The Plan of Salvation is Real!

Wow! I hope we get to watch all that stuff about hastening the work in Africa also!   Eish! I get to watch General Conference on the 26th of April. I can't believe you all got to share in a part of the work we are doing here!!! (He’s responding to the report I told him I watched  in between General Conference about Africa being one of the largest growing area’s in the church). The area I'm in is crazy...(church) groups are forming and we're trying to visit all of them and get them in order and organized. It's crazy!!!
Wow, I wish I could mourn with the Johnson family....I love that family. They were always happy and I'm sure they will still be. Joseph Smith once said that it is required of us to mourn with those who mourn and comfort those who stand in need of comfort but that we should be happy because the Plan of Salvation is REAL and we WILL all be together again and we will live with our Father in Heaven once again! THAT is the message we are spreading. The messages that go with it are only appendages and that wonderful Plan our God has made for us is the "good news" the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I wish I could have been there with the family to say goodbye but I am happy that someday I can share the stories of how much I learned and then I can sit at her feet and have her teach me all the things I have missed. She was a wonderful women and I really will miss her. I will always remember the talk she gave in stake conference.
So, this week has been ROUGH! People have just been gone or if they're home they just don't want to hear the message :P Elder Allen and I have been a little bit discouraged but I'm sure the Lord is just trying us and wants to see if we are willing to endure to see the miracles to come.. :) I can't wait :) At least it's better than enduring as Job did or Alma and Amulek :P They had it BAD! haha
So, Not much to tell this week  other than a lot of mission low going on over here but I do want to give a shout out to Elder Allen’s Mom and Dad cause I think they read the blog! HEY! You have one of the coolest sons and I am so happy that we get to be companions! He is the man and I can't wait to meet you all in person cause I've heard so much about you! Alright y'all well have a nice week :) Love you guys! And I hope that both our weeks can pick up! I hope everyone is getting better at home and someone better give me Jons contacts because I want to talk to him! Tell him I said sorry man! That sucks! Wish we could have been stuck in the same airport then we could have done something fun.....like sleep...don't get enough of that :P haha Love you all!
Elder Petrie
