Klammath Falls - Week 18

Hola Mama,

So this week was good.  My studies in the morning have been getting a lot better and I'm learning a ton.

Last P-Day we had the normal schedule.  Played B-ball early in the morning them just hung out all day.  P-Days are amazing days and well needed after a long week of work.  I got a sweet Bollo tie.  Not sure how to spell it but it's one of those cowboy kind of ties with the two strings.  Mine has black strings and silver and gold eagle thing.  Super awesome!  We went to a cool Oregon place that had lots of western and Indian stuff.  Pretty awesome.

So we had some great success.  It's always nice.  M. is still progressing.  The only thing that has been holding him back forever is his Mom.  But M.'s testimony has been strengthening a lot so hopefully soon he will see the water.

So "The Kids Family" is finally going to seminary.  We have been challenging them to go and told them how awesome it is so they challenged us to go as well.  So we went twice this week at 6. Getting up at 5:30.  Not fun.  I'm done with those seminary mornings haha.  But seminary was a blast with all them.

So this week I have been studying Christlike Attributes out of the Preach My Gospel.  It's a really awesome section.  So far I have studied Faith, Hope, Charity and Love, Virtue, Knowledge, Patience,
And Humility.  They are great topics to study.  Preach my Gospel is on the Gospel Library App and is an awesome way to learn the Gospel.

Friday night eating dinner at Sister Bennett's restaurant an Elvis Impersonator and his wife came to put on a show.  It was actually really good.  He did and bunch of Elvis songs, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, 50's Rock, and funny impersonations of people.  His wife was also a really good singer.  Really cool show to have while eating haha.

Another really awesome thing is that H. actually came to church this Sunday.  I let him borrow a white shirt and tie and he just fit right in.  He was talking to all the members and making comments in class. Super cool experience.  He just loved it.  It's crazy to see how someone with that past can change so much.  Super cool.

A couple Christlike Attributes that really stood out to me are Knowledge and Patience.

Knowledge is really cool.  It is the only thing you can take out of this life.  That's why it is so important to learn all we can while we are here.  We were sent here to learn and grow.  In D&C 130:19 it

19 And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come.

Patience is something that is very hard to have but it is worth it.

It says in Mosiah 23:21...

21 Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith.

We are tried so that The Lord can see how strong we truly are.  This life is a test.

In Alma 34:41 it says...

41 But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions.

What a great promise to have that though this life may be hard and we will go through many trials that one day we will be able to rest from it all.

Well I hope you have an awesome week!

I love you guys!
