June 26, 2017 - "the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me"

Hello Family,

I am going to be really quick today because we are super busy! But I have pictures so that makes up for it!
On p-day we went to the beach and played some ball! That was pretty fun but it was kinda stormy.

This week we did missionary work and found people to teach! Wooohooo! We had President Richardson's last Zone conference and it was great! Sister Richardson cried of course. In other news, my recent convert Jacques Leon from back in Hollywood is now the Ward Mission Leader in Ft. Laud 2nd ward!  And update on Jacky, he came to church and has a date for July 8th! So we will continue to work with him this week.

A few weeks ago I talked about how we found a lady named Patricia Lane for the English Sisters, well last Saturday she got Baptized and is the newest member of the Ft. Lauderdale 2nd ward!

Also to explain the title of the email, we sang a musical number in sacrament meeting, just the 4 missionaries. We sang "All Creatures of our God and King", it was interesting, haha!

Those are the highlights and here is my last thought from President Packer: 

"The flow of revelation depends on your faith. You exercise faith by causing, or by making, your mind accept or believe as truth that which you cannot, by reason alone, prove for certainty. 

The first exercising of your faith should be your acceptance of Christ and His atonement.

As you test gospel principles by believing without knowing, the Spirit will begin to teach you. Gradually your faith will be replaced with knowledge.

You will be able to discern, or to see, with spiritual eyes.

Be believing and your faith will be constantly replenished, your knowledge of the truth increased, and your testimony of the Redeemer, of the Resurrection, of the Restoration will be as “a well of living water, springing up unto everlasting life.” You may then receive guidance on practical decisions in everyday life."

As we exercise faith in the Savior and in our Heavenly Father, we will qualify for direction in our daily lives!

Love you Guys!
