Happy Easter From Alabama!


Our little Florence-Russellville trio has been going well! The sisters' investigator, Charlotte, got baptized this past Saturday! She is a sweetheart. Everything went great. I missed her confirmation on Sunday, though, because Sister Stark picked me up to go to the Russellville ward. She always goes out with us every Sunday, but the past two Sundays she has been "my companion", spending all afternoon out and about. She is amazing and helps the work so much!! This past Sunday, we were in Hatton, AL, visiting some less actives and giving a Book of Mormon to a lady who requested one online. While out there, a random cow crossed the road and luckily Sister Stark was paying attention and slowed down. Thus is life in the country. We also crossed an old wooden bridge, of which I had never seen before in my life! Sister Stark has somewhat of a fear of driving on wooden bridges, but I was very proud that she didn't let out any sign of fear while going across! Haha

It was Friday when I was out with Sister Swack, and we were doing the same thing...out visiting people in the country. We came across this awesome look out point and had to snap a picture. The following day, as I was with the sisters, we came across this beautiful sunset. It almost looked like the trees were on fire! God has definitely blessed me with beautiful scenery this past week!

Easter is coming up and how amazing the knowledge we have that "He is not here: for He is risen" (Matt 28:6) May we thank God for the miraculous blessing of resurrection! "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" (1 Peter 1:3) Check out this cool video on Easter about Christ's resurrection!

May we stay continually converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and grow in grace!

Just a typical afternoon in the country.
