Snoqualmie Falls

P-Day last week was a beautiful break and we drove with our Kent Sister Friends to Snoquamie Falls.  Oh, the beauty of Father's creations.  These falls are 100 feet taller than Niagara Falls but regardless of their height they are spectacular!
         We are teaching our Burmese Family, the Foke Family, the Follow-up lessons after baptism.  They are dear friends and we love the privilege of teaching and working with them.  Saturday we drove to Federal Way for a DI shopping experience for them which took  4 hours and they were blessed to be able to get many needs of theirs.
          We are working with and teaching a new investigator.  Diane is very interested in the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Pray for her and also for us. We are Visiting Teachers to 7 sisters and enjoy the blessings that come with the calling.  What a privilege it is to visit and share our love and the teachings with other sisters.  I really miss Nondi when we go visiting but we press forward.
         Sue, our dear less-active friend continues to grow in the Gospel.  She is a recovering alcoholic. Tracy, her friend, has gone to the mid-west to visit his family for 20 days and she was very anxious at his leaving about being strong when she is alone.  So, she called and asked if she could spend a day with us serving.  This was a remarkable experience for all involved.  In fact, our investigator asked Sue why she joined the church and she bore a beautiful Testimony.  She is daily reading the B of M, watching  Conference talks and reading the Ensigns we gave her and looking up scriptures that are footnotes to the articles.  She is so pleased with the way her 'inner feelings' have been strengthened and yesterday in Fast and Testimony Meeting she bore a beautiful testimony of being strengthened through her invested time in The Lord Jesus Christ.
    Cherly, another investigator who sales 'stuff' on Craig's List was taking her wares to a Weekend Fair and needed help packing.  So yes, you are right, we 'two ole ladies' spend 2 hours packing her truck and rented u-haul trailer.  We hope seeds of love are planted thru service and she will feel her Savior's love. Our RS President asked us to fill a  Bishop's Storehouse order for a couple evicted from their apartment.  Bishop gave them a weeks supply to live in a Motel 6.  They were very pleased with the food and supplies.
We started our ESL class and it was good with 2 students.  We hope it continues to grow and help these dear Burmese parents learn the English language.  Their children of school age speak    English very well so we hope these children, and the English Language Program, will bring success as these refugees learn and grow and adjust in their new country.
      This blog is meant to represent my mission and the wonderful Spirit of the Work and I hope you can feel it through my message to you.  What an incredible calling, though challenging,  President Boyd K Packer taught, "The voice of the Spirit is described in the scriptures as being neither 'loud' nor 'harsh'.  It is not a voice of thunder, neither...voice of a great tumultuous noise.  But rather a still voice of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper and it can pierce even to the very soul and cause the heart to burn. (3 Ne. 11:3)  I hope all of us can be more able to hear this voice and grow in the gospel.  I  know this is the work of The Lord.   I am extremely grateful for the Prophet Joseph Smith and for the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these Latter-days and hope to be a valuable part of the work that is going forth.
      May God be with all of you this week and bless you in your righteous desires.  I love all of you.
Sister Frame
