Dear family and friends,
Here's a little reminder for you. Things will work out. Sometimes there are long days. Sometimes you feel like giving up. Sometimes you feel lost. But there is hope. There is always hope. Keep smiling. Lift up your head, and rejoice! Walk tall, for you are beloved children of God!
There are always rays of sunshine to be found in this world of storm clouds. You just have to look up! :)
This week, we were so excited to teach all the different people that we had planned on. Then, our plans were changed (a LOT), as they usually do. Most of our appointments fell through. We had a lot of people call and cancel last minute. Or when we showed up, they weren't there. So we adjusted our plans, and kept moving forward.
I love that advice from the movie, Meet the Robinsons, that says "Keep moving forward." It is so important to remember that there are always amazing things in store if we just keep moving forward through the storm. Though we may be trudging through mud and getting drenched, we can still smile. We can still "press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope" (2 Nephi 31:20).
Rays of Sunshine!
-We were blessed with the opportunity to attend the temple with
M, a recent convert, for her first time.It was an amazing experience!
She is excited to go back again, this time with her own family names. :)
-Robin, one of our investigators, attended church! We hadn't been able to contact her for a long time, but finally we were blessed with the opportunity to teach her and invite her to church. She accepted the invitation, and then she came! :) She brought her daughter along, too, and they both loved it. They are excited to come again!
My invitation to you this week is to look up. Look up from your electronic devices and spend time looking around at the rays of sunshine in your life. Share them with others. Be the ray of sunshine for others to see!
I testify that as you do so, you will begin to recognize the good in the world. You will be able to have more hope and joy. Peace will fill your heart as you seek to do good and be the ray of sunshine!
You are all amazing. Keep smiling!
Have a blessed day,
Sister Eggett :)
