How is everyone doing?? Ready for school to be out?
This week we got to do service at a wildlife sanctuary called Flamingo Gardens. It is the coolest place of all time. There were peacocks just walking around..which is actually pretty common in all of Florida, oddly enough. There are huge trees and basically it's the best service in all the mission.
I also got to spend a say with Sister Jess, who was trained by my last companion. We live together and she is a real bro. We had a super good day together and prayed with a woman who recently lost her husband. I am also excited to get to spend a day with my "daughter" Sis. Soza during this transfer. :) :)
We are currently teaching a man that we OYMed while contacting a referral and he is super cool! We are having an FHE with him tonight.
A personal commitment that I will be working on this week comes from a BYU Devotional (Seriously, those things are the greatest!) I am going to be working on improving my prayers and asking "What can I do to...?" instead of "Please bless me that..." I liked a quote from the same talk:
"Instead of murmuring, Nephi simply went to work and made another bow. Murmuring wastes time, lengthens one's journey, and hardens one's heart. God may not always stop bows from breaking, but he does always help in the construction of new ones." -Dennis L. Largey
So, stop complaining and work on what YOU can control!
Love you all tons!
