God does Love Us!

God does love us, and I would like to talk a bit about Danny!

For all y'all who are in the dark and don't know Danny! He was a good friend of my family who passed away this week! 

After hearing about that I was shocked but I opened the True to the Faith and read a bit about the spirit world. It brought so much peace to my heart. To know that God does love us and he made the plan of happiness to show his love! 

In  Alma 40: 11, Alma talks about how when spirits die they "...are taken home to that God who gave them life." How great of a bless is that Danny to be with our Father in Heaven! 

Then we know that God will send him to the spirit world. There he can either be place in spirit prison. Even though it doesn't sound like a great place it still is better then we think! The souls that go there are those who “died in their sins, without knowledge of the truth, oin transgression, having rejected the prophets” 
(D&C 138:32) There they will be able to be taught the gospel and have the opportunity to repent and accept ordinances of salvation that are performed for them in temples! That means that everyone who goes there has a fantastic opportunity! 

Then they will join the spirits to who are in spirit paradise! I love that place! It is a place of peace and happiness! So all we can do is pray that Danny makes it to the spirit paradise! 

And I pretty sure that it you need to tell Danny anything, tell God, I am pretty sure he will deliver the message for you! 

Any who, time for my weekly update! 

So on Tuesday we had District meeting and Elder Yates Talked about working with members! It's so tough here! But if it's God's will then His will must be done! 
I really Enjoyed that!

Then we tried to find some people! 

Then on Saturday we blitz Omagh! A blitz is where multiple sets of missionaries are in the same area! So we had the Derry elders Down here and the Letterkenny sisters! They helped us find some people! Which they did! Thank you sisters! That was fun! 

I spent the whole day with elder Reeder! He's from South Africa and so funny! 

But I'm Sorry for the short Email! Not really Much has gone on! 

But I do love you all and I love hearing from you! I do love my heavenly father and I do know that he loves me! 

Talk to you next week!

I love Everyone!

Well first thing first, Mom I love you! I hope your Foot is doing well! 

now back to my letter! So me biked to Derry last Monday! That was a horrible idea! It was great memories, just dumb! It was just under 40 miles! we thought it was going to take us like 3.5 hours, because that is what Google maps said but... nah ... it took took us 6 hours! I though we were never going to get there! 

I did feel what enduring to the end feels like! It sucks! it's the very end however it's is awesome! It was a great learning experience! 

then it turned out that we didn't have district meet on Tuesday but we we went on exchanges!  It was a great time! he is a fantastic missionary! but apparently we did something that broke the law! We didn't even find out about it until like Sunday

What we did was we took the table from the the Derry Chapel and made a small stand right outside that church! we found one less active from it! so it work! however this sunday  elder Yates ward mission leader came up to him and told him that if the police would have drove by we would have had gone to jail! hahaha that would be probably the best opportunity to preach the gospel! :) so i would have been okay with it! Obviously god was on our side because no police drove by! 

We exchange back..
then we continued through out the week to find someone! however on sunday was there was a really cool experience!

We have this resent convert who feels like the gospel is controlling her a bit because she is saying that she is 36 and has a kid so, she makes it sounds like she's more mature then the gospel in some parts of it! 

So she basically dumped this boy that was wanting to take her to Paris! So then saturday night she went out with some friends and she said that she got home at 4:50 am! I really didn't care because she is 36! but then we went threw all of church and started eating dinners at Tom's house! Then her son asked her "what time did you go to bed mom?" she replied, "6:30 am" then it clicked in my head! I said, "wait... what did you do for that hour and a half when you were home?" 

She got really embarrassed and she said, "well, Nick came over!" I almost lost it! however, i kept calm! kinda! I kept probing around to see like what happened and everything! then she got really upset when i went to far! like a usually do! but we said our sorries and now we are cool! 

it's weird because ever since elder smiler has been here she has slowly been going down hill! I wouldn't want to say that he is the cause of it! but I have a strong feeling he doesn't have the best influence on her!

He is just doesn't have a serious attitude when he here's what Rachel has been doing! 

But i talked to MTC companion about it and he helped me out! I love him! Elder Neideck will always have a  place in my heart!

Well that is my update! I love you all. Keep the spirits with in thee! AKA be worthy to hold the holy ghost!

Happy Birthday Mother DEAR!


I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

To start off I'm going to Answer my dad's question! NO dad I didn't get Mom's Email This week or the past few weeks! I Email my president to see what i should do! It's annoying because now i don't know who has been emailing me and who hasn't! Oh well life will go on! 

Any whom! My weekly update so we'll start on Tuesday, Right?

We had zone development and that was a blast! I basically talked with Elder Farnsworth the whole time! I LOVE that kid! He is about to go home! it's sad! He is so funny! I will miss him!

We tried to find someone on Wednesday Thursday Friday

On Saturday sister wager came into town and she is still crazy! Nice but crazy! we passed plat inspections and everything! we didn't even clean the shower and she didn't even notice! sneaky sneaky! 

we also taught a less active name Ian this week! It's funny because around the mission there is a rumor that every less active has some type of dolphin in their house! the dolphin could be a painting, shower curtains, or or even a wee statue! so this visit was the visit that I was going to find the dolphin, Because missionaries in the past have said they found it and got rid of it and the less active started to come to church and everything! ( dolphins are of the devil ) she I asked him if I could use the toilet and the I FOUND IT! Sitting on the toilet mocking me! I really didn't have to go to the bathroom I just want to find the Dolphin! So, I flush the toilet and grab the dolphin! I walk into the room and asked Ian where got it! He told us that one of the members gave it to him! So we finish our lesson and then before we were about to leave I asked him if I could buy off the dolphin from him... He said no....... Because it was part of a set! So if I ever see him again I'm going to ask if i could buy the whole set! :)

However we did go over to this part member family and she is less active and he is a christian. He think church is controlling! He's kind of a lost soul and but has a REALLY strong belief in Jesus Christ! However it's funny since he think church is so controlling he started his own church! CRAZY RIGHT! Poor guy, One day I am going to lay down the law with him! Probably when I get moved Or something! 

However that was our adventures for the week! I love you! Let me know if you guys been emailing me! Because I haven't been getting some of your Emails and then I hear that you have been Emailing me Weekly! 

Well Love!

Elder Smith!

P.S. we and my companion are going to ride our bike form omagh to derry! Its about 40 miles I can't wait! LOVES!

He sent a blank one first :)

Sorry I keep send a blank one for some reason! I guess I am to excited to email all yall!!

This week was pretty normal! 

Tuesday we had district meeting! That was pretty Great! The instruction was on trust in the lord! If you would put all your trust into one person, might as well make it the lord!

Then we retrieved my bike back from the bike shop and then the derry elders came to Omagh to help us find someone!

So I went with Elder Yates! he is such a goob! I love that kid so much! It's always a great time! While we were blitzing Omagh we talked to our recent convert, Rachel the one i told you about going to Paris with you boyfriend, however she was finally convinced that she shouldn't go! and we didn't even do the convincing! I just asked her what is the Holy Ghost telling you!  Then it all seemed to Click! 

Isn't God Great! He's the Man! 

Then Thursday Friday we tried to find people but nothing this week! Then Saturday Evening we watched GENERAL CONFERENCE! I Flippin Loved it! Honestly, the speakers were totally inspired! I feel like they were speaking to me like on a one on one bases! It's just awesome! I didn't get the chance to watch the Sunday afternoon session! I'll just have to download it and watch in on our DVD player! PARTY! 

Anyways, After watch general Conference I felt the spirit testify to me multiple times that Thomas S. Monson it a prophet of god, AND that is church is the church of Jesus Christ! AND it is the church to be in! that's the truth right there! 

Anyways, I love you all! I can't wait to hear form you next week! Farewell love ones!
