working a lot / added unto him

Alright here's a little update for the week. We had a good one! First off it was transfers on wednesday. We have a new addition to the companionship--Elder Johnson (as you may have seen in the pictures). Yeah it's really cool since we've known each other practically our whole lives. We've had a good week. It's awesome being in a trio because now whenever we go out with a member we can split up and can accomplish the work of two companionships. We've been working a lot with Mike and Demitrick and kelly. 
We had a funny experience this week. We were out with a member and it was storming and dark and we were on this awesome ghetto road and this guy walked by us on the street and said, "hey y'all gotta tell me I ain't trippin. Tell me what those look like"--then he pointed up to some freeway lights that were nearby. You could only see the lights because it was dark. "ain't those lookin like UFO's?" The member we were with tried to convince him they were just lights but he didn't believe us. Well, I gotta go there's a lot more I wish I could tell you but I'm outta time. 
Love y'all, Elder Russell

 Insert from Mom...So this Elder on Michael's left is Elder Johnson. We have been good friends with their family since they were babies. We thought it awesome they were called to the same mission and even cooler that they get to be companions now!!!

19 And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred foldyea, more.  I thought that was a really cool scripture I have really felt that in my personal life lately, especially as I study and pray sometimes I feel like it would be awesome to have a day to Study, pray and maybe eat some food. here is a related scripture

17 Verily, verily, say unto you, ye are little childrenand ye have not as yet understood how great blessings the Father hath in his own hands and prepared for you;
 18 And ye cannot bear all things now; nevertheless, be of good cheerfor will lead you along. The kingdom is yours and the blessings thereof are yours, and the riches of eternity are yours. Love you and good luck even though I dont believe in luck.  Heavenly Father is over all things. Elder Seffker
