July 31

One quick spiritual highlight of last week, we were finally able to meet up with a potential we felt had been avoiding us a bit, but finally had a few moments last night. As we took her to the teaching space, she immediately felt the Spirit there. Such a joy and desire to talk about God, learn about Him, she spent so much time talking about how great she felt the time went so fast! We could only commit her to church and reading the restoration pamphlet, which apparently she did very quickly! 20 minutes after our lesson ended, she texted us (she had already sent MANY thanking us for the time we had spent with her) asking for a Book of Mormon! Amazing evidence of how much Heavenly Father has prepared His children. And there are so many of them!!! People all around us, who have no idea about God, or that He has a plan for all of them. How blessed are we??

There are heaps of marriages happening around here in Australia, like all the YSAs decided that 2016 was the year to be married! Glad I'm safe, but there's a fun fact for you :)
love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I know everyone is kind of on a trip high, and the pictures Dani sent me of your vacation look amazing! Great spiritual and social highlights haha. Something I've been thinking a lot about is the specifics of what to share with people. I shared with Rachel that that is what helps SO much when we're talking to people, giving them more specifics of why we are doing what we're doing. But a question for you all to think about, and hopefully send me the answer next week? :D

1) What does the gospel mean to you personally?

2) How does being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints make a difference in your life?

Love you all so much, and glad you could have such great experience, even without me there!
