Aug. 10, 2015 in Greensboro, NC


Hey Hunter and Em, a neat thought came up during church this Sunday. Our lesson was on families and someone mentioned that your siblings are your longest relationship on this earth, because you won't usually meet your spouse until you are 20 or so, and we usually don't outlive our parents. I can't think of 2 people that would be better to know for 70 years on this earth :) sure love ya! 

So this week was actually pretty amazing! We are having more and more success  and I feel that we are really genuinely helping people. I'm loving the ward even more each week, I love being in an area for more than 2 transfers :)

So a couple highlights, we had a super spiritual lesson about eternal families with the Q. family at a dinner. The wife and we were definitely feeling the spirit hard core. She came up on Sunday again, thanked us for it, and started to cry again. They are super nice!! So pray for them please!

We also had a lesson with the S's that resulted in tears. We were reading from where they were at in the Book of Mormon and it happened to be 1st Nephi 18 where it talks about building the boat after the manner of God, and we had a great discussion. We were able to bring one of the absolutely fantastic young men in this ward named M. with us.  :)

Finally we went and visited Sister P., and had a really good visit. She asked "why do people always say God loves you when he gives you trials?" We showed the Mormon Message "Refiners fire" where it talks about trials allow us greater future happiness and it was good. Then we gave her a blessing and it was amazing. I was the voice, and she made it clear she didn't just want a "God loves you" blessing, but a truly inspired one. I don't remember all that was said, but it was very powerful and she said it had answered some specific questions she hadn't even told us about, it was amazing! The spirit #waytooreal :)

We taught R. and he is super great! Pray for him please! :)
