Knocking doors!


Once again I had another great week!!

Monday evening we tried to see a few different investigators we don't meet with regularly and they dropped us so that is cool... NOT! That left us with 2 hours to knock doors! Knocking doors as a missionary is fun until you have to do it for a long period of time. We ended up parking the truck back at our apartment and started walking to the street. I told BOB and Elder McVey that we need to say a prayer so we said a prayer and all pointed what way we needed to go and it was the same way!! We ended up knocking almost the whole street and we got so many potential investigators! Unfortunately a lot of them are attending North Western Oklahoma State University and since it is spring break Alva is now population 3 (missionaries)

We were able to meet with Shyann and we found out that her family is against her being baptized and that is what has been holding her back. It's not because she is waiting for other missionaries to come back and baptize her. We challenged her to be reading and praying everyday. We also challenged her to pick her own baptism date because she wants to be baptized before she transfers schools on May 7th. Please pray for her to get baptized!!!!! She is so ready! She can teach us every lesson we have ๐Ÿ˜‚

Gwenna and Tim are doing awesome! Gwenna should be baptized yesterday but Tim isn't as far along as she is. Tim is going to take a little more time then Gwenna but he is so excited when we come over! In fact as I am writing this email Tim is texting me telling me I am lazy because he woke up at 4 to go to work and we woke up at 6:30. He is so funny!

Joy hasn't been doing so good. She has been having a lot of medical problems and has been suffering depression so if you could also keep her in your prayers that would be great!

Well we set a baptism date with Jimmie on Saturday and then Sunday we found out that what we had heard about his past is actually true so....We may be losing an investigator and baptism date. I guess it will all depend on what our mission president says!

The past few days we have had a Thunderstorm and it is so cool!! The street by our house is pretty much a river so now they dug up the road and are trying to fix it. Tornado season is approaching us really fast and I am so excited!! I just want to see a tornado plop down in a field outside of Alva and not destroy anything or kill anyone ๐Ÿ˜€

I'm not sure how many of you remember around Christmas when the church put out the video "A Savior Is Born". For this Easter the church has released another initiative video! It is called #Hallelujah

You can find the video at 

Check the website out and watch the video! Check the website everyday for new videos and things about Jesus Christ that will help you remember what he did for us.

I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that he loves us and through him we can return to live with our Heavenly Father because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The new Easter initiative video is a great finding tool! Share it with your friends, family, members, non members, EVERYONE!

I hope you have a great week! As President Walkenhorst would say.. 


Sincerely, Elder Brisk

That is all.

I forgot how much fun jumping on a trampoline is!! 
Thanks to the Smiley's for feeding us dinner and letting us use their trampoline ๐Ÿ˜„

Everyone likes when we coordinate our ties for some reason! I guess our white shirts aren't enough.

Rainy Days are always fun! Even when you go to McDonald's for lunch with Shyann! ๐ŸŒฆ
