Well, it was another great week!!! Just love it when most of our appointments with people follow through, and we're able to use our time productively. :)
We met with Gunner and Brittany on Thursday night, and had an awesome lesson! Gunner is less active, and Brittany is not a member but has been coming to church with him for over a year. They are high school sweethearts, 20 years old, and they have two little boys. It's so hard not being able to hold their little baby!!!! Anyway, it's hard because Gunner doesn't want us to pressure her. We taught lesson 3-the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We focused a lot on the power and gift of the Holy Ghost and the power and reality of the Priesthood. I feel the Holy Ghost giving me the thoughts and words to speak all the time, but sometimes it's more clear and powerful; this was definitely one of those times. We invited her to pray about receiving a Priesthood Blessing. We are seeing progression with her! :)
We met our goals this week, which was good, and we actually found some service opportunities...! Well, I guess we created some... :) One thing we did was make cookies for some of the less actives we teach. We felt one in particular, Karen was really in need of something like that. She has been really sick, is single and older, and has to work because they are short of help at work. She hasn't had time to recover, so she has been getting worse. She texted us and told us she needed our prayers and faith and that we are really the closest thing she has to family. :/ We have been praying for her, and she txted us the other day saying that her fever cleared, and she knows God is healing her!! The healing power of God is DEFINITELY real!!
Well, I hope you are all doing well and remaining close to God. I am so excited for the Women's Broadcast this week and General Conference next week!!!! I know that as you seek revelation and go before God in earnest prayer, you will receive guidance and answers.
