Hello from Dad - September 1

Hey Daddy!
  The pictures of your ride in Arizona  look beautiful. I'm glad you and Andre were able to have another amazing trip together and with all the men. You all look fabulous! 
  Well this week we didn't have any huge miracles but we definitely learned a lot of lessons for our selves. One miracle we did have was dooring into one of our ward members' daughters. I have met her already a few times before and so she knew who we were but she let us in and actually has a lot of interest. She was so open and friendly and told us if there were more people in the world of our faith it would be a better place. AMEN! Sister Tidwell and I haven't been able to bear our testimonies lots or teach a lot of random people because they shut the doors right after we say ''church''. With our ward members' daughter however, we were able to teach her about the Book of Mormon and share our testimonies of it. It was so amazing to hear her read from Moroni 10:3-5, it strengthened my testimony. She wouldn't set up a new date with us but she said she would tell her mother, our ward member, when we could meet again. It was just a really great Spirit meeting with her. 
   On Wednesday we had our ward missionary correlation meeting called GMKo in German. Our Ward Mission Leader can be a tough person to talk to but we have been working well together for the past little while. Anyways at the end of our meeting we left him with a little lesson from a quote Elder Busche said to a group at BYU in 1996. He said when its hard to love someone look them in the eyes and see their potential and divine nature as children of Heavenly Father. Well just as we had explained that, he went on to tell me how horrible my German is and how no one can understand me. And the thought just came into my head to look into his eyes and see his potential as a child of God. Sometimes it is really hard to love him but this GMKo taught me the principle I was trying to teach. Afterwards, Sister Tidwell said that we have to be willing to be taught by the spirit as we teach by the spirit. I think that is a very true principle. 
  We have a lot of finding time this week and a lot of chances to see little miracles. We're excited! Thanks for all your love and support Dad. I hope you have a great week and are able to get a little more rested from your travels. Love you!
