Anyway this week was a spiritual overload. The one and only Elder Bednar visited our mission for a mission tour and it was incredible! He talked all about faith is ACTING! Faith is not praying for 5 hours and just waiting for God to do something. Faith is just doing and trussing in God. Then he had an hour Q&A session and we received all sorts of personal revelation. THEN we all shook his hand but i decided that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity so I gave him a big bear hug. Hahah best day ever. Then he came back that night for a triple stake fireside. It was legendary.
Cool and sad story. There is a really old member who is bed ridden and we had tried to give him the sacrament 2 weeks in a row but we went to the wrong house and we thought he just wasnt home. So then finally last Sunday we found his house and gave him the sacrament. Unfortunately 5 days later he passed away. Crazy miracle right? He stayed alive and fought on just 1 more week to take the sacrament 1 more time before he died. It really made me appreciate the sacrament more.
We have this really cool butcher that we're teaching and he came to our Meet the Mormons activity and loved the movie. He told the member that gave us the reference that he wants to be baptized! So this week we will make that wish a reality! haha so yeah we're pumped. We love the members here.
Well gotta run. Read your scriptures and say your prayers. And don't take for granted the sacrament. You never know when it will be your last time.....
