First of all, Sunday was fantastic, probably one of my favorites! It was our Ward conference, so our stake leaders came. Our Ward choir sang, and even though they were not all singing quite on key, I could feel the power of it, and the spirit was very strong. The talks were also fantastic, but my favorite part was primary. Hermana Riddle had to play the piano, so we got to sit in on sharing time for two hours.You really can sense just how pure children really are, no wonder Jesus commands us to be as little children. Every prayer that they said was strait from their heart, and they really do know so much about the gospel. At the very end, the stake primary president came in to teach. She doesn't speak any Spanish, but she translated her testimony into Spanish and bore it the best she could. It brought her to tears and the spirit was so strong there as well. I love the
gospel, because it is the same and has the same power all over the
world, no matter what language you speak.
To top it all off, Sunday was also the day the new Easter Video came out. It is pretty great! I love the scripture it uses that says, "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." -1 Corinthians 15:22. Nobody that we have lost because of death is actually lost. Life never ends thanks to Christ, and thanks to Christ, we can live with the people we love for eternity! I hope that we can remember Christ just a little bit more this Easter season. Watch the video if you haven't already. #Hallelujah
Right now, unfortunately, it seems that most of our investigators and new members are getting hit pretty hard by Satan. Many that used to be progressing are going though hard times right now. The good news is that Satan never wins! They will push through. Just keep them in your prayers!
Okay, now to the 7 fire trucks story...we had just left our last appointment of the day and we were about to go home. Right as we were about to pull out of our parking spot, three fire trucks come barreling in right in front of us! One almost hit us! The next few trucks came in and one of them parked right in front of us! Are you serious!? We experience the funniest things as missionaries. Here we are stuck behind a parked fire truck at night, right as we were about to leave! A few more trucks came in along with a few ambulances. We got to watch how the fire fighters attach the hose to the fire hydrants. We had to wait there for a while, but fortunately there were so many people to take care of the situation, that it didn't take too long for someone to notice we were stuck and to move the truck.
Pretty great week, can't wait for another one!
Ashley sent photos of all the Hermanas at a fun activity. They are all so cute! Click on the "photos" to see the other pics. She also sent a photo of her apartment complex with all the blossoms in full bloom! Park City isn't that lucky yet and it's still snowing! Until next week!
