(: Thanksgiving was a blast! We spent the day at different members homes, and just enjoyed looking at how other families interact with each other. We found 6 new investigators this week! We're so excited to teach them! One of them is SOO prepared. Her grandmother passed away a couple of months ago, and she was SUPER into religion.. and this girl doesn't even know if she has faith in God... but after we were leaving she said "This was nice! Not annoying, like it normally is. I like this, I can't wait for you to come back!" (: And we can't wait to see her !! She LOVES her family and so we KNOW that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will totally ring true in her heart.
Later this month there's a couple in our ward who will be getting Sealed! It is soo cool (: He has been a member for 6 years, and he had to quit a lot of things to join. Then he's been struggling, but getting back on track again. And then his daughter totally called him out and told him that he wasn't honoring his priesthood, so he got his act together so that his wife could be happy and that their family could be for FOREVER (: The thing I love most about this, is that he's not only making changes for now, HE'S REALLY COMMITTED TO THE COVENANTS HE WILL MAKE to God in the temple. He isn't just going to get sealed and jump off the bandwagon, he's determined that he will live true to it so that his daughter will think that he's a good person. And that's a life long journey (: People out here will do ANYTHING for their families, and most of the time it means they have to change for the better (: There's another husband who him and his wife aren't sealed, but he hasn't been worthy for a while. She's struggled too, but now she's staying firm... and so he is slowly starting to change, too! The other week he passed the sacrament!! (: It's the little things that make us the happiest! Living worthy EVERYDAY in the little things is what leads us to being happy in the BIG things!
(: Life is great!
