This week has been really good. We got to teach some of our progressing investigators. They are really cool people! The weather has been really nice lately, and that helps because it makes people happier, and happier people like to talk!
I think it is very interesting how different everyone really is. We all have very different personalities, different likes and dislikes, different opinions, different spiritual needs, and different questions. But through these differences, is what makes us all unique and special. They make us more than just creatures. For me, it is something that reminds me that we all are sons or daughters of a loving Heavenly Father, that wants the best for us. Because he wants the best for us, he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, into the world so that we could be saved. Through Christ and His atonement, his sacrifice in the last days of his life, we can be saved from everything. Through Him, we can be saved physically, being able to overcome physical death when we are all resurrected like He was. We also can be saved spiritually. Without Christ, we could not possibly return to our Heavenly Father because we are imperfect, but with Christ, we can become perfected, we can be better people, and we can learn and grow. Christ paid the price for our sins, it's left up to us whether or not we choose to accept his sacrifice on our behalf and follow him.
Here's a link to a new website with a new Easter video and a link to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing Handel's Messiah with others that sent in videos! www.mormon.org/easter
This week is Easter week, which is really exciting. We won't be able to contact people as much when Easter gets closer, but it'll be awesome getting to celebrate with everyone!
This week, I hope that we all spend some time thinking of the reason we have Easter. We celebrate new life, but not only new life because it's springtime, but new life in Christ. He is the hope that we have in our lives. He is the reason we have purpose in life. I hope that as we celebrate this week, we enjoy one another's company, spend some time pondering Christ's life, and what he means for us.
Have a great week everyone!
