Week #45

Dearest Family and Friends,
This week was a wild and wet one, very wet. I feel like the earth is once again being flooded. Every street is literally underwater and it's very fun to bike through. I want to give a shout out to all the mothers out there and for all you do. My mother in particular who is just amazing in every way and is the glue of our family!
This week was good one. One of the greatest miracles was our investigator Anna who is just progressing at light speed. She said she is basically ready to get baptized right now. It has been a huge miracle for us and I know she will be a huge support for the branch. We had a mothers day activity on Saturday night which turned into the members singing karaoke to old time blues and country music (super random) but it was super super funny.
Scripture of the week is 3 Nephi 24:2-3
 But who may abide the day of his coming, and who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap.  And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.
To refine is defined as is to purify while making small changes and a fuller is someone who's job was to wash clothes to make them white and pure. THIS IS THE ROLE OF THE SAVIOR. Christ, our captain, His number one goal and purpose was to bring to pass the atonement to allow us to refine our weaknesses and cleanse our sins. I am so grateful for that because refining is a process, not a one time thing. It is small changes here and there to ultimately becoming a saint through the Atonement of Christ. I love you all so much and have a wonderful week!
-Elder Lewis
