Hope everyone is having a bomb Memorial Day, GO USA !
This week was just awesome! Elder Valentine and I started out our week stopping by every one of our new investigators and just setting up a time we would come back and do service for them. Well it went great, Jerry invited us back for a BBQ and to help him set up a pool he just bought for his kids and it was awesome! He asked us a bunch of questions about the temple while we were helping him set up the pool, and now we have a temple tour set up for him and his family in 2 weeks.
We also got together as a district this last Saturday and went around to members and just random people outside doing yard work and offered to mow their lawns or just do anything that they needed. Well it worked a lot better than we thought because we spent the whole day in service clothes haha.
We raked some lady's leaves, we helped 2 people move, we painted someone's barn and stacked a lot of wood. It is so rewarding to go around and offer small acts of service and see the joy it brings people to do something as small as bringing the garbage can in or doing there dishes.
Our savior is our perfect example and all he ever did was serve others. I know that not all people are receptive to the gospel until they have been shown love, and that through your service, you care about them outside of a church setting. I know this church is true and I know that "when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." - Mosiah 2:17
I hope you all have a great week!
Love Elder Taysom
