Our Light

Hey ya'll!
It was a great week here in Kentucky! The first couple of days were spent giving trainings at Sister Conference. The first training was on how to change a bike tire, fix the chain, and loosen or tighten the brakes. The Sisters got their hands all greasy in the process. It's good for them all to know since the majority will end up on in a bike area sooner or later. Hopefully I'm one of them cause bikes are legit!
Something that has really stuck out to me this transfer is how the Lord is really hastening His work. There are 70,000 missionaries across the globe! With the Lord hastening His work, he's calling young men and women and also the members. President Woodbury gave a great talk to our Ward last Sunday on having "the faith to put our nets back in the water". There have been discouraging times in the past when friends and family have chosen not to accept the message we share but people are changing everyday. We can do as asked in 1 Peter 3:15 to be ready to "give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you." We are a "peculiar  people" with a unique happiness to us and that only comes through living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have the opportunity to share that light with others.
 I feel so blessed to be able to be doing that 24/7. We taught a new investigator the Plan of Salvation yesterday and said that he would be willing to do anything to be with his son and daughter forever and the whole time we were teaching him, he felt relief. So many are in need of that relief and "know not where to find it" and we can give it to them. Heavenly Father knows who those people are and with diligent prayer and seeking, we'll be led to them and be able to give them what they so desperately need.
Love ya'll! Have a great week!
