5/26/14 Letter

Family and Friends!!! 

Summer time is here and will I'm really tempted to jump in the sea right now…  haha! This week had has its ups and down  and i  thought that Monday would never come but like all things they come.  well not going to lie this week was the slowest week of my life as lesson fell through  cause everyone is at the beach  tanning and partying balking style. so this week was CAN WE SAY FAIL!  so with that we had for like the first time in rijeka for us no investigators at church, but a less active came, and like only 2 people show up at aktivnost. So many weird things happened this week but lets hope things get better. so on Saturday we helped up at the college to prepare things to send over things for the victim in the flood and that was way great. we gave the college students our card and they said they wanted to come.  

So last night we had one lesson and then our other lesson couldn't meet so we went tracking and then we were walking a car drove by us and we looked at our arms and well they had spit on them, so someone spit on us ha. we were going to have ex comp study (if your training you have to do it) but when we walked inside the house at 830 and we both felt really bad about it so we said ok lets go tract one more building. well i being a little dramatic  in a funny way was like "shoot I'm asking people if they believe in god and now I'm questioning that too! then i knocked on this door with lots of flowers and an old woman came out and i said" where did u get these flowers i have been looking for them for a long time" just to start a conversation and the lady gave them to me!!!! shoot people GOD DOES EXIST AND HEARS OUR PRAYERS! IT JUST BRIGHTEN MY DAY!  

Well, always we had ten min to 9 and i said shoot lets just start from the top and do the whole building just to get it done. turns out at the top this door was open and these two 6 twins pop out and become our new best friends ha.  then we talk to these parents and well they didn't let us in  (people here more  have 30 convo outside there door here, or better just they dont even open the door but talk through the door so you can have a convo without even knowing who your talking to)  but we had a really good conversation and we just gave them a plan of salvation  pamphlet so we will stop by and see them again and hope for the best!  it was just nice to talk to someone and they were so nice =)  you always get a good thing at 9 oo always its so crazy! 

But i gained so great insight on some scriptures i read with week and i even had a dream that i was explain it in church.
I'm reading in Matthew and these verses really hit me:

 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, 
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

These verses hit me because we always hear of just really peter walking on water and fell because he got detracted but no one really talks about these verses. if it be thou   Be of good cheer;it is I; be not afraid.  these phrase hit me because if  you truly know someone you know what there voice sounds like  and here peter questions if it be thou

Christ has not been with them for a few hours  and now when he come its like they don't know him they question if he is the Christ.  I thought to myself this is why we it is so important to read to scriptures every day and treasure up the words of Christ, cause if he call to us will we recognize his voice? or will we ?  it. then i thought of  peter how he was not sure if it was the savior and still he jumped out of the boat with questioning faith. if we have a little faith we can get somewhere so don't give us but the waves are going to be bigger  to help build your faith and make it stronger!  so study the scriptures get to know Christ our brother and trust in him and he will lead you home.
