How is the truck doing? It is doing great. We keep on getting flat tires as we are driving through construction. They use granite on the roundabout they are building, and when there is a nice pointed piece it goes right through the tire. I would never personally buy a Nissan Frontier. It drives too much like a car.
So how are the sisters doing in the ward? The sisters are doing great. The Ward loves them, which is no good for us because the ward members give them all the referrals in our area. Instead of then giving the referrals to us, they go and contact them, which is a little frustrating.
I read Doctrine and Covenants Section three this past week. Verses one through 11 really stood out to me. During the translation of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith had finished translating 116 pages. His scribe, Martin Harris wanted to show the manuscript to his wife. Joseph prayed and asked God if he could lend the pages to him. He was told not to. He kept on asking and the third time he prayed God said that he could lend the pages to Martin Harris. Martin ended up losing these pages and Section 3 is God basically telling Joseph "I told you not to do that and you did it any way." As I was reading this story I read it as if it were talking to me. I came to the realization that God's work will always be accomplished. The best way for it to happen is his way.
I felt like these verses in Doctrine and Covenants were telling me, "Even though you have many gifts and can do many things, if you boast of your own strength you will not have the power to teach. You have been entrusted to move the work forward in the Lamoille Valley area. Theres a lot of rules in the missionary handbook, but remember the promises that were made to you if you keep them. So many times you have disobeyed those rules that were set forth. If you just would have been faithful, and followed those rules God would have extended his arm to help you in times of trouble. Elder Jensen you were chosen to be a servant of God, those rules were set forth for your benefit, if you dont shape up you will fall, and you will be unable to teach. God is merciful, repent of the things you have done. You are still chosen and you are called again to the work." I was really glad that I had read that section.
They have several versions of the movie. It is the same movie but from different peoples point of view. The one we watched was from his mother's point of view. The one they have online is a little bit different. After that we saw a floating bridge. It is basically like a big dock that is tied to both ends of this lake. You used to be able to drive over it but since then they closed it. It is the only one in the state of Vermont.
