You can't out run a thunder storm :)

April 4th 2016:

Sister Morgan and I learned the hard way that you can't out run a thunderstorm, no matter how fast you can run. 
 What kind of fish fixes musical instruments?
A piano "tuna."
Man, do I have a miracle for you! After a lesson we had  Sister Morgan felt prompted to walk around the neighborhood, as we walked I had the thought to knock on this random door, I ignored it but it quickly came back! So I told Sister Morgan that we should knock on this door. This sweet young mom named Jessica opened the door. We showed her the Easter video and testified of eternal families, and that she has the chance to be with her family forever. She shared with us that she lost her husband a couple of years ago, and she hopes she can see him again. We told her she will see him again, and asked if we could come back to explain how that is possible. She gave us her address, apparently that wasn't even her house, it was her moms and she wasn't even suppose to be there when we showed up!! Gods hand WAS in it! If that wasn't a miracle I don't know what was. Anyways, we showed up for our lesson (which she remembered-they never remember) and got started right away. As soon as we started talking about how she was a daughter of God and he knows her inside and out, the spirit just enveloped the room! You could not deny the spirit at that moment, it was so powerful. And it was instant that we felt it! It was the strongest when we testified of families and how they were created to last after the grave. You could just see hope enter her heart. She has felt sad, lost, and confused for several years. She does not have the knowledge of where her husband is right now, she said she hopes he is okay. We are so blessed to have the knowledge that our loved ones that have passed away are being taken care of. I will be forever grateful for this chance that I have to tell people like Jessica that she will be with her husband again! We shared the rest of the lesson, and she just soaked it all up! We committed her to be baptized onMay 14th, she was so happy when we asked, and said she is going to take it off work right when she gets in!! 

Are you past feeling?
1 Nephi 17:45 Ye are swift to do iniquity but slow to remember the Lord your God. Ye have seen an angel, and he spake unto you; yea, ye have heard his voice from time to time; and he hath spoken unto you in a still small voice, but ye were past feeling, that ye could not feel his words; wherefore, he has spoken unto you like unto the voice of thunder, which did cause the earth to shake as if it were to divide asunder.
Are you to the point where you can't feel the spirit talking to you anymore? And you can't feel his words? If you have gotten to that point where you can't recognize God speaking to you, get on your knees and pray! You can NOT get through this life without the promptings of the spirit. The Sprit takes you down a path of peace and happiness, I can promise you if you repent and change the spirit will guide you and you will be able to recognize the spirit again. Don't let yourself get past feeling, be diligent in your daily scripture study and prayer. God loves you and he wants to guide you, but he can't if you aren't listening. So listen to the prophets and apostles! The lord speaks through them! I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of the Lord and his only purpose is to testify of our Savior, I can promise you if you listen to him that he will help you recognize the voice of the spirit again. Heed to his words and don't let this happen to you- 1 Nephi 19:9 And the world, because of their iniquity, shall judge him to be a thing of naught; wherefore they scourge him, and he suffereth it; and they smite him, and he suffereth it. Yea, they spit upon him, and he suffereth it, because of his loving kindness and his long-suffering towards the children of men.

We just got the transfer email and Sister Morgan and I are staying together in St Pete! Yay!

Everyone will hear my message!

Sister Morgan and I

It's Conference! Wahoo!!

This is how I feel about the heat coming. But on the bright side, I'm wearing pants :D (ps Sister Morgan is queen of taking pictures when I'm not paying attention, so here is a candid photo for you)

How are you following Christ?
