Little Miracles Go a Long Way

Last week we had dinner with a member and she told us that she wanted us to go by and visit her Niece Cami who isn't a member. We went by and immediately her and her husband invited us in and they tell us that they don't know what church is true and they want to raise their 2 little kids knowing Christ and where to turn when they need help but they don't for themselves how can they teach their kids. We were so excited to tell them that Christ really is there and he really does know what they are going through and He wants them to know where to find peace and comfort. After we told them they told us that they wanted so badly to come to church and to be baptized. 

Definitely a tender mercy.

Well love ya all!

1. So we met this guy, Alex, a couple of weeks ago at the park and he was really interested and he gave us his phone number and we tried calling and texting him and we couldn't ever get an appointment cause he was super busy. Then we picked a random street to knock and guess whose street it was?! Yup, Alex and he didn't even give us his address so that was crazy! And we have a lesson with him tomorrow! Heavenly Father truly is looking out for His children and He knows them personally. 
2. That moment when you walk into the library and Elder Rayl's only comment is "Sister Wade you look really tired!"  Thanks Elder....
3. Sister Peterson got pretty sick and we are thinking that she may be gluten intolerant which is never fun
4. We knocked on this guys door that had a sign that said "No soliciting. No roofing. No hail damage." As we were knocking we were wondering what in the world that sign meant he opened the door and told us that he had a no soliciting sign and so we quickly told him that we weren't selling anything. He pointed to the sign again and said "that means no knocking." So apparently if you see a sign that says "No soliciting. No roofing. No hail damage." what it really means is no knocking. Haha like what?
5. Oh and TRANSFERS ARE TOMORROW! (That's why were emailing today) and Sister Peterson and I are staying in Cruces(:

6. When your lesson cancels and your members says "Okay Sister's you need Sonic were going there right now and your getting a large whatever you want." I.Love.The.Curnutt.Family.

Could Not Be Shaken

My mom sent us matching
 "I don't do morning's" 
Pajamas so obviously we had to take a picture
 Happy Birthday to me! 
We had to blow as many of those things 
(whatever they're called haha)
all at once cause that's what normal 20 year olds do

Zone Conference
This week I have kind of been on an Elder Holland spree and reading every talk I have of his (so if you have any good suggestions on favorite talks of his fill me in ASAP!) And there was something that I just loved about the talk Safety for the Soul. 

"For 179 years this book has been examined and attacked, denied and deconstructed, targeted and torn apart like perhaps no other book in modern religious history—perhaps like no other book in any religious history. And still it stands...None of these frankly pathetic answers for this book has ever withstood examination because there is no other answer than the one Joseph gave as its young unlearned translator. In this I stand with my own great-grandfather, who said simply enough, “No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so.”

Wow, think about that. The Book of Mormon has been attacked and targeted for years on end and yet still it stands. It stands and I stand with it. As I was reading this talk my own testimony of the Book of Mormon was reiterated and strengthened. I know that it doesn't matter how many people were to attack the Book of Mormon. It doesn't matter how many people would try to shake me from my faith in it and I know that like Jacob " I could not be shaken" (Jacob 7:5) I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Book of Mormon truly is His word. It is what ties families together. It was what gives strength, peace and comfort in a world that is raging and comfortless. I know that our Heavenly Father loves each of us so dearly that he wants us so badly to return to live with Him. So badly. And He has given us the tools to do it. The Book of Mormon being one of the many.

I want to challenge you though to look at where you are. Could you stand with Elder Holland in saying that you know the Book of Mormon is true? If you're not quite there yet pray and ask for the confirmation from the Holy Ghost that it is. I promise it will change your life. It has mine.
