Well, this week I´ve been thinking a lot about impressions from the Holy Spirit. We had a lesson with a recent convert that we were nervous about because the subject was kind of touchy. We asked the elders in our ward to come too, so that he would be more comfortable, and talk a little more openly. Right before the lesson I was just a bit hysterical, because there wasn´t a light in the house, and it was raining outside so everyione was running in and out, and I was worried that the proper spirit wouldn´t be there. But as soon as we started, I felt such a peace and a confirmation that the Lord was pleased with everything we had prepared, and that everything would be alright. And it was. He talked about why he had been uncomfortable to go back to church, the elders and Hna. Cornelison were powerhouses, and my little bit went perfectly smoothly. We just had a nice, genuine, talk and it was fantastic.
At a sister meeting I also had a really nice bit of inspiration about trusting in the Lord completely and letting go of all my worries and fears. As long as I am trying to do my very best every day, I have no reason to worry. It was really liberating.
Here´s my favorite part of the week. There is a less active family I adore. The dad works in FL and is never at home, about 2 months is all in the winter. The mom has been sick so her church attendance was kind of low, but she studies her scriptures and Preach My Gospel, her example of steadfastness really impressed me the first time I met her. They have two teen-young adult sons Jonathan and Johan, (Johan sometimes comes to church, but I´ve never seen Jonathan there) and a daughter Danessa, that is 16 and pretty active, she´s the Young Women´s secretary.
Any way we visited with them all together (minus dad) for the first time the other night. We shared about setting a spiritual goal as a family as a gift for Jesus for the Navidad. We asked each of them for ideas, and they were good like, ättending church, having family home evening, family prayer, family scripture study. But Johan was still thinking intently about it, and he said that all those things were great, but that it needed to be more of an act of faith, which was interesting. That was how I had described the goal, even though I hadn´t in other lessons. But he really latched on to that, and said, ¨I would like to go to the temple, as a family and be sealed.¨ And my face said, Óh, that´s a nice suggestion.¨ But my brain was saying ¨WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! WOOOOOO!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Because from the beginning, I had felt that they should really go to the temple, and I can just see how beautiful that will be. They are a really loving family with good desires. They decided to set a goal to go do baptisms together, and I´m so excited for them :)
Love you all, hope you enjoy a little of my excitement!
