Örebro Week 12

No funny quote this week :( They happened, I just forgot to write them down...

BUT! It was a good week. 
-Helped the family from our ward with the roof again (we will be there one more time and hopefully take pictures)
-Taught the Restoration to one of our investigators. She teared up a bit and could really feel the Spirit. She was in Church AGAIN this Sunday! It was a perfect Sacrament Meeting for her because the speakers talked about the Book of Mormon and bore very powerful testimonies of it. Perfect!
-Had delicous Hungarian soup TWICE this week made by the Hungarian Family in the ward. SO GOOD!

I love this talk by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland called "How Do I Love Thee?" The video (at the bottom) is just a short clip from it, but I think that the whole thing is on Youtube. It talks a lot about Charity (the pure love of Christ) and how we can attain unto it in all of our relationships. I love what the Prophet Mormon said about Charity in Moroni 7:45-47

45 And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not ininiquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
46 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity,ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail—
47 But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day,it shall be well with him.

Pray for Charity. Work for Charity. Let it become a part of who you are. Let it change you. It is changing me every day :) Spread the Pure Love of Christ like candy at a parade. The world needs moreof that! Just forget yourself, serve others, and help lighten the loads of those around you. I love this quote by President Thomas S. Monson on Charity:
"In a hundred small ways, all of you wear the mantle of charity. Life is perfect for none of us. Rather than being judgmental and critical of each other, may we have the pure love of Christ for our fellow travelers in this journey through life. May we recognize that each one is doing her best to deal with the challenges which come her way, and may we strive to do our best to help out."

Love you lots and praying for you. Thanks for all that you do and all that you are.
