The Prophecy Came True :)

dear family and friends
this week has gone by so fast.. on Tuesday we did service and so we helped this family who was in need get furniture,  and also other stuff and we did that with brother and sister king who are awesome members here and so willing to help anyone.then we found out elder Twede was getting transferred so he packed while I cleaned and then we went to Omaha to drop Elder Twede off, and pick up my new companion, Elder Winward
 it is awesome because 2 things: 1. we were in the same distict in the MTC and 2. in the MTC we guessed that we would eventually be companions, when we got out in the field.
and we where right! then we got a new car and it is a brown 2017 Toyota Corrola and it is nice. then we went to 2 small towns in are area and   
they were called vergina and filley and there were not too many people that liked us, but it was a lot of fun and then on Saturday we went out to Tecumseh and we had some fun going out with one of the  priest's in our branch, Logan and then we ate at their  house and it was good. then we had a great time at church and I am so excited because we have more miles to use in our car so all the members want us going over to their  friends so we are really excited and then today, president gardner sent me this quote and it is so true and i hope you like it

"The things we learn from the Book of Mormon prophets are not just interesting episodes. The doctrine they taught, the examples they set, the challenges they overcame and the testimonies they have born were included in the record for you and for me as guidance in our latter day labors as the Lords servants." Elder David A. Bednar

and so that is what i have been trying to do in my studies this week and so i ask you all to do this when you read ask your self. how can i use/apply  this in my life? and it will change your life and how you look at the scriptures
well I love you all
have a great week
love elder Brewster

AttachmentsAug 7 (1 day ago)
dear family and friends,
 so this week not a ton happened here.I can tell you the apostle is  President Russel M Nelson. and the whole mission is so excited to meet him and also get to learn from him for 2 hours and get a picture with him so it is so exciting. and that is going to happen all on the 19th of august so 12 days away. it is so cool and scary.

This week we went all the way to deshler and had a lesson with a less active member and her nonmember daughter and we had dinner with them and a really cool family in are branch, the baileys. and then we went up to Lincoln this week and went on exchanges and it was alot  of fun it is always fun to be around other elders and to learn form them. and then so we had a dinner planed with Michelle (the lady from last week) but she got really busy this week so we are probablly going to see her next week. we have  a new investigator her name is ashley and she is super nice and she really likes the restoration. and then we went on a team up with one of our priest here and he is a funny kid who wants to go on a mission so we are excited to work with him well
that was our week 

and so this week are transfers,  so Iwill tell you what happens next week. 

i love you all and just know that God loves you and will always guide and help you

Have Faith and be ALL IN :)

dear family and friends
so this week was tons of fun. to start off, I am going to give you our  miracle that I told president this week here it is:

we had a really cool experience.we have been praying for a miracle this week and so we decided  to go to south side of town and so Elder Twede was prompted to go to this one house that has a pretty big drive way.   and so we see this 14 year old kid out side and we ask if his parents are there and he said his mom was inside in the bathroom. we said we would come back later and so we start walking up the drive way when the mom (Michelle) comes out and says "are you the Mormons "and we said yes.   she has been going though a really hard time she just lost her husband in a lawn mowing accident about 2 months  ago and her father passed away a year ago and she said she wants to talk to us for alittle bit.   she told us that story and asked if we could pray with her, extacly  where her husband passsed away and so we did and she really liked it. we were going to teach her the plan of salvation but she said she was alittle drunk and wanted us to come a back another time.   so we are going over there on Thursday and she was so thankful for us coming over because she has 2 uncles that live in Utah and one of them is a bishop and so it was so amazing to see us planning by the spirit and following  promptings of the Lord

so that happened last night and it was so amazing, but also this week we helped a less active family move and we got really close really fast it was just crazy and sad. this week we went on exchanges with the zone leaders and we had a lot of fun and also we went to this small town call pickrell and we were going around finding and this little girl just keep following us everywhere it was so funny, and then one of our investigators went cazy and started yelling at this guy who was walking down the street and then we found out he was drunk so we left.and he really wants us to help him stop drinking.   so ya it was good crazy week I hope you all have a great week 

I love you all

love elder Brewster

Pictures from this week!!










Have Faith and Be All In

Dear family and friends

This week has been great so this week we had interviews with President Gardner, and that went well.  Then we had exchanges with our district leader and that was so much fun.  We  got to go to this awesome burger place called Honest abes and it was really good.This week we wanted  to find 5 new investigators and on Thursday night we had 1 new investigator and it didn't look like we were going to make our goal,  but then we kept  working and really giving real intent in our work, and trying our best to "be all in" and then on Friday we found 1 new investigator Heather and then we found 2 on sarturday Teresa and ross(Heather's husband ) and then on Sunday we didn't have much time to go out because we had ward counsel (that actually didn't happen wihich was funny and weird) and then we went out to find people,  and one of the last doors we knocked on, the people let us in and we got an return appointment  for this week so we reached our goal and that was so awesome. Really when we have  faith in God and we set a goal and pray for it, and give it your all, Heavenly Father  with bless you and and you will get  there.  Just keep going, even when the odds are not in your favor.   If  you keep on giving it your all, the Lord will make it happen in the best way he can

so I hope you liked that story!! I hope you all have a great week. I love you all so much

Dear Family and Friends

Bugs, Zone Conference and Awesome T-shirts!!(6/12/17)

Dear family and friends, 

This  week was a lot of fun. This week the bugs came out and I got like 40 bug bites all over me and that was fun! This week we had zone conference and it was so good.  We talked about planing for our investigators and how we can apply it to ourselves and how we can keep becoming better. We  talked about it in Heavenly father's shoes and that was awesome to see how the plan of salvation is so simple and how it helps us know what we need to do to come closer to are Heavenly Father! and that was a great day we also played soft ball and that was so much fun! and then this week we saw mike vanderbeek and he is one of our eternal investigators. We did have a break through this week and we are going to keep teaching him because he is starting to change.This is so amazing well I love you guys have a great week. 

love,
Elder Brewster

Dear family and friends

This week has gone by so fast, not much has happened here. we did service and had exchanges and I got to go to Vermillion with elder Osborn and we found this family and had an amazing lesson with them and they are so ready to be baptized, it so amazing that was so much fun.I love being a missionary it just makes me so happy! 

 This week at church during 3rd hour we read and talked about the living Christ and that was so amazing all the knowledge we get from one piece of paper and we know all of these thing throgh revelation from God and that is a wonderful gift we have on this earth.  It is so amazing how we can learn more and more about him everyday by reading the book of mormon and I am so grateful for this record of scriputure well I love you all so much.  I will write you again next week if you have any questions just ask and I will respond!
