Pretty England, and we've been seeing more sun lately :)
Sister Cook's 1st time to the ocean!
Fish and Chips and Lemon Toppers at the coast :)
Prettiest tree. I remember seeing these trees last year!
Wow what a week!
There have been many ups & downs as usual. That's what life's about, the hard moments make me enjoy the good moments so much more. There has to be opposition in all things.
We have been blessed with more of the sunshine! Summer is coming, even if it is an English summer.
A member invited us over with one of our investigators we are working with. The best part was she set it all up! It was so great to have him in a members home and to help him feel more comfortable. We also watched the Restoration after we ate and the spirit that was there was incredible. He said he felt so calm and peaceful as he watched it. I am amazed at even though I have seen that movie so many times I can still feel the spirit so strongly every time I watch it. I have such a strong testimony that Jospeh Smith was able to restore the true church again on the earth.
We started working with a less active family who invited us back to have lunch this week! They opened up to us about some of their concerns and challenges they have with church. I was so impressed by Sister cook and her inspired questions and willingness to follow the spirit.
One of our friends we have been working with for quite a while as been really busy with work and it was so random but I felt like we should take her some flowers and a note. When we go there she was in and was really excited to see us. She said she got home from hospital earlier that day. We had a lesson with her and she said she wants to be baptised a lot sooner than she though. It was a straight miracle because she was planning to wait years but just through reading the scriptures and praying on her own she has realised she wants it sooner. When we choose to follow the little promptings that's when the miracles come.
In Wednesday at 1:30 am someone starts banging on our door, we look out the window and there are 2 cops. My heart started beating so fast! We opened the door and said someone had broken into our car. Some things were stolen and they said they arrested our next door neighbour because I guess someone saw someone jump over our fence. They had us fill our statement forms and they finally left at about 2:30. They told us to not touch our car until they fingerprint it. So the next morning a detective came and fingerprinted our car. It was quite the adventure and we are glad it's all over with now.
Something I am really trying to improve on, well there are many things. But one thing is showing people love. I have seen so many times when we show our love to others it can really change people. It's something I need to continually pray for and only Heavenly Father can help me develop.
I am so thankful for the Book of Mormon. Every morning as I read it I feel so much peace it helps me so much throughout the day. I love reading about all the stories and I love how much it talks about Christ. It makes me want to better testify of Him and His power.
Thank you for all the prayers and emails! They mean loads :)
