The week I went North.

So, this week I traveled a bit on Thursday. We had a conference with a lot of Missionaries and our leaders in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It's kinda like Sioux City but bigger, cleaner, and more north. It was a super awesome conference. We were instructed on how we must better use the Holy Ghost in our teachings and how we must always avoid when the Devil tries to lie to us. It was super insightful and I got some plans from that to be a better missionary. 

Some other Elders in Sioux City called us and asked for our help with someone moving. They were told that someone needed help moving a washer and a dryer. So we were ready to move just that. But it was a bit more than that. This lady had a bedroom set, some lawn stuff, 3 WASHERS, and 2 DRYERS for us to move. It was a lot of stuff! It took like 4 hours to get it loaded and then unloaded. Yeah. Lots of work for that day. 

Then on Wednesday, I spent the day in Vermillion, South Dakota which is like not that far from Sioux City. It was a sweet day and we met this awesome family who haven't come to church in a while. The reason they haven't really come to church is because the mom of the family had a dream that told her that religion can't save her: only Jesus Christ can save her. And that is true. Only Jesus Christ can save us from our sins and from death. But he has set his Authority in his one true church so that we can access him. Without the Authority that God has given to man, we cannot be fully saved. To be fully saved, we must be baptized by someone who has God's Authority. That's why God chooses to work through a church so that we can be fully saved in His Kingdom after death. She saw that and decided that she will ask God again to see if she needs a religion in her life. We are going to see her this week and we are very excited to meet with her! 

I hope you all have a great week!
With love,
Elder Cox
