Sometimes its the simple things.....

weeeell heres the scoop.
    So sadly this week, our two awesome investigators had to get dropped.
it's sad but all is well. they know what they have felt with us, and we have alreadly done alot of good work with them and left a good impression. now they just need time, and a few more life experiences, and they will realize.
and that just makes me realize that that is how it is with all of us. we come in contact with things that leave good impressions, but we still dont realize them, until we have something happen in our lives, that makes us look to these impressions and realize what they are; it's us being shaped and molded into something even better, something kinder, more loving, more pure. and the things that happen in our lives, arent always huge crisis like things. sometimes they are just little everyday things that we really don't see.
and that is why it's important to pray to our father in heaven. he is the one who can help us the most in our lives, to see these changes, and to see who we really are. and he really is the only one who can do that. he knows us perfectly, wholly and with perfect love. he is the one who is always there FOR us to show us a better choice, a better way a better life (a happier life).
He is there, and ready to. the only one thing that we need to do is one small thing. and that is kneel down, bow our heads, and just talk to him.
a simple thing.
a simple thing that changes our lives and works miracles.
i see it more and more everyday.
well i love yall and i guess thats the scoop on this week. :)
Elder Wardell

Note from the Mom:  Elder Wardell's letter this week reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures... this scripture is found in the Book of Mormon and comes from the Book of Alma.   These are words of counsel the prophet Alma gives to his son Helaman.... This is Alma 37:37 

37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

 I too have felt the power and love  that comes from Simple prayer. I want to add my testimony to that of Elder Wardell's. I know that prayer can change our lives. I know that our Father in Heaven hears and answers our prayers. I know that Jesus Christ died that we might live.
