Wherefore I could not be shaken.

How much salt do crabs put on their food?
Just a pinch. 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you all had a great week! 

 We had a pretty good week! We set a date with our investigator Alain! He is the one from France, who doesn't have a religious background. We saw him pretty much ever day this week, we had to start from the very basics with him. We have really focused on prayers, and telling him to pray morning and night! It has been amazing to watch him come to know he has a Father in Heaven, and a Savior who died for him. We asked if he had been praying, and he told us that God talked back! Oh, it was music to our ears! We asked him if he would say the closing prayer, he didn't even reply he just started praying. He started out in English and finished in French, so we didn't know what he said. But thank goodness for Sister Arick and her translation skills. She told us he said; " Dear Heavenly Father, I hope you are their. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen." Isnt it amazing that God answers everyone prayers even if they are as simple and basic as that? Every time we see  him, his countenance changes. I am eternally grateful that I get to be apart of this!

 Wherefore I could not be shaken. This scripture really stood out to me. This always makes me question where is my testimony at? Am I built upon a sandy or a rocky foundation? I challenge you to ask yourself. See where you are at! Because this life is stinking hard! But, why make it even harder than it needs to be, that is the whole reason we have the Gospel Of Jesus Christ. It makes life easier! It makes life simple. Keep it simple stupid( that always goes through my head). This Gospel isn't rocket science. It is so simple a child can understand it! Everyday I see people who don't have a strong foundation, they let the winds of the world shake their faith. 
 Jacob 7:5 And he had hope to shake me from the faith, notwithstanding the many revelations and the many things which I had seen concerning these things; for I truly had seen angels, and they had ministered unto me. And also, I had heard the voice of the Lord speaking unto me in very word, from time to time; wherefore, I could not be shaken.

1. Thanksgiving day!!

When life throws you a lemon, make lemonade!

What kind of monkey floats? 
A hot-air baboon! 

Hello family and friends! First of all I would like to apologize for my awful grammar and punctuation. You don't really have a lot of time to make sure everything is perfect, and I clearly didn't get the good English traits from my dad. and just so you all know I know how to spell hole, I realized I used the wrong one after I had already pushed the send button. Whoops.
This week has been crazy and full of miracles!!! I don't really know where to begin. We have met a ton of people this week, and we have a lot of return appointments.One of them is from France and he has a really cool French accent, he doesn't really have a religious background so we are going really simple with him. The Lord is truly blessing us! I am excited for this next week. 

There have been countless times where I have been given words in the very minute I have needed them. This scripture is so true; Matthew 10:19. I have been asked some crazy questions that I have never even thought about, and before I knew it I was answering them! That has happen a couple of times, and it is crazy to watch the Lord work through me. When I first got out I was nervous, because I didn't really know anything. I knew it was true, and that was enough. The Lord qualifies who he calls. Plus, this is His work there is no way he is going to leave us alone to do His work! He has been here every step of the way. I truly have come to know who my Savior is and what he has done for me and for you! 
I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving! 

PS. If you want to make a missionaries Holidays, send them a letter. 

I found a Dr. Seuss flower!!!

Get out of the hole instead of making it deeper.

What did one volcano say to the other volcano? 
I lava you! 
Awe wasn't that sweet? 

Get out of the hole instead of making it deeper. The caption of the week has been brought to you by Sister Morgan. I love this! Life is hard, but sometimes we make it a lot harder than it needs to be. We just need to stop throwing ourselves a pity party, grow up and do something about it. My brother Josh is the perfect example of getting out of the hole instead of making it deeper, so shout out to him! I love you Josh! 

What a week. This week has just flown by! Sister Morgan and I are teaching a lot of people on the streets and at doors, but no one seems to be sticking. Which kind of stinks, but I just have to remind myself that we are just in the planting part of missionary work. Nothing is going to grow if you don't plant, I tell myself that often:) 
We received a referral a couple weeks ago from someone we had just met on the street. They gave us their friends name and apartment number. They weren't 100% sure if it was the right number, but they said we could try. Sunday evening we went to contact them. First of all the complex is really confusing, and there are a lot of buildings. We finally found it and no one answered. We knocked the door across from it, and no one answered there either. We were getting ready to leave and someone was getting out of their car, so we decided to wait to see if it was him. To our surprise it was someone from our ward, and even more to our surprise it was her apartment that the referral supposedly lived. We told her what happen, and asked if we could share a short 15 minute message with her. She said we could, and it was very clear that she has been going through a lot and needed a message. It definitely wasn't a coincidence! It amazes me the miracles that happen everyday. Gods hand was most definitely in this. I mean what are the odds?! 

On your mission you get to see these miracles every single day. Which just reminds me time and time again, that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us so much! He knows exactly
what we need and when we need it.

Whats dead and buzzes? 
a zom-bee

 Here is a little explanation for my captions every week, a lot of the time they are from something someone said, or a random thought that comes to mind. sometimes I forget to explain them, so in the future when I  forget, just know it was probably something funny an old person said to me. :) 

 Nothing really happen this week. Poor Sister Morgan was sick, so we had to stay in for a couple of days. Not much to report. But I thought I would send a joke and some pictures. Everyone skips to that part anyways. 

Have a splendid week. 

Oh, Florida.

My chicken is shaped like Florida. :)
