The Power of the Priesthood

Dear Family and Friends,

This was a great week! We had one of the greatest dinner appointments ever with the McBride Family. We taught a really good lesson about the Book of Mormon and committed them to give away a Book of Mormon and their 7 year old daughter Mylee shot up and declared, "I want to go give it to our neighbors right now!" We grabbed a Book of Mormon and had her write her testimony in it and mark her favorite scripture. Then we role played with them before we went over. It was a total success and we went over, they gladly accepted it and the McBrides invited them over to have smores. It was such a great experience to see a family doing missionary work, and Mylee was such a great example to her family and us of declaring the gospel with excitement!

We also found a new investigator this week named Maffany. He is from Cameroon, Africa and has a very sweet and gentle spirit. When we were in his home the spirit was abundantly there. He is seeking for peace in these turbulent times, and I know he will be able to find it. As he listens to the spirit with an open heart and mind he will come to know these are true.

We were also able to pick up an investigator that dropped us last week. She had the resolve to stay stuck in the situation she was in. Then she called us yesterday and said she needed us to come over stat. We hurried over and brought the Elders with us because she had said she needed a priesthood blessing. After she received the blessing she told us she wanted to start the lessons again and to be baptized as soon as possible. It was such a mighty miracle. I'm so grateful for the Priesthood  and that I live in a time where the fullness of God's power has been restored to the Earth. I love you all!

 Awesome Car at the Library
 The Bed and Breakfast we helped garden at this week. I love this place--it is who I am in a house.
 Don't freak out Mom--it is just the leprosy running its course!
 Everyone in North Dakota has personalized license plates.
 We had a mishap with our car so the Elders fixed it with duct tape. How many Elders does it take to fix a car?
