Over the hump!

Short Update:

Things are going well here, yesterday was my half-way mark. Pretty wild!

This week has been great! We're all finding like crazy in the district right now. 

It's as warm here as ever. Elder Simmons and I are wishing the cool weather would have stayed! Biking is hard in the heat! 

Joseph finally came to church this last week. He's considering baptism. He came for the primary program and loved the kids’ singing!

Jasmine we're just waiting to have a solid date for her new apartment to get her a baptismal date. She's as sweet as ever!

This week I've been thinking about the Savior's instruction in the sermon on the mount:

Matt 5

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

The savior teaches us that to indulge in fantasies, even without action, is sin in our heart.

How many other sins do we commit in our hearts? If we play violent video games or watch violent movies, have we committed murder in our hearts?

Have a great week everyone!

Elder Simmons and Elder Troy at dinner out.  They were treated by a family in the ward they are serving in.
This is the box we sent to him full of all the things from home he likes and some items he may need too to celebrate his one-year, halfway done mark!

I had a baker make these and send them to him to celebrate his “Hump Day.”  Aren’t they so cute?!
