Little Blessings

So this week was pretty sweet! It was pretty busy which is always a blessing! We had zone conference and it was awesome to hear from President Heap and his assistants! He talked a lot about how we can feel the Holy Ghost and how we should be looking for it and it was great! It was definitely something that I needed to hear so I'm grateful for President Heap and the inspiration that he receives for all of his missionaries! I also had an interview with him and I'm grateful for all the love that he has shown to me throughout my mission experience! I got my temple recommend renewed because it expires at the end of this year, which is super weird because that means that I got it two years ago...
We got to teach Serena again and we finished the Restoration with her and committed her to read from the Book of Mormon! We got to meet with her again on Sunday and she said that she has another listener for us! She had talked to her boyfriend about us and he is interested in what we have to say, so we were able to teach him the Restoration and the Book of Mormon and committed him to be baptized on June 10th! So they both have a goal for that day and it's going to be sweet!
We were able to visit some of the recent converts in the ward and do some new member discussions with them and help them progress a little more! I got a pic with one, Sandra, and she is awesome! She calls us her boys and she is super good to us. I am grateful for such good members!
We got to go to the Cavers National Forest and is was awesome! A member works there and he took us on a private tour and it was just us!
It was an overall pretty great week! It's great to be able to see the hand of the Lord in the things that we undertake, whether we're full time missionaries or not. He is constantly blessing us in the things that we are doing! I hope everyone gets the chance to recognize His hand in our everyday life's and see and feel the love that God and the Savior have for each of us! Love y'all and hope you have a great week!
