Hi everyone!Well, we got the call on Saturday night. Sis. Bee is getting transferred. :( I'm so sad to see her go! But I know that she'll do great wherever she goes and that we'll both get awesome new companions! We're going to Manchester, NH tomorrow for transfer meeting, so it'll be a long day with a lot of driving! I'll let you know next week who my new companion is!
On Wednesday we saw Samantha again! We went into the lesson planning on teaching the Restoration, but we basically ended up teaching the Plan of Salvation. Our visit with her was totally by the spirit and it was a lot like in the Book of Mormon when Ammon was teaching King Lamoni where the investigator just asks questions. She asked so many great questions and it was the coolest lesson ever! Samantha hadn't gone to church in 6 years, then went on Easter Sunday, and then we found her a couple days later. She said she feels like God lead us to her, and I totally feel like he lead her to us! She is seriously so prepared!!!
This week I did a Topical Guide study on the Abundant Life and it was so good! Some scriptures that I liked were 2 Chronicles 20:20, Isaiah 1:19, John 10:10, 2 Nephi 4:35, and D&C 93:27. Jesus Christ is the way to the abundant life!
Church yesterday was so good! The Elders in our ward taught about the Atonement. The Atonement is so cool because it's redeeming and enabling! But when we don't use the Atonement or live the principles and ordinances of the gospel, then it hinders our eternal progression. Just like a dam stops water from moving forward, so do our choices and actions when they don't lead us closer to Christ. Damnation is not being thrust to hell, it is a limitation in our eternal progression. Please don't spiritually dam yourself! Do something everyday that leads you closer to Christ!
Wow sorry it's so short this week, but I'm running out of time! I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!Love, Sister Harper
