Selwin's Full Week

President and Sister Olson
Hurray!!! We finally got to spend a full week in our area again. It was really good.

This week we were also blessed with the teachings of President Olson at our  Zone Conference and it was really good. It's amazing how much more you learn when the man who holds the keys to the mission teaches and the spirit which comes with him is definitely incredible. We got to be part of the conference and got to do some acting for them and let's just say it was something they will never forget as we taught them about planning more effectively for those individuals that the Lord has blessed us with and not just considering them another statistic. We also got to do exchanges with the elders from Texarkana, Texas and that was awesome.  We got to double work our area so that was even more awesome. We taught quite a bit this week and we are seeing some progression in one of our eternal investigators. It’s really promising.

a few winks!
This week I was reminded of where we have to stand as individuals and as families as the world becomes more accepting to the standards of men rather than God.  The Apostle Peter said in Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, we ought to obey God rather than men."

President Gordon B. Hinckley then said: "The world is constantly crowding in on us. From all sides we feel the pressure to soften our stance, to give in here a little and there a little.

“We must never lose sight of our objective. We must ever keep before us the goal which the Lord has set for us. …

“We must stand firm. We must hold back the world. If we do so, the Almighty will be our strength and our protector, our guide and our revelator. We shall have the comfort of knowing that we are doing what He would have us do."

I don't think anything needs to be added to that and to my bro, don't worry. You'll always be a servant of the Lord. The Savior Lives!!!
