Talk about a confidence booster. In a moment of weakness, the Lord wanted to remind me that He is proud of me. He knows! He knows us perfectly!! Act on the promptings you receive, thats all I gotta say.
Man I'm getting converted.
Brother Hansen finally came back this week!!! We missed him. He is so weird, it is so fun. He was on a cruise with his wife to Mexico. Brother Bell has also been coming in a lot more lately, so that makes us happy. We love our teachers. Like... most everyone doesn't like going to class, but we absolutely love it, because we're actually friends with our teachers. I'll try and send some pictures so you can get a face with the names. Unless you already have them. I don't even remember anymore. Haha.
Also, we love Brother Freeman. He has recently become a new investigator for us and he is Valentino's Uncle? And so we call him "Uncle Freeman". The other day, SK accidentally called him "Uncle Freedom". Why is it so funny? We have no idea. We played a game the other night called "psyhciatrist" where one person left the room, the rest decided what the grammar problem would be, and the other person would come back and ask us questions to figure out what our issue was. So Brother Freeman decided that we would pronounce all of our "a's" SUPER american. So instead of pronouncing "Svaka Cast" like "Svahka Chahst" it would be "SVAKA CHAST." And we're still dying from that. I LOVE THEM.
Elder Brown is so funny. We made him come to the gym we go to, where there are weights. And he started with "fivers" and lifting them like they were the heaviest things in the world. And we walked away, distracted with something else. But apparently, then he actually tried to lift weights, and the next night he told us he was thinking to himself 'Man this is probably too much... it's fine... just keep going.' But like... he, couldn't use his arms the next day. hahahahahah. So funny. He is our best friend. And apparently his visa is delayed! Most of the times, in our zone, they come in right before they leave? so HOPEFULLY all will be well. We can't travel to Europe without the TRICYCLE.
Also I'm sorry I'm lame and I'm pretty sure all I ever write about is faith.
So, in general, fear is the antonym of faith. It says in the Bible Dictionary that fear is unworthy of a child of God. Also, the first effect of Adam's transgression was the he was afraid. Faith cannot exist with fear. When we are afraid of men, or life, or death, or anything! We are not living up to the way God would have us live. Again, in the BD, it says that "The Lord has revealed Himself and His perfect character... so as to enable the mind of the man to place confidence in Him without reservation." We should not doubt!! We should not be afraid!! Christ has revealed Himself so that we DON'T have to be afraid!! Have faith!! Lift up your hearts and rejoice!! Christ is our Master, and he is leading us today. Trust him. Have faith. Be a child of God, and represent Him.
After the incredible blessing I got from Elder Brown where he LITERALLY answered SPECIFIC questions I had asked in my prayer just that morning, I felt great. I shared that story with Sestra Kropushek and him and we just cried and talked about how incredible the Priesthood is. it was amazing. it was such a spiritual experience for us. #tearsforever
Anyway, I don't know what more to say!! All of these days just blur together.. I should probably start bringing my journal along... that would be good. P days are soo stressful. Mostly, just the hour of email time. #PRESSURE.
I love you all so much :)
TRAVEL PLANS. TWO DAYS. CAN'T BELIEVE IT.
