Hello on this beautiful morning!
What a week! We've had our ups and downs, but throughout it all, I still love being a missionary!
We then went and contacted some referrals and were able to find a cute family to possibly teach and another investigator! It was amazing! We then ended the night by talking to this young man on his porch who was nearly drunk, but going through a major trial. His dad has cancer and is dying. We were able to share a brief message with him and he invited us back for when he was sober. He said he loves Mormons and would love answers to some of the questions he has. We are excited to teach him and bless his life with the knowledge of the restored gospel.
I'm so grateful for this restored gospel. I know it is true. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that we have a prophet on the earth today who is led by God. I know that as we listen and follow the prophet we are blessed and truly happy. It breaks my heart when I meet people who don't have this belief. They are happy, but not as happy as they could be. One man told me that I had a pretend happiness and it hit me how truly this gospel has blessed my life. To be blessed means to be happy in any circumstance. I am not just simply happy, but I have the kind of happiness that will last eternally! How wonderful this gospel truly is!
Well, I hope you all had a great 4th of July! Dad, I'm glad you got your Mona Page cake, save me some! heehee jk.
