It has been a wonderful week!! On Friday I had a sweet experience that I will cherish forever. You may recall the story of Gwen. She is a less active Sister that Sister Price and I met in Delray. She hadn't been active for over 35 years and hadn't heard from the church in over 11. Sister Andrew and I taught her the lessons and helped her get member friends and make her way back to full activity. Well guess what?! She went to the
on Friday to recieve her endowment!
President gave Sister Andrew and I permission to go!!!!! It was incredible. The
spirit was so strong the entire time and Gwen literally glowed as you can tell
by the picture. She has had the Temple
as her goal for quite sometime but something always got in the way. She shared
with me that just over a week ago she had a dream. Her father came to her and
boldly said, "Gwen, it is time. Quit putting it off and GO!" And GO
she did! After the session we got to watch her be sealed to her parents which
was another very spiritual experience. I am so grateful that we could be there.
She has come so far and progressed so much. She is on fire with family history
and her conversion continues Christ and his gospel continues to deepen. This is
what missionary work is all about. Baptizing and confirming is just the
beginning. The church and Temple Kingdom of God is established as families are sealed and
completed in the .
This is the work of Salvation. Temple
In the other picture you can see that we had a Pinewood Derby! I got to bring out the old car that Sister Stegelmeier and I made and race again. It brought back some good memories.
Yesterday we had ward conference. Our Stake President is President Litchfield from
. Small world
eh? We were in a meeting with our WML, Bishop, and him and when I told him I
was from Cardston he went on a total Medicine Hat Southern Alberta
rant. It was the greatest.
We really are so blessed to live in
Southern Alberta. Elder Cook himself, when he came here a year ago, said that there is such a special spirit among the Canadian Saints. President Litchfield talked about how it produces strong families, missionaries, and individuals. We really are so blessed to call it our home.
I hope you all have a great week and that we can continue to show the Lord gratitude for all the blessings he has given us by our whole hearted obedience.
