Count your many Blessings...

Hello Everyone...
Dont have a lot of time today...but we had a wonderful first week of the transfer...everyone got to their new area safe...even though it was kind of hectic...haha but it was a great day Monday...we greeted new missionaries at the airport at 8 o clock in the morning and were giving them the First Day training... The next day we sent other missionaries home...so spent a lot of time in the airport this past week...It is crazy the enthusiasmo that the new missionaries bring to the mission...Everyone so happy so excited...

This week we also had quite a bit of time in our area teaching more people...On one occasion we entered into a house that we just had contacted, we noticed a young boy sitting on the bed with his legs crossed...we continued trying to get to know the family and one by one members of the family expressed what was their greatest desire in this life... The young boy was up...it was his turn to express his greatest desire...He said...to walk...We then found out that he was paralyzed from the waist down and that he hadnt been able to walk for his whole life...We almost started to cry...He is so tender and loving...We expressed the love God has for him...After finishing up with the lesson the young boy asked if we could take a picture with him...so attached you will find a picture of this us and this young boy...We left the house amazed that almost always we take for granted this wonderful blessing... Later on in the week when missionaries would call me and they would tell me of how many blisters they have on their feet or how tired they were from so much walking I would explain to them of how great a blessing it is to even be able to walk and tell them this story I just described...It has changed a few missionaries mindsets while they are walking...

From this story I have realized a little more of how many things we do take for granted...We are so blessed...We have so many blessings from our Father in Heaven...We are so spoiled...

Love you all

 So funny story we got locked out of our house haha so using some Redneck ingenuity, a concrete nail, a brick, and a used paint roller we finally broke ourselves in...haha We just punched a hole through the metal door and shoved the paint roller through the hole and opened the door :)
