Tristan's Testimony 4/2014

Well I could tell you a huge testimony and just tell you how much the lord has blessed me on this mission, but something I have learned is that sometimes the most powerful testimonys are the simplest! So I will quickly share that I know without a doubt this is the true church, that there is a God and he loves each and everyone of us! I know that because of the lord I am able to have a strong family in the church and because of his son Jesus Christ I can be forgiven of my sins and make it back to him! One of my favorite quotes that I heard from the conference is from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf its in 1 nephi and it simply states that it is AFTER all we do, that by gods grace we will be saved!

May 2016

May 2nd -... But lots of miracles this week, so we decided to go to this house that was pretty far off that we thought was a past investigator that got dropped so we went there and as we started teaching it came to me to start asking inspired questions and then I found out she is a member who has been inactive or less active for a couple of years. But she accepted our invitation to come to church this last Sunday and it was awesome to actually see members sit with them and help us out. So that was probably two miracles some other ones would be that our investigator attended church finally and she wants to invite her friends this next Sunday so we will see how that goes. :) Lots of other miracles also like we had an investigator who told us they didn't want to come to church but that morning we stopped by their house and they were dressed and ready to go for church so that was another huge blessing. But this last Monday we went to a cave or just earlier I mean and I have the coolest pics ever to show you. It is so beautiful. Hahaha we also have to clean our apartment its hard with 4 guys that don't like cleaning haha but we have to get it nice and clean this Thursday. :) What else. . . nothing too much feeling better..Love you guys sending pics in just one sec. Love Elder Herrin aka Russell Westbrooke












May 15th-So pretty good week. I will start with some miracles. . . the first one is that we have had a few less actives and inactives for a few years come back to church last sunday so that was huge. We finally got a new referral from a member and we ended up finding out that one of her kids thats in another country is a member of our church. :) So lots of miracles everywhere. :)  But I gave a talk about missionary work last sunday and talked about families and just said that missionary work starts in the home and I realized since I have been on the mission that I wouldn't be here without you guys so I thank you for the missionary work you did with us boys. Love you mom and dad haha. :) ...but here in Lopez its been sad lately there have just been lots of people trying to get other members to go against the leaders in the church and like at first it makes me mad but then just sad because it reminds me of the story of alma the younger and the four sons of mosiah and just how they went around trying to destroy the church, The only reason they are doing it is because they want to have leadership in the church and its not going to happen. they are Rms to which is the saddest part. But its okay the lord will bless the work here and will continue to stop those that try and destroy his church. :) But anyways glad everyone is doing well it was great skyping you guys. I will try and send some pics soon. Love ;you guys love Elder Herrin

May 22nd-So even bigger miracle we had 7 people attend church this last sunday with like 4 less active families we should have had 2 other investigators that should have attended but they where busy. But its been tons of miracles this week. So we have started asking referrals from less active members and just asked them who else do you know that would be interested in our message and they gave us a few and we still have to tract some others that people have gave us. Since I have been here this last sunday has been the best for church attendance in Lopez. Its been really cool. I am loving the work I am getting nervous to go home and a bit excited its so hard to think about it kinda brings emotions that are sad haha just all I have missed and all I am going to miss here. But anyways I am just trying to focus on the work.. .  Its been raining a lot here and I have holes in both of my shoes now that mud and water get into so I am using my last pair of fancy shoes I bought a while ago haha they are fragile little things. I am going to try to buy a pair of rubber shoes soon. :) ..We have been playing chess alot at the apartment sometimes I am good then other times I mess up a ton but its fun and helps just relax and clear you mind.  But we played basketball earlier also and i cut my finger I have no feeling in it and it sucks to type with haha. :) But doing good trying to stay healthy buy doing push ups sit ups and using the little bar bells hahah. :) Its hard but I am glad I haven't gotten fat haha. :) Anyways love you guys I will hopefully send pics of our investigators next week and less actives that we have grown to love tons. But for now I will send what I have haha. :) Love you guys love Elder Herrin aka The Cat In The Hat. P.S. I love drinking Coconut juice and eating the inside when its soft or hard its sweet. I eat a ton and ate it almost everyday this week. :) But Love you guys tons sending pics in a minute. :)
May 29th-So let me tell you this week. . .  we will start on wednsday- LBM. . we worked taught good lessons then I got a fever, next day Thursday- not feeling too well still have lbm but my fever went down a bit so I went to work came home early because I couldn't do it anymore right when I got home I fell asleep. Friday took my temperature 101.3 degree temperature I was dying I felt so sick, Sister Mangum just told me to continue to take ibuprofuen and drink plenty and rest plenty. A member told me to buy bioflu so when saturday came around I bought bioflu myfever went away but my stomach still hurt but the thing is I havent eaten anything what soever from wednsday until saturday I just drank lots of gatorade. I lost 4 kilos this week. Which is about 8 pounds I feel pretty weak but I am slowly trying to recover right now eating and snacking when ever I can. I am already skinny I didn't need to lost 8 pounds. But my stomach is still upset but I am trying to eat and hopefully this week my stomach will get better but at least my fever is gone. So I am sorry not to many miracles this week we had lots of investigators again which was a blessing and now have a new investigator who wants to be baptized but she needs the permission of her father. :) So even tho I have been sick and havent been able to work lots this week I am still seeing the miracles everywhere in this work. :) I am glad to hear you guys had a great week and hope you are having a great memorial day. :) ....Love you guys love Elder Herrin aka Tiny Tim with my sickness haha :) I don't think I have food poisoning haha or dengue so thats good. :) count your blessings right hahaha
