Hello Wonderful People!
Have I mentioned how much I love my mission? BECAUSE I DO! Even tough we lost some of our investigators this week, I still love it. We were teaching Sherri, right? And a few days ago we get a text saying, "Hey girls, thank you for teaching me but I have decided to become a Jehovah Witness. Bye." Oh well . . . I am glad she feels happy and still has faith in God.
This week was so COOL (as in the weather) and we got to see a lot of amazing people who are less active. I am so grateful that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is very missionary minded. You can be a missionary anywhere you go! And I have realized its not always about the baptism. Of course that is such an important necessary step. But it is first about bring people to Christ, and helping them know that they are loved. Watching someone come to church who hasn't come in years is amazing.
A GREAT STORY for this week: A wonderful woman in our ward got to go to the temple again. She had not been in over 26 years. And we have been meeting with her and helping her find her way back. We taught her about tithing and promised her that is she paid her tithing she would be blessed. AND THAT HAPPENED! She is very poor and had to rely on her faith in Christ. She did it and was able to pay for all of her debt. She paid her tithing and GOT TO GO TO THE TEMPLE. Not only that, but she got to seal her mom and dad together and be sealed to them. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR TEMPLES!!! I know that we can be together forever as families as we enter the temple together. I lvoe and can't wait to hear more about this sister's experiences.
Well I have a ton to do today on preparation day. So I have to go. But I love you all very much and hope you all have a wonderful week. I pray for you always!
