Just Keep Swimming

Our week was interesting. We were pretty busy running around doing things, had MLC, companion had a few head aches here and there. But we are alive!!! 

On Saturday we were able to attend a baptism in Tangaroa ward. Sister Graham and I have both served there so we were really excited to go back. It was the nicest thing to walk into the chapel and talk to everyone after and they were all so excited to see us. Bishop even gave us a shout out in his talk haha it was pretty great. I know I have shared something like this before, but it was the nicest thing to go back to a previous area and see all the people I have come to love so much. To see that they remembered us and cared about us as well. It was cool to see people that Sister Lott and I found or taught and how much they have progressed this past year. 

In Bishops talk he said his only piece of advice to everyone is "Just keep swimming." The usual in that ward haha but it was a good piece of advice if you do apply. With not much happening in our area at the moment it is easy to get down and upset because nothing is happening. We were talking yesterday about the episode of the district when one of the elders talks about how he is almost finished and he is working harder than he ever has and yet nothing seems to be happening. We feel like him at the moment. We set new goals and are excited to carry them out. We know that even though we may not see the fruits of our labours if we keep working diligently and faithfully then the Lord will provide. That we just need to keep swimming and keep doing what we know to be right. I am grateful for the opportunities we have had to serve this week and to really feel of the Saviours love for everyone as we do so. 

I hope you all have a great week and keep swimming!!

MLC our intake takes up most of it. It was on our 16 month mark so had to document the moment. It was officially Sister Lott's last one. Love this sister to the moon and back.

Zone service. We cleaned windows and the elders were in their natural habitat and planted taro.
