Wow! It's been a good week! There have been many miracles!
On Tuesday, we went to the temple and I had an amazing experience. It wasn't anything special, but just being able to feel the peace that is there was enough. I love going to the temple. The spirit is so strong and you can truly focus on Heavenly Father. It helped get my mind into that eternal perspective I've been looking for. Trials are just a small moment in an eternity of happiness. I've learned that a lot over the past couple of months. I feel like I'm beginning to be myself again. I'm excited to get to work in the morning and excited to teach these people. It's a wonder feeling.
The work is progressing! It wasn't easy but it was rewarding. First off, a part member family we are working with came to church yesterday. I was so excited to see them there. They seemed to enjoy it and stayed for the whole three hours. It was definitely a miracle. We taught them on Friday about Jesus Christ and who He is to us. I think I learned more in that lesson than they did. It was amazing!
We have met several times with Duane this week. He is preparing for his baptism on March 21st. He seems excited.
On Thursday, we had Zone Conference. We built a tower for King Benjamin out of Red Solo cups, had a traffic jam, watched the Assistants and Sister Training Leaders demonstrate the worst companionship inventories I've ever seen, and learned about grace. It was a lot of fun and I loved every minute of it!
This week I've been studying about the Atonement. I've learned that the atonement is not only for the worst of times. It's for the best of times too. The atonement is not only for the wicked, but for the righteous. The atonement not only takes us from bad to good, but from good to better. We all need the Atonement in our lives. We could all be doing a little bit better.
I love you all and hope that you have had a great week!
