8/25/14 – Week 25 Or Somethin err Other


G'Day,

Well My mother has officially moved into my mission boundaries! Weird..... In other news.. It has been a fantastical week! We have some investigators who are like REALLY struggling, they know the church is true, they want to be baptized, they know what the Spirit feels like, yet they continue to allow Satan to tempt them to do evil. AND they won't quit smoking. It's hard to hear about things they are still involved in when every time we are there are just 100% like YEAH LET’S GET BAPTIZED. They have a baptismal date set for November 8th. I may or may not still be in this area we'll see. Transfers are coming up here on the 10th and we are pretty sure that we won't be together any longer than this one transfer... The typical trend seems to be that companions that are best friends only stay together for a transfer. Plus I have had 4 companions in 4 transfers. I'm really hoping that if Elder Downey and I don't stay together that I'll get to train a new Elder and that we will 'whitewash'. I think that'd be so fun. Plus it'd be nice to get a refresher of the 12 week program for myself. We had an Elder from the 1st Quorum of the Seventy visit this last Saturday! That was really fun, he was a funny guy. He even made a joke about the temple videos (which essentially just gave all the missionaries permission to do so as well.... haha). He (God) answered a lot of my prayers though, was LEGIT! It was kinda weird though, he didn't visit the whole mission. Only the 4 zones that are in Pocatello. We have like 13 or 14 zones in the mission too!

Pics: Found a random typewriter in our apartment and ended up writing a couple of letters with it haha. Was a struggle. Plus it didn't write some letters like y,j,g,p, and some others i think. 

Love you all!
Elder Gillespie


3 Nephi 18: 6-11 “And this shall ye always observe to do, even as I have done, even as I have broken bread and blessed it and given it unto you. And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you. And it came to pass that when he said these words, he commanded his disciples that they should take of the wine of the cup and drink of it, and that they should also give unto the multitude that they might drink of it. And it came to pass that they did so, and did drink of it and were filled; and they gave unto the multitude, and they did drink, and they were filled. And when the disciples had done this, Jesus said unto them: Blessed are ye for this thing which ye have done, for this is fulfilling my commandments, and this doth witness unto the Father that ye are willing to do that which I have commanded you. And this shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name; and ye shall do it in remembrance of my blood, which I have shed for you, that ye may witness unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.”
