A letter from November 21, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!  I can't believe I have already been in Omaha for 6 weeks-time flies.  It has been such a blessing for Sister Whittaker and I to be around each other still because we are always experiencing similar emothions and feelings!  She had her first baptisms last week, and it was so fun to hear all about that!

A few weeks ago we visited an older couple named the Evans in our ward.  They are AMAZING.  She is always serving people and you can feel his testimony.  He just got called to be a service missionary and you can tell that it is really exciting for him to put that name tag on.  We committed them to study from Preach My Gospel daily and promised them that if they did, the person that they were thinking of would have a change of heart about the gospel.  Last Sunday, Sister Evens came up to us and, in tears, told us that she has been doing exactly what we asked her to do.  Her daughter who lives in a neighboring ward is married to a man who isn't a member of the church, but last week, he held a family council and told her that he didn't feel right about sitting at home while his wife and kids were at church, so he will be attending with them from now on.  I know that the blessings we promise are not our own- Our Heavenly Father is so incredibly aware of each person we come in contact with.
