A desire to share...

MOM!! LOOKY THERE!  I AM WRITING.  I KNOW.... I am so sorry I haven't been able to write:/  But I hope you can forgive me :)
So....I will be answering questions first.

1. How are you? 
SUPER FANTASTICALLY DOODLY DUPER.  You know basically about the exciting stuff, but other than that, we have been working hard!  There have been lots of miracles and wonderful experiences, and LOTS OF CHANGES:)
2. How was your week? 
Great, my companion and I are working hard to strengthen our crazy children.  It has been awesome.  I will try and explain it....this week, we have been able to talk a lot about TESTIMONY.  There is something special about being able to bear Testimony every day of what we do.  I hope you know...after a year and some months (we won't say how many) I guessed I would have had everything figured out, or maybe thought I be "in a little rut"-- but not even close.  This work is wonderful and there are ALWAYS things you can do better. Always a better testimony.  Always a better way of teaching.  Always a better representative of Jesus Christ.  Always. Always. Always. hahahahaha!  And that is what I love:)  We have been working on that.  On how to become better.  It has been wonderful.
3. How are you feeling?  

Ok.... So this week, just real fast.  We went on divisions, and we were trying to find new people to teach.  I'm pretty sure the members are too used to all the Elders always asking, "Is there someone you know that would be willing to hear our message?" And so we have had to change it up.  We went looking, praying, and with faith to find some people that were ready to hear the Gospel.  We started out walking to a visit, when we had the impression to stop by one of our recent converts house, his name is J....  With him, we talked a little bit and as we explained that we felt we needed to visit him, and that he knew of someone that needed this message, he started thinking, "Visit my friend F...."  He needs help.
So we went.  When we got there, we told F.... what was going on.  We went into his home, shared a little of our message, and asked him if there was someone else he knew we could help.   OF COURSE THERE WAS:)  And we just kept doing that same thing.  These people all knew someone else who needed the Gospel.  And it wasn't to baptize, it was to help them know exactly what their Father wanted for them.  That vision of white in the baptism, white in the temple, and white in the Celestial Kingdom.  It was a special experience, and it all started with ONE person.  He decided to share, and that lead to about 25 people.  That is a difference.  He made a difference in the lives of 25 people that day, just for taking a few minutes to think of someone who needed the Gospel.  Who needed more love!
I am so happy to see that. To be an instrument for the Lord, (definitely not perfect, but an instrument none the less), of the person most powerful, and most loving in the whole universe! And I will NEVER get tired, of wanting others to hear it:)
I hope you guys have a great week, sorry I can't write very quick, but I love you all tons.
Elder Goodman!
