HOMEWORK FROM ELDER MAXWELL!! Email 2/23/2015

Ok so MONDAY pday, movie, soccer, normal.
TUESDAY, we had district meeting that went well. It was cool because one of the sisters thanked me for the class and said that that was just what i needed. Sweet. 
WEDNESDAY, we taught an investigator named Angi. She is sooo awesome. Then we taught the Rios family and their daughter helped teach the lesson on repentance. It was sweet. We also contacted a lot today. I love contacting now. It’s the greatest. 
THURSDAY, today we taught a less active named Manuel. We talked about a lot of interesting things like polygamy. Ha-ha. But it was cool because we were able to apply that to faith, not having a perfect knowledge as well as repentance. It was awesome and at the end of the lesson he thanked us and said that he had learned a lot! Cool!!!!
FRIDAY, today i want to share what i studied. In Alma 43 verses 45 and 48 through 51.

Here the Lamanites are going to battle with the Nephites. Moroni is the Nephite captain. So here is some hmwk fam! haha. Read vs 45

45 Nevertheless, the Nephites were inspired by a better cause, for they were not fighting for monarchy nor power but they were fighting for their homes and their liberties, their wives and their children, and their all, yea, for their rites of worship and their church.

.
Then ask.  “What is the greater cause in our lives? What are we fighting for?” We fight against evil, against the adversary, and we have much a greater cause... eternal life. Especially as a family... A cause worth fighting for.  Then read 48 through 51.

48 And it came to pass that when the men of Moroni saw the fierceness and the anger of the Lamanites, they were about to shrink and flee from them. And Moroni, perceiving their intent, sent forth and inspired their hearts with these thoughts—yea, the thoughts of their lands, their liberty, yea, their freedom from bondage.
49 And it came to pass that they turned upon the Lamanites, and they cried with one voice unto the Lord their God, for their liberty and their freedom from bondage.
50 And they began to stand against the Lamanites with power; and in that selfsame hour that they cried unto the Lord for their freedom, the Lamanites began to flee before them; and they fled even to the waters of Sidon.
51 Now, the Lamanites were more numerous, yea, by more than double the number of the Nephites; nevertheless, they were driven insomuch that they were gathered together in one body in the valley, upon the bank by the river Sidon

 The enemy was more than twice the size. But who won? And why? It is just like us at school or at work. Maybe more than half the people choose wrongly, or more than half are against us in making a good decision, but who will win in the end? If we pray for strength, even though we might be scared, and are about to shrink and flee and fall into temptation, if we cry unto the Lord for this greater cause, WE WILL PREVAIL! Because God will be with us. So remember CTR! Even if we are outnumbered! 
SATURDAY, today the missionaries from the ccm came to proselyte with us in our area. It was awesome. I went with elder Varner from Las Vegas. He couldnt speak Spanish but as he tried to bear his testimony to an investigator I felt the spirit strongly. I told him that it doesnt matter if he makes a mistake speaking, because if he has the spirit with him, the message that that person needs will get across to them. Cool guy. 
  SUNDAY, today Angi came to church! She said that she loved it and that she wants to come back every Sunday!!!!! and in YW they talked about serving missions and she told me that after she learns more about the gospel, that she might want to go!!!!! What?!?!?!?! Cool!!!!!! So today we also did numbers and we accomplished the goals of excelence again!!! and this time we had 81 contacts! I love contacting now! Ha-ha. I am so happy!!!!
   Thanks you all for everything! I love you all! Take care and have a great week!
