Dear Family and Friends,
Well, this week has been crazy full with appointments, training meetings, and
mail! I received my flight plans in the mail this week and it feels all
too real that I will be returning home in just a few weeks. I had my
final Zone Conference, at which I bore my departing testimony. I was
grateful for the opportunity to bare my witness of our Savior and the
Plan of Happiness.
We found a new investigator this week
thanks to some awesome members who are preparing their friends to
receive the gospel. Her name is Susan and she is very open and wants to
learn more. We talked about the Priesthood power being restored to the
earth through Joseph Smith and she loved it. When we told her that
anyone holding the priesthood on the earth today can trace their line of
authority back to Jesus Christ it just clicked for her. I'm excited to
continue teaching her.
John and Vicki are doing awesome!
Most of their questions and concerns have to do with social matters like
the churches stance on abortion, voting, and welfare. They asked great
questions about being sealed in the temple and wanted to know where the
closest temple is. They are reading from the Book of Mormon together and
praying and I look forward to meeting with them each week!
had the opportunity to go to Mount Rushmore today and it was
breathtakingly beautiful. As I reflected upon it my heart filled with
gratitude. I know those men were inspired from the Lord to help in
obtaining the freedom of this land. I'm grateful to live in this country
where I can worship my God freely. I know the Lord has a Plan and
nothing will ever stand in the way of it rolling forth. I'm grateful to
have an active part in His plans rolling forth. I love you all so much!
Me, the flags and the heads! Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota
