Light the World

Hey there! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! We ate sushi with an awesome investigator. It was a good time.

Happy Birthday to my awesome sister, Michelle! Hope you have a great day :)

​Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Sirenita- mermaid. As in, "We did exchanges this week, and the sister I was with showed me this knit thing that her companion has to sleep in. It's practically like a mermaid tail with a blanket attatched to the top to cover the rest of the body. I put it on to be adventurous and it was comfy. The other sister laughed at me though."
Iluminar- light up. As in, "This Christmas, the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles have invited us to tak part in an initiative to light up th world! We can start by following the suggestions they've given on to participate in 25 days of Christlike service during the first 25 days of December. Check it out!"

This week we had a few awesome lessons with our investigator who's getting ready for her baptism next week. We taught her several commandments, but I especially loved when we taught her about tithing. After explaining the principle, she told us that she had a testimony of tithing. For about a month she's been paying her tithing with her boyfriend because his mom had told them that if they paid it, they would have enough money every week. They paid their tithing one week and were out of money when her friend called and asked her to cover her in work for a week. That one week job saved them that week. She is dedicated to keeping the commandments and she recognizes the blessings that come. She's pretty awesome!

We had a super cool activity yesterday in church. We'd done it a few week ago during the week, but pretty much nobody could go because they were working. The young single adults in the ward set up a tour of the Plan of Salvation in th church and the whole ward went through it. They prepared really well and it was a beautiful experience for everyone there. After the tour, our invetigator bore her testimony about the Plan of Salvation. It was beautiful to hear all that she's learned.

"I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12
"Ye are the light of the world." Matthew 5:14
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Check out and get ready to light up the world this week!
Have a great one!
