First off, I hope everyone had a great Easter! It was a great Easter week in American Fork! I mentioned this in my last email about the Because of Him video. We shared that video with everyone that we were in contact with whether it was a relief society President that we were meeting with, less actives, members, EVERYONE! We shared that video and bore our testimony of the importance of Easter and what Jesus Christ means to us. We had many great experiences sharing the video. I loved watching people's expression's as they watched the video, I could tell they were feeling the spirit. I loved seeing the light in their eyes. I loved that the video applies to each and everyone of us that Because of Him we can start a new life again, Because of Him we have the Atonement, Because of Him we can live again. Word cannot express how much I love my Savior. I am so grateful for this time that I have on the mission that I am a representative of Jesus Christ and can share that with others.
We have taught a lot of less active lessons and recent convert lessons which have been amazing! I love teaching less actives, they know the difference of what they are missing. It is so neat to be with them through their process of getting reactivated and coming back to church and helping them reach their next ordinance.
Another family that we are teaching that I mentioned before. We actually teach them in English. They are 3 kids and we teach them in English. I love them so much, I have grown so close to them since I have been here in American Fork. They are such a joy to teach and they are so funny. Every lesson we have with them is an adventure. This past week we taught them tithing and fasting. And we read the Book of Mormon with them. We are having a Family Home Evening tonight with them. We also have been helping them a few times a week with their homework. They usually want help with their math homework, my companion is a Math Education major so she usually takes over with that haha. I help them with other stuff like spelling or writing papers, history, science. That's more my speed haha.
Charles-Thanks for sending all the pictures when Mom was in China. I am so glad you all had a great time!
Thanks for all the love and support, I love you all!
