Selwin is Transferred to Bossier, LA

My new district in Bossier, Louisiana
It has been a hectic week but last week was super awesome as we watched the Lord open doors we couldn't. Oh, and I got transferred! More on that next week.

While we were packing up our Christmas decorations we received a phone call from a member who had a referral for us. It was his cousin. We gave him a call and he set up an appointment for the very next day!  We got the opportunity to teach both him and his wife. It was awesome!  This week after having not found anyone to teach for quite a while we were blessed to find a few individuals who were willing to listen to us. It was definitely an answer to our prayers and also reminded us the Lord is always looking out for us.

This email is going to be a short one because of time but during my studies this week I kept reflecting on the Savior’s humility and of how calm He was when He was faced with adversity.

The little piggy who chased us!
Sometimes we forget the Savior truly did bear all things for us just so He would know how to succor us. Truly He felt way more pain and anguish than we will ever feel in our lifetime. But the Savior reminded us we should take His burden upon us and give Him ours because His burden is lighter. And what does our Savior expect of us?  He only asks that we share His gospel with those around us … certainly something we can all strive to do and we have the Savior's promise He will lead us and guide us.

In Matthew 11:29-30 the Savior reminds us to:

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

The Savior knows us and He knows our needs and He will always be there for us when we need Him.
