"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it."
"And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
I love these verses because they remind me that all these great things are happening right now! We have temples everywhere, in many nations. We're inviting everyone to come up to the mountain of the Lord, or the temple, so we can be taught the ways of the Lord together. We have the blessing and opportunity to bring those around us closer to God every single day.
I love my companion so much! She's such a blast. The other day we and the sisters in our zone all had an OYM marathon. We set a combined goal of everyone talking to at least 26 of our brothers and sisters we saw outside that day, and we reached it! Hurray! We have some of the best sister missionaries in our zone. They all work so diligently. We are getting a brand new missionary in my old stake on Wednesday straight from the MTC! I'm super excited to meet her. The River stake is going to be a great first area for her.
As a companionship we taught 25 lessons last week! It's been so fun :)
I love this stake! We are still seeing tons of miracles :) Like yesterday, for instance, we totally got the wrong time of a ward council, so we were wandering around in this church building trying to decide where to go instead, and we ended up walking past one of the bishops, who just so happened to have a referral for us! We went by the referral last night and it turns out a man just moved here from Pennsylvania who wants to join the church! The Lord is so involved in the details of our lives. I feel so blessed to be His hands here in South Jordan again.
We have lots of meetings the next couple of weeks, we we'll see what kinds of exciting things are in store for the USLCS mission.
Have a happy week! I love you!
PS, We ate cactus jalapeno soup for dinner last night. I just thought that as note worthy
PPS A few weels ago they put these things in our cars called Tiwis and they track our driving and yell at us when we do things wrong, and it's only yelled "check your speed" at me 3 times in the past week, so my driving has improved considerably.
PPPS we also met a couple yesterday who have SEVEN CATS and they all live inside and it doesn't even smell like cats, so haha, it IS possible!
