Week 71- Happy Families

Friends and Family,
This week was pretty good. It started out tough. It seemed like there were some distraction which made it hard to get the work done. But by Saturday, we just humbled ourselves, prayed for help, and we had a great day. We were lead to a new investigator, who already has a personal relationship with Christ. It was awesome! He is very open to us coming back. We will go back tomorrow. It will be great. His name is Terry.
We had a good day yesterday as well. We had lunch with one family, and they had their extended family there as well. It was really fun and nice to spend time with them and feel the love and joy of being together as a family. I'm glad we had some good families in the ward.
We also visited Emmit yesterday and had a Spiritual lesson with him again. He wants to live in the Celestial Kingdom with God again, and we shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ lesson, which tells us how we can do that. It was awesome! He wants to be baptized and feel the Holy Ghost constantly in his life. Go has lead us back to him continually. He is such a nice guy.
It was a good week. When we sacrifice and are obedient, God brings blessings.
Love y'all! Happy Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for the people I'm able to serve out here, my supportive family, friends, and for the things I've learned out here. It's been hard, but my burdens are made easy when I turn to Christ. So most of all, Christ and His redeeming love.
-Elder Chandler Allen

The youth were awesome and surprised us with a bunch of uplifting letters. They're awesome. Just about made our day yesterday.
