The glory which shall be revealed in us!

Hey y'all!!!
How has your week been!
We've had another great week... as usual :)

Monday: We had p-day and also found out the exciting news of transfers! Wahoo! In the evening we saw Ralph (who is the younger brother of the twins D. and N. that we mixed up which was which). We taught him the Restoration! Hopefully we'll be able to see all three brothers together! Then we say the M. family and had a good lesson with them! We talked about the importance of obedience as well as daily scripture study and prayer. Then we quickly saw  a less active named V.
Tuesday: We saw the B. family in the morning and we read Romans 8 with them. In the afternoon we sang at Golden Age! In the evening we had a lesson with J. and K.! J. was running really late (probably forgot we were coming). So we only had time so share a quick thought, so we read Moroni 10:32 with them and talked about faith in Christ.
Wednesday we didn't go to transfer meeting! Yay!! Instead we helped out at the soup kitchen! A personal favorite! Then we saw a less active, Sister M. who just moved here. She is really nice. She lives in an assisted living so she's really lonely. We talked about the Atonement with her. Then we saw G. again and read out of the Book of Mormon with her. Unfortunately she texted us later that day asking us not to come by any more :( But now we can just go to find someone else! Then we saw Papa J. and taught him the plan of salvation! In the evening we held our first ever Book of Mormon class! So we started at the beginning. The M. Family and B. Familes came so it was exciting!!!!
Thursday before yoga day we saw a less active, S. P. quickly. We read 2 Nephi 20:31 and talked about enduring the end and finding hope through Christ. Then yoga day!!!!! It was as fun as ever!! In the afternoon we saw Sister M. again and taught her the restoration. She was baptized when she was younger, but then her family stopped going to church so she really doesn't know much about the Gospel. But she's really excited to learn about it. In the evening we saw L. and talked a little bit about the book of Mormon with him. Then we saw K. and talked about bullying (we watched a Mormon message about it with her) and peer pressure and that she should always remember how awesome she is!
Friday: We planned for the week! Then we went out and tried some people. In the evening we saw J. and read a talk from April 2015 called "Latter-day saints keep on trying". Then we saw S. and read 1 Nephi 3:7 with him about how God prepares a way for us to keep his commandments.
Saturday: In the morning we saw R. and read the talk "you matter to him" from October 2011. We recently read it with K. and thought it would help R. too! In the afternoon we saw B.and read 2 Nephi 31 with him and talked about baptism and enduring to the end! Then we met a less active teenage named J. It was a little awkward because the rest of his family aren't members so they didn't sit in and J. wasn't really interested. But he was nice and let us share a verse with him haha! Then in the evening we were out trying people. We met a man name S. who's 8 year old son is a member. His son doesn't live there most of the time, but S. said we could come by and teach him (him being S.) so yay! But while we were visiting with him outside his house, my legs got eaten a live by misquittos! I attempted counting them and when I reached 100 I gave up because I was only about half way done! So my legs have been very itchy to say the least haha!!!
Sunday we had church and there was a great turn out! J., B., Papa J., the M. Family, the B. family, K.  and a couple other less actives were there! It was super exciting!!! We tried some people in the afternoon. Then we saw J. and K. and we read a talk with them from like 1978 (I think) that talked about how just as important as praying, is listening for answers.
My spiritual thought today might be one I've shared before because I love this scripture, but it is Romans 8:18 which reads, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."

I love y'all so much and hope that y'all have a blessed week!
Love always,
Sister Amy Bennett :)
