Taylor - May 25, 2015

Hey Family,

It's super crazy that the girls are already leaving, I know they will enjoy it. I'm excited to see how they handle it and especially how they will grow.

For this week, a lot was focused on faith and trusting in the Lord! It's a little hard when people are hard hearted or you're exhausted etc. But as we have faith and trust in the Lord to help us, he will help us overcome ANY obstacles in our way. It's crazy though because the natural man seems to be fighting that all the time, sometimes we don't even realize it! Things that we don't really want to do must be done for example maybe talking to some guy who looks mean, is smoking, and is holding a gun in his hand. Haha don't worry just an example. But we do it so that we can help move the work forward and put our trust in the Lord. Plus we are showing our love for him!

We try to look at it as if the Lord was serving a mission in Naples. Obviously it would be unbelievably successful! So as we have faith that the Lord is with us, almost to the point of he's standing right there with us, then we will have success. It's true that it's like finding the needle in a haystack, but if we have faith, we can't give up on the people we meet that may not seem cool. Obviously a lot of people are going to reject us but we have to have faith that someone will not.

We went to the Huber's for a meal appointment this week. Their house is super nice and it's literally right on the beach, you can walk onto the sand and right into the ocean! This is a beautiful place! I didn't have my camera but I will try to get Elder Nelson to send me some. 

So Project far as mission rules, every mission is different. Basically there are certain guidelines we have to do. We have to knock for at least an hour a day, we need to wake up on time and exercise for 30 minutes, we need to call members nightly to come out with us, and there are some others but that is basically what it is.

Anyways, hang in there Mom and Dad have a great week and don't get too lonely ;).   Don't worry, remember turn to the Lord for ANYTHING! Love ya Mom and Dad!
