SHORTY WHAT IT IS ! [10.19.09]
THE MIRACLES ARE ENDLESS !
this gospel is for everyone and it is amazing. no matter what stage in life we are in, what our weakness or challenges are, or our strengths and happiness is .. the message of the RESTORED GOSPEL can and will better each and everyone of our lives if we act on faith and APPLY it !
2 Nephi 26:13
"And that he [Jesus Christ] manifesteth himself unto all those who believe in him, by the power of the Holy Ghost; yea, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, working mighty miracles, signs, and wonders, among the children of men according to their faith."
2 Nephi 26:33
"For none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile."
i love knowing that. we can all be better and this restored gospel makes us better ! that is why i want and continue to share it with everyone .. not only Heavenly Fathers children in Wisconsin but with my family and friends. JUST DO IT. that is mine and sister pluims motto ! we have to share this b.c. we KNOW how happy it makes us and i want you all to know TOO ! it is b.c. i love you and Heavenly Father loves you that he makes this good news available in many forms and one of that being His Representatives !
this week was good .. we can always do better but it was good ..
being on UWM campus was a highlight .. we taught SARA HASKEL .. she brought a friend .. RICHARD with her and NATE our amazing member missionary was there too ! sara has been going to church with her friend dani since she was 7yrs and still hasnt taken the plunge but she is making HUGE steps .. us teaching her is one of them. i love teaching on campus .. and now INSTITUTE is on campus and we are going to redouble our efforts to get it hoppin !
I GOT A HAIRCUT ! [sorry no picture included .. next week!] after i chopped my hair into a bob last year ive been wanting it to grow out but it has been growing funny and i needed a fix on the mullet i felt i was growing .. so now i have a slight a line haircut and it feel fabulous ! thank you to anneliese high .. natalyas sister !
funny story: we knocked on a door over by UWM and this older man opened the door and said, "hello i am not interested" .. i said, "hello, i am sister warner" .. then he said, "i am jon and i am a happy atheist." at least he opened the door !
we had an amazing lesson with HEATHER [i like that name b.c. of you H] the spirit was so strong. she has a learning disorder and she expresses herself through writting and she wrote this heartfelt poem about the pain she has had growing up and while sister pluim and i were both sitting there the spirit whispered ever so softly but clearly, "tell her I love her." i looked at Heather with tears forming in my eyes and said, "Heavenly Father wants YOU to know He loves you." sister pluim confirmed the prompting by saying the same thing. it was beautiful. she felt so much better and as sister pluim and i drove away we both smiled and said we felt the same thing. it was simple but it was what Heather needed.
KATIE WENZEL. oh how i love her. she FINALLY called us. she is less active and has been avoiding our calls and she said she was so sorry and i just hugged her forever when she came to talk to us. the healing power of the atonement it for everyone. i want everyone to have it and WE ALL NEED IT.
saturday was an ADVENTURE ! we went to 2353 north 10th st in MILWAUKEE .. i felt like i was home in LA ! we helped with a service project the YSA were doing .. helping fix a home for teen mothers .. it was and still is a pretty damaged house but the women who bought it has good intentions. it was really fun .. i learned how to rebuild a stair with e. carter ! or we should say i enlisted him to do it ! the best part was melvin .. 17year old african american boy who was helping and he walked by me and said, "e'cuse me shorty." i felt right back at home ! that prompted me to say to ari and you, "SHORTY WHAT IT IS !" it was a good time in the ghetto of milwaukee !
I LOVE THE FORMELLA / HELLE FAMILY ! and of course NATE RADER ! he just got baptized about 3 months ago ! there family is just amazing ! kirsten is my girl !
i love this gospel. it makes me happier and better each day ! i love sharing what i find and do with you.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.
I LOVE YOU.
*WISCONSIN FALL is AMAZING !*
