Tingling Sensation

I hope you all had a good week this week. Ours was pretty eventful with a few trade offs with our crazy but wonderful Samoan sisters and had some pretty cool experiences in our wards. The message that was shared a few times this week was on the spirit. In 3 Nephi 11 it says 

 "And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, they heard voice as if it came out of heaven; and they cast their eyes round about,for they understood not the voice which they heard; and it was not harsh voice, neither was it loud voice;nevertheless, and notwithstanding it being small voice it did pierce them that did hear to the center, insomuch that there was no part of their frame that it did not cause to quake; yea, it did pierce them to the very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn."

We talked about how the spirit can be hard to hear, so if we are too focused on the things of the world then we wont be able to hear what Heavenly Father is trying to tell us. We had a lesson with one of our favourite family's the other night. We also talked about listening to the spirit and trusting in the Lord, because exercising faith sometimes requires sacrifice. His wife just left for Australia and he is working 16 or 17 hour shifts to save enough money to fly him and his kids over to be with her. His mum also testified of the sacrifices she had to make as a single parent to raise her children and still be faithful in the church. The spirit was so strong and I was grateful for their testimonies on faith and understand that Gods plan and purpose for us is so much greater than our own. That they trusted in him and listened to the spirit to guide them to know what to do and because of it they are blessed. They may have to or had to give up their time and some other things, but God gave them back much more. I am grateful for our Father in Heaven and the blessing we have of the gift of the Holy Ghost and if we are worthy of it then it can guide us and help us make those decisions and help us get to where we need to be.

I hope you all had a good week. Love you heaps. Also don't worry about us and the earthquakes we didn't feel it where we are and haven't heard of and tsunami warnings!!

Kia Kaha,
