Oh, What Songs of the Heart

Sis. Tyler and Monjar spent the morning
on their preparation day at the beach
down the street from her apartment.
This week we had the opportunity to use a lot of music in our day to day lives. We sang more songs to people during lessons than I have in a while. And we even sang, "I Need Thee Every Hour" in Sacrament meeting for the ward on Sunday. Everyone said we sounded like angels, but I think it was probably the angels standing behind Sister Monjar and I at the podium that sounded like angels haha.

She's so blessed to live only
3 miles from the Maine Coast!
We also had a really fun Zone Conference centered on the Book of Mormon and how we can use it in our lives and teaching. It was so great to learn about ways we can use the most correct book on earth to further the work. To help us bring the Book of Mormon to life, we even got to put together short Book of Mormon skits by districts. We decided to use Elder Luu as our Lamanite and he can rap so we had him rap as if he were performing his sermon for the Nephites (you could say its a modernized version).

Then, later in the week, we met with a less active member we haven't met with in a really long time, but the last time she met with missionaries she requested a hymn book. So we took one over and got to know her better, to which we found she loves hearing hymns so we sang for her. The Spirit was so strong as we sang and testified that families can be forever, and now she has a strong desire to go to the temple. We are working with her to come to church and meet the bishop so that we can get that process started!

It has been a good week. Even with tiredness, the work will not cease and I know that our Savior is there to guide this wonderful work.

Sincerely, Sister Tyler
