Rule 148: Snow is also one of the Devil's tools

February 11, 2015

IT SNOWED!!!!! I got new shoes just in time! Yay for warm feet!

The snow is pretty and all but it makes everyone cancel on us and not come to church. Regardless, we had a pretty great week! 

Our ward mission leader gave us a family to contact that used to take lessons from the missionararies. We have been trying to find them for a while.  We didn't have their phone number so all we could do is pass by their home. One morning our appointment fell through and I really felt like we needed to go try this family again. We had the opportunity to go to another investigator's home or try this family again. We chose to try the family. We didn't know which doorbell was their's but after trying a few we think we figured it out. When we rang the bell we thought was their's the lady we talked to said they weren't home. We started to walk to the bus stop. Then a lady ran up behind us and said she was the woman we were looking for. She remember the past missionaries and was excited to have us over again! I am thankful the Spirit led us to find this family again. 

A friend sent me this quote this week.  'I didn't know what love was until I went on my mission.' It so true! Sorella Hogan and I are having a hard time finding investigators who will progress in the gospel here in Bologna. Despite this we both feel such a love for this people and for this city.  It doesn't really make sense, but I think we have a little of what our Savior feels for us. You want this so bad for this people and when they reject it you hurt!  Not because you lost a chance for a future baptism, but you hurt because you know they are missing a chance to find their Savior. The Savior is the whole purpose of why we are here. This Gospel has a lot to it: Joseph Smith, living prophets, the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, temples, Word of Wisdom, family history but all this points to the Savior. I think we get distracted sometimes. Whenever we get overwhelmed I think it helps to just think of one thing. The Savior. Like in primary when the answer is always Jesus :) He really is always the answer! 

Remeber Him :)
