The title means that it has been very hot here in Chambery the last couple of days. But, seriously, this week was an amazing week.
Soeur Nuutinen and I have been planning for miracles each day, and we have been having them! It’s amazing! Even the smallest things we have seen as miracles. The Lord has been blessing us so much.
The greatest miracle was last night, actually. We went over to our friend Odile’s friends’ house, and we met her friend, who is visiting her from Florida!! Florida!! (She is French, but she has been living in the US for 20-something years) I get really excited when I can talk to anyone from America. I love the French people a lot, too. But there is something special about people who know your home country and all the little great details of it.
So, her friend has an LDS friend in Florida! And she has visited the newly- constructed temple there in Florida and loves it. She told us that she loves going to her friend’s house there when she has problems because she really feels peace there. I can testify of the peace that is in an LDS family’s home. It’s tangible. Not that other homes are bad. I love everyone’s home. But there is really a difference. That is the Spirit.
But yes, we read in 1 Nephi 8 (Lehi’s dream) with her and Odile, and we explained the symbolism behind everything.
It was such a wonderful night with the two of them. The Spirit was there so strongly.
And, at the end, before leaving, we asked her if she wanted to keep the Book of Mormon, and she accepted it with pleasure. 🙂 So we wrote a little note in the front and gave it to her.
That Book has changed my life. And I know it will change hers.
I love the Christ! 🙂 He’s the best example for us.
