As some of you might notice, I'm a bit behind updating Elder Cline's blog. It's just been a bit hectic around here and busy, and we are preparing for him to come home! So I will post enough to catch up so there will be lots to enjoy! Let's get started with Week 13!
Last 24 Weeks: 13 of 24
March 7th, 2016
Hello again to all! We are working hard and having a blast in Sin City! This week we had the challenge to give out cookies to our neighbors around where we live. We first had to trust our skills in baking, then we created some delicious triple chocolate cookies. The morning after, we handed them to our neighbors, all of which were very open and I have no doubt they will not be as apprehensive to us in the future.
One of our wards held a Young Women's auction at the church this week and our ward mission leader decided to auction off his hair. Our ward mission leader was a very hairy guy, and now, he is not. But it was great to watch! He had all the young men and young women cut it.
On one day, we decided to see if anyone lived in a gun range that is connected to our area. We did not know how far away the gun range was and so we ended up walking a total of about an hour and a half walking to and back, just to find out that nobody lives there. At least we got a picture or two there.
The challenge for this next week is: Buy and give an investigator a set of the full standard works. Lets go!
From this scripture this week, I learned that humility is key to having the spirit.
Alma 13:28 "But that ye would humble yourselves before the Lord, and call on his holy name, and watch and pray continually, that ye may not be tempted above that which ye can bear, and thus be led by the Holy Spirit, becoming humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all long-suffering; 29 Having faith on the Lord; having a hope that ye shall receive eternal life; having the love of God always in your hearts, that ye may be lifted up at the last day and enter into his rest."
Love yall, have a great week!Elder Cline Nevada Las Vegas West May 2014 - 2016
