This week ended really weird. As of yesterday we were preparing to do some service in the evening because nobody was really around. My companion climbed up the tree and chopped and chopped, cutting limbs off left and right. Unfortunately the cover for the machete had started to slip, so he tried to adjust it. As he did so, his finger slipped and he sliced his finger. We ended up with the zone leaders and he got stitches. Now he can say that he put his blood, sweat, and tears in to that tree.
While this is just a temporary adventure of getting the finger healed we sometimes get hit with things bigger than just a little blood. Sometimes we have to do things that we never planned on doing, does God want us to fail? Does he not want us to do what we want? No, He wants us to become better. I know that we would never become better if we were never pushed, at least not near as much growth.
I hope that you are all growing and enduring and enjoying life, because it can become a real roller-coaster sometimes.
Doing some service for an investigator on Easter Monday.
Elder Shafer getting his finger dressed before we go to a doctor's office and get 5 stitches.
A halo around the sun while we were in Mo-Bay, isn't mother nature weird sometimes?
Also a great sunset that I got a picture of.
