This week started out perfect!
We had a great lesson with one of our investigators! She is so close to coming to church and being baptized! We are very excited for her! 🙂 We were able to bring a member (Sister Donahoe) with us and I think she really encouraged her to come to church! Later that week we were able to have breakfast with Sister Donahoe! She is an amazing person and I am so glad that I am able to get to know her!
We had a relief society activity and we made scarfs and fabric pumpkins! It was so fun and they are very cute 🙂 It was also fun to get to know that relief society member of the ward a little better! 🙂
Was the day our week went down hill. But I’ll laugh about it later!
After lunch on Wednesday
We went to go get our oil changed in the car. They told us it would be about an hour. So for that hour we went out to find people! As we walked we saw a woman who was smoking. It seemed a little bit awkward but we went for it anyway! Well it ended up being awkward. We just want to talk with everyone! We were also able to talk with a few other people as well! An hour later we were back at the car place. They told us that they were also fixing our breaks but that they would be done soon. A half hour went by… then an hour… then two hours. By the time it was done we rescheduled one appointment, we were late another, and the other canceled on us! I am grateful that we have a safe car to drive in, however it was a stressful day! By the time we got home, it was 8:30 and we realized that we didn’t even have dinner… what a day that was! 🙂
We had lunch at Little Venice, with Sister McDaniel, her daughter, and Danielle. It was really good! However, getting to the restaurant was an adventure in and of itself! We thought that Sister McDaniel was going to pick us up, while she thought that we were meeting her there…it was a complete misunderstanding 🙂 It’s just funny how everything just added to the week we were having! 🙂 Later we helped a member clean her house! And we also listened to the Priesthood session of conference since we hadn’t been able to listen to it yet!
Friday was the day that brightened our week!
We were able to have a lesson with a less active and her boyfriend! They were very welcoming and they want to have us back! That’s always a good sign! It made us so happy! They have so much potential! We are excited to go back!
One of our recent converts almost dropped us… She was just having a hard time. Another thing to add to our week! We love her so much and just want to help her!
The cherry on top
Was the fact that is snowed on Sunday! It was very pretty however, it’s too early for it to be snowing!!!
This week was a little hard…
However we would not have been able to get through it without the help of Heavenly Father. I think I learned that we need to do what Heavenly Father wants us to do rather than what we want to do! We may have made these great plans for the week, however God had a better plan for us. Not only did it help us learn and grow as missionaries, it also helped those that we saw! I feel like I can love the people here more because I am striving to do what is right and what is best for them! I love this area and the people in it!
Sunday was a pretty good day!
The theme of church seemed to be about missionary work! All the lessons/talks were very powerful and you could feel the spirit so strong! Something big is going to happen soon I just know it! 😉
We had dinner with the Lewis family on Sunday night! They are a very cute young family and we seemed to get along with them very well! That night we tried finding people in the dark! We have some pretty great adventures and I am grateful for every single one of them!
Have a wonderful week!
