“Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.” (Alma 37:37)

Because He Lives!

Dear Family and Friends,

This week we didn't get to watch conference!!  We watch it next week!! So that you for being mindful of me and not spoiling it!!haha  This week has flown by... like always!!! haha Last Monday after we emailed we went to dakeng and saw the monkeys!!! It was awesome!!  We came back and ate this awesome chidaobao!!  This week we really tried to focus our efforts on sharing the message of Easter.  No one here knows what Easter is.. and if they do they only know about the bunny and the eggs!!  haha,  there is an amazing video... I am sure that you have seen it.  It is called BecauseHeLives.  We went around sharing this with everyone this week!!  We had them pulling it up right then and there on their phones and watching it.  We also had a free car wash where people could come park at the church go inside and watch the video while we washed their skooters and cars.  It was amazing to see them come out.  They all came out of that church a little different than when they walked it.  It was awesome!!  

Monday we met with P and V and their son.  They are honestly just the most amazing family ever.  We taught them and gave them baptismal goals!!  Church will be the main thing for them.  They are always very busy.  They feel the power of prayer and it has affected their lives.    

Saturday we had an awesome experience!!  There is a thing called saomu "sweeping tombs"  It is
Grave Sweeping
where families go and clean and sweep their loved ones tombs.  We got to go and participate in that this week.  It was really neat, and neat to know that these people are being taught right now in the spirit world.  Such a cool experience!!!

We were able to meet with an active member in the ward this week who has been super busy with work.  As I was reading in personal study, I just couldn't seem to find anything that really jumped out to me.  Finally as I read in Mosiah 24 it read about the lord making their burdens seem light.  It really hit me.  So that night as we met with him, I know I needed to share that with him.  He expressed that he has been struggling recently and that this was exactly what he needed to hear.  It was really neat.  It was like in that moment I knew exactly what he needed and we both knew that it was true.  So amazing.  

I love you all so much and want you all to know that Because He Lives all of us have the opportunity to find peace and happiness regardless of the situations we face!  We are not only on this earth to grow and learn, I am fully convinced we are also here to be happy.  Let us all commit to doing something this week to bring us closer to our Savior and experience the true happiness that his perfect life has given us.

I love you all so much and pray for you.  Keep the faith!!
