Week 61

Happy Day all of you!

First of all...Congratulations on graduating, Preston!!!! I'm so proud of you! 

We have been focusing on getting new investigators...it's a process. 
We also helped a member paint the outside of their house on Saturday which was quite a project! 
Oh and Sister Abad has been teaching me the National Anthem for the Philippines. (That's right Hannah)

This week while on an exchange with Sister Ulin we had a lesson with the brother of a Recent Convert. He's been coming to church with his older brother and we had been teaching him off and on, but he "hadn't been receiving an answer" if he should be baptized or not. In our lesson we talked to him about the Book of Mormon and recognizing the Spirit. He told us that he felt good every time he read and prayed about it, but that he hadn't read the whole thing yet. We assured him that he didn't have to read the entire book to know if it's true and that the peace he was feeling was the Holy Ghost. He immediately recognized the answer that God had been giving him. He agreed to be baptized. Now we just need to work on getting his mom's permission.

I read about the brother of Jared this week in the book of Ether. 
It is very applicable to us in these days if we look at the barges as our homes and the stones as our covenants. In Chapter 6 verse 7 it says,
"And it came to pass that when they were buried in the deep there was no water that could hurt them, their vessels being tight like unto a dish . . . " 

I know that as we strengthen our homes and help members strengthen their homes that they will not be "water that [can] hurt them". 

I love you all!

Sincerely, Sister Matheson

Sleepovers with the Sisters in our house.

This little girl in our ward did my hair while we were doing service....too cute!
