On Monday we went to Carter McEwans mission call opening. It was cool to watch it and remember when i opened mine. He had a lot of his friends and family there and asked us to share a brief restoration with everyone and let them all know what he would be sharing with people for the next two years. It was a powerful message. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we were at training meetings every morning all over the mission and on exchanges with other missionaries. Super busy couple of days but we got tons done and it was fun. Saturday and Sunday we have been prepping for zone conferences for this week. So we will be giving trainings to all of the missionaries and be all over the mission again. Big week ahead of us!
Cool experience though. Sunday morning we went to the marine base to teach the recruits. I was talking to this one recruit about the week and we were talking alot about prayer. He told me he prays like 1000 times a day and feels that he is annoying God because he prays so much haha. Anyways these guys go through the ringer every day and this guy has been having knee problems. They were on one of their long hikes and he said right when he started his knee was killing him and he didnt think he was going to be able to do it. He kept praying through the hike. He said at one point he was going up a steep slope and felt someone distinctly push him and lift his pack. He turned around and there was nobody close to him at all. He thought about that the rest of the hike. He knew that it was help from God and that his prayer was answered. Its powerful and humbling being able to talk with these recruits that are going through so much and turn to God through it all. I know that Heavenly Father is looking out for us and does answer our prayers.
Love you all have a great week!
