My baby Raymant is staying in good ole' Hamilton and I'm going to the exotic land of Bramladesh (Brampton)! I'll be right next to the Temple, so I'm not complaining.
I'll miss Hamilton and the people here so much. They will forever have such a special place in my heart!
Church was soooo good yesterday! All four of us sisters performed a musical number and gave talks. My topic was "What is my role in fulfilling Heavenly Father's Plan?"
(Thanks to Elder Bednar)
So Heavenly Fathers Plan--> Moses 1:39
Our purpose in fulfilling that--> D&C 11:20
So I felt guided to focusing my talk on Christlike attributes. I know that as we do all we can to pray for and exercise and develop these, that we will become more like our Saviour and become more capable of doing our part (to keep the commandments) in fulfilling Heavenly Fathers plan (of bringing to pass our immortality and eternal life).
FAITH. HOPE. CHARITY & LOVE. VIRTUE. KNOWLEDGE. PATIENCE. HUMILITY. DILIGENCE. OBEDIENCE.
These things will help us to become like our Saviour and our Heavenly Father.
So I invite all of yall to pick one of these attributes and study it out.
Read up on it.
Look for it in others.
Look for it in yourself.
Study how the Saviour exhibited it.
Read talks about it.
Print off quotes to inspire you to develop it.
I'm grateful for our Saviour. He is our perfect Exemplar. Let us become like Him so we, too, can receive immortality and eternal life. How great is our calling!!
Some cool happenings:
The other day we were walking down a busy street contacting, singing hymns with the other sisters, and we stop and talk to this guy named Alan. He started telling us how he met two girls about two months ago and they talked to him about things he has questions about (God, life, our purpose, etc.) and then he called their number and never got an answer. At first we thought he was talking about JWs or something, but we got his number and invited him to church. Then I asked him, "Is this a fake number??" He insisted it wasn't and told us to call him! So we did, and guess whose number was ALREADY IN OUR PHONE... Alan's!!! So he came to church yesterday and loved it! He is so getting baptized.
We also met one guy in this parking lot on the way to a dinner appointment the other night, big macho, tough guy. We started telling him who we are and what we do, and he politely listened. Soon, he was telling us his life story about his father dying in his arms, how his young daughter should have died at birth, how so many things have made him want to kill himself, how he only has a few friends, how he has a hard time believe in God, etc. This grown man was BAWLING. We testified to him of the Atonement and of the Saviour's love for him. It was so special. He laughed saying he wasn't expecting any of that to happen. haha #thespirit He'll getcha every time.
Short today because super busy!
The church is TRUE!!
I love yall!
