WEEK 31- revelation upon revelation

Well that was so fun to Skype with you all...we hope your Christmas was wonderful!! Thank you so much for the cards and packages. you have no idea what mail is to a missionary.  I am a blessed girl.

Mom  asked her about driving in Montana: It's cold! It's icy!

Haha but it's good! I just drive like a grandma and it's all good:)

 Office Christmas tree! Our MTC group together!
                                                                                                                                                               One night we had a bus that took our zone Christmas Caroling.......its just a GREAT part 
of the Season

Holy cow another week is gone! How does that keep happening?! This week was amazing. I've never felt so much love and the Spirit of Christ and Christmas so strongly.  We were able to serve others and so many people  Blessed our lives.

This is the Stake President in our mission.  He is one of the most spiritual men I know.  I am Learning so much from him and his amazing wife.  (please notice our daughter is barefoot even in Montana...tee hee~ she said every chance she gets.)

Real quick I just want to share a little miracle...About a month ago, Sister Rasmussen and I had to give a training at zone conference about the Spirit and how to receive revelation. I can definitely tell you that once again, I think I learned WAY more than anyone else but one of the things we talked about is how with revelation, it doesn't always come all at once, a
huge outpouring of the Spirit and a voice that says "GO HERE". 
There's a scripture in doctrine and covenants 42:61 that says "If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things--that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal"

Well we had a little time so we thought we would go by a house that we had a referral
to!  It was FREEZING cold and a little snowy and guess what. Literally NO ONE WAS HOME.  We were just a little confused as to why we felt good about this area. We were sure we're there for a reason…. We started walking to the next street and we saw this one guy walking a little ways away...  a cigarette in one hand and a 6 pack of beer in the next. He looked really down. So naturally we had to talk to him! I ran up and got his attention and we struck up a conversation.He had lost his Grandmother and his other was in the hospital…he had a lot of questions and his heart hurt ....we were able to show him the video "a Savior is born" and testify of the joy, comforts and peace that is possible because of Him.   He said to us "I've just been feeling so lost lately but I feel like God is leading my back to Him and that's why I met you two today".

It was just such a cool experience to see first hand, "revelation upon Revelation.”

It's a beautiful thing to help our brothers and sisters recognize and come to know for themselves that our Heavenly Father knows them and loves them.

I love you all and hope you had a Merry Christmas!! Work hard, pray always and love much!!
