Hello Everyone! This week was GREAT! Let me start off my saying thatit rained three different days this week! Along with some hail it wasso great! However that was not the best part of the week! Rememberwhen i totally sunburned on side of my body? IT WAS WORTH IT! The daywhen I burned my left side of my body basically it was because we werestanding in the same spot for two hours talking to someone on thestreet that we had basically tracted into. It was great. Well it justso happens that we got in contact with him again this week and we hadthe best lesson ever! He wanted his kids to be there (all 6 of them).It was so good. We taught the restoration lesson and the spirit was soso so strong! At the end of the lesson the father When we asked him ifhe believed that Joseph Smith was a prophet he looked at us and saidyes I do. I really do. Ahhhh the best words to ever come out ofsomeone's mouth ever! Then we asked all the kids how they felt andthey said we are curious. We want to know more! The second best thingto come out of someone's mouth! So we left that lesson spirituallycharged but also with 6 new investigators that we have the amazingopportunity to help the, understand the importance of Heavenly Fatherin their life and help them come closer to him. I feel so blessed.Then it rained and hailed at the end of the lesson and it was a doubleblessing!The next day we had the opportunity to meet with Elder Jeffrey R.Holland and President Robbins. That was an amazing experience. Beingin the presence of an apostle and hearing him testify of thetruthfulness of the gospel is something that I will never forget. Thespirit was so strong and so good there. He talked about a lot ofthings. The highlight for me was when he was talking about the waythat Christ taught when he was here and he talked about how Christ metpeople at the level that they were at and took them to where theyneeded to be. (John 3 & 4) I loved that so much. I believe that notonly applies to teaching but it also applies to every single personthat ever lives. Christ will meet us where we are at and he will carryus to where we need to be but it will only be if we let him. Anotherthing that Elder Holland spoke about was about being finishers. Hesaid that the blue ribbon does not come at the beginning of the race.It does not come at the middle of the race. It comes at the end of therace. Heavenly Father wants to give you your blue ribbon but you haveto finish the race. Then he went on talking about not giving up and itwas the best thing ever.The next day I was reading in Ether 3 where it tells the story of theBrother of Jared. This chapter really stood out to me and in adifferent way than it normally does. Usually I recognize that theBrother of Jared had this immense amount of faith which is very veryvery true but I noticed this time that the Brother of Jared does hispart first and then the Lord does his. He makes stones, he follows thecommandment to pray, he exercises faith in the Lords miracles and thenthe Lord shows himself to the brother of Jared and he lights thestones. I really loved studying that. It just goes to show that wehave to do our part and then The Lord will do his. In the moment thatwe don't believe the Lord is nearby helping us is the moment that heis carrying us to where we need to be.
