May 19, 2014 - Cloudy with a chance of...........HAPPINESS!

Dear Peeps in da crib!

Hey how we doing?  Hope all y'all are livin' the dream cuz you better believe, I AM!  We do it big out here so I don't know if y'all can handle it!  LOL!  Elder Pabla and I have been working really hard.  It's so fulfilling to have people come to church and see how the Gospel is blessing and strengthening them every day.  Liz is still the most prepared person I have ever met.  She is getting baptized this coming Sunday which will be an awesome experience!  As a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, there is not a better and more amazing feeling than seeing someone enter into the waters of baptism and completely start their life over.  I can't even describe how much it has blessed my life to be able to be an instrument in the Lord's hands and help God's Children begin their trek home.
Jersey has just been beautiful this past week.  It wasn't excruciatingly hot or unbearably cold.  It was perfect!  On Friday night Elder Pabla and I were out contacting people and we contacted this guy named David.  the whole time we were talking to him, it was softly raining.  By the time we finished and got his information, it began to pour, all over Jersey City.  While we were walking back in the rain, I couldn't help but feel so incredibly happy.  We got to a street corner and I looked up to God and just yelled "I LOVE THIS!!!!!"  The overwhelming feeling finally just burst and I felt so incredibly happy to have had the opportunity to prove to God almighty that I loved what I was doing and nothing was gonna stop me.  I cannot even express to anyone how much I love being here and sharing the Gospel with ALL OF HIS CHILDREN.  Yes, it's really hard sometimes.  Yes, we get frustrated sometimes but, I would not trade one second of this experience for anything in this entire world.  Every hour, every minute, every second has changed eternity for me.  I will never be the same!
I love all of you so much!  I am grateful to be able to always and forever be a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God.

Keep it Fresh
Elder Rodeback
