A neighbor brought over food storage cans with a bag of ground beef, another family called for us to come get some beans from their garden. Few weeks later the same family with the garden gave us corn, eggs from their hens, cucumbers and summer squash. Yesterday we got food from the Relief Society and just today a lady brought us a grocery bag of venison. My parents also came to visit this weekend and brought a cooler of yummy beef with food given to us by my sister, Ann. It is so humbling to know that the Lord sends people to do His work. He can't give us what we need without others doing service. I hope to give back one day what I have received. Oh another day a family brought my little family lunch for the day. AMAZING!! We have also been blessed by family members giving us money to buy school clothes for my two girls. JUST OVER FLOWING WITH BLESSINGS!! So happy the Lord is on my side.
I wanted to post some pictures of the church history sites I went to see in Missouri. I just wanted them on here since this is like my scrapbook in a way.
This is the Liberty Jail...what an amazing place. The floor of the jail is the original from back in I believe 1838 (don't quote me on that one). The jail is inside a visitor's center. We sat in a room to listen to a narration and then brought into the room where the jail was placed. The minute those doors open I felt the spirit so strong. I knew right then that Joseph Smith was real and he really suffered here. By the end of the presentation I knew that just as Joseph Smith received peace, revelation and inspiration through his long trial, I can too. I felt a great love inside my heart. I knew that I can survive and also feel the Savior's love for me.
These two pictures are of Far West. I was amazed by this place. I guess I didn't know my history very well. But Far West was a big city back in the pionner days. There were 5000 people living there with markets, 2 hotels and homes. The saints were also commanded to build a temple there. I believe they were only able to get the corner stones built before they were forced from their homes by the angry mobs. The four corner stones are still there. I felt a lot of love for the pioneers at this spot.
Haun's Mill had a interesting feeling there. It is hard to explain. Those of you who know what happened here might would be able to understand. I was glad I went to see this spot where many pioneer lives were taken from this earth because of angry mobs.
I loved Adam-Ondi-Ahman, this is a huge area of beautiful land. Right in this grove of trees is where I pick to live when the Savior comes again. An amazing feeling here. BEAUTIFUL!! I loved my experiences looking at the church history sites.
Verily I say unto you all: Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations; And that the gathering together upon the land of Zion, and upon her stakes may be for a defense, and for a refuge from the storm, and from wrath when it shall be poured out without mixture upon the whole earth. D&C 115:5-6
