It has just been snowing like crazy these past couple of days! But don't worry-I'm not frozen...yet! This week me and Sister Lindquist gave a training on the Holy Ghost to our district, it went really well and it really helped us in the week. We have taught Charlie about everyday, the spirit has been really strong in the many lessons. We also had a lesson with Dan, we watched the restoration, there was a strong spirit and afterwards he went back to where Joseph Smith saw God and re-watched it:-)
We had a really tender moment this week when we got a text from one of the sisters in our ward who is a great lady who comes out with us a lot. The back round story on this is that one day while meeting with her she told us that she had the hardest time remembering to say her morning prayers, so we gave her a prayer rock. It was a rock about the size of two hands clasped together with the words, "did you think to pray?" written on them. She put it on her bed. A few days later her grandson who hasn't been raised in the church, came downstairs and found this prayer rock and asked her "Granny what is this rock?" She than went on to explain what a prayer rock was. A few days ago we received this text " I almost cried this morning I was taking my grandson to school when he asked me if I was going to pray, so I stopped in the driveway and said a prayer".
It's amazing that a small thing like a rock can make such a difference! No matter how small the things we do are, they have the power to make a big difference. As it says in Alma 37:36, " but behold I say unto, that by small and simple things are great things come to pass." Though we may feel small at times and incapable of doing grand or extravagant things, we need to remember it is through small and simple things that we can help others and that no effort that we put in is wasted. Love you all! Have a great week!Sister Rawlings
