HIIIIII! This week has been fabulous! Sister Adame and I got 23 lessons. So one-upped from last week! We have seen so many miracles. Also this week was the best because literally everyone of my family members wrote me! WOW NOW THAT IS A MIRACLE!!!! So now that I have almost responded to everyone, I shall tell y'all quickly about my week.
First my companion is THE BEST! Shes pretty much perfect, nuf said. We work super well together because we both want so bad to get the work done in the area. One thing I have always said is that I want to go to bed at night exhausted because I knew I worked hard and gave my all. She feels the same! So every day we work our butts off and when we got to bed, let me tell you, we are ready for bed. Wow she is a trooper. Especially because sometimes I can be a bit of an overachiever, but hey its for a good cause!
So this week we had the coolest thing happen. I am sure ever missionary has this but I had it and it was so amazing! So all our appointments were falling through and we were super having a rough day. So then we checked out our backups to see what we could do with our time. I felt this prompting that we should visit one of our former investigators Latanya. We hadn't even written her name down for backups but we felt impressed to go. So my before experience with Latanya-- she never was home and if she ever was home she was too busy to talk. Anyway, we had stopped by plenty before and never had any luck, but this week we were prompted to stop by so we went. She was home for like the first time and all her kids were home too!!!! Literally never happens! I wish i had time to give you more of the details so y'all could understand how huge it was, but I have like 10 more minutes till its time to leave. Anyway, it was a big deal! So then we invited her to take the lessons again and she agreed and knew she needed to! Ahhh so pray that we can actually see her and that we can find times that she is home and available to teach. that will be the difficult part. but still, miracles!
Another miracle... A less active we have stopped by nonstop but they never answer. We knocked at their door and nothing happened so we started to walk away. Ten secs later a car pulls out of the driveway and one of the people in the car is the less active. He was super high but he was really nice. He said he knew he needed to come back to church and stop being dumb. He also gave us his number so hopefully we can help him get back on the path. Sisters who have been in this area said that was the first time in years anyone had got in contact with him so that is way cool!
Another miracle... There is another less active we have been stopping by for what feels like years. Her name has always stuck out to me so I am always praying for her with our companion. Her name is Sarah and she has a down syndrome son who is darling! I guess she stopped coming to church because someone was rude to her son :( But we have been stopping by and she NEVER answers the door. We know she is home because her son would run up to the window and wave to us. Then she would pull him away and just never answer. long story short, she came to church out of the blue yesterday!!! We finally got to meet her so hopefully she will warm up to us soon!
And another miracle.. another less active ( I don't know If I have told y'all about her) Her name is Torri and she is so cute! Her husband isn't a member which is why she is less active. Anyway, we have been seeing her a lot and she will come to sacrament meeting but never all three hours. Well she has been putting forth the effort to come to all three hours and she just really loves coming to church now!!! YAY!!!
Well I am really out of time but I love y'all to pieces! Ahhh the church is so true and Heavenly Father just really cares about each and every soul. No one is forgotten! I am so grateful for our heavenly Fathers mercy. I have seen such a huge change in me. I feel like before I was just such a judgmental person. But now it is just so amazing to go into peoples homes and just automatically love them so much! And to know their Heavenly Father loves them so much too!
The church is true!!! I LOVE Y'ALL SO MUCH!!!
