You Don't Stop Until You've Given Your Best, Your Very BEST!
Family and Friends,
"But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ."
This scripture has had an even more significant strength for us in the mission this week. Just a few days ago we found out that Sister Soifua's father passed away. We were all just sitting in Presidents office crying and praying and trying to comfort her in this trial she has been given. But then miracles started to happen, right after that we promised a less active we would visit them before they moved, so thats what we did. Then we remembered we had a lesson with an investigator, so thats what we did. We kept pushing forward.
Sister Soifuas faith has been so strong. As Sister Candy told us on Sunday
"Faith brings Confidence
I know that is so true faith brings confidence in our purpose her, confidence in the gospel and Gods Plan of Happiness for our families. The grave has no victory and the sting of death is swallowed up in Him who gave His life for us all.
We had a much needed zone conference after the news came. It was all about having faith and acting and doing your very best. Putting in all your effort, because in the end it wont matter how many things or awards we had but the pure effort we put into all we do.
Times of trial put in focus the important things that can be blurred out by life. I hope we are all trying to come unto or back to Christ EVERYDAY. Dont stop. If you havent been reading your scriptures, START. If you havent been to church in a while, GO BACK. If you havent let the people you love know, SHOW THEM.
Anything that is getting in the way of bringing you closer to Christ,JUST STOP. JUST STOP IT.
The Lord needs you, others need you, you need this.
The gospel is so true and I love it so much, nothing brings more peace and happiness.
Make sure to SMILE today and this whole week, There is so much to be happy about,
