Our Heavenly Father is quick to bless, no matter how slow we are to be obedient. As it says in the Book of Mormon, before we even finish an act of obedience He is blessing us. In fact, even while we are in the act of obedience we are being blessed with the ability to act. Oh, how great is the plan of our Father in Heaven to make us eternally happy. All that is required of us is to follow Him and keep His commandments.

We visited with Lil and John, and Dave and Nat this week and spent a great day chatting, eating, and enjoying their company. We always try to share a gospel message with them, and let them know how happy we are to be serving a mission for Him. The family seems to be in good health and spirits are very supportive of our missionary service.
While in the South Shore area, we visited Bridgewater and some of the people we love so dearly. We had an opportunity to visit Laurie and Althea Wentzell in their new home. They have moved in from the country to a nice apartment in Bridgewater town. They have always been stalwarts in the area, but because of ill health and other complications, they haven't been able to get to church, so this will be good for them to be nearer to the chapel.
The Bridgewater institute class is in good hands. We attended the class on Wednesday evening and were well fed spiritually. Bro. Mackenzie is doing a very fine job sharing the gospel with the YSA. The class is now confined to just YSA, so they are responding to questions and teachings much more readily than when their parents and other older adults were there.

That evening we had the opportunity to be at the temple and work with the youth and YSA who came to the baptistry. It's always good to be there with them. They always have such a willing attitude to do whatever they can to be of service. We were at the temple again on Friday evening to work with another group of YSA at the baptistry. We love to see so many of them worthy and willing to be in the temple doing things that will bring families together in the eternities.
Sunday evening we had the Sister missionaries over for dinner. They're both Americans, Sis. Rust from Vernal, Utah, and Sis. Hart from Idaho Falls, Idaho. They are such great ladies and we love working with them. Sis. T took some time to be a mother for Sis. Rust by sewing a button on her coat. Just like home!
