Dear Family and Friends,
Well, with the reset going on with the iPads, our first step is to be
master users of the Areabook app. So, what does that mean? It means
keeping our Areabook up to date with all the lessons, and people we
have met! Well, with how busy we've been, we have not been doing so
well, but we decided it needed to be done, so we took a decent amount
of time and did just that. We cleaned it up, filled everything in, and
helped it be more effective. And it felt good.
Later, we went to a Seven Eleven to use the Internet, and on the way
there, and on the way back, we met some really awesome people! One was
a family! And they accepted a copy of the Book of Mormon! And so did
another young mother! She listened to what we said, and she told us
that she believes that God is there, and that He listens to her when
she prays to Him. She said that she prays with feelings, but she
doesn't really use words, but even that is enough to reach the
heavens. It was a great experience.
Well, this week, we went to church, and there was a baptism! One of
the member's sons had turned eight, and he decided he wanted to be
baptized. I don't think I have participated in such a spiritual
experience in a while. He bore his testimony at the end, and you knew
that he realized that he had changed, and for a while, he sat in
silence, not knowing what to say. And then, he started to cry, and
said he was grateful to all that came today, and that he was grateful
to be baptized. Wow.
Well, lots and lots of things learned, but one that hit me recently is
that too much stress is not good. But relying on the Savior is. Has
everyone seen the new video by the church "He Lives"? I watched it
this morning. So good. It's true! It will bless us!
Have a great General Conference, and a wonderful Easter!
The gospel blesses us, and I invite you to list all the ways it
blesses your life, too!
