Mesquite Nevada Stakes

Elder Jeremy Perkins

I am no longer in Rose City/Butler Creek anymore, but in a ward in Beaverton called Aloha, but it's pronounced (A-low-ah) for some reason. My companions' names are Elder Knudsen and Elder King. They are both amazing! They are both going home in 2 weeks though so I'm going to get another companion. Our area is doing really well! We have a baptism coming up on Saturday and one on the 31st! Also in my last area in Gresham Ruben is getting baptized on the 31st as well! Miracles are among us! I love our mission, we have some amazing missionaries here. President and Sister Haymond are motivating and inspired leaders. They and some other missionaries have come up with the goal of achieving 50 baptisms in the month of August. We have faith that we will achieve this and that the Lord will place those in our path who are ready! Our mission on average has 30 baptism's a month, there are 60+ missionaries leaving at the end of August and so the Haymonds want them to go out with a BANG! I've been thinking a lot this past week about the merciful love of our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I've also been thinking about the commandments and the importance it is to be obedient. There was a scripture I read this past week found in 2 Nephi 4:18-20 and it says "I am encompassed about, because of the temptations and the sins which do so easily beset me. And when I desire to rejoice, my heart groaneth because of my sins; nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted. My God hath been my support; he hath led me through mine afflictions in the wilderness; and he hath preserved me upon the waters of the great deep." It's amazing to think that even when we do mess up we can be "preserved" because of Jesus Christ. Hope everyone has a great week!elderjeremyperkins
