This week has been legit! We have had so much fun and met some really just amazing people! There is just to much and I want to save some stuff for stories when I come home so I won’t tell you about all of it! The best story though is a miracle and the amazing testament to the power of prayer. So Sunday I get super discouraged. We have no one to teach no one who wants to learn and it seems like I’m putting a lot of work into nothing. So I am on my knees for what seems like forever just seeing what I am doing wrong. I ask for someone to teach this week who need the plan of salvation. The next morning we get a media referral and those usually turn out to be a bus no one ever refers themselves but some how we always get their numbers and addresses requesting a visit. So we expect this guy to be the same. But we go to visit him he invites us in and we talk for a little while. We learn that he went to Boise State and had an LDS roommate. Later in his life, so now, his life is in the pits and he wants to be happy like his roommate always was. Also he wants to know how his family can be closer together and happier as a whole. Bam! The Church is true the Lord answers prayers and we are his children! Which leads me to my spiritual thought. There is a story of some prophet ( I can’t remember who) is on an airplane and a guy asks how he knows that the church is true. He replies the spirit testified to him of it. The guy asks the question well how can you tell that it is the spirit and not just you. After going back and forth with scripture for awhile he replies. Have you ever tasted salt? The man replies of course I have. Can you tell salt from pepper or cinnamon? Why of course! Can you tell me what salt tastes like? The man fumbles for a bit and says no I cant. He is told. Neither can I tell you what the spirit feels like and how it testifies of truth. Unless you experience it you can not know. That is everything that we tell people to do. Try it for yourselves and you will find that it is good! We can talk and go around in circles until we are blue in the face and the sun burns out of light and unless you try it for yourself you will not be able to know. I have tested it and I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is Gods true church on the earth today. The Lord has given us a prophet to lead and guide us back to him. Please find that answer for yourself! Get on your knees and ask! I promise that you will get your answer. I love you all so much and can’t wait to hear from you guys on how everything is going! Have an amazing week!
