Small Flakes of GOLD! - Monday, April 7, 2014

Hey family,

The work is going great! This week we were able to get 3 more baptismal dates for the Countryside ward. Two with the Fairchild Family, who was a referral from one of our APs. YESS! LOVE FAMILIES! They make the best investigators. Also, one with another member of the Blancos, Nadine, who is 12 years old, the daughter of Jessica, who we baptized a couple months ago. 

So this last week the sisters are waiting for their car to be fixed. They got permission for all of us to transport each other in the same car as long as they drive and all three of us sit in the back. Haha! It's awk. Dang sisters. They be everywhere now days.

What an awesome opportunity for us to listen to Genearal Conference. I LOVED IT! I hope we were all able to get small and simple things from it that we needed to hear. Sometimes we are like the young merchant who got caught up in the California Gold Rush. He went and looked for huge chunks of gold in the California rivers, and couldn't find any leaving him poor. Meanwhile another merchant was able to secure small flakes of gold found on river rocks, that were able to accumulate into a huge pile of gold, bringing him much wealth. We need to realize that by small and simple things, great things are brought to pass. As we do the little things in life, or pile up the small flakes of gold, over time we are able to do great things in the gospel, instead of looking to worldly happiness or instant satisfaction, because there is none to be found. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple. Read your scriptures. Pray. Be a member missionary. When you fall, get back up and dust yourself off. By doing these things we will be able to accumulate a large amount of eternal happiness and worth in the sight of Heavenly Father. That story was told by Elder Ballard by the way. I love you all and hope you have a great week!
