Week 76 - The gospel really can make you so happy!

Lego Party

Back for another week! 
 On Monday night last week we had what's called a Lego party. It was a big service project and this man collects Legos then he cleans them all and sorts them out. Then he puts sets back together and gives them to kids in foster care. But he has buckets and buckets and Legos and he needs help sorting them so that's what we did! Ward members invited their neighbors and friends and we probably had about 100 people and it was so awesome to serve with the community and build relationships with other people who want to serve!

 This week we also met a man named Larry, and we are going to be teaching him over the phone! He is a truck driver but met the sisters when he was home for 4 days. Over that weekend they had 3 lessons with him, he went to church and decided he needed to get baptized but e problem was, he had to get back on the road and couldn't stay in contact with those sisters. So they referred him over to us and because we are serving in a visitor’s center we had the opportunity to teach online. So even though Larry can meet with missionaries in person, we can still teach him the lessons and he loves reading the Book of Mormon every night! I know Heavenly Father loves all his children, so he makes it possible for every person to know about His plan. 

Also the happiest part of our whole week was we had people come to church!:) if you remember the family we started teaching who had a picture of the temple on their mantle already? They are so prepared to receive the gospel in their lives! The father's parents are members so they came with them to church and everyone loved it. The kids especially! They had to leave a little early because they had a prior commitment, but as we pulled the kids out of primary they were like, we're leaving already!? The mom texted us after and said that her whole family loved church and she felt that we were heaven sent. And I know that we were because the spirit guides us to know where to be! I love when people being to understand how happy living the gospel really can make them. That's one of my favorite things about being a missionary:) 

All is well and God is good:)
