April 8, 2013
Conference was awesome. I loved Elder Holland's talk! That man is powerful. I love hearing his testimony and I just hope mine is powerful like his when I bear it to the investigators. We had a good week. We have been focusing a lot on finding new people to teach and we found 12 and 3 new families. I just have to put my mind to finding and I love it. We left one night just walking down a road and I told my companion as we were walking if there were any people in the street or if there was a door open we would stop and contact them. We started walking and there was no one! We contacted a couple of open doors and no one wanted anything to do with us; that's alright, we just going! We finally were getting to the end of the street and I was getting anxious to find someone. We passed a door and I saw it was closed but a light was on. We walked past it and it was just like someone turned me around to go and contact the door. It was about 8:40 at night and we knocked the door. A girl came to the door and was talking to us. She just had the door open a little bit but I got my hand in enough to shake hands. We shared a little bit there on the door step and she told us we could come in and share a message. We ended up finding a new family of 5! It was awesome! I started later this week just praying and leaving the house with the idea in mind to find new families. We have been able to do it. We did it 4 days straight. It was awesome. It really is true that the Lord blesses us with the way to be able to do it. It has been crazy to see miracle after miracle this week being able to find new people. The Lord is preparing the people we just have to be obedient and open our eyes. I know this is the work of the Lord! He lives and He loves us! He did call Joseph Smith to be a prophet to restore the church here on the earth today. Thomas S Monson is God's prophet here on the earth. We have a cause to be happy because God lives and loves us! We are members of the true church! Be Happy!
