What A Great Week:)

Hey All! 
This week was great! Obviously from my subject line...:P anyways- We were able to go to the Temple this week!! So good!:) and It was amazing! I learned so much! Oh how I miss the opportunity to go every week! If you haven't gone, Don't forget how blessed  you are to be able to go as often as you can. :) 

Two amazing things that happened this week:
1. I was able to share my testimony on how our goal is to get us and our loved ones back to our Father. I was able to realize that the small things in our lives that we do have to go through and deal with are just really really insignificant and we are doing a much greater work! Letting little trials get us down simple only hurts ourselves on that path. We should spend time being sad when we could be happy no matter what! I was also reading Gordon B Hinkley's Memoriam and I loved something that He said: If men would love their wife's more than themselves- we would have a better world" but I like to change it to "If we would love those around us more than ourselves- we would have a better world" I loved that and I have already seen the blessings of that in my life this week! 

2. Sara Waite, and Bill, both Investigators in Mandan came to church on Sunday:) It was so amazing! definitely a miracle:) I was so happy! Bill came grudgingly but at least he came right? when we called on Saturday to tell him that we got him a ride he said 
" you actually got it all planned out? Goll Ya'll are just mean!!!" haha He is like 70 with a smokers voice so that was pretty entertaining:) 

We had Elder Spackman from Canada visiting the Bismarck Stake and we were able to go the the Conference Saturday night. He taught us about the importance of missionary work and every one who helps
Did you know that someone usually comes into contact with the church 7 times before getting baptized? so even numbers 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 are just as important and 7. Yes we all want to be number 7 because thats when people get baptized but without the other numbers there wouldn't ever be a #7. No effort is wasted in that regard and every time we try and reach out It DOES make a difference:) Don't ever give up on sharing little things because even if your testimony was a number 4 or 5 for someone, it makes a difference:) 

Welp, I hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy the fall season!:) Don't be afraid to Share what you love about the Gospel- lets get some more people ready to reach that #7:) Love you all:)
