Big efforts are paying off!


This week was crazy! It's spring break and UCO is closed. Luckily we found this bank with iPads they are letting us use! That means there will be no pics this look forward to many pics next week!! 😁

First off I want to thank the Hurricane 3rd ward Beehives for sending me a fun package this week! It was full of snacks and letters. Everything was blue. Except this one yellow letter. To the beehive who sent me the yellow letter I just want to say no I am not having fun in Singapore because I am in Oklahoma! Lol 😂

We found 3 new investigators because we have been knocking lots of doors. We put our own big effort in to finding and it is paying off! We found Steven...actually he found us! We were trying households on the records and he came up to us! He is super cool and has a great little family. We had the impression to try a member who is on the records even though it says they have moved. We found Courtney who said we can come back this upcoming Sunday. Her little boy has the flu so that is why we had to set the appointment so far away!

We meet Sister Pierce and her mother in law Sister Hansen. Sister Hansen is the funniest old lady I've ever met! It's kind of funny when old people start ranting. She talked about when she was working at the sheriffs office and would always give the inmates a Book of Mormon. We shouldn't use swear words but when she did it was hilarious 😂 

We went on splits with the teachers in our ward and it was so fun! They all loved it and got to see what missionary work is really like. Hopefully we can do it again!

We helped a family load a Budget truck because they moved to Utah. We will miss the Brittons! Sister Britton has a Mini Cooper and she loves it to death! She named it Velma and her and her son were just arguing about if it was a good car or not. Pretty fun family!

I had an exchange with Elder Ball this week! We ended up just walking and talking during the night. People weren't home or outside, not sure why!? We had a lot of fun and he kept me up till 11 talking! Okay jk it was my fault. You can't exchange and not pillow talk!

Elder Shira came with us Friday and we biked around all day! We saw Ron and had a good lesson. Ron and his family is struggling right now and we are going to do the addiction recovery program with them. Well try to. We are meeting with Ron and Janessa Tuesday to discuss it and how it will help hoping to get them on board.

Please pray for Elder Ball and Elder Shira because they have to deal with me as their district leader!! 😜🙏🏼

I got this quote in gospel doctrine and I really like it! It's from the October 2006 conference by Elder Robert D. Hales.
"For when we want to talk to God, we pray. And when we want him to speak to us, we search the scriptures; for his words are spoken through his prophets. He will teach us as we listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. If you have not heard his voice lately, return with new eyes and new ears to the scriptures. They are our spiritual lifeline. Behind the Iron Curtain, the saints survived because they heard his voice through the scriptures."

I bear testimony of the Book of Mormon and the powerful words they contain. We can always benefit from the scriptures as we search them for what God is trying to tell us.

Love Y'all!!!
❤️ Elder Brisk
