I LOVE hearing of all of these missionary calls, Alot leave soon, july right?? and all of these waiting for their calls. AHH IT MAKES ME SO EXCITED!!!!!
I LOVE YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!!
HERE IS THE AMAZING WEEK I HAVE HAD!!...HERE WE GO....
SO last week i was studying on the topic of SERVICE! and i absolutely love mosiah 5:13 which explains how we cannot come to know of our God until we have served him. And it is so true! Service brings us closer to Christ and our heavenly father. And my little quote for last week was/ `is there ANY way i can help this person?`...whenever i got onto a train or a bus or saw people on the street i would ask myself that!! and alot of the time i helped them by sharing the beautiful message of the restored gospel.- but i found myself helping in alot of smaller ways also. Like if someone was running for the bus....and was going to miss it...i pressed the button to keep the door open. And if i was looking or searching for a way to serve someone then i may of missed that opportunity. There are always ways we can serve simply everyday!!
I was reading through some of my letters, and a postcard from grandma and grandad. had this quote on it: `Dont keep the faith GIVE it away!!` and i feel as we give away the faith we have through our actions, words and examples we are more likely to strengthen the faith we do have.
Oh and i FOUND A BAG!! (As mine broke) woohooo!! but you would of all laughed!! I got it from a market in Lausanne. ITS NICE DONT WORRY!! But its a market where you have to bargain!! and normally i would be ok...BUT IN FRENCH HAHAH it was awful!!!! It made me think if only dad was here. haha!!!! The lady was sneaky... "`oooo i love english"` "you are so pretty"` etc etc!!!! I fell in too quickly!! But its ok i have a bag and it wasnt TOOOO expensive.....haha!! Cut me some slack ok...FRENCH LANGUAGE!!!!! anyway...
We have such an amazing ami!!!! And this week we had the most incredible lesson i had ever been in. And it was nothing we said. But the spirit. we asked him `have you prayed to know the book of Mormon is true?` and he said he had, but had not recieved an answer.... then we said `ok what are you feeling right now?` (because we knew the spirit was so strong) and he said ` i feel really good. and i feel like everything you are telling me is real. and i have the desire to read more, everytime you speak i feel something...` we explained to him that, that was his answer. That was the holy ghost!! He started to cry and now is preparing to be baptised on July the 7th!!!!
OK I HAVE TO SHARE THIS....
Our ami, she only speaks spainish. So sister Camus teaches her. But in our lesson this week. I had a very special experience with her. As i was sitting there listening to the lesson. I looked at her. and i saw her dressed in white, at the temple and she was so happy!! I have never had that before but i saw it!! AND IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I know that she will reach the temple and be sealed with her family, and she is now preparing for baptism too. I dont know if she will be dressed in white while on my mission, in 20 years time or in the next. But i know that she will. I saw it!!!!! It was such an amazing thing, i had to share it with you!!
Also on our mission CD!!! DAd this one is for you!! there is a song called `come back home` and IT SOUNDS JUST LIKE YOU AND DAVID SINGING!! it was so weird!! but it sounded SO familiar...have you or david sang that before?????
We had a ward BBQ on Thursday! which was great fun!! Two of our investigators came and absolutely loved it!! It was so great, because all the members made them feel so welcome and really just loved them!! When missionaries bring investigators to church make sure you love them!! seriously its something i didnt truly do before my mission and it is so important for them to feel welcomed and loved!! :)
Ok so on Friday. The coldest day i have ever experienced!!! The weather changes SO much here. one day it is 30 degrees and then absolutely freezing!! its so weird....anyway.. it was SO COLD, and raining and windy!! and we really needed a miracle...people were not wanting to talk because of the weather. We prayed and the next person we spoke to....has become a new ami!! Heavenly father answers prayers.
Prayer has been a topic this week actually! I know that heavenly father uses other people to answer our prayers. Something sister wilsher said in a companionship study this week answered my prayer! Heavenly father uses US to answer other peoples prayers. Be ready to be an instrument in the Lords hands¨!! And we taught about Prayer in the gospel principles class on Sunday and I HAve to share with you an experience a member shared. His name is *Fr and he said in Africa, he was told he needed to have surgery, and the doctors told him how much it would cost, and Frank knew he needed to have this surgery, but he just did not have the money, so he decided to pray right there, as he was praying his phone called and he picked up. It was a company who has owed him alot of money for a long time, and he hasnt heard from them, they were calling to say his check was ready for him!!!!!!!!!! It brought us to tears as he shared this story! But what an incredible witness that heavenly father does answer our prayers!!
HAVE YOU WATCHED ELDER BEDNAR...FACE2FACE conference??? in one of our lunch hours we watched it!! It is incredible!!
a few things i loved:
.- ``we will always look back at the difficult times in our life and realise HEAVEN was in charge..``
-``beauty is as beauty does``
-``This life is hard, every generation has its tasks....i dont think this generation could of pulled hand carts...i dont think this generation could live through WW2, This is the greatest season in the history of the restored church and we get to live in it!!``
I want to share my testimony. My testimony grows ever single day. I know that i have a heavenly father who loves me. He loves me enough to help me grow and stretch to reach my full potential. He gave his son to the world. Thats how much he loves us. He wants us back with him,.that is what he wants. And that is my goal. To return worthy to stand with my heavenly father, as a family together forever. There is nothing i want more. I know the book of mormon is the word of God. I cannot deny it. I know. I need you to know how important it truly is to turn to your father, when you have questions, fears or when you feel alone. He will comfort you, answers any question you may have and help you conquer all of your fears. I know he can do that because he has done that for me.
I love you all so sooo much. I love hearing how happy you all are. Never ever be unhappy! There is ALWAYS something to be happy about!! YOU MAKE ME HAPPY!!!!! DONT STOP WHAT YOUR DOING!!
I LOVE YOU!!
Have an incredible week as always!! and i promise there will be pictures next week!!! haha!! Im failing i know...im sorry!!
LOVE YOUR ONE AND ONLY..
