Snow in Cody

  Guess What!! IT SNOWED!!! We woke up Tuesday morning to 4 inches of snow!!!!It was crazy! So the week started out really cold but its slipped into an "Indian summer" as it’s called in these parts. The weather is back up to the mid 80's. This week was awesome and crazy, again! First of all I’m back in Cody again, it’s good to be back. However after only two days back my companion went on another switch for a week so now i am with Elder Brechter for this week but we are in Cody still which is nice.
  This week has been awesome and I have learned a lot. Yesterday elder Brechter and I had a awesome experience as we were out finding more people to teach! As we started out in the evening something didn't feel quite right. After a couple of minutes of this we decided to stop and say a prayer. After the prayer we still felt that we should continue with our original plan. The only difference was that now we felt good about it. As we went about talking to people we started to feel promptings to go to certain houses. As we followed the promptings we were led to the people we needed to see. Our plans didn't change at all after the prayer. The difference was that we were then more receptive to the guidance we needed to receive. I know that as were turn our focus to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ that we are then prepared to receive guidance through the Holy Ghost. Just like in the bible in Matthew chapter 14 when peter walks on the water to get to Christ. But when his focus leaves the Savior he begins to sink into the water. As long as he stayed focused on Christ through the storm he was able to do things that seem impossible. When we get distracted by the hard time and take our focus of the Savior we begin to sink into the depths of this stormy sea of a world. With all the craziness happening we need all the more to have a Christ centered attitude and as it says in Proverbs 3:5, " Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto thy own understanding." We need to rely on him and trust in the guidance he gives us ion all that we do!

I love you all

Trust in the Lord (Proverbs 3:5)
