March 2, 2015

I love you so much!!! Haha thats so amazing to hear about that in the ward. I really do love being a missionary and my testimony gets stronger each and everyday, I love the Gospel, I know its true and I know that our Heavenly Father loves us soo much! Keep doing what ever you can to help other people know what we know too, even though some people don't see or choose not to see the love He has for us, as members of the church we can always be a channel for them, through our kind acts and service they can feel just a little bit more of that light and love that they are searching!

This was an amazing week, talking about service haha wow. We went and moved more rocks for that family up in the hillside one day but that was nothing compared to the other stuff we did this week. Almost all of my area is mountains and hills so this week we contacted and helped soo many people carry stuff up the mountain sides. We carried up refrigerators, bags of cement, giant bags of flour, huge 6 packs of 3 liter sodas, boxes of canned milk, this one guy had a concrete sink that maybe weighed more than me haha. 80% of our contacting this week was through helping people carry stuff up the mountain sides to their houses and little stores, and it really is something beautiful. Like this guy with his sink, if we weren't there, there wouldn't have been any way possible to get that thing up by himself, just the little miracles to be in the right place in the right time to be able to help people, and then invite them to come unto Christ, what a great combination right? This week we have 2 baptism scheduled, one is a kid named J who we've been working with since January, he is awesome, he's been coming to church, participating in the activities and everything, he has progressed so much and now is stoked to be baptized this week and really make the change in his life. The other is the boy friend of a girl in our Ward,  they have a baby and they have been together for a long time now but finally this week they are getting married! (you cant be baptized if you're living together, you have to get married or split up), but they are getting married this week and then he will be baptized Saturday during the same program as J!
We were teaching him the steps of repentance how you recognized that you have sinned, confess to God, never do it again, and do everything you can to correct it. So we explained that breaking the law of chastity was a sin, but now that he is getting married they are completing the steps of repentance and they are going to be a beautiful family, when we explained that we could feel the spirit so strongly, and its just amazing the things we are able to be a part of. 

I love you all so much, I'm so happy for all of my friends and family and for the life that my Father in Heaven has given me, and now for all of these amazing opportunities to share and help others. Have an amazing week!
