We are the clay
The Soldiers are super great! We are all here away from our families and so we are our own little family! Besiana would't be where she is now if it wasn't for them! In answer to Ashlee's question they both served missions one in Argentina and the other in Virginia. And this still was one of their favorite missionary moments. And every week we go to visit the base and see them and how their support throughout the week helps her so much!
This week we got involved in one of the churches humanitarian projects. It's called LDS charities. So they send wheel chairs here and give them to people in need. But they don't just hand them out they fit them first, so it is more work for them but it does the recipient more good it it fits. So sadly we didn't get to fit wheelchairs, there was a lady here that did a training for two days to teach people here how to do it, so now they can do it when she leave. She is actually a Physical therapist and she travels to different counties and does this two of those being Kosovo and Albania. So maybe if i learn a thing or two i could do that. But for our job we were to meet and greet people and help them fill out forms and make them smile! So that last one was my favorite part.
So I can't remember if I told you but we got a new senior couple her in Pristina. They are the Larsons and they of from Lewiston (Idaho) They are super great! They bring a lot to our district with their spirit and their knowledge. I have so much i can learn from them. So this week we have done a couple lessons with them meeting the members of the branch.
This week the elders introduced us to a girl in there English course her name is Shpresa (but you can call her Hope) So we met her for the first time on Wednesday then she came to a volleyball activity and church this week. She is super sweet. The elders asked why she wanted to meet with us and she said to find myself, to have a better connection to God and to become a better person. And by the end of the lesson she said she would read the Book of Mormon before we could even really ask her.
And this week we had a lesson with Sara and read Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. This all started with a soldier saying something in his testimony about we are clay in His hands. And Sara is being molded kinda like I have been but I am also being molded right now. And this morning I read in Moroni 10:32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him. In him we can be perfect without Him we cannot So I hope everyday I choose to be perfected by choosing Him!
