Hello friends! Did you all have a good week?
This week was eventful in an uneventful way. We had lots of meetings and a lot of planning to do so we were inside a lot which drives Sister Johanson crazy. I just want to be out talking to people all the time. But everything turned out ok. We had MLC and Elder Kelton Jacobsen is now a ZL in Columbia so we got to see each other and talk a bit which was really cool :) Always nice to see old friends, kinda weird but it felt pretty casual.
We had stake conference this weekend and Elder Dube of the seventy came to our stake. He's this short, African guy and he was so funny. But the Saturday night session they focused on the importance of the one; and how God works by individuals. I also read this quote in my atonement quote book Mom gave me for my birthday. I don't remember exactly what it said but talked about how the atonement wasn't a mass atonement but it was very individual. And all God asks us is to find the 1. And He's placed at least 1 person in our lives that we can affect and share or bring back to the gospel. That's the role of latter day saints, is to be the hands of the Savior; and that's what the Savior would have done if He had been on earth. He always went after the one. So I invite you to think about who the 1 is in your life that God wants you to reach out to and invite the gospel more fully into their life.
We had some pretty crazy things go on at meetings and with investigators and missionaries this week and it was kind of hard. But we have to endure the trials if we want the product of a miracle. I love you all lots and lots and lots! Miracles are in abundance waiting at heaven for us to pull them down with our faith. So we're going to try to do that.
I hope you all have a great week!!! Lot's of good ole southern love headed your way from Sparkle City. AKA Spartanburg, SC.
