Hey everyone!!! The subject line refers to a song we made this week for sister dawes' sister who is turning 18. It was a pretty fun night trying to come up with that song on the uke and then recording it!
Anyways, this week was great! He had so many miracles/tender mercies happen!
We had a lesson on tuesday with a recent convert who has stopped coming to church and turned back to old habits. She was talking about how she wanted more direction in life and for some reason I asked if she had her patriarchal blessing (a blessing we get specifically for us to give us counsel and guidance in our life). She asked what it was so we explained it to her and she said"Yeah! I want that!" So we told her she needs to start working on some things in order to get one and were hoping that this will be a good motivation to help her come back to church and stuff.
On Wednesday it was super hot and we didnt want to tract so we decided to stop by some potential and former investigators! While we stopped by one this lady came out and she wasnt the lady we were looking for but we talked to her anyways and taught her a lesson and she loved it and weve been in contact with her all week and are going to go back to teach her! It was a super cool miracle!
Thursday night we had an activity for all the women at church. We did a service project at this place called Soup for Success. Its a place where troubled people or people who just need support can go and take classes and get involved in the community! So we helped make these "soup in a bag" things that they sell! It was really fun!!
Friday was awessomeee!!!! We saw our investigator Nicki and her brother Cody was there too! They are both so awesome and we got to teach them both! Nothing in our plans went the way we planned but it was so cool to be guided by the Spirit and their needs! They both said they would come to church on sunday and we were so excited! Sunday morning Nicki calls and tells us that she is sick and cant come but Cody wants to!!! So we helped him get a ride and he came and totally loved it! He had to leave early from Sunday School class and as he was leaving he got up in front of the class and thanked everyone and said his goodbyes! It was so funny but so sweet! Also, he said the opening prayer for class and he told us that that was the first time he had prayed since he was 6!!!! He is so amazing! And he is already on the path to turn his life around:)
On Saturday we went out with one of the young women to knock on doors! We knocked only on one side of the street down one street (only like 9 houses) and we talked to and taught lessons to 5 of them! It was so cool! We met some really awesome people!
Well...thats about it! Hope you all had a good week too! I wanted to share the scripture
Doctrine & Covenants 6:34-36.
34 Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail.
35 Behold, I do not condemn you; go your ways and sinno more; perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you.
36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
I love this scripture and I always look to it when Im having a hard day! Remember, God is always looking out for us and wants the best for us because he LOVES us!!!!
Love you all!
