Thank you for your letters! They really helped me. Not sure why, but so tired this week.
I've been making No Bake Cookies for people, because we have been having a lot of FHE's or Dinner Appointments with people. We are trying to get the ward to work with us more and do missionary work on their own. So I've been suggesting to people that we get together for a FHE or Dinner and I'll bring a dessert, or teach them how to make Japanese food. Which people have been getting really excited for. Its been really effective so far. Its getting people to open up more and getting excited to work with us later. Also. made Honey Lemon tea for a inactive sister this week. Found out she was sick, and felt we needed to do something for her. However, the only bottle we had was the left over honey jar, which looks like a alcohol bottle. HA HA HA! Gave it to her house help with a note explaining what it was. Hope it helped made her feel better and at least got a laugh out of it.
On Friday, Elder Allen Packer (70 and President Packer's Son) and Elder Nelson (70 and in Area Presidency) came and spoke to us. Talking about the mission goals and where we need to improve on. They had great talks and I'm inspired to improve the weaknesses that I have. One day at a time. Little by little.
D&C 123:16-17 This is Sister Nelson's favorite Scripture. She likes it because it demonstrates that through small adjustments, big changes can occur and put us back on track. Its in our power to DO all we can and do it cheerfully. Then we see the hand of the Lord in our lifes.
Love Ya All!
PS: Sorry its short, trying to post pictures, but its not working. I'll just have to accept that I'm cursed with technology. HA HA HA! Try again next week.
