|Allyson with her new companion Sister Tanner|
This week!!! I got my new companion! Sister Tanner! She is from Middleton, Idaho!!! She is 20 years old she is the oldest of 5 kids and has 4 brothers. We get along great and she has been out for 11 months! So, we are pretty close in mission age! haha We have had a lot of fun figuring out how to teach together and we just have a lot in common!
This week has been great! Destiny is still going through a hard time with her family. But she is keeping strong! We meet with her about 2x a week and just help her understand the gospel better than she has before. She didn't get to come to church this week because she was in Indianapolis but hopefully she will make it next week.
I felt like this week was a pretty good week but a pretty normal week also. We found this guy on campus this week. His name is Clayborn. He has had a rough life and doesn't know much about God. He wants to believe but "he knows not where to find it". We started teaching him the restoration lesson but we then decided to change and talk about the Plan of Salvation. He had so many questions about life. I wish I could help him so badly but he has to find out on his own. Clayborn is a very sincere person and just wants to find truth. We are going to teach him again and I hope the Spirit will touch him.
Collin is kind of iffy about joining the church and likes his religion. So we are working with him and making sure that he reads the BOM because that is where he is going to find his answer if he needs to be baptized.
Markanda, she is doing well. She prayed about a baptism date and we all decided on November 7th. She still wants to look around at other churches. So we are also helping her recognize her answers. Man I wish I could just pour out the Spirit on everyone I meet.
That is the struggle with campus. Most people meet with us a couple of times then decide it is not for them. So I am just trying to figure out how to help them understand the priesthood!
Well my spiritual thought today is one that comes from John 15:13. This verse simply explains what Jesus Christ has done for us! "greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends"! He has so much love for us that he would suffer on our behalf everything that everyone has and will ever go through. Not because he had to, but because he LOVES us.
I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week.
Love Sister Hanson
