Elder Collins

Hey family, Well this week was better for sure. We had a conference with an area 70, Elder Torres, and it was awesome! I felt the spirit so strongly and it was all about prayer and relying on the spirit for this work. Thats something that ive been thinking about a lot the last couple of weeks. I was worried that our zone or maybe even mission is loosing site of the fact that the spirit is everything! I love a quote in preach my gospel by President Benson that says something like "the spirit is everything and is the most important element in this work. Without the spirit you will not succeed regardless of knowledge, talent or ability." He taught us something way cool that i never noticed before. In every situation in the Book of Mormon that there is problem, the prophets or whoever it is always pray before they solve or overcome the problem. Always. Well this week we also had two baptisms. One was a little blessing from the Lord a little kid that hadnt been baptized and the others name is José. He is 24 and super nice. He is really socially awkward but is loving the church and always saying thank you that we knocked on his door. We are going to baptize his mom too in a little bit. I also confirmed the Holy Ghost for the first time to the little kid (michael) I didnt think anything of it at the time then like 10 min later i realized what i had done and was just thinking how cool that was. This week we are going to have a wedding and a baptisms of a family on sat so that should be great. Well it was a better week, always better with baptisms right? Still definitely ready for transfers though. Love you all so much and thank you for your prayers! love reg
