Week 33 - Giving Blessings

Hello everyone! How are all of you? Some better then others I assume because of the recent BYU vs. Utah game! My week was really good. I had many opportunities to give blessings this week. The first we gave to a young member who asked us for one because she felt sick. After we finished I saw the mother of this young girl with tears in her eyes because she recognizes the power and importance of the priesthood. Another time one of our investigators fell and broke a few fingers and she said after the blessing she felt a peace enter in her starting from her head to her feet. She wasn´t able to go to church because she had an appointment Sunday so she will not be able to be baptized until after I leave (if i leave this area that is). I love this area and the people here. I have learned so much here. Transfers are this coming week so I will not right until Tuesday next week.

This Sunday was really great, a young member received the priesthood and is way excited about passing the sacrament next week! I am going to give him a tie ;) I taught the class and i talked about always choosing the right. We aren´t immune to the world but we can still protect our selves from it. Satan always works little by little I used a scripture in Alma 47 6-19 which I really like. After the class I taught primary for the second time in 2 weeks! WOW that is a mad house with those little kids. I have a new found respect for primary teachers. I was pulled every way and was drawn on with chalk and the kids always take the plaque.

An inactive family came to church and the president was talking to the young girl who turned 8 a little while ago. He asked her who do you want to baptize you? The father in the family is not a member and her uncle is the president. She told him that she wants me to do it. I am honored that she would chose me to do it. The baptism is this Saturday and you are all invited ;)

That is all for this week Thank you for all the love and support!
Love, Elder Smart
