Quote from her letter, “Dear Family~ I have so many stories to tell! I don’t even know where to begin. There are so many small miracles that happen every day it is hard to keep track of them all. Something that i have been thinking about this past week was following up with miracles. As our zone has been fasting and praying for the miracle of 50 baptisms, we have been reaping the blessings of our efforts, but i’m not sure if we are all acting on every miracle we see. Heavenly Father will always give us blessings if he knows we will act on them. But if we ignore the promptings leading us there, or if we witness a miracle and simply let the opportunity slip past we will stop noticing those miracles. We have to act! All we have to do is follow the spirit, and souls will be saved. We just had our fireside last night for the antelope ward, and it was incredible to see a simple idea turn into something that could change the face of missionary work in the area forever. Just a few weeks ago i told sister Elliott that i thought this might be a good idea, and that it might help the members get involved with the new wave of missionary work! We told our ward mission leader, Brother Mercer, about it and got the elders involved and everyone was excited! I couldn’t believe it. Brother Mercer was so helpful in planning and getting everything together! (Sister Elliott and I, being the control freaks that we are, really had to pray for patience to let the men plan this thing! haha) The bishop, brother mercer, the elders quorum president, and us missionaries spoke. about a third of the ward showed up! YAY!!!!!!!!! i was so worried that no one would come! we talked about the new missionary web site “hastening the work” and how important member involvement is in the work of salvation! I have been amazed at how many people didn’t see the missionary broadcast, it is so important that everyone does. CHALLENGE ๐Ÿ™‚ Visit this website! Share it with everyone! There are so many amazing videos and quotes there that can help you all as members to understand how to teach, when to teach, and WHY we need to teach. We are all missionaries working together, name tag or not. Spread the word ๐Ÿ™‚
I love all the pictures! Thanks so much for all the love and support, i can feel your prayers give me strength every day. This work is amazing, i wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.
Love you all!
-Sarah”
