FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS ...
In Texas, Friday Night Football is a religion. 🏈
We decided we needed to "be where the people are," as our Mission President has said. He wants us to be seen by the people in the community and what better way than going to the Football Game! AND our Branch President is the Head Coach and was introducing us to a lot of his friends! It felt funny being in nice clothes at a football game, but it definitely was a great experience and a lot of new people to meet and visit with!
So that was Friday night ... and this Friday we should be going to another game for another team in our area as well! Hence, we cover over 12 small towns ... Yay for Friday Night Football!
We also had the opportunity to meet one the Seventy this week, Elder Larry Echo Hawk! What an honor to shake the hand of a Seventy! We were able to have a mini Zone Conference or Mission Tour with him on Thursday! I learned soooo much and it was truly inspiring! He and his wife are both converts and LOVE missionaries! It was super cool to hear their stories and really reflect on how big of an impact we truly have on others! :)
We were also able to see Women's Conference this weekend as well! Soooo many great things but I do want to quote President Uchtdorf on a couple things he said about faith ...
"The purpose of faith is not to change God’s will but to empower us to act on God’s will. Faith is trust—trust that God sees what we cannot and that He knows what we do not. Sometimes, trusting our own vision and judgment is not enough. …
Faith means that we trust not only in God’s wisdom but that we trust also in His love. It means trusting that God loves us perfectly, that everything He does—every blessing He gives and every blessing He, for a time, withholds—is for our eternal happiness.
With this kind of faith, though we may not understand why certain things happen or why certain prayers go unanswered, we can know that in the end everything will make sense ..."
Faith = Trust
I had never really thought about faith this way but it all makes sense!
I am soooo grateful for the gospel and for the opportunity we have this weekend to hear from our Prophet and his Apostles.
Hope y'all all have a safe and fun week! :)
