Tyler’s Letter – 02/08/2016 – Fallen Through

Before I talk about anything else I just want to bear testimony that everything happens for a reason. When something falls through there is a reason for it. There is no coincidence. Take that into account for a week and see how it makes your actions and reactions different.

Hello everyone!

Another week in the winter wonderlands of Oscoda, Michigan. I don’t at all remember what I wrote last week and I’m running out of time so I am probably going to repeat myself but oh well.

We had four majorly important lessons set up throughout last week with our investigators, and had plans for members to be there at those lessons as well: the ideal situation. All four of them ended up falling through. Additionally, a lot of the other people we attempted to visit were not home or were busy, and I am feeling pretty sick. But friends and family I can promise you that everything happens for a reason, and all of the trials and experiences of this life and of this month and of this week and of this moment are going to be for our benefit. Let it work for your benefit.

Tyler with Blazzard

Saturday we were knocking in the old air force base. We are not solicitors. We are not soliciting funds. We have a right to knock on peoples doors and talk to them; however, time after time we ended up with people angry and contentious or yelling at us or slamming their doors on Saturday. Oh and threatening to call HOA or the cops. But it was all worth it because we did find one person who is interested in learning, and whose father has cancer. Hope we are able to come and teach them soon.

On a bright note, last Monday, as a district we all went to the Tanger Outlets near West Branch and I ended up with some nice Vanheusen getup. It’s the little things in life, right? 😉
Oh and I also schooled the whole district at Monopoly Millionaire, which gave me a pretty big sense of accomplishment.

Keep pushing through, there is light at the end of the tunnel, there is hope shining brightly before us, and deliverance is nigh. If we hold on to the principles of the Gospel nothing can ever go permanently wrong. The Savior is our foundation for peace and joy in this life and in the life to come, and He is Jesus Christ. Of these things I testify in the name of Him, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, amen.
