So first off funny story. We were over at a members house last night for dinner. They have a little four year old girl and she is just a crack up. we had lasagna but instead of beef in it they put turkey in it which tasted good still. I actually couldnt taste the turkey at all. But their little girl turned to her mom and was like "Mom did you have this turkey as a pet and accidentally kill it and cook it." We all died of laughter. She just said the funniest things the whole night. She was completely just and innocent little girl that wanted to know so much. She reminded me a lot of my little sister when she was that age. Haha!
So lately sister Stokes and i have been praying for some solid investigators. It is so amazing to see how God just provides these people for you. You literally cant find anyone without the direction and help from God. I have learned that is why it is so important to follow promptings from the spirit. So for the first part of the week i had been having this feeling that we needed to go see Sister Tolle this member of the ward. So i mentioned it to my companion and we kept putting her as back ups to the people we were already seeing. Then wednesday came and i was like Sister Stokes i dont know why but i really feel like we need to go and see sister Tolle right now. So we went over there and nothing was going on so we just went in and visited with her not really sure of why we had to be there right then. But as we were in the middle of the lesson her nurse came. So sister Tolle told her nurse to come and sit down with us all. So she did... then she started asking questions... then she wanted to know more... then we set up a return appointment... and now she is a pretty solid investigator that wants to learn more. It was so awesome!!!
Once again i just had the greatest experience yesterday. So we have been working with this recent convert and his wife who is already a member. But we are teaching them the lessons again. Yesterday we were talking to them about the Book of Mormon. We were in a members home and the spirit was there so strong. I started to bare testimony of the power of Book of Mormon and as i was baring my testimony i just felt once again the truthfulness and power of the Book of Mormon. It is truly the word of God. I cant even explain the power that book carries. It has changed my life. I could never deny it. I know that is where we can find strength to overcome our challenges we are faced with it is where we find healing through the atonement of Christ and it is where we build a relationship with God that is firm and unshaken. It is all because that book testifies of Jesus Christ. He is our strength if we allow Him to be, He is our healer if we allow Him to be. But it is our choice he cant force it on anyone. But i can testify life is a lot more bearable if we choose to let Him be those things to us. I love this gospel with all my heart and it is what has blessed my family! I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!!
Love your sister Davis :)
