I'm Happy:)))))

Wow this was a crazy week!... Crazy good though!!
From 2 exchanges, to new people being taught, to crazy lightning storms and tornado warnings. It was a great week!

Well last week I talked about Candace and the miracle it was to find her. Well an even greater miracle happened again with her.
We had 2 appointments set up with her this week, but both of them fell through. Elder Jones and I were getting a little worried that she didn't want to learn anymore. We found out on Thursday that she was really sick and can't get out of bed. We decided go stop by Friday and Saturday to make sure to let her know we were thinking about her. Both of those days she wasn't even able to come to the door, so we had her niece relay the message to her.
We were starting to worry that she wouldn't read the Book of Mormon and we thought there was no way ahe would come to church.
Sunday Morning elder Jones and I began the day by praying for Joe and Candace that they both would be able to come to church.
When we got to church we waited in the foyer all the way up to 5 before the hour and then we decided that they weren't going to make it. We shuffled into the chapel and began the meeting.
After the sacrament an army of people flooded into the chapel. I scanned the crowed to see if I could find an answer to my prayer, but I didn't.
Then right when I thought the herd of people were gone. I saw two, literally glowing faces walk through the door. (You should of seen how happy Candace looked!) It was Candace and Joe!! They came and sat next to us and began to listen.
After the meeting I had the opportunity to talk to Candace for a while. I asked her about her experience at church. She told me that she had gone to the wrong meeting house, but that didn't stop her. She turned around and started to go to the right one (take that Satan!)
She also mentioned a few other things that helped her to come go church that really inspired me!
At church Candace's countenance had totally changed she became not a sick, gloomy, and sad person, but a person full of light and love. She was grinning from ear to ear and soaking in everything!

I know this is the fullness of the Gospel! I know as we put off the natural man and become as a child, then the blessings of heaven will be poured out upon us! We will see our countenance change and we will ultimately become much more happy. I know that we are given the power to choose so we can learn and become better.
This is an amazing work and I hope that you would all join in it by sharing with those around you. You will see their countenance change and it will change you!
Love you all!
Elder Johnson
