A New 'Tude

Dear Family and Friends -
One of my favorite quotes goes along the lines of "treat a man as he could be, and he will become" Something I have seen come true this week, many a times.
As a missionary we find people all the time that have left the church, or stopped investigating for one reason or another. And when we find them and we start to talk to the people who knew them, a common denominator is that they say, "oh I miss them, BUT..." or "they are great, BUT..." And I found that when the members, or missionaries have this attitude that people are just lost, or weird, or mean - the people will become as such. Where as if we treat him/her like a child of God, which they are, they will improve and become amazing!
"Attitude determines altitude"
We had an incredible week this week! We had meetings nearly everyday, so my brain is slammed with so much revelation it could explode! We also had HEAPS of service opportunities, so it was pretty exhausting but way fun! Our zone seems like it is going to be really good this transfer, everyone is already getting along well, and it's gonna be fun!
The members were awesome this week and this ward is ready for some miracles! We have a big area fast coming up for the hastening of the work so I'm excited to see what's in store!
Love you all Heaps!
