The shoes...

Elder Ivins is staying in Billingham another transfer.This is Spud. A regular in Billingham and is all about "beating the man".  Elder Ivins, thinking it was his last week had to get a picture with Spud.  I also love the picture above because we love everyone and all of us need to hear the message! Let the one who hears the message decide, not the messenger. Billingham likes Elder Ivins and  they just like him to well to change!
This is just a quick video about the relationship between a missionary and his shoes.

The Birthday Video...


Audrey made this video for Isaac on his birthday. Really sweet. She got in touch with so many of his friends. Then a family in England made his favorite ice-cream cake for his birthday, Mint Chip Freeze. He loved it! Happy Birthday Missionary!

Photo: It all came together and he was so happy!!!

the 'cost and blessings of discipleship'

idea taken from the idea of Jeffery R Holland's conference 2014 talk.
read his talk  here

"Serving is great. So this week was a bit of a downer. March 10th. Take out. Sick. Puking.
My companion was peanut-ed."
What's peanut-ed?
"They pull the tie down really hard and it tightens the knot too much that it gets stuck.
Pennies thrown at us. Called Jehovahies.
I let them know we weren't Jehovah Witnesses.   That we were representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It felt good to stick up for our selves." On another note:

It is difficult to share the Book of Mormon when so many people are reading the Newly Translated Bible. They find it difficult to read the thees and thous ....So, stick to the King James Version. That is the purest version anyhow...leave the translating up to yourselves and God....

The agency blues

"...I enjoy my mission, and even the days when nothing changes, nothing happens, and the people ignore us, I feel that my best day was enough, that my part was fulfilled, the people have agency and as painful as it is to see them reject this gospel I know I did not waste one moment."

The Bike II

The Bike man came back into the picture and I will get an update.
