This was quite a good week. It's odd because we didn't get nearly as much finding time as we would have liked because we were teaching a lot and doing service and other things but we still feel good about our week. Quite a few miracles though!
So, to start Anqunette is amazing. We taught her a few more times and she is liking and understanding everything and she even came to church! It was wonderful because we did nothing to get her to church except invite her. A member texted her and offered a ride and then took care of her and her kids during church. Literally all that we did was shake her hand I say hi. It was perfect. We also went to a member’s home for dinner on Friday and they teach the Gospel Principles class. She asked what she should teach and we gave her a few choices to pray over. She chose the Priesthood and after church when we asked Anqunette what she thought she mentioned that the class helped her to understand the things she didn't quite get yet! She is also planning on going to a Relief Society activity this Thursday. Things are almost going too well. It's great.
We also got two referrals from members this week! We were having dinner with a family and felt like sharing the Easter video and just simply asking them if there is anyone they could share the video with and if there was anyone that we could share it with. Our luck turned out and two families were at the house. The family who signed up didn't have anyone in mind for us but the other family did. They ended up being able to set up a time for us to go show the video and share a message about Christ!
There is also a brother who just came back from his mission last week and it so cool to have someone who is super pumped to do Missionary work in a Ward. He is inviting all of his friends to everything and coming out with us and he teaches well and fellowships well. It's awesome.
Things are really starting to step up here in Normal. You might say that things are not so normal anymore. Sorry, I had to.
I would like to end with my testimony of Jesus Christ. This week is a great week to remember our dear Savior because next Sunday is Easter. My thoughts turn to his last week in mortality where he accomplished all that His father had in store for him. He suffered for us, died for us, and rose again for us. Because of His resurrection we have no reason to fear death. Because of His endless Atonement we have no reason to fear sin or pain. All things are made right through Jesus Christ. I know it, I've felt it, I've seen its effects in people's lives. My dearest friends and family, please do not let anything get in the way of your following the Savior with all of your heart, might, mind, and strength. He will bring peace to your life. I promise you this. Helaman 5:12 states; "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." I love you all!
