I absolutely love emailing and hate it at the same time. I love reading all of your emails and hate replying haha.
We were at a members house last
night for dinner--one of my absolute favorite families, but I do have a lot
of favorite families ha. Anyways, they asked for a cool story of something
that's happened so far on my mission...and I drew a blank. I couldn't think
of any stories to share with them. There are a lot of little things,
and there are miracles that we see every day, but they don't make for
good stories. Most of the time they are small and simple things. Maybe
I just need to be more aware. Oops. Anyways, it was really bad because
I just sat there and took forever trying to think of a good story. I ended
up sharing one of the daily miracles we had that was a witness to me that
Heavenly Father truly loves each one of us and is aware of our
We were doing finding--my favorite thing ha. But the night before
we were looking through the list of less active members and decided on
a few to go meet and visit. We got to this one apartment and knocked
on the door and it was this brother in our ward who bore his
testimony like the week before. I don't know why we didn't connect the
names, because as we were driving to this apt I was telling sister G "We should have this one member who was interested in
missionary work come with us to a lesson sometime. I think his name is [so AND so], but I'm probably just mixing it up, because
that's this less active guy's name we're headed to see". So we walk up to the door and he
answers and we were just really surprised for a second, we just said "oh.
Hi! We've met you before." Super awkward I know. But we shared
a message with him in the doorway and the whole thing was awkward but
he told us afterwards that he had finalized his divorce that same
day. Gets even better, because our ward mission leader called us and
said that this guy was coming with us to a lesson the next day. And
he didn't mention it to us at all. And yeah, I don't know if I
explained any if that well, and in hindsight and probably reading it, it's
like duh, obviously they are the same person but at the time it was
really confusing, take my word for it.
After reading rachs emails and
how we basically said all of the same stuff, I thought well sis g has
been sick a lot but at least we haven't had to go to the hospital. Guess
where we were 2 days later? Yeah...don't worry, she's fine. She was just in
pain but she's all good now. We just spent the day at the hospital.
know our investigator who's been learning about the church for years and
years? Well we had a lesson with her this last week, and we also had dinner
with her 2 times and almost 3 ha. 3 different members invited her over for
dinner when we were there. And she's feeding us next week before I leave and
we are having another lesson next week. Haha it was just really funny. She
told us last night that she was like a bad penny that we can't get rid of.
Other way around really. She's really the main reason I want more time
here--she is soo wonderful! But I know HF has a plan for her and for me and I
have to trust in it.
I LOVE the sisters we live with. Sis J makes
smoothies for me every single night haha. And one night when we were all
really stressed we made smoothies and popcorn and watched the short version
of Johnny lingo on gospel library and slept in the living room. That's why I
suck at writing letters. There's no time.
Oh so this area had a crazy
storm that flooded everything. Someone told us it was the most rainfall since
the early 1800s. Dad you're probably going to look into that right? Want to
let me know if it's
true? Everything was flooded, it was crazy. So we
had to email from our iPads and it is actually really difficult.
Just so you
Sorry I didn't respond to individual emails, I'm really slow on
the iPad. But I will soon, I love you all!!! Have a wonderful week!! Good
luck with school and life and everything!
