December 15, 2014

It was another great week in Grand Rapids. The past few weeks have kind of been strange. Last week I felt like I was running around not knowing what was going on going from appointment to appointment and this week was the exact opposite. Everyone is getting super busy with the holidays and have not been able to meet that much. We only had 2 lessons this week with people that are investigating the church but were able to meet with 6 less active members including a few older members that are unable to come to church because of health reasons. It is always a joy to be able to bring joy into the lives of some of the people that we meet with. We spent a lot of time door knocking this week and sharing the "He Is The Gift" message/video. We have seen a whole lot of positive feedback from that and I am excited to see all of the good that comes from it!! Most of the people that we talk to are super nice and open to talk to us. We had one guy this week that immediately let us in and had us talk to him in his living room for a few minutes while he lectured us on how we were promoting the devil's message and that he prays for us before literally pushing us out of his house and only one person cussed us out this week so that was good. Honestly, not a lot of super exciting things happened this week. Me and Elder Brown met a lot of people this week that we will start to meet with probably this week and the work will continue to pick up. We are really focusing on Christmas and on the Savior's birth and we have been able to have several great conversations about Christ!
Sorry this is super short and I didnt really talk about much. Like I said it was just a super weird week.. But this week is going to be amazing! I have a great feeling about this week and I am excited to see all that he Lord has in store for us as Christmas is around the corner. People start to turn to Christ more around the holidays and I think that will open more doors for us this week! I hope that you have a great week and remember, He Is The Gift.
Thanks for all the love and support!!
