missionaries! let us all press forward in the work of the Lord! and place our faith in God and Jesus Christ and all things will be possible 🙂 and lets fulfill our responsibility as members in the church to strengthen those that are our brothers and sisters, active, less-active, and non-members, if you will do this I know you will be blessed, God loves you and he lives, this is his church and is the true church, the same church Christ had in his days on earth, and the only place with the authority to do the sacred ordinances, may we all come closer to heavenly father, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
