Elder Redd's favorite scripture

Elder Redd's favorite missionary scripture

Alma 26:11-12
But Ammon said unto him: I do not boast in my own strength,
nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with
joy, and I will rejoice in my God.
Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak;
therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his
strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought
in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Capitulo 16

Capitulo 16  

 Hola Familia y Amigos!! Espero que todos esten disfrutando el regresa a escuela, trabajo, y la clima mas fresca!! Me gusta la cambia en clima aqui porque es mas fresca, antes hizo mucho calor aqui. 

I guess I could translate it for you Dad although I did have a lot of fun wondering what you thought. (Hello family and Friends. I hope that you're all enjoying the return to school and work, and the cooler weather! I like the change in weather here because it's more cool. Before it was very hot here.) 

It was good to hear from G and G, I hope they have a great time on their cruise. It was good to hear from you to Katey it sounds like Medicine Hat is a good place for you and I'm glad the boys are enjoying it. It's also great to hear about your writing and I wish you the best of luck with your submission! 

Elena it was great to hear from you. I think I've played human battleship before but I'm really not sure tell me a little more about it. As for the tourism here in Denver that's something that really depends on my companions and my area. It's something I'd like to do but I don't think I will for at least another transfer. 

Speaking of which it's crazy to think that I've just finished my first transfer in the field! Me and Elder Lopez will both be staying here in Denver Fourth, the only change in our District is that Elder Ence is getting transferred. (he's the really tall one with glasses in the pictures in front of the the temple.) 

I'm glad you had fun at the book signing Sister! it would be great to be there and visualize yourself on the other side of the table. That day in the far off future that I'm not going to talk about, when that happens we'll have to go to a book signing together. I'm glad you’re determined in your writing I'm excited to hear a little more about it when you've done it, but don't let it kill your enthusiasm for Bells because that book really is amazing. 

Mom and Dad great to hear from you as always it sounds like both of you are getting really excited for your mission, and I'm glad you’re working hard now. And also Dad you went rock climbing for staff meeting that sounds awesome! 

You asked about what kind of service we've done out here, It's nothing exciting really, we've helped people move cleaned up yards- that fun stuff. I love serving it's always great but I really haven't had any cool experiences with service or anything yet. My favourite service project we did was when we went out to the mountains a little bit to help the stake work in the Church owned park out there. It was nice to be outside of the city seeing as how I didn't have that chance at all this past summer. 

Ok I guess I'll tell you a little about this week here. The thing I'm most excited about is that Jesus will be baptized this sunday I'm super excited about that he is going to be an amazing member, I've been so lucky to have the opportunity to teach someone who the Lord has prepared like that. Also some pretty big news, yesterday we got to have a three hour training session with Elder Bednar. Yes the Elder Bednar it was so cool and I learned so much about teaching by the spirit. It was amazing to see how normal he was, yet the power he had when he spoke and bore testimony. 

Dad a few weeks ago you asked if I could tell you a little more about the work here I never did my bad so I'll tell you a little about some of the people we teach. Right now we do a fair amount of work with Less Actives and Recent Converts. one of my favourite families is the Mendoza family. Hermano Mendoza is a really amazing man doctrinally he's an amazing member. The only reason he can't go to church every week is because he's sick and can't always come. We do a lot of work with him and his daughters who have moved out. We're working hard and they're starting to do better. Another one of our Investigators is Estela, we've been teaching her since my first week. She knows that the restoration and the book of mormon are true but we're having trouble getting her to church because she attends another church at the same time. We gave her a church tour on saturday and it went really well, but then she didn't come to church sunday morning. I know that if we can just get her to come to church and get her the fellowship she needs that she will get baptized, we've just got to overcome that obstacle. I really love our area, we're busy all the time and we are having success. Right now we have so many people who are so close and just need a little bit more. That's our main focus right now, just trying to help all the people who are almost there. 

I love you all, I hope you're all doing well. I love being out here, I know this Church is true and I love being a missionary!
