Whatcha gonna do

Well we had a miraculous week again! This area is exploding right now with missionary work. We had another girl come up to us at church and ask us to teach her so that was super exciting! It has been a really good week for us and the Ward. A lot of the members have been having great experinces with missionary work too and been stepping up their game with inviting friends to church and to activities!

Sister Brown is amazing. I love her so much. We get a long so well and we teach together even better. We have a great time and we both love working hard. It is so great to have a companion who just wants to do all the work that we can! Some of our favorite past times are people watching at the Library on P-days (it is like the missionary version of watching television). We also feel like we become Doctor Phil sometimes when we enter certain areas. People will randomly come up to us and start telilng us all there problems... it is similar to Jerry Springer if you can imagine. The things i hear on my mission that i never thought i wouuld hear!

So as i said we had a mini missionary last week and that was quite interesting. She was a 16 year old girl from the Marshallese Branch. So i did learn how to say hi in Marshallese which is Iakwe or Yokwe. Yeah have fun pronouncing that from just reading it. We would have learned more but she spent a lot of time laughing at us. Maybe i should stick to French... My French is actually getting a lot better as i have been using it a lot more. Suprising i know! Who knew that there would be French speakers in Spokane. Not me that is for sure. I was emailing Tess Russell a bit in French so that was fun!

Well my testimony of personal revelation has been grwoing rapidly recently. It is one of the biggest things i am learning on my mission. Perosnal revelation to me means that Heavenly Father loves us and he wants to communicate with us and lead us back home.

“When you feel pure intelligence flowing into you, it may give you sudden strokes of ideas, so that by noticing it, you may find it fulfilled the same day or soon; (i.e.) those things that were presented unto your minds by the Spirit of God, will come to pass; and thus by learning the Spirit of God and understanding it, you may grow into the principle of revelation, until you become perfect in Christ Jesus.”
( Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, sel. Joseph Fielding Smith [1976], 151.)

I know that is how i recieve revelation! I know that it comes piece by piece. Then when you look back at all the knowledge you have gained you can realize what the Spirit was trying to tell you. I know that we need a time of piece and quiet in our lives so that we can hear the whisperings of the spirit. Our Heavenly Father loves us and he is the same yesterday, today and forever. He speaks today to a prophet and to us individually through the Holy Ghost!

I love you all and hope you are doing well. Don't be afraid to write me! I love hearing from all of you :)
Love Sister Robinson
