Hello to all who read this blog! I hope y’all had a good week! This week not gonna lie was a rough start but ended great! I’m so grateful for that!
At the beginning of the week we had exchanges with the sisters in Augusta and that was fun! After district meeting we had to go clean out the car that I crashed the week before. I hadn’t seen the car since the accident happened. When I saw the car and sat in the front seat again I had a flashback of what happened and I honestly kind of ” shut down” cause it scared me so bad!! My poor companion thought I was so mad but I was just in shock so that was a good way to start off an exchange ended up being so good! I loved being with Sister Petersen! We just sang hymns all day and did fun harmonies! I need to get this girl to sing in church with me!
We then had MLC this week and that was a great spiritual experiences! We learned lots and it was so fun to see everyone ESPECIALLY SISTER CURRAN! IM SO SAD WE DIDNT GET A PICTURE BUT MY HEART BURSTED WITH JOY WHEN I SAW HER. ️
Te’Andra and her boys are ready to be baptized this Saturday. We are going lessons 4 and 5 with a member this week and we are so excited. As I was going over the BIQS ( Baptismal interview questions ) with her this week she looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, ” I have been burden down with so many things in my life and I am so excited to feel free of them when I am baptized. ” As I looked at her I saw a mother who is tired, full of love for her children, wants to change her life, and who is a beautiful daughter of our Heavenly Father. I feel so blessed for the relationship I have built with Te’Andra. She is an amazing woman and I just love her so much. The baptism on Saturday will be beautiful as her and two of her oldest sons get baptized with her.
We had a surprise at church this week! Some elders were gonna have us meet one of their investigators Delora before Sunday but it didn’t work out. On Sunday morning we got a text message from her saying she was coming to join us! Delora and her son, Damarai came and loved it. She stayed all three hours. Bore her testimony in sacrament meeting, relief society, and told everyone it was her first time but that she felt she had found her new church home. Delora was definitely a miracle from our Heavenly Father and I’m so grateful to be here in Kansas witnessing all these wonderful miracles! We are excited to teach her and help her come closer to Christ.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I love you all! This scripture will be in my heart all week and I pray you all will remember it as well! Mosiah 3:19, “ For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his Father”
May we all come unto Christ by yielding ( following ) to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
