Well you know its gonna be a good day when the zone leaders send a text saying to make sure to pack your 72 hour kits on the car and be ready to hightail it back home when the blizzard hits. yay snow! #pray4me
Well all is well here in Kearny, NJ. First and foremost, Oscar and Angel both received the priesthood yesterday!! It was so good to see them and this like extra light in their eyes after they received it. I have such a testimony of the reality of the priesthood power. It is literally the power of God given to man to act in His name. What a blessing to have access to that power here on the earth. And what a blessing to know where to access it. I become more and more grateful for the faith that a 14 year old boy had in 1820, to pray and ask God a simple question, which of all the churches were true. Its because of that faith, that through him, the priesthood power has been restored on the earth again.
MILAGRO. Flippin' Oscar's dad, Hermano Guerrero came to church.... AND FOR ALL 3 HOURS. that is such a miracle. He has not done that for like over a year. Its amazing to see how his son's spiritual progression has impacted him and now, he looks forward to his baptism, knowing that his son will be able to baptize him.
So we are in major finding mode. You know what that means, knocking on dem doors. That's how you break in those new missionaries ya feel? Sister Bentley cracks me up. If I say jump, she'll jump 50 times without question. We went out to the busiest street and I told her, "okay so we are going to contact every person we see on this street okay?" and so we are walking and there weren't many people outside at first due to weather conditions and so we are walking for a while and there is someone like 2 streets down at this intersection and she YELLS, "HELLO SIR! HOW ARE YOU??" I just smiled so big. Like what in the world? This girl has no fear.
I couldn't be happier!! I love this work. Keep the prayers coming... especially in this weather. I was just not cut out for the snow hahaha
