Hi friends and family,
The schools in the area were on spring break so a lot of people were out of town. So somewhat of a slower week, but we ran into many people that have Hawai'i ties.
We had a lesson with our investigator and invited him to church. He didn't make it because he was sick, BUT his wife who is less active came and brought their kids! It was truly a miracle! We sat with her and her neighbors who are awesome! They said they've invited them to church and activities for the last FOUR years and they haven't come but yesterday they CAME! It was awesome and she stayed for all 3 hours!
Being on a mission during Easter has really opened my eyes to the love my Savior and His great sacrifice. That video I shared last week, (http://easter.mormon.org) we shared it all week long with EVERYONE we met. And every time I watched it I got teary eyed. Because of Him, death is not the end, we have second chances, new beginnings, clean slates, we can start over again, again and again. Such a powerful message displayed in less than 3 minutes. If you haven't watched it, WATCH IT!
May you all have a blessed week and find a way to service someone. Be more loving, more giving, more kind.
Mom, have a happy birthday! I'll be thinking of you on Friday!
