"we hope in Jesus Christ, in the goodness of god. Because God has been faithful and kept his promises in the past, we can hope with confidence that god will keep his promises to us in the present and in the future. In times of distress, we can hold tightly to the hope that things will work together for our own good"- President dieter f. uchtdorf
Well this week has been a great one. We are teaching a lot of natives and its amazing to testify to them that the Book of Mormon was written to them by their ancestors. My navajo is going well still learning, they say it is the hardest language to learn but i know with the Lord all things are possible.
This Sunday was fast Sunday and for the very first time our recent convert the Woman we taught went up a bored her testimony. It was the most powerful testimony that i have heard she knows that this church is the church of God and that's it is the only true one. As a missionary its a privilege to be able to wittiness someone that we taught so strong and Wanting to go to the temple. I remember as she was walking up to share her testimony, i couldn't help but cry as i felt the tears going down my cheek i knew that if i wasn't on my mission who knows if she would have been baptized. i know that there are certain people that heavenly father has place in our paths to help and teach them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This woman is amazing and her faith is unshakable.
This week was also the 4th of July. In my area Blanding they celebrate the 4th of July like no other. The parade was amazing and seeing so many families come in unity was awesome. We got to talk to a lot of people and though being exhausted we still went out to work and i know that heavenly father blessed us that day with unplanned opportunities and that was a tender Mercie of the lord.
