April 10, 2017

It can be a little heart-wrenching when you are planning to have 7 investigators at church on Sunday and you end up only have one... Haha :) We are SO happy about our investigator Cody coming to church but it would be nice to see everyone come to church that commits to! Next week should be much better because most of the reasons that our investigators didn't come this week was because they were sick or they accidentally slept in. So Elder Garrett and I are super pumped next weekend! 

Other than that our week has been pretty good! We had a really rewarding experience this week for me at least. We are teaching the new member lessons to our most recent convert Sister Russell and we ended up talking about missionary work. She was telling us all the people she wants to share the gospel with and it was just a huge blessing to see a new convert's desire to share the thing that has brought her so much joy! Being a missionary is such an amazing blessing oh my goodness, I dont want to be anywhere else but serving my Heavenly Father and helping His children find happiness. Sister Russell even cooked dinner for us yesterday! So awesome!! That family is just the best :) Right now we are working on helping her husband get baptized, he was the one at church this week and we are hoping that he will desire to be baptized soon!

This week we have been running into lots of people who either were formerly taught by missionaries or used to active in the church but are no longer coming. Its been a while since missionaries have visited them and we are hoping and praying that their hearts have softened and they are willing to make sufficient changes to be able to experience all the blessings of the gospel! Everyday I am amazed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the Savior, we all are able to make something of our lives that we couldn't before. Truly our Heavenly Father's eternal love for us is manifest in the opportunity we have to be freed from the burden and guilt of sin and return to live with Him again!! I know this work is true and I love it so much! As always, I hope everyone has a wonderful week!! :)
