Indiana is wonderful. The weather is so nice right now. Last week was rainy, but we survived and made it to the glorious 75 degree weather. It's a matter of time before the weather turns into humid, hot heck. We are enjoying it while it lasts!
We spent two days with President Cleveland and the Zone leaders doing interviews, planner checks, and role plays. It was so fun! Busy!! It's the last week of the transfer so we will know what is happening in the zone this Saturday! EXCITING!!!
We taught Carla, our Italian beauty again this week! She is so solid. She can't be baptized while she is on her exchange here, so we will pray she follows through when she returns to Italy!
We got in touch with Lorain again! It was a miracle because she had just gotten home when we showed up! She needed time to think and feel the desire to learn again. It worked out perfectly!
Missionary work is the best. It isn't just for full time missionaries though! Member missionary work is crucial for the work! Our stake has set a goal for every family to fast and pray about a friend of theirs to share the gospel with and eventually refer to the missionaries.
We taught the lesson of the Restoration to the Mia Maids this last Sunday. We were talking about Joseph Smith and how he was prepared over time to fulfill his calling. It took a lot of effort and sacrifice to accomplish what God asked of him. He was willing to give all he had to for his God. He knew it was important, otherwise God wouldn't ask it of him. He also knew God would provide a way if he was obedient. This prompted a question in me, and Sister Williams and I have since discussed it. What wouldn't you give up to live with God forever? Think about that. Answer it for yourself. Is there anything in this world so precious to you that you would choose it over eternal life and joy with your Heavenly Father? I know Heavenly Father would choose us before anything else. I know this gospel is true. It may not be easy always, but the sacrifices I make are worth it. I want you all too know that I love my Heavenly Father. I love the Savior, Jesus Christ. And I love my family.
Have a great week!
