Hey everyone! This has been a great week! We saw some great miracles happen! So about a month ago we were driving down the road and we saw a mom playing outside with her kids. Once we got down the street a ways, we got the feeling that we needed to go back and talk to her. So we did and she was awesome! Her name was Rachel. We got to know her really well and she said that she would call us to do so service! Well we hadn't heard anything from her in a really long time so we were going to go by and see her again. That day she actually called us!! She said that her neighbor needed some help and she remembered that we had offered to do some service. So we went over and met her neighbor and helped her clean all of the blinds in her house. To everyone who has never done that before it is pretty tough. Well after hours of intense physical exertion we finished. Rachel came over towards the end so she could talk with us. She is such an awesome lady! We sat and talked with her for an hour or so and she told us about the struggles of raising a family in the world and some of the personal things she was struggling with. We talked about the church and how God wants strong happy families, especially in the world today. She had some questions about church and at the end she said her and her family were going to come this week! It was awesome! When we were about to leave we asked if we could share a scripture with her and her neighbor. Well there were about three families all outside in the neighborhood and they came to listen. It was amazing to share a scripture about Christ with all of these families gathered around to hear. I have such a strong testimony of families. "God gave us families to help us become who he wants to be." I am grateful for my family and for this gospel that blesses families. The longer I have been out here the more I have come to realize how much God wants us to be happy. We are here to be happy and families help us accomplish that. Have a great week everyone!
