April 13th, 2015

These past few weeks have been great. I am loving the work and I'm working hard!  Some funny things have happened and some tragic things have happened.  Mad, stress, love, compassion, exciting jump for joy moments and some let downs. Some situations that pushed me far beyond what I thought I could handle, friends made, investigators dropped, people hollering at us, but all measurable growth. 

The best part of being a missionary is that we get to see people grow and learn and actually see their testimony form.  Kind of like hearing the corn grow on those hot summer nights.  We have an awesome clutch of people who we teach, they are all different yet so similar. 

Here's a weird thought.
This week at a baptism we asked someone to speak and they spoke on the Gift of the Holy Ghost. It was an okay talk, but as they spoke a few cell phones went off.  First a small ding then another buzzed and then the last one did a real quite like almost silent beep. I correlated that to how sometimes in our busy lives our phone goes off and we don't hear it or feel it because we are to busy rushing and being loud. We'd miss an important message, just like how sometimes we aren't listening to the small beeps of the spirit so we miss them. 
We ought to either put our spiritual phones on a bit louder or calm down a bit so we can hear it a bit better. 

Well that is my week. 
Love you people! 
Thanks for being my devoted followers!

Elder Joshua Braman
