Can I say time flies?? It is so crazy how fast the week flies and I'm so thankful that I have this time to send you all an email. Not a lot happened this week as it was all the same, but the exciting part is that we should be having two baptisms this next week in a baptismal font! Super exciting!
Spiritual Thought for the Week: Can be found in Preach My Gospel under the section of Patience pg 120. Something that I would encourage all of you to develop - as that is the only way we can handle others. I have been blessed with so many experiences this week as I have left everything up to the Lord's time. For example: this investigator figuring out that the Book of Mormon is true and when an investigator comes to church, to when they accept a baptismal commitment. I know this work is true. I know that when we are patient all things will work out to our benefit.

Patience is the capacity to endure delay, trouble, opposition, or suffering without becoming angry, frustrated, or anxious. It is the ability to do God’s will and accept His timing. When you are patient, you hold up under pressure and are able to face adversity calmly and hopefully. Patience is related to hope and faith—you must wait for the Lord’s promised blessings to be fulfilled.
You need patience in your everyday experiences and relationships, especially with your companion. You must be patient with all people, yourself included, as you work to overcome faults and weaknesses.
“Life is full of difficulties, some minor and others of a more serious nature. There seems to be an unending supply of challenges for one and all. Our problem is that we often expect instantaneous solutions to such challenges, forgetting that frequently the heavenly virtue of patience is required.”
–President Thomas S. Monson
“Patience—a Heavenly Virtue,” Ensign, Nov. 1995, 59
