How are you all doin? I sure love you guys and i sure miss you all but i know that this is where i am supposed to be at this point in time and i am so grateful for all the love and support that i get from each of you. Your prayers and letters of encouragement are so helpful and i look forward to hearing from you! :)
This week was just full of fun! We had a district meeting this week and it was super awesome. But then we went out to lunch afterwards as a district and we had so much fun eating as a group of missionaries. It is so much fun to just chill and have a great time with all the other missionaries.
We had a really funny accident last week. We were teaching a less active a lesson on faith. I dont know if any of you have seen the tea bag lesson but what you do is talk about faith and set a certain type of tea bag in their hand and ask them if they have faith that we wouldnt hurt them... then you light the bag on fire and right before the flame hits their hand the tea bag floats away... well we were giving that lesson outside and we set the tea bag in his hand an lit it on fire well then the wind blew and tipped it over. The less active didnt say much so we figured it wasnt burning him or else he would drop it... so we left it on his hand... really we just didnt know what we were supposed to do at that point it was all happening so quickly. Then he was like um that is pretty hot but by that time it had burned out and he started laughing and we started laughing. Needless to say it is a good thing he had a good attitude about us burning him.
We got to experience a really neat baptism yesterday. So there is this lady in our ward and her husband is not a member of the church and he doesnt want anything to do with it. She has an 8 year old boy and a 7 year old little girl. Well she wanted her son to be baptized but she wanted approval from the dad before she went ahead and did it. She was super nervous to ask him but she took a step of faith and did it anyway. At first he wasnt for it but in the end he told her he knew how much it meant to her so he was okay with it. So her son was able to be baptized yesterday after a lot of prayers from many people. The spirit was super strong there and it was so cool cause in his confirmation blessing it talked a lot about him being an example to his dad and his dad eventually will come around. It was so amazing. The dad wasnt there but we keep praying that his heart will be softened. The lady has a super powerful testimony and just loves the gospel. You can see it in her countenance. She just glows :)
I know this gospel is so true i know that it has been restored in all of its fullness here on earth. I know that through it we can be eternal families and receive the highest degree of glory in the celestial kingdom and how grateful i am for that. I know we each have something spectacular to accomplish here on earth. I love each of you so much and you are all in my prayers. :)
Love your sister Davis :)
