Wonderful Week in Texas-Happy Thanksgiving

Howdy y'all! Haha, I love being a Texas missionary, I get to say howdy y'all, it's the best, I know y'all are jealous :) 
Anyway! Hey! I hope y'all have been having a great day, a great life, and all that, if you haven't been, cheer up! Life is great, the Savior is real, and peace will come. 

Actually, I've been studying a lot about peace this week and how we can find it, and how we can keep it. The people of King Benjamin were able to find peace in Mosiah 4:2-3, they found it after repenting, having faith in Christ that they can change. Once they gave their all to Him, peace came upon them. The way we can keep peace in our lives is if we keep the Lords commandments, simple as that. Also, when we strive to work our little hearts out for Christ, peace can be found there. 
 So, as far as missionary work goes, it wasn't the most exciting week, a lot of biking a talking to people, trying to find some good people to teach. We did find this one guy who is really cool! He's just got out of prison about 5 months ago, he's 49 and he's spent over 20 years in prison, but he's so humble and awesome! Every time we've stopped by to see him he says we cheered him up. We also got to teach a lesson to a baptist guy. We brought a member with us, and the two of them really did most of the talking, we stuck to the bible for that lesson. He wasn't wanting to hear anything outside of it. But it was alright! The member knew exactly how to teach out of the bible, something I've struggled with a bit, and he helped us out a ton. He even gave us a lesson on how to teach out of the bible after the lesson, he's a great guy, his family is awesome too! 

I hope y'all have a great Thanksgiving this week, remember to count your many blessings, one by one! I sure do love y'all, but I love the lord so much more. He is absolutely amazing, and I hope each of you are striving each and every day to get to know him and your Heavenly Father more. 
Lots of love!
