October 12, 2015

This week was awesome!!
Josh was Baptized!! Pic further down. The ward has been working with and on him for the last three years when his mom was baptized. He finally decided it was time for him to make this covenant.

We also found two new investigators Micah and Heydn (no i did not misspell his name). They are 9 and 12 and their dad was baptized a little over a year ago and have been attending church with him but have never really had an interest in being baptized.

Something I have noticed in just this last month or so is that the youth of the world are searching for God. It has been interesting as most of our investigators are youth. I guess after the strict years of religion pushing then with the generation of step off we are hitting a generation who wants the love that only Heavenly Father can provide.

My testimony is that there is some things that only God can provide and that only parents can come close to, insert a word that is stronger than copy, in the lives of the children of men. We are just like children when it comes to our problems. I have see a few kids that kick and scream when they don't get what they want so they turn to things that make them more unhappy and others that take it patiently until they either get their way or figure ways that work just as well. That is what I think Christ was saying when he told us to be like a child. We just get caught up often in the heat of the moment and through a temper tantrum and blame the only being in the universe that cares more about our happiness than his own.

When times are going rough remember one that some one has it worse than you but two there is always a Father in Heaven to turn to instead of the things of the world that bring only temporary happiness then greater anger, sadness, frustration, etc.
