Well this was a week full of miracles!
Tuesday was Mary Ann’s birthday and she asked us to come read the Book of Mormon with her in the morning to start it off right! (Here’s a little back story: she’s been a member of the church for 3 years and everyone has been trying so hard to help her get worthy to be able to go to the temple but nothing has really seemed to motivate her to do it. The bishop has been trying so hard for so long.) She told us how she was doing sooo much family history all weekend and feels so much urgency to get worthy to go to the temple so that she can go get all these people’s work done! It’s crazy because nothing has motivated her in the past and the spirit of Elijah is so real and it’s hit her hard and now she’s doing everything she can to be able to get there!
We’ve worked with Linda a lot this week and she continues to amaze me! Tuesday we had a lesson with her. At church on Sunday she overheard someone talking about eternal marriage and asked us about it. We told her about it and she showed sooo much interest in it because her first husband passed away 7 years ago and she loved him so much and her current husband is really terrible to her, so she wants more than anything to be with her first husband again. We went on with teaching the lesson and she didn’t say much until she just stopped and said, "Sisters, I’ve decided I want to go through with becoming a Mormon. How do we go forward?" Man it was sooooo cool! We taught her a few other times this week and she is so solid and doing so well!
Friday we had a really cool multi-zone conference with Elder Craig C. Christensen of the Presidency of the Seventy. He mostly talked about the Spirit and he put it in such a cool perspective that I’ve never heard of or thought about before. One of the things I loved that he talked about is the the Spirit loves us! He is a member of the Godhead and he loves us soooo much just like the other members of the Godhead. How cool is that?! We are SO loved.
Have a blessed week!
All my love,
