OH YEAH!!!!!!! 1 Year in and one to go!!! I have loved every single second of the past year!!!! Every moment of sadness, pain, heartache, fun, learning has been worth it! Every day that I am out serving my joy and desire to serve seems to grow more and more!!! This week has been a very good week with lots of walking, driving, teaching, and pain.
We have been working with a less active who came to church for the first time in about 12 years!!! we were so excited when she came to church with her husband who is not a member. We will be teaching her husband this coming Saturday atand are very excited. we both felt inspired to(my comp and I) to give her husband a pamphlet from the plan of salvation and told him that that was the message we would be sharing this next Saturday. Sacrament meeting turned out to be perfect! the Speakers talked about our purpose on earth and temple marriage!! The Bishop then got up and testified of the truthfulness of the gospel! 2nd hrs lesson was on the nature of our Heavenly Father, and then Elders quorum was about the leadership in the church and about the priesthood. Church couldn't have turned out better for the returning member and her investigating husband.
We were able to teach Shawn the Word of Wisdom this week! He has not been reading the book of Mormon and I testified to him of the power that the book of Mormon has and promised him that if he were to read it and pray about it not only would he receive an answer about the book of Mormon, but that he would be able to overcome his addiction to coffee. Shawn is really struggling with the coffee right now along with his scripture reading. I once again testified to Monica the returning member that if she were to read the book of Mormon that she would receive the strength to overcome her addiction to coffee and smoking. I love you all!!!! Thank you for your prayers!!!
