His Love is Always There

Hello Everyone,

This week, This week was freaking awesome!

Okay this week we had tons of miracles. We started off this week with some service projects we actually did four this week, we did tons of yard work ( i mowed a lawn for the first time seeing that my dad took precious care of his lawn and i clearly didn't want to mess it up) i'd never done it before! One of elders was teaching me but he had a specific way he did it i might have messed it up a little but the lawn got mowed that's what matters :) pulled some more weeds this week, and helped move people and pack up some houses. It was super fun we usually do our service as a zone too which is helpful. We've been walking our area a lot more which is fun and friendly waves are everything.. one of my companions likes to wave at every car that drives by until they wave at her its pretty entertaining. We run into some interesting people while were out walking always great to share the gospel. And every time we walk we have to have some sort of photo adventure.. we found pride rock in our neighborhood it was awesome. So of course we all had to take a picture on pride rock. So one day this week Sis Abello got sick and she is our designated driver so I had to drive and we were on our way to visit a less active and we saw an ice cream truck (you know me and ice cream) so Sis. Chevalier and I chased it down until it pulled over for us! it was worth it. This week we also had a companion fast such an experience we did it towards the end of the week.. we were having a semi- slow week with getting into people's home and we had our fast and so many awesome experiences after. 

First our investigator Dan passed his baptismal interview we are so excited. We went back to his house that night and he did the lesson super cool. His daughter who is three said the most beautiful prayer and we look up and Dan is crying it was a tender moment. Second, our investigator Francisca came to church this week! And the talks were on baptismal covenants and the holy ghost it was perrfect! Thirdly, a less active we have been working with has become active and qualified for her temple recommend. She had an interview with our bishop and didn't expect to me getting her recommend, the bishop interviewed her and walked her down to the stake presidents office and she was able to receive her temple recommend she hasn't been back to the temple in 20 years. We are so excited for her. Fourth, Marissa the investigator I taught in  Caldwell got baptized on Saturday! She asked me to speak at her baptism. It was such an awesome experience. Her foster dad was able to baptize her.. it was such a tender experience he teared up while he was in the font. It made me reflect on Elder Christofferson's talk on Fathers from, general conference.” "Some men are single fathers, foster fathers, or stepfathers. Many of them strive mightily and do their very best in an often difficult role. We honor those who do all that can be done in love, patience, and self-sacrifice to meet individual and family needs. It should be noted that God Himself entrusted His Only Begotten Son to a foster father. Surely some of the credit goes to Joseph for the fact that as Jesus grew, He “increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. " They have been such an incredible family for her. And the best news the are going to adopt her next month! So excited for them. I know how much heavenly father loves us individually and cares about the things we do. I was reading from a talk this morning during personal study also by Elder Hugh B Brown "The Currant Bush" Check out the short video. The lord is mindful of all of us. I have a huge testimony of his love. I hope everyone has a great week! 

Trio Tag Line:  "With the gift of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the strength of heaven to help us, we can improve, and the great thing about the gospel is we get credit for trying, even if we don’t always succeed." - Elder Jeffrey R Holland

Much love,
Sister Cleveland
