Week 92 - IT IS COLD. BUT THE GOSPEL IS STILL TRUE

It's been a great week down here... and yes I realize I say that entirely too much :) but it's true

The miracles continue to roll in as I get closer and closer to the end of my mission. I simply cannot express the true joy that fills me as I see the Gospel change peoples' lives. I love it.

Chiefly among those changes is the testimony I have seen change within myself. Above all, I know that god lives, and that he loves us. And that alone gives me strength to continually push forward.

Especially when I have to go through WEATHER LIKE THIS:

Mind you, this video hardly does a justice on this storm. I honestly though for a while that it may or may not have been the second coming. Our power was off and on. The thunder and lightning was killer. I feared for my life like the disciples on the boat, "oh me of little faith". So alas. Call me a doubting thomas, but I was scared!! yet here I am, a few days later, alive and well, still out knocking door to door, just searching for those who are waiting for the gospel :)

Could you imagine a life any better than that?
I surely can't.


Anyways though. Check out this picture of this good looking zone:

Doesn't get much better than that. I love these guys. Long live the Katy Zone.

The church is true. I love my mission.
Pray for miracles. You will find them :)

Have an incredible week

Week 89 - Of this I testify

Well. I hate to do this to you mom, I know you hate when I only do a one paragrapher, but alas it just has to be :) I hope you'll forgive.

Just know that I am happy, that I love life. The Gospel is true. Miracles happen. People change. Blessings DO come, though almost always in time. Hearts heal, though it's the pain that makes that appreciated. Earnest prayer brings answers. Forgiveness is key. The atonement is real. Happiness is a choice, and one we have to remake every day. Families are forever. Sacrifice brings reward, though only when in harmony with true principles of the gospel. Sorrow is necessary, but is only godly when it leads to repentance. Jesus is the Christ. the Savior. The Redeemer of the world. "There is no other name by which we can be saved in the kingdom of God." The lost are found, but only when the found do their job. We have divine potential; and we begin to reach it, the more we realize it.

I love the gospel :)
It has made me the happiest.

Of this I testify.

-Elder Leavitt

I Love you all!
