The other day we set out to find all of the people that were interested but could never get a hold of. We prayed about getting a hold of them. We were able to get in and teach and the spirit was strong with both Kimberly’s. Any time we get to bare a solid testimony on the restoration I feel the spirit so strongly. We had an experience the other day where a less active member had some way different concerns. We bore our testimonies and even thought she had not been to church in over twenty years and her husband took his name off the records after being in the temple, she bore a simple but powerful testimony so simple that she did not even realize why she hadn’t been to church. She figures that that anti had a lot to do with it and regrets ever reading any of it. She worries about having lead her children astray.
Of course the Atonement of Jesus Christ plays a big part and can make her feel whole again. We gave her the official church website and we’ll pray that the testimony she has now will grow. From the first time she had the sister come over a couple of months ago, she was upset and didn’t want any other contact with any members. Her heart has softened; she is open and earning to fill her heart with the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ again. You don’t know how much it means to me to be an instrument in the Lords hands, when all I do is heed to the promptings of the spirit. This is the best work anyone can ever imagine. I have so much to be grateful for. Beside that we had our first exchanges. Yeah! I went up to the Media office with Sister Quinton. I made sure she knew how much I loved her and was grateful for being such an awesome missionary. We helped start a clean up at this deaf ladies home who had no room at all to even just stand. We barley made a dent but at least it’s a start.I love you all soooo much
