What a SUPER Week!

I hope everyone had a SUPER week and a SUPER Sunday yesterday. Things have been SUPER great here!

First off,

My mom sent me a package! Thanks mom! Also, thank you laurels and CTR 6 class of the Canterberry ward for your sweet notes! I feel very blessed to know all of you :)

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Yoghurt- yogurt. (That's how it is spelled here, I'm pretty sure they spell it differently in other countries.) As in, "You can probably thank my choice of yogurt this week for the Broncos' victory in the Superbowl."

Hueso- bone. As in, "That sounds like the prohecy of the dry bones from Ezekiel."
Profecía- prophecy. As in, "In the scriptures we find many prophecies about Jesus Christ and how He has made possible our salvation. When we understand these prophecies and our Heavenly Father's plan for us, we can find great perspective in life.

So on Saturday we were teaching an awesome family of investigators about the Plan of Salvation, and I learned a ton. For example, we were talking about the resurrection and we read from Alma 40:23.
"The soul shall be restored to the body, and the body to the soul; yea, and every limb and joint shall be restored to its body; yea, even a hair of the head shall not be lost; but all things shall be restored to their proper and perfect frame."

They read it, and they all looked at each other like the had some kind of inside joke. But no, they just have an immense knowledge of the Bible. They said, "it's just like the prohecy of the dry bones in Ezekiel." We had no idea what they were talking about. So they showed us Ezekiel 37. The first 15 verses are, indeed, a prophecy about the resurrection. We learned.

Then Sunday we went back to visit that awesome family who we met last week. They're still excited to learn about the Gospel. When we asked how they've felt as they've started praying, they told us about several ways they've recognized answers to their prayers this week. Their six-year-old son got sick this week, and he said that his ear was hurting a lot. So he and his mom said a prayer, and they said that quickly afterward, it didn't hurt him anymore. They also said that they feel a difference in their home when we come to teach them.
I love seeing people recognize the Holy Spirit! It's fantastic!

Lastly, I'd like to share a scripture that I love.

"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nefi 31:20

Go forward with faith! Your Savior loves you! He will help you through everything.

Have a super week!
