Hey Everyone! 

This week was really good! We worked super hard and had like 16 hours of service, Saturday was a day or service for 9/11. We got together as a stake and did a bunch of different projects. We ended up helping clearing part of a beach of blackberries. It was fun we all got scratched up pretty good. Other than that, our area is doing fine. We are still trying to find new people somewhat. We had to drop Brady because he simply does not want to progress and is not doing anything we ask him to. Vernita is still super busy and works a lot. Josh (Our less active we are helping go back to church and Temple) is doing okay and has been coming to church for all three hours for the last couple of times.

Yesterday was 9/11. As I thought about that the only verse thae came to me was about the title of Liberty in  Alma 46:1

12 And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.

...In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children...  I think that is about all I can say about that right now. I don't want to cry in the library... 

Yesterday was also really good in Sacrament meeting because our Branch President gave a good talk about Peter and when Jesus was walking on water, the lesson and point he talked about is we have to try out best to get out of the boat. The greatest invitation we all get in from Jesus, and it is one word: Come.  

All of our fears, all of our doubts, all of our pain, we can overcome it all. If we heed his call: Come. 

Matthew 11:28
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

I don't have many words today, but the truths contained herein are amazing and these are the truths that change lives. Let them change yours.

Elder Galloway
