With God, all things are possible

 I'm in a pill box on the top of a mountain! it was pretty cool. The picture above is on top of where I was in this picture

Not much happened this week, but we are just continuing to teach our investigators and get them ready for baptism. 

Over the past few weeks since we have bikes now, my companion has lost close to 10 pounds! I'm sure it's because it's still pretty hot and humid over here. But it's been awesome because a ton of people will pick us up and give us rides even if they aren't members. So it's actually helped us to be able to teach a little bit more :) 

I found a scripture that I really like referring to. It's the story of the rich young man who asked Jesus how he will be able to make it into the kingdom of heaven.. Jesus told him to simply follow all the commandments.. and the rich young man said that he already does that! So Jesus told him to leave all his riches behind and pick up his cross and follow him. The rich young man didn't like that and got sad and walked away... Jesus then told the disciples following him that for that man it would be harder for him to make it into the kingdom of heaven than a camel to fit through the eye of a needle. The disciples asked how can we just leave everything and still provide for our families and survive? And Jesus told them "For man it is impossible, but not with God. With God, all things are possible." This transfer I'm going to try to focus on that quote and further put my faith in the Lord, and be as selfless as I can.  I know if I rely on the Lord I'll be able to be further converted to the gospel and also Will be able to convert others. 

I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Love Elder Collings
