This is our friend F on his birthday! Feliz Cumpleanos

This is our friend F on his birthday! Feliz Cumpleanos

Familia! I took up a lot of time putting those photos on. But I really want to tell you about F. He was the young man in the photo who had his birthday. So one evening we were on the bus traveling and we saw him. I love to practice speaking Spanish with those that know it. So we went up to him and asked him if he spoke spanish (haha I’m working on orginiality). We didn’t have very long but found out that he was from Colombia. We didn’t have time to give him anything. But then later that night we were on our way home and guess who we saw on the bus?! Our friend F. We talked to him again and got his number so we could get ahold of him again. We ended up meeting with him a couple days later. He is so nice. Kinda shy (but every time he just gets more comfortable and opens up more. It’s really neat!) He turned 17 and his family is in Colombia right now. Yesterday he came to church with us and when we met with him after and asked him how he felt during church he said, “that is felt good. It felt familiar, like he had been there before.” It was really cool. It really is a witness to me. Heavenly Father confirmed part of my setting apart blessing that says, “God has prepared individuals for your testimony.” It’s amazing to see and know that the little things we do to reach out to people matter. Heavenly Father loves us. He really does put people in each of our paths so that we may be able to help lift them up and help them feel and recognize who they are. Sometimes that is done in small ways, sometimes in bigger ways. But there are always people we can lift around us. How glorious this plan that Heavenly Father has for us. I love you all. I hope you have a great week. Be safe. Remember who you are and go shine your light!

Love,
Hermana Godfrey
