Words from Sister Brittany Platt in Colorado

Olo Everyone!

This e-mail is going to be pretty short, sorry. Time flies when I e-mail!
So, this last week was awesome! The LA lady from Round Valley, Krystal, asked us to teach her 11-year old daughter who isn't baptized so she can get baptized!! So awesome! And we got permission from the mission president to go to two performances of the Strasburg Elementary School's Peter Pan play. Several of the kids in our ward, Krystal's daughter, and another daughter of a LA family who we're teaching the lessons to were in it. It was amazing!!!! The lady who runs the show is a member of our ward and she did a fabulous job! The kids were so talented and so cute and the auditorium was packed! Reminds me of home. And it was great being out in public and having people see us. Also, Jeff and Sarah are doing SO good! They've read the entire quad!!! Everything! And they took notes and wrote down questions about what they read so we could discuss. And they've watched like every Mormon movie out there! So so awesome. And Jeff is receiving the Aaronc priesthood soon and they both want to go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. Truly, the Lord has prepared them so much! We're meeting with them about twice a week and we just love them. I feel like they're family and hopefully they can come visit St. Johns so I can introduce you all to them! Such wonderful people!
Also, we had a family call us that just moved into our ward and asked us to come over to their home with the elders to bless their house. They just moved here from Venezuela (the wife is from there, the husband is American). He's been less-active for years because after he got baptized, he went and contracted with the military over in the middle-east for five years and kinda lost contact with the church. But, they finally moved over here and are the coolest family! They came to church yesterday, and one of the members of the bishopric bore his testimony about missionary work and talked about his mission to Venezuela! They were so excited and went and talked to him in Spanish immediately afterwards. They asked us to teach them the lessons again and the husband wants to receive the priesthood so he can baptize his son. Miracles miracles!

Well, I'd better go. I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week! Here's my new favorite scripture for you all: James 5:16 "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth him much." Keep praying to the Lord fervently and it will do you so much good!

God bless you!

Love, Sister Platt
