That is an awesome story Mom! keep up the good work! it is so cool to hear that you guys are serving the Lord in member missionary work! i don't have a ton of time because we are about to go ball it up. But I love hearing the bronson family is doing member missionary work! it takes faith doesn't it?! it's a little scary! But when we let our faith overcome our doubt, and simply "be not afraid, only believe" the lord will bless us with miracles! tender mercies (oh by the way. you can delete the following sentences, but you said "through me a bone!" that's not the momma bronson i know! i guess it was when you wrote this, so i'll let it slide...). keep sharing stories like this with me! I love to hear about them! there is power in the book of mormon! the book of mormon and the spirit are our two greatest resources in this work! and what's one without the other?! so keep inviting them. and update me on their progress! but especially on the family's progress as far as member missionary work goes. i know i've emailed the following promise to you before, but will you incorpororate it in the family's prayers? i promise it works!
elder Neil L anderson (from the april 2013 general conference, in the talk, "it's a miracle") said:
i promise you that if you pray to know with whom to speak:
1. names and faces will come to your mind
2. words to speak will be given you in the moment you need them
3. opportunities will arise
4. faith will overcome doubt
5. The Lord will bless you with your very own miracles
from your story with the clarke father, it sounds like a few of these promises were fulfilled, but keep praying specifically to allow The Lord to bless with you with these blessings and miracles!
and watch the following video with the family today for FHE.
Love you mom and family!
oh yeah quick updates. The Slaughter family is doing great. we took them to the visitor's center on friday. the spirit was very strong. we taught about temples and being sealed as a family and invited them to prepare to be sealed as a family, and they all accepted. They are on date to be baptized on .
Alle Welker, the one married two weeks ago, was baptized on saturday. It was awesome. the spirit was way strong and there were many tears, including many from her nonmember parents. The slaughters were there too. the confirmation was quite a spiritual experience as well. That whole sacrament meeting was great. oh a brother in the ward named Rob Gardner sung a musical number. he is famous. look him up! he composed the "savior, redeemer of my soul" song. which i love. one of my favorites. ummm what else happened.... martin (recent convert) is doing awesome. he and brent (recent convert) are going to do baptisms for the dead with the eq on saturday. They are way excited. Anyway... love you much!!
Love, Elder Bronson
