Surprise Trio life is the best. There is always something going on and we probably never will get enough sleep this transfer but that’s okay. Sis Lund is with us MOST of the time but when we have appointments at the same time in both our areas we go on splits with a service missionary in the area. Holla at yo trio’s covering 3 wards.
For zone conference this week everyone went into Tucson for a tour of the temple and then spent the rest of the conference at the mission home. I have decided I do not get to go to the temple enough! I just want to spend every second in a temple! We are so blessed to be able to enter into the house of the Lord and to make the covenants there that will bring us eternal life. How cool would it be to feel the way we do in a temple ALL the time. That is going to be heaven.
Anyway, it was the Passey’s last zone conference. SO SAD! I was asked to give my “dying” testimony since it’s my last zone conference too, but it was okay because they did too! I had such a hard time trying to figure out what to say about the past months of learning and growing. You can’t sum that up into a few minutes so I shared Alma 26:16 and if you wanna know how I feel read that verse.
“Therefore, let us aglory, yea, we will bglory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his cmercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.”
Here are some cool miracles from this week:
– Chuck came to the YSA ward this week and let us know literally 10 minutes before it started he was coming. Due to a fire on Mt Graham the elders were out helping with evacuations so we went to our 3rd round of church meetings for the day with Chuck! Yahooooo 8 hours lesssgooo! Chuck really enjoyed it (especially the fact that the bishop was the guy that sent him to prison, lol, they had a nice chat).
– We finally got back in touch with our investigator Christi Bergan who told us that three weeks ago she and her hubby got married so she could be baptized! She hasn’t set an official date because she wants to make sure all her family can be there and that she doesn’t rush things too much but she is SUPER solid. That was a miracle.
– Before going to Christi’s lesson we ate a quick dinner and afterwards I decided all I needed in life was a nice cookie. I prayed we might get a treat, hahaha. As we were on our way out the door at Christi’s she ran after us saying, wait, wait I made you guys cookies – don’t forget them! HA HEAVENLY FATHER ANSWERS PRAYERS!!!!
Happy Fathers day to my dear father. I love ya and for Fathers Day I’m sending you a gift but you won’t get it until about July 12th… at noon. And Happy Father’s day to our Heavenly Father! He loves us so much and I know he is listening to my prayers (otherwise how in the world would I ever get cookies??) and he answers prayers in his own timing. My cookie experience actually made me pause and reflect back on the prayers I’ve been saying and how they have been answered. I have seen how prayers I said four months ago have been answered, even a year ago! And it is cool to know that if we just hang in there and wait for it, Heavenly Father will bless us with what we need and we will get what we most desire!
Pictures to come soon, I love you – Sister Packer
