Sing and Smile - Notes From 5 December, 2014
I met Sister Taggart's parents this past week! Sister Taggart was my companion outbound from
the DC North Mission. She's great. And her parents were so nice!
Miracle time. This man named Dawn brought his granddaughter Kristen and Kristen's husband
Alvaro and their 2 little ones to Temple Square. Back story: Dawn is not even a member! He is
pentecostal. But he testified to Kristen that this church is true and asked Kristen to refer herself
to the missionaries. We are going to teach Kristen and Alvaro this Sunday! We are so excited to
teach a family.
Sing n Smile is the most fun thing we get to do around Christmas time! We get to sing Christmas
hymns and Christmas carols while people are walking by on the Square. If you're ever there for
the lights and see sisters singing, don't be afraid to join in! There was this one night that an old
man with a walker named Merlin and his grand daughters were watching us sing. He was getting
pretty into the songs, so we invited him to sing with us. He sat on his walker chair in the middle
of the sisters and led us in "O Holy Night." It was so fun!
A statue of President Monson
Okay. The ultimate Relief Society. You will never guess what happened. So we went to the Relief
Society Building for Relief Society, and guess who was there to speak to us?? All 3 members of
the General Relief Society, President Linda K. Burton, Sister Stephens, and Sister Reeves, as well
as the entire General Relief Society Board. They gave each us the Sisters a beautiful card with
each of their signatures on it. WOW! We even got a picture with Sister Burton! They told us how
important it is to read the book, "Daughters of my Kingdom." Challenge accepted.
Statue of Heavenly Father and His Son
We ate at the Lion House this past week, and it was
yummy as always. We then opened packages
courtesy of my mom. YIPPEE!
We are getting so busy with setting appointments with
investigators! How exciting! I had mentioned
last week about the total MIRACLE that had happened.
As we were inviting Mostafa to go to church in one of our
lessons last week, he told us he was actually going to be
in SLC that weekend instead of his home city of Washington
DC! He ended up coming to our sacrament meeting when I
was going to be speaking. Mostafa came with his son,
Thomas, and they both really enjoyed sacrament!
We will call and hopefully start teaching both Mostafa and
his son very soon.
Something so funny. The missionary department has gotten
every sister on Temple Square matching white scarves that
we HAVE to wear every night that the lights are one so everyone
can distinguish us from the guests. Pretty funny. So if you know
of any fun ways to tie a scarf, please let me know!
We had a dessert night last night, put on by a Relief Society from a ward in Brigham City. So nice of
them! We really appreciated it.
I love you all! But more importantly, know how much Heavenly Father loves you. Trials are meant to
make us stronger and give us more experience in this life to one day prepare to meet God.
