Yesterday was interesting. We had two wards to be at that started at the same time, so we found splits and I went to church with Rachel while Sister Cha went to church with Daisy. While I was with Rachel, I SAW RYAN SMITH! Ahhh made my whole day. How come nobody told me he was in Provo? That was the best. All three hours were really good and I learned a lot, especially from the testimonies during Sacrament Meeting. It's cool how sometimes Heavenly Father answers our prayers through other people. That happened for me yesterday and I was grateful for it. I think Rachel really enjoyed church too, so that was good. And we got to see Connor last night! We talked about the Doctrine and Covenants (since that's what he'll be studying in Sunday School this year) and about how is Christmas with his family was. It was really good to see him.
When I get home I want to be more assertive about missionary work. I was always pretty good about sharing the gospel when people had questions or wanted to know more about me and what I believe, but I think it's important that we not be afraid to share the gospel with others. We shouldn't be worried it'll ruin our relationships with friends, classmates, and coworkers, or that they'll be offended, or reject what we have to say. We never know when it's the right time for someone to hear the truth and accept it. I'm learning that more every day. We've found so many people who have been searching and praying to find the truth, but like the scriptures say, "they know not where to find it." I urge you guys to sincerely and faithfully pray for missionary opportunities. If you do, and if you act on promptings you receive, you'll have those experiences! In the MTC they taught us to not be surprised by miracles, but to expect them. This is the Lord's work and it's the most important thing we can be apart of!
