Thank you for the videos and letters and everything! You are the best immediate family that I have ever had!!!!!!!!!! Even better than last time I had 4 brothers.
My companion is pretty goofy. We have a lot of fun. We sing way too loud though (my poor neighbors). This week has put into perspective the work, because thats what it really is! Work! Facebook has been doing very well (no baptisms from it yet but still working!) and we are working with some really great families. We even had 5 people that came to Church yesterday! It was incredible. I have never seen so many nonmembers at church. And because of that they are all progressing really well. That is the ticket - having them go to church so they can "come and see," like the Savior taught, and having them experience the truth of the message for themselves.
We will not gain a testimony of something that we do not act on. It could be a feeling, a desire, a curiosity, anything. But we will never know if we don't do our part. If we knew the outcome and results before we chose, then it would take away from our agency!! That wouldn't be fair.
I am coming to understand more what it really means to keep the commandments. Like you probably hear all the time, it is a change of heart more than anything else. Salvation is not cheap, and it does not come by the word or the law alone. That is something a lot of people struggle with understanding, and that is why people generally don't understand that there is more than just the Bible. If all were close to God and knew Christ, then they wouldn't have to be told that the Kingdom is on the Earth! It would stick out like a sore thumb.
Anyways, just some thoughts I have had lately. How is the 'family mission' going? Is there a family mission plan that yall follow?!?!?!\
I love you all so much and hope you have a wonderful week.
