t'was a great one this week...The work just reeeeallllyyy progressed and the sun was out and miracles happened...and it went by sooooo fast. My my my. We got transfer calls and found out that I will be getting a new companion, Sister Gray! :)
For da work: Remember that really cool mormon message where one young man joins the church and then invites his friend who ends up joining the church too? And then he invites his friends who joins and brings another friend...and pretty soon, a whole big group of friends were strong memebers of the church. WELL we are miraculously seeing that here too! E ___, a recent convert, has 3 super close friends who have all started taking the lessons from us. Not only that, but they are searrcchhiinngg, all in their own way. It's been the coolest thing to watch them all be prepared over time, and then all of them start being taught more regularly this week. Just the thought of all of them being taught and the potential they have has made us so happy. Their names are J ___, Z ___ and M_____. Stay tuned:)
We also had the opportunity to go to Zone Conference and learn from the AP's and President and Sister Carlson. How cool is this: Prayer really is the way to unlock the powers of Heaven in our lives...and this is why. When we pray, we are talking to Heavenly Father: -GOD. We close by saying, "In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." -JESUS CHRIST. And we sit and wait and listen and seek inspiration from the Spirit. -THE HOLY GHOST. So you are involving and conversing with the entire Godhead when you are praying. There is a reason that prayer is the answer to everything:) coooooool.
We also got to go to the Recent-Convert Temple baptism day for the mission and every time I go I just feel so blessed. ALSO getting super excited for General Conference....THIS WEEK ERYBODY!! Its so close!! :)
I heard a scripture that President Carlson mentioned and it applied really well to the time that I have left here and the things that I would like to accomplish.
"Say not ye, There are yet four months, and cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together."
Pretty cool stuff! I love you all, thanks for the love and support. THIS IS THE WORK OF THE LORD. :) Ain't it great?
Love, Sister Burgon*
