Even the Little Things

Hi everyone!                                                                                    July 21, 2014

 So, this week was actually...normal? If normal weeks exist on the mission. We spent most of the week trying to find new investigators because our work right now has been with less-active families. Which is awesome but....there are definitely people waiting for us, and waiting for the message that only we can bring! It’s been an uphill climb, for sure.

We´ve been working a lot with Dantas and family! It’s been great! The Stake President has been helping us visit them and we taught an incredible lesson on the gift of the Holy Ghost. How much do I appreciate the gift of the Holy Ghost? Out of all the blessings the Lord could promise during the sacred ordinance of the sacrament, it’s the gift to always have his spirit to be with us. Not forgiveness, not health, not safety, not even eternal life - it’s that we can have his spirit for one more week. And when we choose, actively choose, to disobey EVEN THE LITTLE THINGS, especially the little things, we lose a little bit of the Spirit. Maybe it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it just shows the Lord how little we value the gift he has given us. Think on that.

 So Dantas and the whole family came to church for the SECOND TIME IN A ROW!!!! (....this is the first time in over 5 years. miracles!) And we are going to teach them tonight how to do a family home evening. It’s gonna be great.

Lots of love! Pray for our investigators!
I can just feel it, this next week is gonna be incredible. Stay tuned for more milagres :)
