Hey everyone! Happy late Easter!
I hope you all had a wonderful Sabbath! I know mine was amazing. Sister Whitney and i made 7 dozen cookies and took them to all our investigators and less-actives. It was really fun to be able to share a Easter message with so many people :) It is amazing how much our Savior truly loved us SO much that he was willing to die for us. He has suffered absolutly everything for us! In Alma 7:11-13 says,
" And he shall go forth, suffering pains and aafflictions andbtemptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will ctake upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him adeath, that he may bloose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to csuccorhis people according to their infirmities.Now the Spirit aknoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the bflesh that he might ctake upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me."
That is the testimony that is in me too! I know that Christ suffered for us, every bad and hurtful thing we have ever been through he has gone through too! We are never alone, their is always someone that understands! Christ is always there and he will never leave us. I am so grateful for the knowledge that i have and i hope you all know that these things are true as well and if you don't i encourage you to pray about them! I know that God will answer your prayers!
We had a pretty good week, Spring is sort of here. Most days it is nice and warm and sunny and other times it is a little gloomy, but it is a nice change from snow :) Everyone here in Northern Idaho likes to complain about the weather and they all say that if you don't like the weather then wait five minutes and it will change. In my experience this is not just an Idaho thing but happens in quite a few places including Ohio and London haha.
Well i hope you are all doing well. I am loving the emails and letters that i have received. I love hearing about your lives especially funny stories :) Keep me in the loop please!
Have a fantastic week
P.S. Auntie Helen if you read these at all thank you for the letters! I don't have your address and so i haven't been able to respond but i am loving your letters and Abraham's letters too!
