We bought ourselves pizza this week. Best choice always.
Our investigators are doing really well. Every lesson with them is really uplifting and they are just so positive! This week, they told us that they see us as angels that were sent to their door to teach them about the gospel :) They make us so so so happy. The only hard part is getting them to church, so we're working on that.
Our other investigator is always so fun. She and her husband are really open, and she seems to unexpectedly make us a ton of spicy rice every time we go over. Her nephew, was teaching us some words in pidgin english, (which I don't remember anything of) and she heard him and yelled "Why you speaking pidgin english?' in her awesome Nigerian accent. It was funny.
But we had a lesson about Jesus Christ. I think that He is my favorite topic to testify about. The spirit was really strong, and it was cool to see her husband opening up and feeling the spirit.
I had a really really cool experience at sacrament meeting yesterday. I was just thinking about a lot of things and at one point during the passing of the bread, I thought of the first time Marjan took the sacrament after her baptism. She was brought to tears because it just meant so much to her to finally be able to partake. That image comes to my mind often during sacrament meetings, and I think to myself about how I can make the sacrament that meaningful every week. That thought combined with some other things that had been going through my mind made me recognize a regret I have had for years now that I hadn't given to my Savior to heal me. I had been holding onto the hurt and the disappointment I felt over something I had failed to do, and I hadn't turned to Him yet to heal me from it.
We had watched "Because of Him" with this couple the day before, and the specific part where it says, "regret turns to relief' flashed through my mind. I felt literally a relief come over me and it was just such a special experience. I am so grateful for the healing power of my Savior and that I know in whom I can trust.
It was the first time that I've really had that type of experience with the sacrament. And the rest of church was all about the Savior and it was just super "coincidental" and cool and stuff :)
I love you guys,
hope you have a good week and remember to give everything that is hard to Him and He will help you. He wants to help you.
