So, there were a few days this past week where my companion was sick and so we stayed home. President Woodbury gave the mission a challenge last weekend to start studying the doctrine of Christ in the Book of Mormon highlighting all things related to faith in Christ, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. IT’S ROCKIN’ MY WORLD studying those things in the Book of Mormon. I couldn’t put it down and I read and studied about 70 pages in it in those 2 days that we had to stay home.
On Tuesday we had a dinner appointment with a member so we went over and she tells us that she had sent us a text saying that she wouldn’t be able to meet tonight. Oops. Turned out she sent that text to the Elder’s thinking that we shared the phone haha. But she let us come in anyway to share a message though she felt bad she hadn’t made anything for us to eat. We had a beautiful lesson about Christ and His Atonement. I KNOW that we needed to be there for her to know and be told that she was loved by our Heavenly Father. She teared up and the Spirit was very strong. It was meant to be… just like everything else.
I know that there is a God in the heavens that loves us.. every single one of us. We don’t understand that love because it’s just too much for us to handle. But we’ll understand when we’ll live with Him once again.
