Love Finds A Way

Hey Y'all! I hope wherever you are you've had a good week, it was a good one out here in Texas, not too much happened though. The first part of the week was a little rough, we had a hard time getting into people's houses, but we were able to teach a couple people the restoration, one of them was a lady from Michigan, she seems to be rather interested! We'll keep going to see her and her family. We first found them by tracting into her husband and kids out in their pool.  Her husband doesn't speak much English, while the rest of the family doesn't speak much Spanish, I'm not sure how that works but hey, love finds a way! 
We did a whole lot of service this week. On Thursday we helped a family in our ward  texture their wall. On Friday we, along with the Humble elders, helped with the painting. We did that in the afternoon, and afterwards we had President interview training, which went really well! It was nice to talk to President Drake again, and hear from the AP's. They gave a lesson on being Preach My Gospel missionaries. A large part of it centered on the Atonement, and how it should be the main thing we think of as we go out and work. I've been thinking for a bit about the change of heart that's spoken of in Alma 5, and how that change is only made possible through Christ. That's the place we, as missionaries, want people to end up, we want them to conclude that they can honestly change who they are because of Christ's sacrifice. If they can get there, then they're set for eternity! 
Saturday was an extremely busy day full of service as well, we woke up at 4:15 am to go help set up traffic cones and barriers for a child triathlon that was going on over in Eagle Springs, which is the APs area. They asked us to help them out with the triathlon throughout the day, we helped set up, then we helped direct where the little kids went off biking and running, it reminded me a lot of herding calves in a corral! Then we helped them clean it all up, it was fantastic. 
That's about it for this week, thanks to everyone that's been cheering me on back home, it really does mean a lot to me. I'll keep on moving forward out here with faith in Christ, and I hope y'all do the same back home! I sure do love y'all but I love the Lord even more,
