Family and Friends,
"In a world ever more dangerous.. The Book of Mormon: Another Testiment of Jesus Christ has the nourishing power to heal starving spirits of the world." President Packer. As sister Love and I read 10 pages from the Book of Mormon, i had seen this in my own life, we may not have a lot to "heal" but it is making a HUGE difference in our relationship with each other and those we teach. I have also seen how the Book of Mormon helps those who are in a time of trial or in need of help in there life. I was talking to Roy this week about what change he has seen in his life since he started reading the Book of Mormon and his response was that his life feels balanced. Simple but so true as we accept our Heavenly Fathers will our life is going to balance out and everything will work out for the good.
This week we have been teaching a lady named Kara and her family, They are wonderful and I love them, There are like 12 people living in this house and it is so much fun to go there. And also we are teaching a 13 year old girl, who is going through a really hard time in her life right now. Oh and a miracle this week is we were able to get Samantha on date for this month! Yay we are so excited. She is the only one we have with a baptism date, but we are working on Kara and Gaby for January.
This week has been a really good one. Of course I cant remember what has happened but I remember it was good, and kind of scary ha, but thank you for the packages, I am loving the 12 days of Christmas, it is so fun to read a letter each day, Today was my favorite to read about John Zwahlen. I never really knew much about my ancestors and I never really felt a connection to them but today as I was reading his conversion story, I did. What a blessing and how grateful I am.
I am so grateful for this opportunity I have to serve a mission, I know that I was prepared for this time in my life. Some days I feel like I could be the Elders Mother, but I know that I needed to come at this time and not when I was 19 or even when I was 21. I love you all and I am so grateful to all of you! I love you and I pray for you.
