Life's Many Blessings

November 3, 2014


I hope everyone had a great week full of blessings! I know I did!
I have so many thoughts running through my head right now and so little time! I hope everything comes out all right.  This week was one of those growing week! I grew a lot in my own knowledge and testimony of the things that I teach.  And it came from fasting this past Sunday! It is truly amazing to see how Heavenly Father answers all of our prayers!!!

We also have an amazing investigator, Titus, that wants to be baptized soon! Last Monday while we were out walking, he pulled over and said hi to us! He had just finished work. That was such an amazing thing for us to have someone we are teaching come up and say hi! He is seriously so friendly and is like our friend!! We are so blessed to know Titus! He is also teaching us!!! As we taught him the Plan of Salvation this week, we would share with him scriptures from the Book of Mormon and he would then share scriptures with us from the Bible that went right along with it! He is a champ! 
It always amazes me how God works! He puts peoples names into our mind to see--it's just our thoughts, and then we go and check on them and they are home, they really needed to talk to us, etc.  I can't ever get over how aware he is of each of us individually!!

This week for preparation day we had the opportunity to go to Arlington National Cemetery. It is amazing over there! There is definitely a spirit there. As I was pondering as to why the spirit is so strong there, I realized that each and every one of these men or women had sacrificed for our country. And this scripture came to my mind: John 15:13
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
That is truly what we should all be doing--sacrificing our time, talents, even our life sometimes, to help others to be free and to know that they are loved!  I'm so grateful for my Savior's perfect example of that!

It truly is amazing to be here on a mission!!!! Words can't express how grateful I am to be here. I'm grateful I've had the opportunity to serve...and we all can, whether we are a missionary or not!! God has a great work for all of us to do!

Love you all!
