Hey Family!! I hope ya all had a wonderful Fathers Day!!! :) Things are goin great over here!! I have never been happier! I love Le Mars sooo much!! Its the cutest town EVER. I have made such amazing friends here and am gonna have the hardest time in the world to leave. These people have become family to me! We have continued to see SO many miracles this week! The Lord is blessing us sooo much! I am so grateful! One really cool experience we had this week was we were walkin home at 9 and were about to walk inside and I saw this couple out of the corner of my eye walkin by. I waved to them and asked them how they were doin, and they walked over to talk to us. We ended up talkin and introducin ourselves and then the lady said, "Oh .......hey so would you be able to tell us what happened to our son? He died 4 years ago from Leukemia and it terrifies me... wheres he at?" She started cryin...I was shocked. Ha Heavenly Father had completely prepared these 2 for the gospel. They basically just asked us to teach them. We ended up basically teachin the plan of salvation and told them that we know he is free from pain and safely resting in heaven. We told them that he is all around you every day, bein your guardian angel, you just can't see him. She started bawling and hugged me sayin, "You really honestly believe that? How can you be sure?" I then bore as strong of testimony as I could..tellin her I know without a doubt that this is all true. I told her about Jared and how I feel him every day and know he isn't far away at all...that I would see him again one day, and so will she see her son. We just need to live our lives in a way so we will be worthy. She grabbed me and said, "Please teach me how to do that. Teach me what you know. You guys can come over whenever you want! " We were completely shocked. Ha we said, "Oh my gosh of course!! We will teach you everything we know!!" It was sooo cool. We are goin back over this week:) I am sooo excited to see where they go!!! They are truly special.
