September 23, 2014

Well, this week on Tuesday we were able to have interviews with President Culter and we went on exchanges with the Sister Training leaders.  It was awesome!  We always see so many miracles on exchanges.  We went to go to a lesson with an investigator named Pricilla and when we went at first she wasn't home so instead of just leaving we decided to walk down the street to stop by a former investigators house.  As soon as we got to the door, the phone rang.  Pricilla saw our car out front and said she was just getting back from taking her little boy on a walk.  So we went back and taught her a lesson on prayer and talked about the Book of Mormon.  She was a referral from the elders here and we are excited to work with her. 

After Pricilla's lesson we helped a lady who will be moving soon, pack some boxes.  She was very grateful for the help.  Her name is Sister Hiley and she has been coming to back to church!  It is so good to have her there.  Well, after that we decided to do some tracting.  At the first door that we knocked on, a girl peeked through the blinds on the door and then opened it and said, "hi!"  We introduced ourselves and she told us that she had met us about a month ago while we were doing service at loaves and fishes.  We had this loaves and fishes night where instead of getting members to help serve we invited all of the investigators and less actives we were working with to come help.  A girl named Joana, who works for one of the members in the branch, came and brought her friend.  This was the friend that she had brought!  I didn't recognize her so I'm really glad that she recognized us!  We started talking to her about the Book of Mormon and we were able to get a return appointment.  Her name is Danisha.  So that was super exciting and we will hopefully be seeing her again this week! 

Other than that we worked a lot with the recent converts this week on doing new member lessons.  We had a pleasant surprise on Saturday when the members we had dinner with invited one of the recent converts and her family.  That was awesome!  Yesterday was good too.  We had some sad news this week though.  One of the members of the branch passed away.  The funeral was yesterday.  It makes me so grateful for the eternal plan that Heavenly Father has for us.  Death is not the end because of Jesus Christ and His great sacrifice. 
 Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week!  Keep being the awesome missionaries that you are! :)  Love ya! The church is eternally true!
