"read with an intent to know" - week 15

(written July 13, 2015)

 first off you don't look like you don't like the motorcycle in the picture that's all i gotta say. naha that's awesome boo is famous!! i did get your package so thanks!! we will see how quickly it gets here i am excited:) and thanks so much for sending all that stuff i felt bad for asking lol

yeah we" met the president it was so awesome he is like so crazy nice and loving its awesome!!  i know but Kevin has like 3 cats so we thought he could use another one lol he is cool we actually gave him a brochure and stuff but he's not to interested we've made it a goal to get him to Church lol well have to get to know him a little more he just usually isn't home during the day so we don't see him to often. Sonia did not get baptized sorry i forgot to tell you i for some reason just think you already know lol but here is a little story when we read the book of mormon we always tell people to read with true intent like it says moroni 10:3 4 5 and to pray to know if it true. that true and real intent is SO IMPORTANT because she read it and loved it loved anything about it but when we asked how she felt about it she would answer and change the subject. when you read to acquire the knowledge of something that's awesome but to read with an intent to know if these things are true and to know if they come from god and pray and ask god if they are true is when you feel the truthfulness of our message. sœur banks and i had the impression that sonia was praying and reading and had that desire. she told us recently she didnt think she had to prey to know if it was true but if it made sense then it is true. i was reading this morning in 2 nephi about how when we put our trust in god and ask him if these things are true then he helps us out but when we put trust in ourselves and trust in our own minds nothing will happen we don't gain anything because we need god and we need that holy ghost to confirm these things we read as well as teach us new things. sonia said she's not sure she wants to see us anymore but were going to continue working with her and see what happens. but yeah we've got a font!! we had a baptism a few weeks ago and we did it at the chapel! loic and katcia are awesome!! they came to Church this sunday and were there and they didn't know which room to go into because Church already started and its different here its not like we have couches like in the States so anyway they just didn't know what room to go into and they left... they tried calling us but sœur banks turned off the phone cuz its sacrament and stuff they said they'll come next week though!! so stoked.

My companion is amazing as always we have become very good friends and she is so hard working its amazing and i honestly really look up to her she is such a good teacher and know how to follow the spirit in the lessons i am blessed to be with her. My testimony grows more and more everyday its truly amazing this last week has been rough i was getting frustrated with the language to be honest and in our lessons i would get frustrated when i couldn't understand what was being said and the second i would do that it just would get worse i decided to do a new thing instead of sit in frustration which just sounds silly that i would even do that in the first place now but i would just start to pray for my companion for the inspiration and for the spirit to be there the second i started doing that it was like a light switch in my heart i immediately felt better and i could feel the spirit very strong. we ended up having an awesome lesson sœur banks got teary and our investigator asked us if he could come to Church! it was a humbling experience and just a testimony that when we pray and ask and put faith in our heavenly father he is truly there for us. This week we helped an older woman rake up leaves we taught her while we were helping she said she wanted us to come over and teach her and her son service is the best!! hope you have a good week!
