Both elder Silva and I are staying! At the end of this transfer I will
have been in Morgan City for 9 months! I might as well buy a house and
get my records moved here! But, I'm actually glad to be staying. I
have some unfinished business to take care of before I leave. Things
are actually starting to pick up! We are trying a bunch of new things.
They seem to be working and we are finding some really awesome people. We have been working really hard on "filling people's needs." We first need to help people with whatever it is that they need before we just throw all this Jesus stuff in their face. Cause if there is something that is bothering them or something that's giving them stress, then they won't want to hear what we have to say. For example, Saturday was our filling needs day. We played basketball with all the neighborhood kids. Then we went and helped this widow build a fence for her dog. Then we helped Alex with his trailer and we went fishing with them afterwards! Filling needs :) Because of helping people get over their concerns or problems, it has opened new doors. So those miracles that I mentioned last week are
starting to happen. I can see the hand of the Lord in everything we do. Lately I've been hearing a lot of people saying how they have lost a loved one or someone they knew. It's a sad and dreary time when a life is lost. Sometimes we don't understand why someone we love that is a good person has to die when there are tons of really bad people running around. I read Alma 14:10-11 and it gave me some comfort.
I encourage y'all to read it. But I know that our loved ones are in
a better place, a place of happiness and a place of rest from all pains
and sorrows. We will see them again. I can promise y'all that. I can
promise you that because the Savior lives and he suffered so we can see
our loved ones again and live with them forever.
