Elder Bailey and I got a ton done this week. Probably the coolest thing is the amazing little Indian family we met yesterday, though! They remind me so much of Mani and Dhan, and it's even crazier because as they read, and pray, they could super easily be ready for baptism in July. Which will be a year after Mani and Dhan's family! Kinda crazy how my first year and second year are so similar in a lot of ways. Hahaha anyway! We met them after a long time knocking to no avail. Fourth floor last door anyone?;) it was pretty dang cool.
Something I've been thinking about, in our mission, we have started this awesome thing called "Faith Meets Families" which is basically a giant initiative to get all of the recent converts to the temple within a month of their own baptism with their own family name. A scripture I found in 2 Nephi 14:6 gives us a promise to all those who make attending the temple a priority. It describes the tabernacle, which was the Moses version of the temple, being a place of refuge and protection.
This initiative has been a HUGE testament to this scripture! All of the Converts I've had that have gone to the temple are able to withstand all that comes. There is no coincidence that as the world is getting more universally miserable, God has inspired our prophet's to make Temples more universally accessible. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and the spirit and promises of the temple are Gods ace in the hole to combat all the craziness and lack of integrity found in the world.
