WOW! we had such a week. We met with the McNamara family who is so amazing. We were teaching about the Book of Mormon and towards the end the parents looked up at both of us and said... "okay.. SO.. how will we know when we are ready"! WHAT!? They have talked a lot about how this is just the right time for their family. I love hearing that. I love seeing when FAMILIES are so ready to grasp on to the gospel and just HOLD on. It is so important to help others stay active in the church. That's a life long calling:) Let's strive to be better at reaching out to those that are in need of something this week!
We have had so many neat opportunities past week to share the gospel. We met a man named Kennedy who is from Cambodia. HE speaks little English but we were able to teach him the restoration. It was such a powerful lesson as he read the first vision in Cambodian. I could truly feel the spirit and we know that he felt it too. He was able to come to church this week and it was so cool to sit next to him and watch him try to listen so close to what others were saying.
one funny story before i end. We are helping Randi prepare for baptism and she seems to be so ready but their are a few things that she is still working on to know. She came to church yesterday and we were talking with her and out of no where she looked up at us and said.. "ya know what, I think i am coming closer to entering into Gods bathtub" Oh my goodness. It had to have been such an unforgettable moment. I couldn't tell if i wanted to laugh or cry because of what she had just said to us. I love that. I love when they finally get it and they understand that its for them and they have their own testimony of it.
My testimony of the gospel has increased. I have such a deeper love for the Book of Mormon. I love feeling so accomplished at the end of the day. It is truly a feeling you just cant describe.!
love you all so much. thank you for all the prayers and all the support. I can feel them:)
