I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. Our friend Mel invited us over for fried tacos! Very different for Thanksgiving, but they were really good.
We met a few people this week who are so genuine and so hungry spiritually. It reminded me of the scripture (D&C 123:12-13) that says "they are kept from the truth because they know not where to find it" and that we should "wear out our lives in bringing to light all hidden things of darkness, wherin we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven." One of these, Dan, has been seeking. As we were able to share with him the message that Jesus Christ's gospel has been restored to the earth through living prophets, and as he learned in church yesterday, his countenance changed. He said it was refreshing to hear that after this life those who have passed away without the opportunity will have the opportunity to accept the Savior's Atonement. Amazing. I love seeing people taste the fruit of the gospel for the first time.
We had a pretty good week as far as teaching goes. Thursday was a little slow, but Saturday was fantastic! We were busy all day. Monday we had a zone meeting.
We are so excited for #LIGHTtheWORLD ! It's a Christmas advent calendar, but instead of taking out a little chocolate (or whatever), there will be a world wide opportunity to serve for the first 25 days in December. (Example: Jesus fed the hungry, so can you! Invite a neighbor to dinner or donate to a food bank). It's going to be a great way to reach out to others and feel the Spirit of Christ this Christmas. The calendar is on mormon.org if you want to do it with me!
Have a great week!
