I also think I forgot to add a really cool story that happened last week. It just reminded me because this was also on the Dunaj. We got to teach a really cool older couple from Israel! They spoke Hebrew! We talked to them about our beliefs and seriously, they really are some of the Lords elect people. They were so special. Even though they were Jewish, they did not really believe in God, but the woman was a Bible teacher. In Jerusalem. In Hebrew!! I died. And she wrote out some Hebrew for us, so now we know some Hebrew. Yeah!
Thanks to all the members in America who reached out to her and shared with her so many testimonies already! They make our job easier. I cannot believe how many people who are Americans actually really know the Mormons. I mean, in comparison to people here, who have never heard of us before. I forget, when we talk to people from larger countries, that we are actually a known religion in the world.
There are so many families everywhere! It is warm and all of a sudden there are children everywhere
we look! The Slovaks are so incredibly careful and conscious about the health of their children that in the winter, it seems we never see the children unless they are bundled very tightly into a huge stroller. And now, it is like little life exists! We have never taught so many families. We can feel the Lord blessing our lives every time we talk to them. They are really so wonderful. Families are so important to these people, and we love it!
Let me close by bearing witness (and my nine decades on this earth fully qualify me to say this) that the older I get, the more I realize that family is the center of life and is the key to eternal happiness."
This is true! This life and the next are all about families! And I have never been more grateful for my own families and the examples in my life. Thank you everyone in the whole world who has a family.
This is me and a giant firework because random
fireworks went off in our backyard this week.
