"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
"Come unto Christ and be perfected in him and deny yourselves of all ungodliness."
Wow what a wonderful miracle filled
week. I'm so grateful to be on my mission. Everyday I'm grateful to be a
missionary. Ok which miracle can I start with? Let's go to this Saturday
when we had a Ward blitz. Just for some information! A blitz in mission terms
refers to missionaries and members of the church grouping together and then
going out for an hour or two and doing missionary work hard core, or in other
words preaching the gospel with much power and authority. Sister Hernandez and two
other sister missionaries, Sister Blanchard from Spanish work, and Sister Thawinpwrat
from Chinese work, and I all drove out to find those poor and unfortunate souls
who knew not God. And did we find them? Indeed we did. The first apartment
complex was gated BUT as we drove in and a car was going in the same time so we
got in and talked to a ton of Chinese people and Sister T did her thing!
Then we went to go see our old
investigator Daniel! Sister Z and I taught him a while ago and we invited him
to our activity in March. He is still good ol’ Daniel but he is trying to
improve :)After that we went to another
apartment complex that was also gated, so tactful Sister Hernandez parked the
car on the side, waited for a car to pull in and then she parked the car and we
found Matthew! It was the fourth floor, third door (referring to Elder Utchdorf’s 4th Floor Last
Door Conference talk Oct. 2016 Women’s session) but it was close ;) He told us to come back the next day and we
could teach him and his brother as well. We did. They said they both wanted to
follow Christ more fully and be baptized. We are so grateful to have found a
family who has and shows real intent finally! Their names are Matthew and Marc
so now we just need a Luke and John :) lol.... anyways. I have a testimony of
every little effort that we extend in the work of the Lord; whether it's a
smile or an act of service, a wave hello, or opening the door for someone, it
leads to so much more.
Thanks for all your love and support
Remember who you are. Remember who
those around you are.
