A Week to Remember

February 19, 2014
Elder Clark at The Gilbert Arizona Temple
New Companion
 What an amazing week. Full of events and miracles! I don’t even know where to begin. Transfer news! I am still here in Ft. Apache! Elder Russell went down to the valley. I am now companions with Elder Blankenship! He has been here for 2 transfers. But, now he is my companion! We got 3 new missionaries too so now we have 8 elders here and 2 sisters. There are a lot of us and it is gonna be crazy having 8 of us in that lil house. But, we will make due!

Last week Elder Russell and I had an AMAZING experience. We are working with a non-member family who have never wanted to talk with "The Mormons" for some reason, says the father, he decided to let us in. They have quickly become great friends of ours. A couple weeks ago, the father got thrown off a horse and shattered both his wrists. As we were meeting with him, we talked a lot about the priesthood power and its abilities. He agreed to let us give him a blessing. In the blessing he was told that he would heal much quicker than the doctors anticipated. About a week after, he went in to get his casts. They had to put some metal in his arms then wait for the swelling to go down before the casts could be put on. When he went in they took another X ray and the bones were completely fine. There wasn’t even a trace of fractures or anything in the bones! What a miracle. He now just has ace bandages around his arms for the surgery wounds.  God is real and his power is real. I am so grateful for the ability to be his servant and work in his name!

Ft Apache Branch at The Gilbert Arizona Temple
This Saturday we were able to take two buses down to Gilbert and see the Open House at the temple! It was a branch trip and we have about 110 souls join us! It was very stressful getting it organized and to happen but it was so worth it! It is such a beautiful temple. The members of the branch (most have never been to the upper floors) LOVED it. It was so much fun!

Other big events of this week were: Elder Blankenship and I were able to dress a father of some members for burial. He passed away the other day. We stuffed a passed out drunk into the car of a man on the side of the road. I got sick and stayed up all night... what a week! I am so grateful to be a servant of the almighty and I can’t wait for what lies ahead of me! 

I love you all!!

Elder Clark
