Hello Everyone!                                   8 May 2012

So this week is going really well!

We're getting more people to teach; greater trust from our ward where we are serving and things have gotten better because of repentance.

I know that our immediate situation improves because of repentance, understanding the Atonement. Our relationship to God is so important to our repentance. When we understand Deity, our repentance is far more significant.

We can feel the Spirit more in our lives and we can know, through the Spirit, our purpose in this life and what we should do if we want righteousness; the Spirit works for that goal in our lives.

When opportunities come; which they will, we need to tell God what we're going to do, what we're doing and what we did. We should also share our thoughts throughout the experience. I can promise that the more we do these things, our trust and relationship will improve with God.

So this last week we got the chance to meet Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles. His words to us were AWESOME! We also got to meet Elder Jensen of the Seventy. When they were in the room - there was so much light! Things were GREAT!

For those who wonder if The Church is true, you don't need to meet an Apostle or the Prophet. Simply repenting and praying and attending Fast and Testimony Meeting will bring even more light - if not the same light as meeting a 'Called Servant of God. The witness is still the same from the Spirit. It's been amazing to me to see that and experience it.

I love you all. I'm going to send some recordings to y'all of my spiritual experiences. Enjoy!
