Hey! I love the Briggs family, they are a very nice family and very
fun to talk to! It's getting easier to share my testimony. I'm glad that I had my struggles before I came out on my
mission because I'm able to tell people my story and I can relate to
what people are going through and I feel like I'm more of an effective
missionary because of it. It's really helped me a lot especially when
I'm teaching members and non members. My week was okay. We did service
for a member in the ward and he ended up taking us to Red Robbin
right after so that was cool, he is a nice guy! :)
glad that grandpa is doing better I did fast for him and have been
praying for him as well!
We (mom & dad) received a nice text and this awesome picture! -- "We were grateful to have Elder NeVille in our home tonight. He left a great message about how he chose to serve a mission. I'm glad my boys were able to hear his testimony. He brought a great spirit to our home. Love, Bishop Briggs and Family."
So Thursday we had Zone Conference in Loveland so after Zone Conference we
visited the member that house us and talked to him for a little bit.
After that we visited the Mansel family and their eight year old kid was
so happy to see me. I told him that I played in the NFL and he was so
super interested to know more about it and his mom told me that she had
no idea he was into football until I told him about this. (he knows I was kidding) Anyways, I talked to
him on Thursday and he told me he starts football in August and before I
told him about me playing in the NFL he didn't seem interested to play
football so I might have gotten him into it! Ha ha! Love you!
The Blazin Challenge
was hard! They changed the sauce to make it hotter as it used to be just
blazin sauce but they changed it to blazin ghost pepper! It was hot!
before I did it the workers told me that the sauce is hotter but it
taste better than it did before, Alex the member I live with told me
that he just did the regular blazin and it had no taste. This had taste
and even though it was hot I did like the taste of it. So I had 6
minutes to eat 12 wings poured in blazin ghost pepper sauce and if I
completed the challenge I would get a free t-shirt saying Blazin
Challenge Survivor and my picture would get taken and they would show it
on the wall! So I did the challenge and I completed it in 5 minutes and 30
seconds so I did it and it was not easy but I got a free shirt! I
couldn't believe I did it! I was actually making good time I was at like
3 and a half minutes when I got to just 2 wings left but my mouth was
so I had to stop a little bit to get it down my throat. I
had a pretty fun bathroom experience the next morning haha!
My week was pretty good! My companion and I didn't have a dinner on
Saturday and ended up going out to eat and one of the workers came up to us asking if we are Mormons and
she asked about the Church. So we asked if she would be interested
in learning more and she said yes! So we gave her our number and it was awesome!
It's kind of getting warmer here it's in the 40s to 50s. So that is nice haha! I kind of miss the heat but at the same time I
kind of don't! Spring break doesn't start here till the 19th! I'm jealous I want to go on another
cruise it's always so much fun! I can't believe that Ammon and Brendan are
both reffing and I can't believe they didn't get any complaints! Ha ha!Oh my
gosh I totally forgot that the Theater was opening in the spring of this
year that is awesome! It will be nice not having to drive 20 minutes
every time you want to go and I didn't know Dairy Queen was even coming
to Queen Creek that is awesome! Take care! Love you!
This pic was at a members house in Firestone, Colorado.
My week went pretty good for the most part so Monday
night I said a prayer to Heavenly Father asking to help me get through
my fast the next day and well I got sick and my stomach was killing me. I
couldn't sleep and then waking up at 2 am and not being able to go back to sleep was not fun. So my
companion and I just stayed home all day and my stomach hurt so bad
that I didn't want to eat anything it wasn't exactly the way I wanted to
feel but Heavenly Father answered my prayer and helped me get through
the fast! Heavenly Father might not answer our prayers the way we want
him to but he does answer our prayers! Right now I am reading Doctrine
and Covenants and found this scripture and it is my new favorite
scripture it's D&C 93:49. It says "What I say unto
one, I say unto all pray always lest that wicked one have power in you
and remove you out of your place." If we always pray we can beat Satan
and Heavenly Father will help us if we turn to him and together we will
beat Satan! This was the highlight of my week was when I was fasting on
Tuesday and got sick and nothing exciting really happened other than
that! Well tomorrow we are going to visit Fran who I contacted from the
senior center and we are going to see if she will want to take the
lessons we were suppose to meet her last Tuesday but I was sick! Our
investigator Kendra told us she can no longer take lessons anymore due
to her schedule so we aren't really teaching anyone at this moment just
been working on bringing less actives back to Church! Friday, Alex, the
member we live with, wants to do the Blazin Challenge with me at Buffalo Wild Wings so that will be interesting. I will have my companion take a
video of me while I'm doing that! Other than that that's what we have
going on for this week as we don't have any set appointments so we are just going to stop
by less actives houses!
Well I hope Grandpas surgery goes well I will pray
for him as well! I'm glad that
things are going better for you Mom! Love you!
