This week has been...

Thank you for the bday packages! I highly enjoyed them :)

It was really hard to open...
This week has been... I've had better. Sister Orr... She isn't getting better. We went to the doctor on Tuesday. He told Sister Orr he thinks she might have a bulging disc. So, he gave her a steroid (prednisone) and said if that doesn't work he will do an MRI. Welp, it hasn't worked. If anything it made it worse. We will be getting an MRI done today or tomorrow. Depending on what that says she could go home later this week or early next week. I'm not sure what is going to happen. I just know it's been a really, really hard week.

Haha! Well Missy got her
Birthday Package!
Complete with Buzz Lightyear
blanket and binocs!

We stayed home pretty much all week. We visited our ward mission leader and his wife a couple times. It was good to have some social interaction! We got permission to watch a movie with them, so we did. That was fun! I didn't really feel like a missionary though...

This is one of the birthday cakes
people made me. It was super good.
I have been reading in Mosiah- the part about Abinadi. There is a verse that has stood out to me more than it had before. It is when King Noah and his priests are questioning Abinadi, and they just don't understand. In chapter 12 verse 27 Abinadi says, "Ye have not applied your hearts to understanding; Therefore ye have not been wise." We can know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true in our heads, but until it doesn't really mean anything until we know it in our heart. It's easy to know it in your head. The hard part is knowing it in your heart. That's the part that takes work. A great way we can know and feel the truth in our hearts is by doing the things we are taught to do. Like going to church, daily scripture study, and prayer. And do them because we want to- not because we feel we have to. I have found that more often than not it takes time to get it fully into our heart. So, when it doesn't happen as quickly as we think it should, we don't need to get frustrated. Just keep trying. It will happen eventually. When it does we can feel a greater desire to follow and strictly keep all of God's commandments. It's something to always work on, since we continually make mistakes. But that is why we have the opportunity to repent, and try again. 

Have a great week y'all! 
I love ya :)
Peace and blessings.
Love, Sister Broadbent
