Dearest Family and Friends,I hope that everyone had a good week because we did! This week was awesome. We are just working as hard as we possibly can to try and re-spark this area and we've found a lot of success in talking to everyone and stressing the importance of families. It's something that I am just barely starting to understand and that is the importance of families in salvation. I know that as we have been praying to find families we've been finding them. We had a super awesome success this week with a less active member named Avien. He came to church for the first time and loved it. It was such an awesome miracle. Also with our investigators and Mieto and Marchinie we had kind of a drop-in lesson with them and talked about keeping the commandments and committed them to talk together and make plans to be married and baptized.
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
How powerful of a phrase? Are we doing these exact things? I know that we have all, in one way or another, been hungry, poor, naked and thirsty. These can mean temporal but as well, maybe even especially, spiritual. I know that we have so many people around us who need to be strengthened. And in the fulfillment of your baptismal covenant to mourn with those who mourn and to comfort those who stand in need of comfort I invite you all to reach out and find someone who needs strengthening. Be it a less active member, member, or someone who is not yet a member. I promise is will bless your life exceedingly and you will come to know in a more personal way what the Savior has already done for you.
