Happy May!

Dear Whanua,
  We had a great week this week: exchanges, district meeting, being led by the spirit and seeing less-actives come to church. We were so excited to see Christine Fraser who we helped clean her gutters come to church on Sunday. That was so exciting for us and we were so happy about that! She is less active, but has voiced desires to come back to church and go to the temple. We are excited for her and were able to give her a New and Returning member progress form so we could help her progress to coming back to church. We are excited for this upcoming week for more service and telling people about the Stake conference on May 18th. We were able to knock on this door on white street and visit with this man. He had just visited with the Elders on the street a couple of days ago, but we were able to visit with him more and talk to him about Prophets and what we do as missionaries. It is wonderful to see the Lord prepare people in steps to here the gospel or to hear more parts of the gospel. What a blessing to witness such miracles!
   We also helped someone clean her yard, another less active. I hope we can help them come back to church and stay fully active forevermore. I know the Lrod would bless them so much with eternal blessings. Hope to be able ot help them see that and feel the Lord's love for them.
  Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful bithday and the sisters who came up down from Timaru helped celebrate it with us. (we had exchanges). I learned how to throw shockput (sp?) we had a competition after we finished cleaning, my companion is a professional athlete, she is good! We had fun and a good laugh and went back to work.
    Something I loved that was shared yesterday was that when we pray, there is real power in prayers. When Joseph Smith prayed he recieved an answer. He also received more than he asked for. He asked to know which chruch was true, he was told not to join any of them, he was chosen to be the prophet of the dispensation and was given a Book to translate that talked more about God and what he has to Share with us. The same thing happens when we pray. We recieve more than we ask for, and all of that because Heavenly Father loves us more than we can possibly imagine and only wants to bless and change us. 
   I hope you all have a great week! Be like the Stipling Warriors firm and steadfast always abounding in good works. Never doubt that your ancetsors knew and know the truthfulness of this Gospel. I know this is the Church of Jesus Christ. His church is a church of order, and I know that this Church is made exactly after the Blueprint He estalisehd when he was on Earth so long ago, I love this gospel. I know Thomas S. Monson is the prophet for our day and Jospeh Smith was called of God. One of the Elders said it so well, I would die for this Gospel if the Lord needed me to. I know Families can be together forever. I am grateful that the Lord has given me this time to proclaim this to all the World.
I love you all! 
Sister Sudweeks
