I love being an instrument for the Lord

It’s been crazzzy! Sister Vangkue was transferred up to San Jose! So we are in a duo now! It is crazy to only be in a duo, because it has been a good 14 weeks of trio life! It is great though! We had some seriously incredible miracles happen this week! Tuesday we needed to get on the military base to meet with our investigator and it was looking like we were not going to be able to get on. So I texted all of our YSA friends and last minute one of them was free! Miracle! So we got on base, and had an amazing lesson! The Sprit was there, we invited her to be baptized and testified of the power of repentance, and she said yes! We were not expecting it, and Sister Berry replied, “wait really?” haha and she was like”ya!” so we set a date! She is super awesome 🙂 We were so excited to see her at church, but she didn’t end up coming sadly. She will be there next week hopefully though!

 That same night we met up with a girl who had watched all of General Conference at the Rehacks house (Brother and Sister Rehack are so so amazing!!! Bro Rehack is in the bishopric) She began telling us her story, how she ended up investigating, and then she proposed a date for her baptism. Again, not even expected!! She had been given a BoM when she was younger by her best friend. She grew up athiest, and then one day she just began reading it. She got online with some questions about Joseph Smith, and then saw a “chat with Mormons” prompt. So she began chatting, didn’t find her answers, tried one more time, and then two missionaries offered to call her and talk to her about it. They gave her the lessons over the phone, she went to church at the military base she was at, and wanted to be baptized. So amazing!!! She has kept in contact with that friend who gave her the BoM and is going to have her skype in for the baptisim. The Lord continues to bless us with miracles as we work! It is so so amazing to see His hand directing His children.

 I am so so amazed at the LOVE that our Heavenly Father has for each of us. He desires us to come to Him!! To feel the miracle of forgiveness and to repent. Because “Repentance is a divine gift, and there should be a smile on our faces when we speak of it. It points us to freedom confidence, and peace. Rather than interrupting the celebration, the gift of repentace is the cause for true celebration.” – Elder Christofferson

I love the Lord. I love that  he has made it possible for us to be freed and feel the peace and hope of the Atonement!!! I am so so grateful to be an instrument in His hands. And thus they were instruments in the hands of God in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth, yea, to the knowledge of their Redeemer. And how blessed are they! For they did publish peace; and they did publish good tidings of good; and they did declare unto the people that the Lord reigneth. Mosiah 27:36-37

 This week I have seen the changes that can happen as we come unto Christ and are healed by Him.  It is so good to help others see that!! 

 You all are so amazing!!!! I love you SOOOOOO much!!! I pray about you and I am so so so grateful for the package!! I love your notes! I love hearing about you!
