|A little fun with the camera|
This week we taught an amazing woman named Ann. We have been teaching her for a while now and you can literally see the difference the gospel is making in her life, it is as if someone flipped a switch and her whole demeanor has shifted dramatically. We were talking about coming to church and praying with her. Her one hold up on her baptism is that she keeps not coming to church! So we were talking about it with her we talked about a story that was just perfect, it's found in 2 Kings 5:
I love verse 13, because the Lord is not asking is to do anything that is impossibly hard, He is simply asking us to do those small and simple things that will bring us closer to Him and allow us to return to Him some day! We taught Ann that these are not hard things, that these things are not impossible to do, but that as we do them we will be blessed. I know that that is true, that as we do those things that are "seminary answers" that we will grow closer to our Heavenly Father and that He will bless us enormously!
I had an amazing tender mercy this week! My retainer broke soon after I got here to Washington, Bummer! I am not one of those people who can get away without wearing my retainer, my teeth do not like to stay put! So I had to go get a new one made. Sister Anderson (my bishop's wife) suggested I get Dr. Bird to do it for me, so I went and got the impressions done and a few days later went to pick it up. When I reached for my wallet the receptionist waved me off and said "No charge!" which was awesome because retainers cost a lot of money! It doesn't end there! When I opened up the retainer case there was not one but TWO new retainers. What a tender mercy, that an amazing Dentist would be kindhearted enough to help me out! Blessings!
Transfers were this week and I am staying in Lincoln for another six weeks! Random fact, I won't be writing until next Wednesday because we have a zone conference next Monday! Have a wonderful week!
All my love,
