Hey Friends and Family!
Well this week, Sister P and I worked harder than we ever have in our entire lives! Wetaught 12 member present lessons, 8 less active member lessons, we have a baptismal date and we had people attend church. Behind every number is a person coming closer to Christ so we feel pretty good about it. But now we are both kind of sick!
Our baptismal date is a 7 ,almost 8, year old who is getting baptized in April. Heavenly Father always blesses for hard work! In all aspects of life. On Sunday someone said, "work so that there is something for God to help you with." I love that!
Well something I have taught people this week is what God's purpose is. Do you know what God's purpose is?
In John 3:16 it tells us. "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." He loves us so He sent His Son so that we can be saved. He wants us to return to live with Him again. That is also the purpose of Christ is to prepare a way to us return to live with God again. So cool! I ove the scriputres, now we know the purpose of God is for us to have Eternal life.
Our investigator Joel told us a story about a time in his life when he was really depressed. He had just gone through a divorce and he was homelss he had 2 teenage daughters. He was praying to God for help because he had no one else to turn to. After he prayed he got on the elevator in the motel and he saw a penny that said "good" on one side and "luck" on the other. He was like,"really God, a penny? not a 100 dollar bill or something?" He was wanting to end his life but this penny helped him know God heard his prayer. Then when he got back to his room, he found out that his daughter was the one who wrote on the penny and dropped it in the elevator. There are two ways to look at this. God is real and He answered his prayer through someone else. Or it was a coincidence. Well I choose to believe it was God and I know we can see God everyday in our lives when we choose to!
Well its been in the 80's and 90's here is California. So funny:) Have a good week everyone! Thank you for all the birthday wishes!!
