Such a great week!!!
Sister Joy and Pia got baptized!!!!!!!!!
It has been 3 months since Sister Yang first met these two! I love them so much. They growth over these last 3 months has been incredible, and the fact that they got baptized on EASTER makes is so much better! Best EASTER EVER!
Also, this week we had a fun Ward Easter Party....Elder Smith dressed up as a bunny....555+ and we taught everyone how to play Red Rover! So funny. The best part was the first hour of the party though, where we taught everyone the real meaning of Easter. That our Savior Jesus Christ was Resurrected. Elder Webb did a wonderful violin solo musical number, and we watched all of the Because of Him videos that the church has put out. Including the new one from this year, "Hallelujah". The spirit was so strong and it ended up just going so well.
This has been the best Easter I have ever had by far.
Here is what my motto for Easter has been.... MOSIAH 16:15
"Teach them that redemption cometh through Christ the Lord, who is the very Eternal Father. Amen."
I have seen so many blessing from teaching towards Easter and towards the Atonement and Resurrection of Christ this Easter season. I am going to make that a permanent change in my teaching. Not just during Easter but focusing more on the Atonement all year round...I want to "always remember him", so that I can "ALWAYS have his spirit" to me with me.
This next will we are going to Bangkok again for MLC on Thursday! My last one of my mission, and then next Thursday April 7th, will be my last Zone Conference. So crazy to think. It doesn't even feel like it. I honestly feel nothing. 555+ I just feel happy like always, and just at peace with life. Everything will workout, it always does. But that doesn't mean you don't have to TRY.
I love the quote from President Johnson in his email today.
"I firmly believe any two missionaries can have a good companionship if both are willing to try. So try."
Amen!!! Apply that to every aspect of your life and you will be happy. Because it is in the "TRYING" that that peaceful reassurance comes from. And it is when you feel that peaceful reassurance that you don't stress out over the little things, because you have hope in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, that one day everything will make sense.
I hope everyone has a great time TRYING this week! :)
