So there are things called SPIRITUAL HABITS and SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES. SPIRITUAL HABITS are things like daily scripture study, prayers, service, etc. And you already know what SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES are. As we do our SPIRITUAL HABITS we prepare for and are more likely to have those SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES that we so often desire for but don't happen as much as we would like. Then at the same time as we have those amazing SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES because of the SPIRITUAL HABITS we have formed it encourages us and testifies to us that through those little habits great things will come. You can't have one without the other. They are inseparably connected. It is a never ending SPIRITUAL circle that will strengthen our Testimony and Faith. Its so important that no matter how busy we are that we don't forget the little things, sometimes they are the most important.
The work is great and we are having lots of success. Love and miss you guys. Have a great week!! :)
