Last night we taught a family. The fathers name is Santana. We taught them about the Plan of Salvation or the Plan of Happiness and the pathway Christ has lead for us to follow. Santana listened and commented rather profoundly about the topics we discussed and I could really see he had a desire to do what is best for his family. At the end of the lesson we asked him if he would offer a prayer for his family. We kneeled down together and he prayed and thanked our Heavenly Father for his blessing and prayed for the well being of his children, his wife, and his sick grandmother. It was honest and sincere and I was grateful to be there. I know that prayer is powerful and that our Heavenly Father listens to our prayers. Sometime we don't think he answers but that's because we have stopped listening. Sometimes the answers are very discreet and don't come in big blatant letters in the sky. But they come through our obedience to his commandments and by doing the simple things that we should be doing. If we are reading the scriptures daily, praying, and attending church, He will answer us because He loves us and we are his children. I have a strong testimony of the power of prayer and know that I am never alone. I feel so happy.
I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!
