24 We ask thee, Holy Father, to establish the people that shall worship, and honorably hold a name and standing in this thy house, to all generations and for eternity.
I felt the spirit so strong as I read those verses. There truly is so much peace and comfort that comes from clinging to the promises the Lord has made to us when we are going through difficult times.
We saw a lot of miracles with the less active members that we are working with. We have been visiting a family that stopped coming to church because of something another member did. All of their kids came to church on Sunday! Their youngest daughter is so cute. She pulled out my scriptures and started marking hers the exact same way mine were marked. We are working with a sister who is trying to be rebaptized into the church. She struggles a lot with depression, and we were finally able to sit down and talk to her on Saturday. It was interesting to hear her talk about how she has to pull herself out of these episodes. The only way she can do it is with the help of the Lord. There are so many trials that we go through that seem to overpower us, but nothing is more powerful than the love that Heavenly Father has for us and the promise that he will "ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders." (Mosiah 24:14).
We did a lot of service this week, which was nice. We don't usually get service opportunities here! We helped a family pack boxes in preparation to move. I cut a sister in the ward's hair...(Holly you would be proud! I just tried to copy what you do when you cut hair, and luckily it was just a trim and I didn't butcher it too bad!) We helped another Sister go through some antique stuff in her garage and get it ready to sell. At church on Sunday we had a lot of less actives that we are working with come and it was so wonderful to see them all there! Attending church really does bring strength and power into our lives. Thanks for all the love and support!!
