4 January 2016 - Topeka - Colly Creek Ward

Greetings from Topeka! How was everyone's New Year's? So, this week was a flourish of events, but, still a week of miracles!

On Thursday, I got transferred to Topeka to be with Elder Mitchell! I'm definitely going to miss la Ramita de Kellogg, but I already love Top City so much! We've seen so many miracles!

We're teaching Kristy and Daniel, a mother and son, who have been hit with some pretty big trials in their lives right now. They've decided that they need to put God first in their lives. As they've done so,they've talked about how much happier they've felt and how much more peace that has been brought into their lives. It's definitely
still not easy, but it's more bearable. New year. New start. Seeing Kristy and Daniel's situation reminds me of Alma and his people from the Book of Mormon. Mosiah 24:15 says, "And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord." I definitely know the Lord has a plan and as we submit cheerfully to His will, with patience, our burdens will
be bearable and a new light will fill our lives.

Another week with not a ton of time, but I love you guys! And I hope you have an amazing week! Gracias por todo!

Con amor,
Elder Murphy
