Most of the time when I sit down to email, I don’t remember a single thing that happened that week! Another good reason why us missionaries have planners…I don’t know how I’m going to live without them!
I’ve been a missionary for a whole year now! I think I had a pretty good day to celebrate! We met with a potential investigator at a little cafe, he bought us Hot Chocolate of course, and we had a pretty good lesson with him, we plan to meet with him and teach him about the gospel.
later that day we met with a less active. she gave me a little pin that she had crocheted, she makes little things for all the Sister Missionaries even before she meets them! I thinks it’s very sweet!
We helped another investigator feed her sheep again. It was a gorgeous day! There was a little bit of snow on the ground and the sun glistened on the creek behind the sheep barn. It was kind of fun to feed the sheep, I don’t really know why! I guess when you are serving other, you feel good. And it always reminds me of the scriptures and how Christ asked his disciples to “Feed my sheep” and I was, in fact, literally feeding sheep! Not only that, but I was also helping our investigator come closer to Christ. In turn our investigators smile helped me to feel the spirit also.
That night, we were able to see an investigator that I have never met before (you know the holiday season is crazy! people were with family etc. etc.) The spirit was very strong and I knew that God loved her and her family! She has totally fallen in love with the gospel! She loves that families can be together forever! I am excited to see her again.
Nothing to exciting happened the rest of the week, it’s was pretty much the same old same old, helped a member make goodies, got the oil changed in the car, fed sheep again, went to church. It was a great meeting today! The lesson in Relief Society was great! We listened to “His Hands” I love that song! After church we had a Branch Lunch, there was a lot of good food!
We had dinner at a member’s house on Tuesday night, for dessert we had Panetone (I don’t know how to spell it) I was quite surprised because I haven’t met a lot of people who have heard of it before! It turns out that the husband went to Italy on his mission! Which explains why he was very confused about my name…
We had a crazy snow storm yesterday! The wind was blowing and there was a lot of snow! It’s a dream come true! I have been waiting for lots of snow for the past few weeks!
Did I mention there’s a Stewart’s here? Well I guess that doesn’t mean much to you guys. But they have the best Ice Cream in NY! I haven’t been near one since I was in Lake Placid! I pretty happy about that!
Well, That’s about it this week!
I hope you all have an amazing week!
