February 2, 2015

Whats up everybody from Oakley California!!

This new area is great! Completely opposite from San Francisco. Everybody owns a car. The people here are more conservative. There is space between between the houses. the roads are wider, the buildings shorter, and the people don't spit at you when you try to talk about God :) lol It's great.

And my companion is awesome! Elder Mahe from Tonga is a beast. He's a professional rugby player. (first companion that could beat me up ;) haha) His catch phrase is - "you're never going to know, unless you try it". 
Haha ...this phrase is awesome, because I think that;'s the central message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You never know unless you try it. I love when people try to fight with us, because all we have to say is - you never know, unless you try it.

You will never know if God is there unless you believe in Him, and pray. You will never know if the Gospel can help you, unless you believe in it, and try it out for yourself. 

I hope everyone has a great week!!

Elder Allison
