Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend and were able to ponder over the Resurrection of our Savior and what that means for you. If you haven't seen it yet, watch this video!! http://easter.mormon.org/ No seriously, watch it right now, don't finish reading this e-mail until you do! :) It is the most powerful video about Jesus Christ that I have ever seen and it gives me so much hope. I love the concept that because of Him, we can always have a clean slate, a new beginning, a fresh start. Through Him, everything that is wrong or unfair about life can be made right again. We can change and start over. Even when it seems like all is lost, Jesus Christ is still there beside us to help us get back up again. I am so grateful for that knowledge.
Though we had a few random things happen this week (such as one of our exchanges getting TWO flat tires on our way home from an appointment...), it was a good week! We met a new investigator who is so sweet and is really trying to find direction in her life. She is going through a divorce and trying to find her way back to God. I am so grateful for her desires to follow Him and that we can be part of helping her to do that! We also had the opportunity to teach the Gospel Principles Sunday School class at church yesterday, and it was so fun! We had a great discussion about why the world needed to have a Savior and how through Jesus Christ, we can be saved and purified.
This upcoming weekend, we have a great event. Gladys Knight is coming to the Raleigh area with her Grammy-award winning gospel choir for a fireside weekend. She will be directing and singing with the choir, as well as sharing her testimony of the Book of Mormon and how she came to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It will be so great! I hope everyone has a great week! :)
