I had some of the COOLEST experiences this week!

One of our investigators had been going through some freaky things and wasn't feeling safe in her home. So we had the Elders come over to give her a blessing of comfort. When they finished, we asked her how she was feeling and she just bursts into tears. She said that she had been going through a lot of stress and confusion and that the blessings was EVERYTHING she needed to hear! She said it's just a confirmation that this is the church she's been looking for! And to top it all off, it was the first time she met the Elders, neither of them knew anything about each other but GOD knew them all perfectly! I'm SO GRATEFUL for the power of the priesthood in our lives and the fact that God is always so mindful of each of us individually! We all felt such an overwhelming feeling of peace sweep over us, a peace and happiness that can only come through this true and restored gospel!

Not only that, but we were able to see Michelle again this week and she never ceases to amaze me! The father of 2 of her kids died a few months back and it's still been heavy on her mind and causing her a lot of depression. But we were able to share with her the beauty of the Plan of Salvation and we were able to tell her where he is and how he isn't and will never be lost. I will never be able to put into words the comfort I feel in knowing God's plan for each of us and I love the opportunity I have to share it with others! We were also able to commit her children to baptism as well! 

We taught one of our investigator's daughter Crystal the restoration and she said how she's been looking for a way to come to Christ, she's going through a lot of family trials and wants peace. Thankfully, we have a STRONG testimony on how the gospel blesses families and she's beginning to see how it will help her through these hard times!!

Also, it snowed in the mountains and Sister Wheeler literally started crying when she saw. It's going GREAT here!
