Oh I love life! Life is beautiful! The gospel of Jesus Christ brings light and love to my soul.

Exchanges in Elthem

Sister Ver. has joined our companionship and is such a blessing to me. It has been further verification that Heavenly Father is aware of me, and knows exactly what I need. This week we had an Family Home Evening with the Per/ family and Ana was there!!! She shared her conversation story and talked about gaining a testimony of the book of Mormon, they key was prayer. she would pray before she opened the book, during and after. Through prayer she received revelation that the words that made her heart feel peace were TRUE. She was able to attend the temple and said she never wanted to leave. It was such a happy night :)
later in the week we were on exchanges and i was in Churchill Park with sister going....we had a dinner with the C's and Dan. was there! He is about to build a house and things are well in his life...his family now knows that he's a member! He said that he has had the brief thought of going on a mission....I could cry just thinking about it. 

I had the privilege later of going on exchanges with Sister K. in Elthem. What a unique, lovely place! Sister K. and I clicked instantly and  we saw miracle after miracle. We were able to teach that lady A. that I sent you the pic of. She arrives at that cafe early every morning and stays there till night. Everyday! We now know where to find her! 
 We taught a Saudi Arabian man named Moham. about Jesus Christ and His life. He asked such sincere questions and the spirit was so strong. He mostly reads Arabic and soaks in all the pamphlets that the missionaries have given him and keeps a study journal of questions to ask. He was enthralled as we told him that like Jesus Christ, we too will be resurrected someday and have perfected, gloried bodies. Such a beautiful truth!

We were able to have a dinner with the St. family and S. D.  and her brothers who aren't members came..after dinner, Brother St. played hymns on his guitar and we all sat around with hymn books and sang, it was such a great experience for everyone and the D. kids all came to the stake dance performance the next night....members make all the difference! Have you had the missionaries investigators over recently? :)

Yesterday we visited a lady in the hospital...she was very ill and drained emotionally. We sang primary songs to her and spirit was so strong and she had tears in her eyes. Heavenly Father loves His children so much....He often uses us as instruments to help them feel love. YOU, my lovely family, are instruments for Him. Keep showing love and kindness to all you meet. 

We organised a P-Day for today with all the sisters in the mission. We're tie dying shirts and are all bringing foods from our country/culture. I have American hot dogs and ketchup...haha 
I get to do an exchange in the city this week! Aiden is getting baptised on Saturday and we are also going to the Temple! One of Sis W. and Sis v's friends that they helped bring back to church is going through the Temple! Transfer news is that day too.

I am so grateful for what my mission is teaching me about love. Charity NEVER faileth
D&C 88:125
And above all things, clothe yourselves with the bond of charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond of perfectness and peace.

I love you so much and am so thankful for your prayers. Families are FOREVER! 

Love you so much!
Sister Stevenson
