Highlights of the Week!

This week was MIRACULOUS!!!!!!! :) 

We got to go to the temple today and it was so neat. I love going to the temple and learning more about God's plan for His children!
Here is an update on some of our investigators: 

Luana: SHE IS DOING SO GREAT!! We went over for a lesson on Saturday and taught her about the Restoration and the spirit was so strong!! We talked a lot about God's love and she told us that lately she has really been able to feel of God's love. She started to cry and she testified to us that she knew God led her down this path and how she feels the goodness of it. We invited her to be baptized on February 19th and she gladly accepted and told us how she would do anything to be able to be baptized. She told us how going to church comforts her heart. It was so sweet. Something that really hit me while we were teaching was how we are able to feel the power of God's love through the Restoration and through teaching about it. The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about the love God has for us. I am so grateful Luana was able to feel of that love. 

We met with her again yesterday and oh my goodness she is the most dedicated and willing person I have ever met. We originally planed to teach her about the Plan of Salvation, but when we got over there, she immediately opened up to us and told us how she has been praying to know what she can do to show her love for God more. She said she has been trying to keep the 10 Commandments but she felt like there was more she could be doing to prepare for her baptism. Our jaws just about dropped to the floor! It gave us the perfect opportunity to teach her about all the commandments including the Law of Chastity and Word of Wisdom!!! She said it was going to be hard but that she was willing to do anything for God. It is so cool how God works and how He was preparing Luana to follow His commandments! It was really cool how her questions guided the lesson. Her testimony was so special, she testified that she knew this was true and that this was the right way for her. She told us that that morning she was reading in the Book of Mormon and then two doves came by her window! She said she considered it a sign from God! Luana is seriously a walking miracle. She is a huge example to me of someone who lives on faith. She is amazing and has changed my life. I know God has been preparing her for a very long time and I feel so lucky and blessed to help in her conversion! I love her so much!

Mary Clare: She is doing amazing and is so excited for her baptism on Sunday! She is all set and ready to go! Her mom came to church with all of us on Sunday to see what we were all about and had a complete change of heart. So a little back ground on Mary Clare's family: they are ALL anti-Mormon and do not support Mary Clare getting baptized at all. Mary Clare is so strong though and she knows this is what she needs to do.  So her mom came to church with us on Sunday and she had a complete change of heart. The mom told us how it was not how she thought it was and how she just loved every second of it. It was so sweet! The mom said she would come to the baptism! IT WAS A MIRACLE! :)

Love you all! Have a great week!!
