i do not doubt my mother knew it .. [05.11.09]

Alma 56:47-48
"Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.
"And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it."

Alma 57 :21
"Yea, and they did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness; yea, and even according to their faith it was done unto them; and I did remember the words which they said unto me that their mothers had taught them."

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY .. yesterday !

it was an amazing day for me ! talking to MY MARMIE and SARAI !

MARMIE .. you are such a great example to me in my life and i wouldn't be who i am now without you. thank you.

SARAI .. thank you for your dedication to the YW and never giving up on us. you have taught me so much.

i have been blessed with amazing examples of women in my life. the women i know have survived many trials and have put their FAITH and TRUST IN HEAVENLY FATHER. from their example i have learned to give everything to my Heavenly Father. I DO NOT DOUBT THAT MY MOTHER AND THE WOMEN I KNOW KNEW IT .. THAT GOD WOULD DELIVER THEM AND BLESS THEM !

this last week was beautiful .. not just the GREEN of Wisconsin BUT the smiles and cheerful hearts of the Wisconsinites !

* Monday FHE we reenacted Book of Mormon battle stories with our home made [foam] swords ! of course mine said "LA" on it ! it was a good lesson about preparation and standing strong !

* Oshkosh Institute is so good ! Alex and our new investigator Matt came ! the class is called "the power of the word" and Brother Hale is an excellent teacher !

* ALEX PINGELS baptismal interview went AMAZING ! that guy is SO solid .. he continues to amaze me ! his baptism will be this Saturday MAY 16, 2009 @ 3p in Neenah ! we and he couldn't be more excited !

* GOING TO YW/YM for the Appleton 2nd ward ! i love the youth program ! they are so amazing ! almost EVERYONE of those youth brought a friend with them ! its fun serving in a family ward as well !

* teaching ADAM .. another new investigator .. he is friends with Jenna Benyo .. one of our YSA who is off track at BYUi right now .. we taught him about the restoration and the spirit was SO strong ! every time i teach the restoration the spirit floods the room .. the restoration is KEY to everything we believe and know to be true. know the proper authority was RESTORED or brought back new to the earth is an amazing blessing and THE BOOK OF MORMON is EVIDENCE of the truth of the restoration !

* BYU DANCE COMPANY came to APPLETON, WISCONSIN ! the missionaries were at the show to help pass out programs and seat people ! it was SO fun .. the dancing was WAY good AND one of the BYU dancers happened to be my s. blacks roommate back in provo ! we talked for a bit about how amazing s. black is and it was so good !

* YSA VOLLEYBALL = always amazing ! we have so much fun .. s. johnson has continued the tradition of getting hit in the face by the volleyball .. the poor girl .. she wears glasses too .. we are trying to stop the tradition so we will have to see how it goes this next week :) after playing we talked about ..
2 nephi 2:25
"Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy."
our Heavenly Father sent us here to have joy and some ways our YSA said to have joy our :
go to church, read, pray, ponder, good friends, see the positive, and rely on the Lord. those primary answers are the most crucial and basic for us to have joy in this life !

* the twins = SELINA and SLYVIA .. they are 13 and we are working with them in the APL 2 .. they are very fun girls, very strong willed and need the gospel .. we all made our own title of liberty like captain moroni !

* i love the sabbath day ! its so nice to renew our covenants and receive spiritual strength to go on in the week ! i love the YSA branch ! its still small but yet its strong !

* DINNER AT THE BOYLES ! they are half Hawaiian and half white ! they are in the oshkosh ward and they are SO AMAZING ! we had a wonderful dinner with their family and the oshkosh elders ! they also gave us an amazing show of ukuleles and hula ! it DEF brought me back to the good times at BYUh for me ! oh how i miss Hawaii !
we have lots to look forward to this week .. ESPECIALLY ALEX'S BAPTISM !

i thank everyone for their support and love to me. i appreciate it SO MUCH.

have a beautiful week ! [we got to go take our car to the shop now and play an intense game of baseball for e.fergusons bday !]
