Sister Alex Hartvigsen--Jan 17, 2012

Dear family,
this week has been a good week. On Tuesday we had a dinner and a lesson with a less active women and her family. We talked about obedience and the blessings that come as we keep the commandments. We read with her in Mosiah 2:41 about how as we keep the commandments we are blessed in all things.Our ward is setting up a few families that we are going to be practice teaching the lessons to. We are excited. On Wednesday we had a lesson with a women and her sister We read the introduction to the Book of Mormon with them and talked about how we can come to know that it is true by study and prayer. One of the ladies told us that she knows this is true but she is scared at what the implications are if she joins the church. She knows that there will be opposition. We talked to her about how we are strengthened as we keep the commandments We shared Ether 12 with her and talked about faith. We are going to try and set a baptismal date with her this week. Her sister had some questions about authority and apostasy. We had brought a member with us who used to be Catholic and she was able to answer many of her questions. It was really good. On Thursday we had a lesson with the a less active/ part member family. We talked to them about 1 Nephi 8 and how we can hold to the rod of iron and recieve all the blessings that Heavenly Father has for us.
This last week, we got a new Visitor's Center director. It is going to be strange not working with our old directors. There will be many changes over the next several months are many of our senior couples and sisters leave for home. Change can be hard but it can also be really good.
I hope you have a great week. I love you all
Love Alex
