It's Been Two Years!!!

This has been an amazing week of zone conferences! Most of the talks were about testifying and the convincing power of the word, especially The Book of Mormon. President Farnsworth and I even did a little demonstration. We had 2 stepstools at the front of the chapel and we stood on them and gave a little testimony on the importance of The Book of Mormon as if we were really talking to people -- somewhat like Alma and Amulek in the beginning chapters of Alma......I was a little nervous but I knew it was what we needed to do. What I don't do for these missionaries! Oh and did I tell you it was in Spanish?! We had six companionships follow us and do the same thing. There was an incredible Spirit in the room! We have invited the missionaries to read The Book of Mormon in Spanish, marking all the scriptures that refer to, teach about, and testify of Jesus Christ. It will be an amazing experience. Want to join us?

This photo reminds me a little of that demonstration. It was taken 2 years ago in England when we were actually talking to these people about who we were and what we believed in. We ended up giving these people a pass-along card with the Church's website so they could look up some information. It really doesn't seem that long ago. But............... Today is our 2-year anniversary. We went into the MTC two years ago today. It's really hard to believe. It's been 2 years of growth for our ENTIRE family and we have been incredibly blessed.
