HAPPY EASTER!! 🐇
This week has flown by, I’m starting to confuse my days with weeks! It all feels smashed together as a couple days.. yet it’s been 3 months since I left home!! At the start of our week we went to Bishops house for dinner and was able to reenact the last supper. It was pretty spiritual but fun because we all sat on the floor on pillows or large stuffed animals next to a lowered table a few inches off the ground. I sat next to this little boy who kept making funny comments and had a grape juice mustache. For Easter we went to another families house where they completely spoiled us, Easter baskets and all. The Coles always take us out to fancy places and treat us as their own, I tell them they are like my family away from home. I really love a lot of the families here!! One lady I absolutely adore hugged me on Easter and started to tear up, I will forever remember her sweet comments. I have no doubt I’ll keep in touch with her and her family for the rest of my life. I have grown to love Midwest City!! My comp and I keep trying to guess who’s getting transferred and who’s staying, I can’t tell. Sister B and I have seen so many miracles but a lot of disappointments too. The Watts family that were once so solid ran into an anti-Mormon and won’t give us the time of day now. We’re still keeping Faith in them though, Joseph can’t deny what he felt. It’s sad that so many people in this world listen to what others say rather than listening to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Satan is working hard and we have to stay strong and choose light over darkness. I keep thinking back to the symbolism on the Salt Lake Temple- how half of the stars face up and half face down. That’s supposed to represent only half of the members being ready for Christ to come again. I want to be ready and I’m going to do everything I can now to prepare. We need to stay strong. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, I know He lives and I know with my whole heart He loves us. I know that He sacrificed Himself because of that great love He has for us. He wants us all to make it back but the only way we can is if we choose to listen. I was blessed to be asked to speak on Easter Sunday in Sacrament and I know that Christ was by my side. I know He is real, I know He is the Savior of the World. I pray y’all had a blessed Easter and will remember to keep Jesus Christ in your heart and remember what He did for you.
