February 14, 2011
Happy Valentines Day! Haha. They do celebrate it here, but it's not huge. I've seen a few people with flowers and stuff.
This week was great! We saw so many miracles and I felt the Spirit so powerfully this week. There were a lot of things that in the moment, were disappointing (lessons falling through and stuff) but at the end of the week we just experienced so many wonderful things. The members are changing and we are developing and strengthening our relationships with them, and we are finding more people to teach and who are coming to church. On Sunday, a young couple that we just began teaching came to church, and at the end, the husband, Benjamin, told me, "I like this. We are going to come here now." We have felt such an outpouring of the Spirit as we have exercised our faith and done our best to be obedient and serve with love.
I know that Heavenly Father lives and has a plan for each and every one of us. He knows you! He knows your name. In His infinite love, He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth so that we would have the opportunity and ability to return to live with Him. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve Him, and to give my testimony to the world that Jesus is the Christ, that His church has been restored, with His authority, that He speaks to men, that He lives, and that He loves us. Thomas S. Monson is the prophet of the Lord on the earth today. I invite each of you to ponder the blessings that you have received and thank your Heavenly Father for his love and kindness. Pray and study the scriptures every day. You will feel greater spiritual strength and power, and you will feel the love of the Lord more powerfully each day.
I love you!!!!!
