Week 6 and Miracles

Kia Ora America! 

This week has been so quick, i know every missionary says that but i'm serious i feel like someone is playing a joke on me and has stolen days out of the week or something. It's already week 6 of this transfer. i literally feel like i was just emailing you about Sister Lualua and training and it's been a whole transfer now! MAN! But week 6 always brings miracles and i love it! 

We have Patrick and Tara's baptism this week and they are so excited! I asked Patrick, who is 8, if he was excited and he looked at me and shrugged and said "it'll just mean i'll have to start repenting" it was SOO funny. He is so cheeky it's adorable. So we're all very excited! And their dad is so pumped to baptize his kids. On Sunday he told us his story that brought him back to coming back to church and it was so amazing to see how much he has changed and how he has so much trust in the Lord. It was because he felt prompted to say a prayer and now, after 20 years of being gone, he's baptizing his kids and going to the temple again. Guys, this church is so cool! And the blessings that we receive when we follow promptings are beautiful. PEOPLE, Heavenly Father is SO mindful of all of us. Even when we leave church and think we're never coming back Heavenly Father has His hand in our lives. And then when we  realize He is a part of our lives and recognize Him and thank Him even more blessings come.

So moral of the story: Recognize Heavenly Father in your lives and things will work out. Life will be good and you will be happy (or happier) we meet so many people or are already happy without The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints  but then we see how much happier they are when they have it in their lives and i just know it's because they have that extra boost that knowledge that they are children of Heavenly Father and that they can return to be with Him again with their families. Who wouldn't be happy about that? 

The Plan of Salvation has been on my mind so much these past couple weeks and i'm just SOOOO glad that Heavenly Father has given us this plan. That we have this knowledge that we can be with our Saviour again. With our Father in Heaven and with our loved ones after this life. I'm so happy that I get to be with all of you nuggets for eternity. That i get to see Papa again and all of my loved ones who have passed on. They are there waiting for us and rooting us on so that we can be with them again. 

and so do I
Live Long and Prosper
