So i am sorry for not writing last week, I just kind of ran out of time, because our preparation day got moved, and it was just a little crazy!!!
So thing last week was a really good week!!!
So on Thursday we had just an awesome day!!! We found a family of 5 that we started teaching. We contacted the dad the week before, and then went back, and they actually accepted us. It was really cool!!!
The lesson that we had with them was really awesome!! We taught the restoration, and the spirit was so strong. They had a lot of questions, and were really interested. We have another lesson with them tomorrow. There is not much more about them that we have learned, or that I have to say. We have only taught them once, but I will keep you posted!!!
So this week was kind of short with the whole weird schedule, and we had Stake conference this week. In the stake conference we, as missionaries sang in the choir. It was fun, but not much preparation was able to be done. We are missionaries, and kind of have crazy schedules!!!
But for not having much to talk about, I am going to take the time and share my testimony with you all, and just a little bit of the reason that I have truly decided that I am on the mission.
So to start out, I know that My Father in Heaven exists, and not only exists, but had a body of skin and bones. I know that he knows every single one of us individually, and loves us more that we can possibly imagine!!! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. Not just mine, not just those who are members of the church, But of every single one of us!!! He has given us the ability and chance to change. He loves us, and gave his life so that we can have ours. I know that God gives us trials, and allows us to fall. It doesn't matter in what you fall into, he knows that it was, or is going to happen. But because he loves us so much has given us the way to make it through anything!!! All though at times it seems that we are too far into a sin, or a way of thinking... YOU ARE NOT!!!! It is never to late to repent, and become clean from the wrongs in which you have done. I have a testimony of the cleansing, and healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He is our only way through this life. He did not suffer to make it easy for us, but he suffered to make it possible for us. The only thing that he ask is a broken heart, and a contrite Spirit.
I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God!! I have read it, and without a doubt in my mind know that Joseph Smith translated it. I know that Joseph Smith saw God in that Grove in the spring of 1820. I know that we also can receive answers to our prayers. I know that if we ask and pray in faith that we will receive answers. They might not always be what we want to hear, but It is exactly what we need, and WE have to be the ones to change. God only has our best interest in mind, and will never do anything to hurt us!!! I know that God lives, and loves us.
And this I share with all of you, humbly and with much love.
In the name of Jesus Christ.
I love you all. I pray for all of you, and know that you do the same for me!!!
Thank you for all you do, and all your support!!
