Rainy days

This week it rained every single day. So it?s been pretty hard because
no one wants to let us in or come out to open the gate, haha.
But we continued on and met some pretty cool people. We taught one
lady named Chirlene, that was SUPER excited when we gave her a Book of
Mormon and she told us at the end of the lesson that she felt like
everything we said was true. Then the other day we were walking down
the road saying ``hi`` to everyone and we passed one guy and as we
said ``hi`` he called after us and said ``what church are you guys
from?!!`` so we told him about the church and gave him the address and
everything and then he said ``I don?t live here but I?ll definitely
visit sometime because you guys are different.`` It is so amazing to
see how the Spirit touches the heart of others.

This week I was studying about the spirit and a read a scripture
mastery verse that everyone knows...

D&C 8:2 Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart,
by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in
your heart.

And I kept reading....

3 Now, behold, this is the spirit of revelation; behold, this is the
spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red
Sea on dry ground.

And the thought came into my mind that when Moses parted the Red Sea
it was because he thought to do it and the spirit confirmed to thought
in his heart... it wasn?t because a voice came booming from the
heavens or because an angel desended.

then in verse 5;

5 Oh, remember these words, and keep my commandments. Remember, this
is your gift.

As members of Christ´s church we all receive the gift of the Holy
Ghost. The Spirit talks to us in our minds and in our hearts but it
depends on OUR faith if we will act on those impressions or not.
Miracles still exists as they did in the time of Moses. But is our
faith as strong as his to be able to perform these miracles??

It was a WOW moment for me.

Thanks for all the love!!!

Love and pray for you all!
