|Kirsten celebrating her 20th Birthday with Sister Lane|
and the Sanchez Family
We have just seen so many miracles this week. We have had so much fun serving here in Cincinnati. It is truly quite the experience. So lately i have been praying to have charity. Especially for the people that we teach. I want to really see them through the eyes of our Heavenly Father. I had a neat but heartbreaking experience yesterday. We went back to one of our investigators and he told us that he just doesnt believe. He said that too much has happened in life that there could just not be a God. He said that he used to be super religious. He said that when he was going through those hard times that he prayed and asked God to just push him in the right direction. He said that he felt like he got no answer and things just got worse. But as we were standing there hearing him the thoughts that kept coming to my mind is that this is a son of God and he doesnt even know it. I didnt know what to say to him. I kept praying and asking my Heavenly Father. But for a moment i got a small feeling of sorrow because this man doesnt know his father. He doesnt know that there is someone out there that knows everything about him that knows the pain he has gone through and the heartache he has felt. I wanted so badly to just help him see how much our Heavenly Father loves him but he wouldnt listen to it. I want you all to know that you have a Heavenly Father and he loves you beyond comprehension. He knows you and will always be there for you!
So saturday we had a real funny experience. We were going to see our investigator that we had an appointment with. It was about 7:30 in the evening and all the lights in the house were off. We decided to still try and see him. Well on the way up to the door we hear this loud snoring from coming inside. We didnt end up knocking. Well we went back the next day and told him that we missed seeing him yesterday. He told us that he got called into work about 7:30... so either his dog has a really manly snore or he was pretty late for work... haha it may have been a had to be there moment but we thought it was pretty funny.
I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving! i am so grateful for my opportunity to serve. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Please all of you be safe and remember who you are. I love you so so much!!!
