|I took Eddie Perez on a Temple Square tour!|
Then we took him over to the North Visitors center to see the Christus and then "God's Plan for His Family" video presentation. Right when it finished he said “this was great, Yza would totally be crying right now.” Hahah!
After a nice look at Temple Square we took him over to look around Deseret Book. It was so fun to show him all the little things the Church has to help families invite the Spirit more into their home. So we looked around there for a few minutes and he got a couple little things. Don't worry, we got a picture!
It is so incredible to see someone who I taught and challenged to be baptized barely over a month ago come to TEMPLE SQUARE and buy CTR stuff at Deseret Book! It gives me a whole new perspective on the guests we have here every day. Eddie came here during the time I was in Colorado too, before being baptized. And the sisters took him around. Just think, that could be ANYONE we meet here at Temple Square. Every single one is a potential “Eddie!” We might not ever know in this life what kind of effect we have on people. I testify even the smallest act of goodness will make an impression on people. We all have a responsibility to plant those seeds. The Lord has taught us that “the field is white already to harvest.” That means that if we do our part: be loving, be good examples, and be bold with our testimonies, those whose hearts the Lord has prepared WILL come unto Him!
The Perez family is coming to Utah for General Conference this April!!!! I'm so happy that I will be done with my mission by then because I will have more freedom to spend time with them haha!
Man, I had no idea this would all happen from that first time we simply went to Yza's door and gave her a Book of Mormon. It's INCREDIBLE! I couldn't feel any more blessed!
Another blessing came last Friday! We were ordered to close Temple Square because of all the snow! So everything Church owned totally shut down! All that we were allowed to do was go back to our apartment building and hang out! It was so fun!
Well, other than that we are just trying to stay warm!
Stay happy and CTR!
