Time In The Temple & a "Heart Attack"

Hey everybody,

This past week we've had lots of tender mercies and miracles amidst partially melting out in the hot, humid weather!

The first tender mercy was when we were having a lesson with some people named Mike, Kim, and Marshel. We asked Mike to read verse 4 of Moroni 10:3-5, and instead of saying "ye" he said "y'all" throughout the entire verse. Literally made my day. God blesses us with a good laugh every once in a while!

On Thursday we went to the temple as a mission for the last time with the Hanks'. It was a special experience and we had a good time. We also got to help with the laundry afterwards (along with the Florence sisters) and it's an entirely new, awesome experience working in the temple and not just going for a session!

While out on a team up with Sister Stark, we had nothing on our agenda after our appointments and we decided to visit a member who is working on coming back to church. We called her and she said, "I was thinking about calling you earlier, but I didn't. I figured you were busy. Then about 30 minutes later you called me!" She went on to say that she had been wanting to cook a good meal yesterday, but something told her to wait until today...which worked out because our dinner appointment had canceled...and we had a great visit over dinner with her. :) The spirit works in mysterious ways, and God definitely provides for His hungry missionaries!

Last week we met one of our neighbors, Brandy. We had a great time chatting with her and she had lots of questions about our missionary work. We came to know that she is having a rough time in life right now. An idea came to mind that we could "heart attack" her front door with encouraging scriptures and messages. We had planned on doing it for a couple days, but we just didn't get around to it until Sunday evening. While doing 12 week later on, we had a knock on our door. It was Brandy! She was SO grateful for our simple gesture. She said that she had been having an especially hard two days and that the timing of our heart attack couldn't have been better. I'm very grateful for the guidance of the spirit!

Sister Oscarson and I have been doing lots of tracting and are enjoying our summer in Russellville. Hope everyone enjoys the 4th of July next week! One of my favorite holidays!

God bless,

Sister Griffith
