(: This week was fun! The move TOOK FOREVER, but we got a new investigator that day! So it wasn't soo bad. 
I'm really excited to begin teaching more! Sis Evans has her training finished now, so we have more time to be outside and apply the things we've been doing extra studies for! 
I really do love it here in Lynn Haven(: I feel like I'm back at home. The Walmart has the same layout, there's Five Guys and Wendy's.. ha (: it's a little piece of home here in the South.

Food for thought:
Our mission president has been having us focus a lot on family history. He has been posing this question:
"Did you know that when you were baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you were baptized for more than just yourself?"

Because we have TEMPLES of the Lord we are able to help turn the hearts of the children to the fathers! We are able to HELP SAVE THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY PASSED ON. 

Someone I love has often asked me the question, "Why do the work for the dead when you're among the living?" I would say it is because the worth of ALL souls is great in the sight of God. Whether we are living OR dead, we are STILL HIS CHILDREN. When we are in the service of our fellow beings, whether seen or unseen, we are in the service of our God. He expects us to take care of ALL of His children. Not just the ones our human eyes are limited to see. 

I know that I am serving a mission which lapses onto BOTH sides of the veil. And so is everyone else on this earth. It's time for us to gather EVERY corner of the earth.
How? Through love and DILIGENT service. Don't give up on those you Visit/Home teach. It might take YEARS for them to choose to change, but EVERY MONTH you can help them become closer. It doesn't have to be an elaborate visit. Just a simple knock on the door to let them know YOU care. They can choose to not answer, but YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE THERE. As you are constant in their lives, the Lord will be able to work WITH you when it is His time. Don't miss out!
