Week 32 - Six Weeks More

Hello All!

    Well, West Lethbridge is as good as ever, and it'll be that way for at least another six weeks!  Neither Elder Law nor myself will be transferred this transfer, which is a little weird, but also awesome.  I've loved this area so much, and it'll be great to see how much the Lord will give us as we continue to work hard and try to find the work He's prepared for us.
    Not too much to update ya'll on this week.  It's been tough to find times to meet with people, and Randy, sadly, dropped us this week.  He's a great guy, and we'll hope for good things in the coming weeks for him.
    Sam didn't make it to church this week, and some things came up that will prevent him from being baptized this week.  We'll keep working with him, however, and hope that he keeps progressing and working towards that covenant with his Heavenly Father.  
    Rob is doing just as fantastically as ever!  We were able to meet with him once this week, and taught him the Law of Tithing.  Apparently, he's been asking his fiancee when he can start paying his tithing.  They're even going through a pretty tough time financially right now, and he's still so willing and excited to do everything he can to keep his Father in Heaven's commandments.  
    There was also some exciting news this week regarding the husband of one of the members of our primary presidency.  I told you a little about him last week, but he was at church this past Sunday...and stayed all three hours!  It seems like he's making really great progress, and we're hoping to see something come of it all soon.
    This week, we taught Gospel Principles...again, and the lesson was on the Creation.  It was actually really interesting and somewhat challenging to teach on it.  There was one scripture that stood out to me particularly as we were talking about all the incredible things our Heavenly Father has given us.  It's D&C 59:18-19:"Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart; Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul." This Earth and everything on it, in it, above and under it was created for us.  Our Father in Heaven loves us so much, that He has given us this incredibly beautiful and useful world, and I, for one, am so incredibly grateful for all of it.
    Well, my beautiful friends and family, have a fantastic week!  Good luck with all you're doing, and always remember how much your Father loves you.  Never forget that, and you'll be able to get through anything.  Be good!  Have fun!

I love you all so much,
Elder Hafen
