CINCO DE MAYO!               May 9th, 2016

This was a crazy, fun, busy week!  We saw a lot of people. Our new investigator
Joy is doing well... She has tons of questions so it's sometimes hard
to teach her things! She talks a lot...  which is awesome.  She is so prepared.
Charles and Mandee are doing was a stressful week for them so
we didn't get to see them as much as we would have liked to.

Thursday was a crazy day!!  We had zone meeting in Cedar City all day.
We played tug of war at the meeting with all the missionaries so that was
fun!  It was to help us learn to be more unified and "equally yoked".
Then we had to get back to Beaver and help set up for the Cinco de
Mayo party!  Since there is a huge Hispanic population here in Beaver,
the Spanish elders, us and some members set up a party at the church
building and it was a huge success!  A lot of of our investigators came and
it was super fun. Tons of good food too!  I was in charge of the piñata so
that was crazy… Ha but way fun.

We also had a powerful lesson with the Alabama family on the atonement and
how the savior can help us forgive. Both of them have had
some hard things that have happened to them in the past that they have
a hard time forgiving. He said he literally felt a weight in his
shoulders. That brought to mind this scripture:

"13 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in
their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort,
for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will
covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage. 14 And I will
also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you
cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and
this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and
that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people
in their afflictions." (Mosiah 24:13-14)

That Saviors atonement is so amazing and can literally lift the burden
from our shoulders. Everyone in the room was crying...I just love them
so much!  The gospel of Jesus Christ is changing lives!!

Love y'all!
