Lovest Thou Me? February 13, 2017

This week is great, sister Dimond is great. She is on 🔥fire🔥if I hadn't been told that this was her last six weeks of the mission I never would have been able to guess. She had a cool idea that we should make a goal to pass out two Book of Mormons a day and when she said that I was like uhhhh but then we have been able to do it every day so far so that's really cool! She is a great missionary. One of the people we were able to give one to was named Joe and he had literally gotten out of jail that very morning which was insane. But really cool. We were definitely put into his path, he has the chance to turn his life around and he said he thinks this book might help him do that! Which was cool. We are going to see him next week.
I will keep this email short so I can hopefully have time to email everyone I have missed these past couple weeks because I've been slacking!! But I have just felt the spirit work through me so much this week. It's been kind of freaky, but really cool at the same time. I know this is Heavenly Fathers work! And that he uses us when he knows we are ready and act on the things we are told to do. I feel like this has been the theme of my entire mission, way back to being trained with sister smith, but the theme is JUST DO IT. I know.. someone should come up with a company that says that or something... but sometimes there are things that are hard or weird or confusing. But we just need to do them. In Jesus the Christ it talks a little about the Good Samaritan and how those who passed by had plenty of excuses and reasons not to help the man who had been robbed. And excuses are easy to find. But the Good Samaritan had no excuse because he didn't look for one. He didn't want one. Same with me. And you. And everyone. There are plenty of reasons not to choose the right if we look for them. But we don't have to look for them. Choose the right because you want to. And if you don't want to, change yourself so that you want to. And that type of change comes through becoming like Jesus Christ and having the desire to follow him and keep his commandments because we love him. When we want to follow Jesus we won't look for reasons not to.
Ok bye
