Sure do love this little Sister of ours!!!
Love to all!!!
Have a FANTASTIC Day!!!!
This week has been kind of frustrating/hard. And from that I've learned a lot about myself and about the Lord. He knows us so well! He knows us individually. He loves us. He knows what we can handle. As we put our trust in the Lord and fully submit our will to His and do what He wants us to do... He will take care of us. He knows what's best for us! I can say that I know why I'm out here on a mission and it's not for me, it's not for my family, it's not for my friends, it's not even for the Lord; it IS for that stranger that is standing on the street corner, or in the line at the grocery store, or just going for a walk. It's for my brothers and sisters to hear the gospel.
We had a miracle happen just yesterday. We were meeting with a girl that said that she couldn't meet with us for the last week because she'd been sick. We got into the lesson and started teaching her the Restoration. I recited the account that Joseph Smith gave of the first vision. After I was done she said, "That's beautiful." At that point we asked her if she would be baptized. (This was our first lesson with her) She said yes. We asked her if she would prepare to be baptized on December 14th. She said yes. After this horrible week, all it took was one lesson for the spirit to testify of truth to, not only her, but every single person in that room! This is the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. He is at it's head. The person that knows EVERY SINGLE PERSON on this earth is at the head of this church. I know that for a fact!
We continued on the day and went to FHE on a spiritual high from how strong the spirit was in that meeting, and began talking to one of our returning less actives. He told us that he'd been talking with his boss and that he was trying to get Sunday mornings off so he could come to church! HE IS SO HAPPY! It's annoying to him that he can't hide his emotions because the light in his eyes is so radiant! That's what this gospel does! It brings you closer to God and allows that light to shine through! Each day you grow closer to God, you come closer to what your full potential is.
You are a child of God! You have divine potential to become like your father in heaven! Of all the names the creator of the universe has, He asks us to call Him 'Father'.
He knows us. He loves us. Just like President Uchtdorf says, "Doubt your doubt before you doubt your faith."
Love you all!
