Ill start with good news!
If you remember several months back I wrote about an elder (Elder Cotton) that went home because he found out he had cancer. The cancer had already spread to all his organs and his chances of making it through were really slim. So our whole mission did a fast for him and this week we received news that he is now cancer free. SO AMAZING! We are all so happy for him and his family. It was a testimony to us that Heavenly Father listens to our fasts and prayers.
There wasn’t too much that happened this week, really. We don’t have a lot of progressing investigators and the work has been a little slow lately. However on Friday we got a call from a member who was preparing a class for Relief Society on Wednesday. She said she needed our help. So we hopped on over there and asked her how she could help. I could tell something was off and she explained that she was having a hard time preparing the lesson. She told us she was worried that she had done something wrong and that she didn’t have the Spirit with her. She said she had been trying to think of what she had done that week and wanted to repent if she had sinned. I immediately remembered my mission president explaining the gift of the Holy Ghost to us and the promise that we are given. So after listening and thinking I just looked her in the eyes and promised her she had the Spirit with her. And of course she did. Anyone that is continually looking to do good and seeks with spirit will have it. Then she just started crying. I could tell she was really relieved and just needed someone to tell her she had the Spirit. That Sunday she gave a great lesson in Relief Society! Funny how sometimes people just need to be reassured of the promises we were already given.

We watched the Joseph Smith movie and its so good! It always amazes me how optimistic Joseph Smith was. Ill bet Christ is like that too. Ill bet you when life gave him lemons he didnt make lemonade or squeeze them in the eyes of his enemies. Ill bet he made lemons bars and offered them to his enemies. because he’s charitable and no one can deny lemon bars.
