July 18, ... talk to us and catch a Pokemon

Dear Y'all,

This is what happened this week:

Last Monday a member took us to the art institute. It was so COOL!

A member saw us sitting outside and stopped to talk to us and catch a Pokemon.

We also encountered too many crazy, OUT OF THEIR MIND, people this week. 😓

And we had zone training and interviews with President Bingham. I LOVE
that man. He's hilarious, spiritually DEEP, and very loving.
In our interview, he asked me about myself, and asked what my mission
has meant to me. The Spirit was strong as I tried to find the words to
express all that this has done for me.
And I wanted to share with all of you how much I love this mission.
It's the hardest and most rewarding experience I've ever had. And I
know that it's where I need to be. Being here is such a privilege.
Even with all the crazy people you encounter on the bus. But I'm sure
I'll laugh about them later. Haha...

And in that interview, I was told, "You won't always know the Ones
until you talk to them." We won't always know WHO is going to accept
or be ready for the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ until we act in
faith to talk about it to people.
And going up to people on buses and trains is uncomfortable for me,
but I know that the restored Gospel is too precious to keep to myself.

And I need to do a lot better this week with trying to share it.

So I want to invite you guys to do it with me!

We also had an opportunity yesterday to talk to a woman who has been
out of the church for several years, and her husband who is not very
religious. He asked us what it means to say that "God is Always
there." He asked, "does that mean He always intervenes?"
This topic has been on my mind a lot this week. But I shared my
testimony that I know God loves us, and that's why He sent His son
Jesus Christ. And that because of Jesus Christ's ultimate sacrifice,
all wrongs and unfairness in this life will be made right.
And that's the testimony I want to leave with all of you!

I sure do love you all! Thank you for all your support and love!
Have a great week. :))
