Last week I told you about M., who has been inactive for quite awhile and didn't want us to try to reactivate her, but was very friendly and open to our company. Well........ M. attended church again this week! Woo! Hoo! She even met with the Bishop and got everything set for her Patriarchal Blessing and a personal plan in place to prepare for the temple. After her interview M. came into Relief Society absolutely beaming! She had a whole new light about her! We're hoping the Bishop will extend a calling to her soon and get her involved serving. She'd be great in the Young Women's organization - the Young Women's Presidency totally agrees that M. would be great working with the girls. We'll see what the Bishop decides.
I was asked to speak in Sacrament meeting yesterday. I was asked to focus on a conference talk titled, "Put Your Trust in the Lord", by Elder M. Russell Ballard. I'd send you a copy but I don't actually write down my talks anymore. I just study, and make a few notes (prompts), then give my talk. Crazy, right?! I'm a pro now!
Love you guys so much!

Here's the link to Elder Ballard's talk:
Become engaged in doing what you can in sharing the great message of the Restoration of Jesus Christ.
"I quote from another successful member missionary, Clayton Christensen: “Every time you take someone figuratively by the hand and introduce him or her to Jesus Christ, you will feel how deeply our Savior loves you and loves the person whose hand is in yours” (The Power of Everyday Missionaries: The What and How of Sharing the Gospel , 1)."
