G'DAY


G'day!
Word by word I'm starting to say Aussie (meaning like a word a month, so still not much..haha)
Here are some new words for me: ranga, bogan, capsicum.
I LOVE MISSIONARY WORK SO MUCH!!!! This is truly the biggest and coolest blessing ever. 


 I was feeling a little sad this week because D. knows this is the truth, he's just felt so uneasy about baptism. 
 Earlier this week we got to go to the Temple (best ever!!!!) and I was sitting inside and opened up the scriptures and the first verse I looked at was 3 Nephi 11:25. When I read it I felt soooo happy and I just KNEW that he would be baptised!!! It's not if, it's when.
 He's so great though, we were cracking up big time hearing about how he tore it up at the last Young Single Adult Stake dance. hahahaha

A. is pristine and can hardly wait to be baptised this Saturday.
This week we got to teach her children :)) (her 13 and 12 year old kids) We showed them the Restoration DVD and I was a tad worried that her son would get bored and leave or hate it or something (haha he's a funny kid) But as soon as it ended, he matter-of-fact states "That was actually really, really good." The spirit was so strong!! He said that he wants to live like Jesus Christ and be baptised. He's prepping for 8 March. So much joy :) 
D.(a sweet little member of our ward) got baptised this week and it was so so special. I love this family to pieces.

Joseph Smith had a question, and took it to our Father in Heaven.
He received his answer, just as I know that all of us can too.

I have no doubt of the promise in Moroni chapter 10.

3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.
 4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faithin Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
 5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.

Keep finding the good in everything and everyone!!! Love y'all forever and ever!
