yo! yo homies! Today was the best day EVER because I just talked to my MOM!! Mother's day is the most bomb holiday ever! good heck. But not only was today but this week has been gooooood.
So lemme tell ya about a little miracle we saw last week! So we knew we needed to teach Jack the Word of Wisdom but were a little hesitant because we knew it's be a problem. We went into the lesson and geez was it going rough. He grew up in a REALLY tough situation and has been drinking and doing drugs since he was 12! He has a hard core addiction to beetlenut (an island drug) and chews anywhere from 20 to 60 a day! I felt hopeless in that lesson. Sister Fehoko was teaching and I was praying so so hard to know how I could help him understand. When all of a sudden it just came to me. I talked to him about how would treat a gift that Heavenly Father had given him. I asked him if he'd do things to ruin that gift or if he would try his best to take care of it and all of a sudden things started to click. he wasn't quite sure what to say and just looked at us and says "I'm speechless. It all makes sense now." HOLY crap are you for reals? he decided that day that he would live the Word of Wisdom and as of today it's been 2 weeks that he's been 100% drug free! He explained to us the energy and joy he's had in his life since quitting drugs and I'm just like DUH. Heavenly Father really does prepare His children to receive the Gospel. Like what drug addict just drops everything like that? The Lord sure is helping us out!
I also learned a BIG time lesson this week about how God answers prayers. I have had a question that I've been struggling with and oh geez I was getting nothing! So I decided to do something and boy did Heavenly Father stop me and put me on the right path! and I knew He'd answered my prayers because my mind was clear and for the first time I felt peace about the situation. I'm not quite sure where I'd be without this Gospel!
Also, with Mother's day today and it being away from my mom it helped me realize just how LUCKY I am to have her in my life! My mom has been my best friend for my whole life and geez do I miss her! I'm not sure what I did in the pre-earth life to get sent to her! Moms are the BEST!
thankssss for the support and love! love you alllll!
