March 13, 2017

Hey everyone! Another week here in Marietta and things are going great! Although unfortunately, this week our investigators faced some great opposition... People at work and family members are very against them learning about and going to church which is really sad! Luckily these investigators are top notch and they're trying to not let Satan's tricks stop them from doing what's right! Opposition in missionary work and life seems to be all too prevalent and it can definitely be very disappointing at times, but the scriptures teach that even the best have to overcome opposition! Joseph Smith just moments before receiving the First Vision underwent intense opposition from the adversary himself and even following the First Vision he faced severe persecution! Job's experience I am sure was very difficult and he may not have understood all the reasons he was facing such trials but received twice the blessings after he endured well. Opposition is all around us, but opposition always precedes and proceeds a miracle so keep the faith because miracles are just around the corner!!

So last week on Monday we went bowling as a district and that was super fun! I have a picture from that, its pretty terrible quality but its a picture! ha! :) its always the best when we get to do fun things on P-day! We aren't allowed to get together with other missionaries very often in this mission so when we do we try and make it a good time! :)

I am excited for next week, We hopefully will see a lot of really neat things happen. If everything goes according to plan, we will be seeing a BUNCH of baptisms the following week!! I am stoked! Please pray for our investigators that they will be able to overcome opposition and be ready for baptism! :) 

Church is most certainly true, God is our loving Heavenly Father, and the gospel brings true, lasting happiness! Love you all and have another wonderful week!!
