It was a pretty average week this week. The usual. Knocking and trying to find new people to teach! Our teaching pool has shrunk quite a bit with everybody dropping us, but we're doing our best to find the elect! We went by the Carters and sticky-noted their door with scriptures and uplifting notes hoping to let her know we still care and we're still here for her but we haven't heard from her and she didn't answer Bishop's or their friend's calls either. So. We will likely be going to Jeremy's memorial service in a couple weeks so if nothing else we'll talk to her there.
Our ward mission leader is being released so we've lost contact with him but thankfully his assistant is super awesome and helps us so much. Blessings!
Friday night was a ward party themed "medieval dinner" with only finger foods and jousting competitions and such, it was super fun! it's nice to experience something a little different :)
Last night we went up to Hoodsport to visit a recent convert Ernie (he's the greatest) and he invited his friend over and we had a little dinner together and watched the super moon/blood moon. It was way cold but way awesome! It's definitely fall.. it's pretty darn cold all the sudden. Love it!
The Women's Conference on Saturday night was so good and (as usual) came at a perfect time. Some of my favorite parts:
- Once you see the divinity within yourself, it will be easier to see it in others- “I do not know why we have the many trials that we have, but it is my personal feeling, that the reward is so great, so eternal and everlasting, so joyful and beyond our understanding that in that day of reward, we may feel to say to our merciful, loving Father, ‘Was that all that was required?’”
- ‘this life is the time … to prepare to meet God,’ not to receive all of our blessings.
-We don’t know everything. We don’t know why bad things happen. We don’t know which promises will be fulfilled here on earth and which will be granted in heaven. But we do know that “men [and women] are, that they might have joy” (2 Nephi 2:25). God didn’t design us to be sad.
-Happiness comes as we trust God and see our blessings, even in the middle of our storms. Joy comes as we see the good in others and ourselves. Peace comes as we look through God’s window and not just at our own mirror. Trust in God and believe in good things to come :)
God loves us. Inspiration is real. I love you all so much and hope you're having a wonderful Monday! Thanks for all you do!
