So! We have been working like CRAZY this week!
Seriously, we are so excited and everything is going well.
Preach My Gospel phrase of the day: (chapter 11)
Later in the week we had a recent convert with me, P...( we went on splits). He is on fire! We went to visit a sister who had been investigating our church for a long time. When we got there, we said a prayer and for some reason, she started to tell us that she didn't want to listen any more. That she was ok where she was, and that she didn't need anything more in life. In a moment of silence, P... decided to speak. As he spoke of his conversion, of how he had changed as the head of the family, and how his FAMILY had changed. Then something happened, that sister, M... changed, she listened. After awhile, we read some scriptures that testified of the same thing. Sister M... changed. She said, "You know what, I have to read this book. REALLY read it and KNOW if it is true or not." She decided to have us visit the next week. And her prayer, of asking if it was true or not, was beautiful and you could feel the Spirit TESTIFYING.
Lastly, we were with another M...there are quite a few here:) Her husband is sick and in the hospital-- he isn't doing well. We went to visit with a brother, S.... He and his family had had similiar problems a while ago. As he testified and share how the Gospel had helped him, Sister M... started crying. She KNEW that the Lord was aware of what was going on, and she knew that there was hope. It was so exciting to see.
I know, this might not be a crazy letter, but it is something I saw, and I loved:) My testimony has changed a little this week. A quote I love, "Preach the gospel, and when necessary, use words."
Testimony is not just what we say things, not just stories. It is part of us:) It is our spiritual motor. And I have had to pay a little more attention to the care I am giving mine lately.
I love you so much and I KNOW that we can be together forever. I know it, because I have asked, and because the Lord has responded. I KNOW my Savior lives and I want to represent him at all times!
I love you guys so much! Have a great week and preach at all times:)
