MORE SNOW…. March 2nd 2015
This Wednesday we have a mission conference in Beaver! So our whole mission will come together and we will get our I Pads...I’m assuming that we will have training on them as well. WOOHOO! I Pads will be so helpful!!
Well, last week on P-day our district went sledding. We drove to this hill that was pretty steep and high...it looked awesome!! So we climbed up, it was tough because there was a layer of ice underneath the snow. But we just kept going up...ha! So eventually we all went down. Let’s just say that is was not the smartest idea. The hill had ice and tons of rocks under the snow. So… half way down I flew off my sled. Yeah, let’s just say we all got hurt. I hurt my knee pretty bad (aka the picture) it was really swollen but it’s doing okay now! But pretty much everyone was bleeding and bruised so let’s just say it wasn’t the best idea! So moral of the story...don’t be stupid!!!
Well sad story...but we are teaching this family. And they are awesome! But the dad has never been home when we taught. This week he was there, but he sat in the other room. The lesson went amazing and the spirit was so strong!! They even wanted to be baptized!!! The kids looked so excited! Then all the sudden...the dad says in the background, "I don’t think anymore of this teaching is necessary" and he doesn’t want us to continue teaching his family. When he said that, his whole family’s faces just changed. They all looked so disappointed!! And it was the worst feeling in the world because I know they felt the spirit and were excited to be baptized. NOOOO!! It was so hard. But we are still allowed to visit them and we will pray that their Fathers heart will be softened. They are an awesome family and I know the Lord does not want us to give up on them!
Then another day we had a cool experience! We met this lady and she immediately let us in. She is in Richfield because her kids live here but she doesn’t have custody of them. They are 12, 9 and 8 years old. She gets to see them once a day. She has been through a lot in her life. But she loves her children and wants to change. She said her children are about to get baptized and she wants to know what this church is about! She was way happy to see us and she was way open! And …the crazy part is that we are already teaching her children!!! We had no idea until we saw their pictures on the wall. She is awesome and I know there are great things in store for this family.
Well it’s snowing a lot! This morning we shoveled an older man’s drive way and he was way grateful. It’s the first time I have ever had to shovel snow! Oh and I was able to travel to Manti for a day for exchanges so that was fun! I have met so many people who have gone through so much but I have seen the gospel change lives! We taught a Young women’s lesson on the atonement... the atonement of Jesus Christ is the most amazing gift we have yet so many people don’t know how it can help them!! That is why we have to share it this beautiful message!!
I Love this Gospel… there is a lot of work to do!
