Cedar City Week 5

Cedar City Week 5

(week 12)

BEST WEEK EVER. 
 This was seriously one of the best weeks of my life.
 
Did we find any new people? No
Did we have tons of appointments? No
Did we put someone on date for baptism? This close 🤏, but sadly no, not yet.
 
No No. It was the best week ever because of the Lord. And bunnies. 
 
I GOT TO HOLD A BABY BUNNY!!!! 
We went to a member appointment, and they had 3 dogs and were saying they have a bunch of critters, including bunnies. Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE bunnies. So naturally, I was very excited. Then. They were babies. I could have died of joy right then and there. This little baby, whose name was Peanut, just slept in my lap and my hand the whole lesson. It was a literal dream come true.
 
And also, a gift from the Lord. Every morning I would pray and ask my Heavenly Father for something that day. Strength, to feel capable, whatever. And everyday, I saw my prayer get answered. Many times, faster than I expected. 
 
Sometimes our testimonies ebb and flow. But I’m so grateful that my testimony of prayer is rock solid. 
 
If you don’t feel like your prayers are working: keep praying. 
 
Helaman 5:41 – And Aminadab said unto them: You must repent, and cry unto the voice, even until ye shall have faith in Christ, who was taught unto you by Alma, and Amulek, and Zeezrom; and when ye shall do this, the cloud of darkness shall be removed from overshadowing you.
 
I love the part “cry unto the voice, even UNTIL ye shall have faith in Christ.” Sometimes, we doubt. Sometimes, we aren’t sure. And that’s okay. Faith is hope for things unseen – it’s not a perfect knowledge! Testimonies develop over time, but the important thing is to endure and keep going even when things seem unsure. As we exercise faith, like a seed in the ground, it grows. I’ve seen mine grow as I push through and keep relying on the Lord, and I know you can do it too!!
 
Also, just BTW, we had a baptism. YYYAAAAYYY!!! Jaxx got baptized yesterday!!! It was a great baptism, and his family was super happy. I got to sing for it! I sang a song called “Restored” by Shauna Edwards.  Jaxx had a wonderful day, and I’m so excited for him and his family. I think his younger brother James was happiest of all though. He gave each of us at least 3 hugs. This baptism has really helped the family – their bishop said this is the happiest he’s seen them in years!! My first baptism on the mission… pretty special. 
 
Sorry for the long email… again. Love you all tons!! Keep praying for you favorite missionary!! (or at least one of them 😆)
