Editor’s note: Many are familiar with my daughter, Sara Arkell, also known as The Piano Gal. Sara has been called to serve in the New York Syracuse Mission. This is a series on her weekly letters that we will be posting on the site for those who wish to follow along with her mission. You can read her previous emails here.
Guess what?! I had the chance to do a music video out here and it’s out now!!! You HAVE to watch it! It’s been such a cool project to work on. And lots of miracles that made it all come together! I was put in charge of it and I had no idea what song to do.
I had never heard “Light Of The World” by Lauren Daigle before but I somehow ended up hearing it recently and knew that was the song we needed to do. I didn’t know who should be in the video but I felt guidance on that, too, and it all came together so beautifully!
Here’s the link! Watch it and then please share it with one person before Christmas!! Let’s spread some hope and light!
This week felt the longest week ever but it was good! We have 2 friends to teach. Finally!! It was so cool because on Fast Sunday, I fasted and prayed that we would specifically find TWO new friends this week. And guess what? We have TWO new friends. God answers prayers!! It takes effort on our part and our trust in Him but prayers are always answered. It’s a guarantee!
We went to the Syracuse Zoo for District P-day on Monday. I love our district with my whole entire heart wow. We’re all besties and it’s so much fun to be with them! The zoo was kind of a let down because there were only like 3 animals and it was raining but we made it a good time!
We had Stake Conference yesterday. It was so cool!! Definitely different than a Utah Stake Conference because we didn’t even fill half of the overflow with members. But after the main session, we had a special session with new members and visiting friends. The Spirit was so strong as people shared cool experiences they’ve had that led them to join the church! God is really in the details and He cares deeply for each one of His children.
I KNOW that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ’s church on the earth today. You will never find as much pure happiness as you find here! SO many blessings are just waiting for people when they make special promises with God and strive to follow Him and Jesus Christ!! It’s AMAZING! There is room for everyone in Christ’s church!
