So we found out yesterday that Vietnam has officially recognized the church! It is so cool to see doors continue to open around the world!
CC (aka Sister Green) saw Sister Clay from our Georgia ward!
We had a dinner with Joe and an amazing family in our ward yesterday and Joe said "Every chapter I read testifies to me even more that the Mormon books are true. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and God speaks to each of us today."
I have spent a lot of time studying the bible this week and cross-referencing it to the Book of Mormon and church doctrine. I have learned a lot of new things and made new connections, but as I've done this I've also reflected on my gratitude for the restoration. I LOVE the youth mormon message "Orgin". It is one of my favorites because it connects the message of the restoration to each of us. I am so grateful that God encourages us to ask Him, to test Him, and see if He will not answer us. I am grateful for the ability to receive and act on personal revelation.
I love you all and miss you! Have a good week!
