Sunday was awesome in our little Idyllwild branch! Here are some snippets:
"You don't find time....because you'll never find it. You MAKE time to search the scriptures."
"You can't control what thoughts come into your head but you can control how long they stay there."
"You ARE your brother's keep and it is your obligation to strengthen them." (during lesson on Cain and Abel)
WE HAD THREE SPANISH LESSONS!!!! So we have two spanish families in our Anza branch and we got to do home visits with them and it was SO refreshing. We also picked up a Spanish investigator!!!!! Maria is the sister of one of the members we did the home visits with. We had tried by Maria like a week ago after Sister Ruggles, who served here, referred her to us. No luck. We went by again, and guess who just so happened to be there? Her sister Olga. So our first lesson with her was a member present, which is the best. Plus, we are finally going to be able to teach that family over in Idyllwild this week!!! We stopped by her on Sunday and JUST SO HAPPENED to get there right as she was coming home. Her son is having surgery today so she will be home all week and said she would love for us to come! She has already read the witnesses in the Book of Mormon and I invited her to read the first chapter of Nephi before we come! spanish is truly popping up here....Spanish branch here we come!!!!
Samantha is still perfect and George is off the radar because one of his family members passed away....so keep him in your prayers please!
The rest of the transfer is going to fly by even faster than it already has....temple trip, Samantha's baptism, two missionary farewells, Half-Mission activity, Multi-Zones, interviews, two exchanges, Sister Bryant's birthday......when are we even going to find time to teach?
Thank heavens for grace.
I love y'all so much!
Long seeking days calls for Frazils. Always.
I was going to explain the rest of my title but it just wasn't working....sorry for the cliffhanger.
