november 24, 2014 changing for the better...

so this week was crazy. it seriously flew by. after lunch on monday i started thinking about how i can change and be better. i started thinking about what more we can do in our area to see miracles. so i talked to my cute comp and we decided on some things we wanted to start doing and made goals. then we thought of the blessings we hoped for in return. it’s a sort of covenant that missionaries do... i’ve heard of some crazy ones but ours was basic and chill. our part included talking to more people on the street, or doing more contacts. i’ve never had much success with this but i know we need to show our faith and that there are lots of people looking for the truth that we pass by every day. so.. tuesday we got started and daaaang. the Lord really blessed us. we met some awesome people and hardly got rejected. it strengthen my testimony lots. i felt so happy to know that i was putting in the extra effort and stepping out of my comfort zone and the Lord was preparing the hearts of the people in my path. 

another awesome experience, but sad too, was last night at a members house. the mom, or grandma, is the only really active member. it’s only been a year or two since she returned to the church.  her husband is struggling to return because he smokes. all of her 3 daughters wandered off the path during the time they were less active and are living with their boyfriends and what not, other than one that got married and baptized her husband, but they live far away from the church and don’t have a car but this one particular daughter has a rock solid testimony. the mom and daughter were talking about how hard it is to know how important something is while the others in their lives don’t even care. we talked about the plan of salvation and how they expressed the urgency that their family needed go to the temple and be sealed because Christ will truly return to the earth again and we don’t have much time.. but other people—the people they love don’t feel this urgency. (i understand sister. i understand.) and after all is said and done and our experience is over in this life there comes a time when we won’t be able to change our choices. The Lord knows the true desires of every person’s heart and in the end we will receive the kingdom in heaven that we deserve… even if it means for some, living forever apart from our family. 
it just strengthened my testimony of: do it and do it now!! because… we never know when it will be too late. until the end we have to try and follow the commandments because the eternal consequences of not turning to the Lord while we are here on the earth and know His plan will be hard to bare in the next life.

i love you lots. 
have a great thanksgiving. were planning on buying a cheeseburger and fries and who knows maybe a coke #merica
