Eternal consequences

Dear Whanau,
   Hello! and happy February!  :) And Happy Birthday Deven! I hope you had a great day! I had to explain about groundhogs day to the people here. They haven't heard of it before.
   This week was a good week. SO crazy though! We went to Invercargill for exchanges and I went up to Wellington to a missionary council meeting. It was so good and I met this really nice man on the airplane ride home. His name is Alan. I talked to him a bit and was able to give him a card. He told me I would make a great salesperson. Luckily for everyone the message we are sharing with people isn't something we are trying to sell, but give freely to all those who will take it.
    In district meeting this week, Elder Kerr one of our Zone Leaders made this comment about D&C 29:34 "Wherefore, verily I say unto you that all things unto me are spiritual, and not at any time have I given unto you a law which was temporal; neither any man, nor the children of men; neither Adam, your father, whom I created." Elder Kerr made the comment that all laws are this way even when they seem extremely temporal like having a budget, exercise, and keeping our houses clean. They may seem temporal but they really do have spiritual consequences for eternity.
   Today, my companion and I were walking to the bus determined to talk with at least 10 people each toady. So we stopped and talked to 2 people and then realized the bus was coming so we ran to catch the bus, but we missed it. We were both pretty sad and I saw this man sitting next to the bus stop. We walked past him and sat down and talked about the bus leaving us for a minute, then I said lets go talk to that man. We did so and he opened up to us and shared how his wife had passed away two years ago and his mother in that time. I have a testimony that Heavenly Father will prompt us to be at a place where we are needed most even if we do not recognize those promptings. There really are people who are ready and wanting to hear the gospel. Never be afraid to give a portion of that hope that is within you to other people.
I love you all! Have a great week!

p.s. Don't forget to smile to people; it is a way of doing service :)
