September 29, 2014

this week was a very trying week for me with missing home and not feeling appreciated but its been great at the same time learning the little lessons that i need to learn yes there are people out there that are better than me in alot of things expecally studying but one thing is for sure is that although i may not have a nac for books and things i do have a nac for fixing things and with the spirit i can fix more than the stove that was not properly put together one of the electrical wires was not connected properly therefor causing it to not always work our lives are the same we sin and fall short of the glory of god and as we do that we dont sceem to work all the time! diagnostics! is the key to fixing the problems in our lives!!! sadly we cant just plug a computer into us and have it tell us whats wrong with us but we have to figure it out on our own and have someone that is more experienced help us overcome our challenges! i truly do love this gospel! i am so thankful to have been raised in a great loving family! no we are not perfect but the lord knows us best and has placed us in famlies that will help us the most!!!!! i truly do love you all even though i may not show it all that much i am truly greatful for all that you have done for me! i Love you ALL and i hope you haze a great week!!!

this week we decided to take the long way around the town and it turns out that we went the really long way around the town of penal and on the outside of town we found a 2000 ford f 350 the guy that owns it lived in the states and shipped it down and he hardly ever drives it because the roads are to small down here lol so its only got 40000 miles on it! of coarse i had to take a picture if it and me lol then after that the lord truly works with our weaknesses because after that i was a lot happier and then we saw a less active family mother and two kids struggling with life and helped them be happy and love one another! it was awesome i surly do love this gospel!

 later we were able to go to choir practice and the spirit was so strong and on Saturday we are hosting a sports activity and we have found a kid named Moses and we talked to his mother and sister they seem really cool! we have not been able to meet with them as yet but we will soon! probably tomorrow ill let ya know how everything is going! one thing i learned is that we as human beings tend to abuse and blame our self's and it gets us down but the savior taught us that yes we do make mistakes but if we trust in the lord and ask him to forgive us that sorrow that we experience miraculously turns into happiness and determination! to do the lords work!
then just yesterday we were at one of our members houses and there was an investigator there who has been taught by missionaries before in tobago and she wants to get baptized in october! im supper excited for her and for that whole family! missionary work is so much fun! im so happy to be able to be a part of the work of salvation. yes it does make my hands weak and other things but Yes it makes my mind grow and understand the gospel better that i ever could at home! expecally the spirit! sadly i flip threw my preach my gospel and i dont see many notes but that mearly because when i make notes i never use them so i dont see the point but when i memorize something then it comes to life! i cant tell you how many times i have used the first page of enos to teach about almost every subject of the gospel! its great! I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON! i know i am not perfect but i also know that the lord loves me and i love him! even thought i dont show it as best as other people do i truly do love this gospel and even threw the tears that it takes me to study it is worth it! there is no feeling better than being frusterated beyond your frusteration point and then all a sudden the spirit comes rushing in and things just click! if it takes pushing me to that point every morning then it is totally worth it!!! i still hate studying but its totally worth it! i would much rather think about the trucks and the river that think about the Isiah chapters! but there is so much knowledge in them! we dont need to focus we need to learn! having add has opened my mind yes it is terrably frusterating yesterday at church i forgot my companions name! lol but thats not truly what matters what matters is that i learn! yes itas alot slower than other people but once i get it its smooth sailin from there now i just need to get missionary work lol 16 weeks i can do it! 
My companion Elder Cox is from alaska and he is joining the airforce when he gets home so we are going to start working out its going to be rough but it will be worth it!
i bear my testamony that i know that god lives and he loves us and jesus is the christ and that thomas s. monson is the prophet of the lord with love Elder Jed Hazlett

haha that sounds like it was a blast on hells revenge! yes me and lily and libby learned to not go on slick rock in the snow! the rzr is really quite safe but because of the suspension it feels like you will tip out! and also its open its alot of fun! im supper stoked to be able to go out on trails with all of us! the bishop in san-fernando is from idaho and he told me that polaris came out with a 1000 and it has a different drive system! its fun! anyways the branch Presidents daughter was recently diagnosed with adhd and so as im sure you know they wanted to ask a few questions!  there awesome i love that family loads!!! they will probably call you another time! people here dont know what a rzr is could you send a picture of it so i can explain and use it in a lesson or two! :) that would be great! people love to see that were more that just robots but that were alot of fun on a mission serving the lord! i truly do love this gospel and i am so thankful to be able to serve the lord.


This week was Zone conference and with Elder Zivic of the 70 and his wife came and it was a great learning oppurtunity! i have felt the spirit so much and i am so greatfull for the oppurtunity to be here and serve the lord and to learn the lessons that we need to learn! 


Just the other day we saw a few guys shoveling some Dirt one of my favorit things to do! haha and i grabed a shovel and started to help them and i got tired on that side and desided to switch to my weaker arm only to realize that i was useing my left hand and it feels as normal eather way i hold it! haha strange how that works! also i am getting alot better at reading music somehow i only play a couple times a week for choir and sometimes at church! its a great blessing to be here and to be on a mission the skills that i have learned on my mission i would have never done at home! sadly i am still learning to study that one will take me a long time! but its gettin there! i love the oppurtunity that we have every morning to study the scriptures and to be able to have the spirit with us all the time! I truly do know that the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints is the lords true church and i truly do want to share it with everyone that i possable can! even if they reject the message which happens alot! lazy people tend to make fun of people that work hard! its pretty funny to see how many people will say something when we are walking fast lol any ways i know that the lord loves each and every one of us and i love you all Love Elder Hazlett

i cannot wait untill we have all 4 of the hazlett boys on the river and golfing! its so true how much the river relates to our lives but teaching it to someone who thinks a river is the same as a gutter its a bit challenging! lol so sadly i cant use that one to much here i have been trying to find other ways to teach people about the restored gospel! and one thing that i have found with having add is that i can relate anything to anything! the other day my companion and i were about to teach a lesson to a less active member and her family and as usual we didnt have a solid plan on what to teach! and i said a prayer and asked heavenly father to help me teach so the kids could understand! and i looked to my left and i saw a yellow ball close by! and i used that as an object lesson! it was great! i have always known that i have add for a reason yes it is hard! alot of the missionaries when they ask others about me they say that i have a hard time paying attention aka we would be teaching a lesson and alla sudden i would ask if a nearby tree is a mango tree! hahaha i only did that once but the missinary thought it was so funny! its truly great being here in this wonderful are i have really been trying to work with the members as much as possable and i am deffinatly seeing a great spirit come into there lives! its truly great to see the gospel fire light up someones day! I Love This gospel! another Experience we had with member missionary worjk was that our branch Presidents wife gacve us a refearl to this lady named linda and so we taught her and she teaches special ed classes and i was able to bond with her really well! it was a great lesson! the spirit was so strong! blessings are flowing!!! in trinidad! its great! we are still struggling with our investigators comming to church! but that will come with the members help! i am so excited to watch this branch grow! it is truly a great blessing i have to work with the people here i love it! now sorry i am getting frusterated with the computer so ill have to say love you and look forward to hearing from you next week With Love Elder Hazlett
