Alma 29:9

Alma 29:9
I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.

Howdy y'yall

This week went pretty good for us i think! Nothing really anything that stands out that is too particuarly exciting. Sad to hear the bummer news about grandma.  It might be tough. Real tough for grandpa. I will keep her in our prayers but hopefully nothing too bad happens. Miricles happen, that is for sure.  It will be interesting to see how it all plays down, might really be hard for me out here but i think i can manage. Grandma is pretty stubborn so maybe even this can't stop her. Kinda bummer news...
hope everything else is great there!
This week has been kinda hard. Just no one really wants to start investigating. This has been the hardest week. It has tested me alot. I just don't want to fall into the habit of not talking to people because nothing will happen if i do that. I am grateful that my companion doesn't have a problem with talking to people. That helps out a whole lot. He just talks to them sometimes too much cause we don't want to be late for appointments. You could seriously just spend your whole time talking to people.
We went service tracting this week. Had a service appointment bail on us (apparently our fault for not calling but she didn't answer her phone when we did) Crazy member anyways. So we just went knocking on doors in our Gentiles and first door that opened let us mow his lawn. Name of Bryant. Set up a time to come back and share our message because duh that is really what we were trying. He said it really helped him out cause he just didn't have time for it and his wife was gone for the last 2 weeks. We went back and taught him kinda the first lesson. He is agnostic so that isn't good. Just had a good seed planted but the spirit was definately there and i didn't want to be too pushy so that is all it went with him but i guess sometimes you just have to plant them and i would say that was a very good seed that we got there.
We had a coupld good lessons with a new b-day named Diva. Good black name right there haha. The new senior couple the Porters came with us. They are pretty cool, but won't match up to the Miller's or Murdock's. The Murdock's went home today!!!! Freak, it is weird to think. Seen them today on the Mall. We went and took sunrise pictures then ran into them and they were leaving :[. Not a good feeling but i hope to see them again someday. Definatley good times had with them and especially Elder Fawcett. Think i am gonna write him a letter today since he won't respond to e-mails.
Went and took sunrise pictures today! was pretty gorgeous will try and get one or two of them too ya. Forgot my s-d card so only could take like 3 or 4 of them haha. Made sure they were good tho!
Went to American History Museum today too and would be e-mailing from Library of Congress but my companion forgot his i-d so couldn't do that. Not too bad of a bike ride tho. just go down and back up 16th Street. When you go down will take ya right into the back of the White House. Bout 30 minute bike ride. I think if i had a road bike i could just about do the LoToJack or however you do it. I feel like i am in pretty good biking shape. Hopefully i start losing weight again. i am at 190 right now so can't complain too much. I know i was at least 225 in the MTC i think at the begining i was more haha i would like to get back tto 175 but we will see.
Hope everyone is taking time to enjoy life back at home, it seems like there is just no time to do anything out here. Always something to do and never enough time to do it. And you can't take time off to enjoy it so you gotta just enjoy the kind of work you are doing. Been pretty hard to enjoy it lately for some reason but i think i am just thinkin too much haha. This has been the biggest rollar coaster of my life. All the ups and the downs. Going from having the most spiritual lesson to walk out to half-naked women and their boyfriends droppin f-bombs at us haha. Throws ya through a loop sometimes. The world is a crazy place and i am glad that i have the opportunity to take a break from it all. Kinda nice not to have to worry about what is happening in the world cause you are worrying about better and more important things eternally speaking. I really do think i am getting the gift of eternal life out here Heleman 5:8. I know this is giving me the things that i will need for the rest of eternity. Most of all a true testimony. Been thinking alot at how much this just all has to be true. No other way it can be done. Grateful for Jesus Christ, and for his gift to us so that when we mess up, it can be fixed.
Thanks for the calender i love it!
The weather has been a little rainy but wasn't anything like the other storms. We got soaked a couple times but i guess that just makes things interesting haha.
Enjoyed Zone Training this week only to have Zone Conferance then turn around and have Zone Training again the week after. Crazyness but i guess that is what the schedule is now. Cuts it down to only having like 1 or 2 real District Meetings a Transfer which is super wierd but guess that is what happens.
Love Ya Gotta Run!!!!!!
Elder Stoor
p.s. hopefully will get some people written this week. I am the most terrible letter writer ever!
