We are official balloon chasers now! Pretty cool! We got to help twice this last weekend and we are going to help this next weekend on Friday, Saturday, and Monday!
Sister Williams and I focused a lot on service this week. We got to do a lot of fun things like help with the hot air balloon chasing and cheering on participants in a triathlon. We helped take care of the mail in the office and we pinked up trash on the side of the road and we helped someone move. Then it was really cool because the topic for church yesterday was service!
One of our investigators came to church with his daughter. They might come again in the future, but it was their second time and kind of thought it was boring, again. It was a slower week, but that's okay.
I learned how to can things last Monday. That was fun! It is a lot of hard work though, but it can definitely save money.
I studied the talk: "Latter-Day Saints Keep On Trying" by Elder Renlund. He says, "God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were. He cares that we keep on trying." I know this to be true. God wants us to be the best that we can be. He wants to help us and that is why He provided a savior for us. When we make mistakes, we are able to fix them through the Atonement! God created the perfect plan for all of us to return to Him. His plan takes effort from us, we have to keep trying. "If we don't try, we're just Latter-Day Sinners, if we don't persevere, we're Latter-Day Quitters; and if we don't allow others to try, we're just Latter-Day Hypocrites."
Have a great week! :)

|It is rumored that this is the type of tree that they used to make the|
crown that went on Christ's head. It has really long and sharp thorns
and they are already red, the color of blood.
