Sorry folks - I posted this late in the week (Jeff)
Howdy and Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!! Thanks for all you do. Sorry, but my Mom takes the cake for the best Mom.
A FANTASTIC week here in Fianarantsoa. It really was. Work-wise, it was the best by far. Weve been building a program and visiting tons of members. Literally we are trying to visit every member in the branch, active or inactive. Everyone. Its way fun. Just annoying sometimes. Like I was saying last week, just the tiniest littlest things, are knocking people of the boat. And they just dont wanna reach out for the people trying to pull them back in. BUT, we are seeing some progress and have reactivated a couple families!
CODY IS GOING TO FRANCE!! Cant believe he already has his call and that I am that old. Im so excited for him.
Well, Skyping this morning with the fan was great. Can't put it any other way. Really weird though because I'll be on the other side of the camera with them in 4 weeks...
Big time news this week was the WORLD CUP OF FIANARANTSOA. We had been planning it for weeks. The two branches had an incredible battle of skill at the field here at the train station. I was so pumped for it. I could barely focus all Saturday morning haha. It was honestly the worst field I have ever played on, but it was so fun. We even interviewed some people about the match HAHAHA. South branch (mine) came out with the victory 4-2!!! I ended up not even playing that much. The referee got a little annoyed so I took over haha. But it was a great time, had tons of investigators come, and got a victory over the North Branch!!
Way short this week, but on a spiritual note.....
READ YOUR SCRIPTURES. Not just every now and then, but everyday. Im talking 10 minutes. That's it. I can honestly say that we might only have 10 people(at most) in this Branch that read their scriptures everyday. It's no wonder that people are lost in "the mist of darkness." They arent holding on to the rod. A lot of people have been complaining,"I havent gotten an answer. God doesnt answer." Do you read the scriptures everyday? "No." There is your problem. We expect this grande angelic visitation with an answer, but yet it is already written on paper in our own homes. God has already repeated himself hundreds of times. And most of the time, our answer IS ALREADY IN THERE!!! If we want to know what to do in life, what to study, what path to take, how to get back to heaven, etc, we need to read the words of Christ. They tell us everything. They tell us ALL THINGS WHAT WE SHOULD DO.
