So this week was stake conference week, SOO good.
On wednesday they did a youth session, I had the great opportunity to be a part of that by being on a missionary panel. There was a ton of youth there and that whole thing was completely missionary minded. I love this about the Pasco Stake they are very missionary minded here. I think it is that way in all of pasco, I talked with a family last night in the 11th ward and the wife told me that she and the other den leaders are going to the schools and recruiting for cub scouts. They have already got 9 non members to sign up. What a wonderful way to give kids a chance to rub shoulders with non members and give them a chance to be a light house to others. It all comes from a true desire to bless our brothers and sisters.
I love that it is such a focus because it should be, missionary work is one of the most important things that we can do. To be able to help with bring Fathers family back together that is what it is all about.
The best blessing of this work is seeing people change and come closer to Christ, to watch them become something better. I had the cool expereince this week to see someone that I started teaching almost 2 years ago. She was baptized after I left to Wenatchee. Her name is Peyton, she was the youngest daughter of a LA family and she was 14 at the time I was teaching her. She is still very strong in the gospel and sense has seen her older brother Gavin come back to church and receive the Priesthood. She is a light house and she still shines so bright! What a great blessing it was to see her.
This week we had a lot of things that seemed to get in the way of the work, Satan was really trying to combat our efforts this week. It was a powerful testimony to me that Gods power is always going to trump Satan and when you act in faith to access that power you are always going to feel confident in the presence of God. Jason a new investigator came to church and is preparing for baptism on March 26th. We are going to have to move Johns date, He is doing really well but he is just taking longer to teach then we thought, he has come to church 2 times and has liked it both times he would have been this week but he was really sick. We also just found this wonderful family that is going to have their lives changed from the gospel. The Mothers name is Cierra and she has three kids.
I love the people of this work, there are so many people that just get caught up in the world and it seems so dark such a blessing to see the Light of Christ bring them out of that. AAAAAHHHHHH WOW I love The Atonement so much.
I love you
Brenda Gilbert was baptized and so many missionaries worked with her. She is so wonderful.
