5-5-2014

Well Well Well the start of Week 5........... WOW these days go by so fast.
This last week a lot of our lessons fell through, but we had a great Family Home Evening with a member, who is a single mom and whos son has is very intergetic. It is often really hard to teach a lesson so we usually go outside and play soccer or something with him and then have a spiritual thought. This week though we decided to try something. we decided to help her gain something to progress to. As we sat down, we decided to start off with the spiritual thought first. We sat down with her while her son was outside with her mother, and talked a little bit about the temple. We asked her if she had been to the temple and she said no but she wanted to she just always had to spend her time with her son. We gave our spiritual thought on how some of the first steps were to read and pray everyday. She said she would and that we could meet while her son was at school and talk about the temple and what she needs to do to get there. I am so excited for these lessons and to see how this can really help her change her life toward the way Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ want her to live again.
We ran into a guy on the street the other day that is awesome. We talked for a while and he told us of how he would say he is a believer because he looks for Gods hand everyday in his life, in every meeting with every person, even ours. He said he could see it in ours and that he would love to talk more about it, but he couldnt until september because he had tests to finish school and them he is doing humanitarien work for the whole summer so he wouldnt be in Nitra. We gave him a Book of Mormon and our number and he said that he would read it and that he would call us if he ever had any free time. He said he wants to meet in september so we will see whole is here in Nitra in september i guess.
It has been a week of miracles, and this next week I get to see where Slovakia was dedicated for missionary work. In Trencin. it will be so cool.
I wanted to close with a spiritual thought, I have really learned something here on my mission, from the people I see, to those I teach, to those that are members. That this gospel in one of change on our part. Heavenly Father knows that we are not perfect and he knows what we can become. Two quotes I read this week as I was thinking of people in my life that I have seen this in and that I am seeing it in.
"We see ourselves in terms of yesterday and today. Our Heavenly Father sees us in terms of forever. Although we might settle for less, Heavenly Father wont, for he sees us as the glorious beings we are capable of becoming." -
"The gosple of Jesus Christ is a gosple of transformation. It takes us as men and women and refines us into men and women for the eternities." - Joseph B. Wirthlin
I know this is true. God wont make us do anything, but he will help us to Everything that we need to to return and live with him. Though times get hard, live is rough, school is stressful and so is work. He loves you, he wants to help you, he will do anything for you. I hope you know this.
Remember when life gets to hard to stand, kneel, you will be closer to heaven anyways.
