Dear family and friends,
Can I just talk about Sister Plehn for a minute? ;) Whaat? She is on fire!! This amazing sister sees a little boy and his mom while we are filling up our gas tank, and decides that we are going to go into this tiny, sketchy gas station to talk to them! So, we go inside and guess what? Now we are teaching the sweetest family! :) When we went to go visit them, D, the mom, opened up to us and said that she wants to quit smoking. She also had a ton of questions to ask us! So prepared! And her two kids always have questions about God and Jesus that she can't always answer, so she wants us to teach them so that we can help answer those questions, too! :)
I love watching Sister Plehn embrace her calling. She knows Who she represents! We've seen so many miracles from her desire to talk with everyone we see.
Another miracle! We went store contacting the other day to get some much-needed groceries (since we weren't able to on Monday because of a big storm!! Tornado warnings and all...). As we were walking around, I saw a lady who looked like she was having a hard day. I asked her, "One of those days?" And she nodded. We started to walk away, and then Sister Plehn turns around and strikes up a conversation with her!! Right there in the middle of the store. I was in awe. Because I'm an introvert, it's a lot harder for me to begin conversations in situations like that, especially since I don't want the store managers to get mad at us or cause any trouble. (That's the "natural man" side of me that I've been working on overcoming.)
But anyway, we keep talking for a bit and she ends up telling us how she's had a lot of deaths in her family lately and she doesn't know what's going to happen to them after this life. She asked us what we thought and we were able to testify to her that she would be able to see them again! We introduced the lessons to her and she now wants us to come back to teach her! :)
There are so many more that I could share. But I am out of time, so I'll summarize.
1. GENERAL CONFERENCE WAS AMAZING!! BEST ONE YET! (Of course it keeps getting better and better!) If you didn't watch it, go to lds.org and watch it or read the talks! They are amazing and your prayers will be answered as you seek guidance from the Lord's prophets!)
2. Trust in the Spirit and follow its every prompting, immediately, and you will find success and joy! (Answered prayer from that one!)
3. Sometimes, things don't work out the way you'd like them to. But as you turn to the Lord and follow in His footsteps, He will guide you on a better path! :)
My invitation to y'all is to listen the promptings of the Spirit and act immediately! I know that as you do so, you will be protected, given answers you seek, and you will be blessed with comfort from knowing you are doing the right thing!
Keep smiling, and have a blessed week. :) Y'all are amazing!
