Hey everybody! I can't remember when I did an update last so I should probably do one!
I'm serving in Swindon now, with elder Davis. He's from Texas, and kinda sounds like forest gump. It's a great time (: Swindon is totally awesome. There is so much to love here! But this week our progressing investigators were shipped out of the country due to unfortunate circumstances... So it has been a strange week. But nevertheless, it continues to improve. Today we went as a district to Gloucester cathedral. Aka the halls of Hogwarts. It was great.
Also, we went tracking in a little village in our area, it was really posh and interesting to see the people there. Rich people in this country are either really kind or frankly rigid. We went to stake conference is week, and on the Saturday session we got there 3 hours early by a happy mistake. So I had the opportunity to go contacting with two of my favourite missionaries. It was eye opening to see the power of a positive attitude. Our joy of being together fuelled our efforts to complete our tasks. I think we ended out giving out about 20 Books of Mormon in the course of 2 hours.
Looking back it seems to me like this is applicable to everything in life. Our attitude is the driving force for our success and happiness. Especially since our attitude in most cases won't change our scenario. (And in the few times it can, it's always made better from the positive attitude, rather than the negative one). I'm seeming to be taught over and over that finding the capacity to enjoy the moment and press on at all times, is one of the great
callings of this life. That is made so much easier as we take hold to the simple truths of the gospel. Not perhaps at first, (as surely the iron rod is made cold from the lack of warmth present in the mist of darkness)... but as we
hold on and press on, The confirmation of our own standing(in relation) to the saviour can truly carry us to press on through any degree of trouble.
Anyways, no time. Gotta go! Hope you're all doing treat love ya
