Follow Your Heart!

July 11, 2016

Dear familia,
Sounds like things continue to be eventful at home! Which is great!

This week has been so wonderful here in Mesa! Earlier in the week Hermana Loynd and I were in the Visitors Center and another set of sisters came to get us for a tour for a man who had never been to the Visitors Center before. They talked to him for a few minutes and let us know that he is interested in learning more about the gospel! Kevin told us a little bit about himself and shared with us that he went to the Salt Lake temple visitors center several years ago and has never forgotten the peace that he felt there. Ever since then he has felt like his heart has been pulling him to the Mormon church. He was visiting from New Mexico and thought to visit the
temple here in Arizona. He called the Gilbert temple and they directed him to the visitors center! It was so amazing to hear his testimony of what the Holy Ghost has taught him throughout his life to then be ready to accept the gospel in his life! So amazing!

A little later on in the week we were in our area and teaching one of our less actives, Candy. We went over to follow up on reading the Book of Mormon. She didn't do it so we read with her. We finished reading with her and after a little bit she then told us that she told her husband that she would go back to church when it feels right in her heart! I know that she will have an experience that will touch her heart and she will act on her desire to go to church! :)

On Saturday afternoon we went to go visit a referral we received from the English missionaries! Her name is Lupe and she is hilarious! She is a little bit older than most of our current investigators! :) We went with one of the English members who is her neighbor. We had an interesting lesson including the member sharing her testimony and what the gospel has done for her with an analogy of crusty jelly doughnuts, but it worked! Lupe is so good and desires that Christ is more in her life! The interesting thing is that she prefers Spanish because the gospel language sticks more in her heart in Spanish! :)

This morning in honor of my trainer going home next week, we did a scavenger hunt as visitors center sisters! Which was so much fun! And so great to spend time with sisters who have changed me for the better!

I know that the greatest thing we can do is have Christ's name written upon our hearts like it says in Mosiah 5:12 and as we follow our heart by doing so we will be led to what is right! I know that the Lord will never lead us astray! I love being a missionary!

I love you all! Have a fantastic week!

Con amor,
Hermana Hart
