Hello!!! It has been a week of a spiritual high and it feels so great!:)
- On Tuesday we had the privilege of going to Halifax for a baptism of the cutest girl Laurali!:) She is 12 and is the daughter of a member who grew up in Truro and was baptized here years ago. It was so fun! Afterwards we asked her how clean she felt on a scale of 1 to 10 and she was like.. DEFINITELY a ten!!! It was amazing!
- We had a lot of really fun lessons this week with our investigators. It is amazing how you can spend so long preparing for a lesson and then you get into it and the spirit just starts teaching you things as you teach.. half the time I didn’t know I knew the things I knew to teach them. I love it so much!
- Because of Conference we had some extra time on Sunday morning so Sister Hird and I went and visited the Baptist and Catholic churches in town! It was really interesting to see how different their cultures and ways of worship vary. The Baptist church was like a Sunday concert focused on Jesus and it was so awesome!!:) I loved it. We were just so confused through the whole Catholic Mass because they were constantly reciting things and standing up and sitting down. I got a good leg work out from it!
- I LOVED conference this weekend!! It was so amazing. How blessed we are to have heard from our beloved Prophet on the earth today, President Thomas S. Monson. I found it so beautiful that he talked about something so simple, yet it is something we as members of the church sometimes forget is such a BIG DEAL. We have been warned again and again that even the very elect WILL be deceived by the enemy of truth. Those simple activities of Scripture Study and Daily Prayers are what fortify our testimonies and keep us in line with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “If you do not have a firm testimony of these things, do that which is necessary to obtain one. It is essential for you to have your own testimony in these difficult times, for the testimonies of others will carry you only so far. My dear associates in the work of the Lord, I implore each of us to prayerfully study and ponder the Book of Mormon each day. As we do so, we will be in a position to hear the voice of the Spirit, to resist temptation, to overcome doubt and fear, and to receive heaven’s help in our lives.” -Thomas S. Monson
Sister Hird and I made an impulse decision and dyed my hair this morning!! 🙂
