May 25, 2015 Forest Park

Forest Park

It's been a great week! Last week for P day we went to Forest Park. Yep.... It's a forest! I must say New York has some good parks. It was super fun - it felt so good to be back in the great outdoors! Max is a member that just returned from a mission and really wants to go out with us. That's super awesome in a trio, because one person can take him and the other two are still a companionship by themselves, so we can split up and cover twice the ground! Max actually attended our district meeting Tuesday – he doesn't have a job and is waiting for school.

Tuesday we decided to stop by a less active. She was there, and asked us if the state president had sent us. She said she had been trying to talk to him about getting help for her son, Brandon. He's sixteen years old and he isn't making the best choices right now. So we told her that we would love to take him out teaching with us. She got so excited about that, and Brandon accepted. So we split up and he was out teaching and finding for six hours, and said he would do it again tomorrow! He's come out with us every day since then. Wow! We pick him up as soon as he gets home from school and take him until 9:00 at night. His mother is so grateful - he has been talking about how excited he is to go out with the missionaries and is wanting to get a strong testimony and is talking about where he wants to serve a mission! It's been a huge miracle. Not only a blessing to them, but between Brandon and Max, we have literally been on splits the entire week covering twice the ground. Losing elder Buckner was a little worrying because there is so much work in Jamaica, but trio life has totally worked out.

Well I guess I never ended up having time for part two of this letter,  So I will
just leave you all with my testimony that I know the Book of Mormon to
be true. I love this church and I love my Savior. I want to feed his
sheep. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
