Hello hello hello!! 

T'was a good week again!!! 
I will have to be quick today, but here's a few highlights from our fantastical, fun, fantabulous week! :) 

We got to go on exchanges this week with Sister Mower and Sister Collard who are serving in Plainfield right now! Exchanges have changed so that the sisters both come to our area now! We call it "blitzing". It was so much fun to bring them both to campus. We were able to teach/find and get a lot done....maybe we should bring 4 sisters to campus all the time;) But it was great and these sisters always teach me soooooo much! They are amazing!

We taught D_____ about the Book of Mormon this week and had the coolest experience with it. We have been teaching D_____ for a while, and each time he comes, he hasn't retained anything haha but he is in the process of becoming a member of another church, and is always be super happy to meet up with us, so of course, we do:) So this time we reealllyyy didn't want to teach the restoration to him for the 5th time...but felt like we should just go over the Book of Mormon more and read from it with him. SCRIPTURE POWER...once we started talking about was as if he had heard the coolest news in the world and his whole demeanor changed. He asked to read it, and was marking phrases the entire time haha:) Does the Book of Mormon hold power? Why yes, yes it does!!! Amazing to hear President Monson testify of that too!! Sometimes I think it is one of the biggest things we take for granted...but it is one of the biggest blessings we have!!

Update on the three amigos!! 
M_____ is on fire!! This week we taught him twice, and he came to church. We taught him the Plan of Salvation and as we were leaving, he looks up in the sky, sees the moon and says, "Look! The Terrestrial Kingdom!!" He also sends us texts all the time talking about how cool the Book of Mormon is, and how awesome he feels as he's been learning! This guy is on fire....we joke all the time that April 29th is just too far away and that he could be baptized today:) Cool to watch him grow!! 

Z___ and J___ are also doing super awesome! They had lots of questions about prophets and authority after conference last week, so we spent some time in the scriptures and then watched The Restoration video. The spirit was extremely strong and they really made the connection to Joseph Smith. It's just crazy to see how much desire they have!!! 

If you haven't seen the #PRINCEofPEACE video(s) yet, give them a watch...they are sooooo powerful...and motivational. They even motivated us to go all over campus, passing out #PRINCEofPEACE cards to anyone we passed, and secretly placing them in people's bags when they weren't looking....see? Super you really wanna go watch it huh? and repeat:) 

Pick up from last week...ready to hear about A___'s cool experience with prayer??? ITS A GOOD ONE! Soooo she has been having some really hard times this week and last, so for her prayer, she was just explaining allllll her feelings to Heavenly Father and just really talking to him. As she closed and started falling asleep for the night, she heard her phone go off...someone was calling her. So she got up to see who it was, and it was SISTER ELLIS (the first missionary who she met and talked to about the gospel in AZ) She said she felt like calling her and they were able to talk about all the things going on in A___'s life right now. Talk about Heavenly Father working through His children right? AMAZING!! :) 

SO it wasss a good week! And another one to come because's EASTER TIME!! I am just so grateful for my Savior. I know that no matter what life is throwing your direction right now, if you are founded on Jesus Christ and living His gospel, you will not be dragged down. 
"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty stormshall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." ~Helaman 5:12
Have a happy week!!
Love, Sister Burgon*
