When I was in the MTC, Sheri Dew came and spoke for one of the devotionals. One of the things she said was to never underestimate what it means to know something. I have seen the wisdom in that statement this week.
We have two investigators with a lot of potential right now. One is Jimmy, who we met again and talked more about baptism with. He seemed far more excited this time, and he asked all the perfect questions. When we talked about how Christ helps us with all we go through, he asked what he needed to do to obtain that help from him, which showed how sincerely he was looking for the blessings and the truth. Our other investigator talked about how he works from nine in the morning to eight at night, plus an hour and a half travel time each way. He expressed how he was tired and struggling to be happy, and repeatedly mentioned how he wanted our life because we are always happy. He is looking for greater meaning in his life and is his family life than just work.
A simple testimony can change a life. I know that we are children of Heavenly Father. He has a plan for us, which is to follow His Son, Jesus Christ. Knowing this, and even more importantly, living it, has brought light into my life. Others seek this light. The privilege and responsibility of sharing this simple knowledge, the simple truth of eternity, is so amazing. Though I fall short every day, knowing that we can talk with our Father in Heaven and obtain our Savior's aid always lift me back up.
I love you all! Have a great week!
Hello everyone! Looks like you are having a great week in Utah. I miss pageant season too! I actually didn't get the video of Michael, but I've been talking with him a lot over email. I am so happy for him! Utah missions are super unique from what I've heard. You cover so many wards and have so much leadership to work with.
Sorry about short emails - I can't make them as long as they once were because we used to have 2 hours to email, but only have 1 now. Sometimes the weekly report to President Sonksen takes longer than others, too. I'll to say more and send more pictures, too!
I love you all and pray for you all the time. Have fun in Utah! Email me, Nichole!
