Kindness Kard Experience

Here is a really cool experience from the Sister missionaries here in Manhattan with the Kindness Kards we made a little while back!
Our train story:
"You are here, You are still alive, The sun shines when we don't. Keep hope alive." On the train ride home from one of our lessons, we found ourselves next to a very sad young woman. I heard her sniffing, and when I looked up she had tears streaming down her face. I instantly thought of the kindness cards and we both dove through our bags looking for one to give her. We found a particularly good one and handed it to her. She looked down for a second, looked up, smiled and then said thank you. It wasn't much at all. We didn't even write the card. But we helped a stranger in the park brighten a stranger on the train's day. And that was definitely a cool experience. Helping strangers help strangers. It's what we do. haha NYC is so full of sad and lonely people and what an incredible opportunity it is to have something even slightly more than just a sympathetic glance to give.
Mosiah 18:9 (Book of Mormon) "Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection that ye may have eternal life" 
To learn more about what we believe (as im sure you are) about service, the Book or Mormon, or anything else we teach as missionaries check out the "Meet Missionaries" or "". Have a beautiful day!
