13 Months Serving in the Lord's Army & Being an Instrument in His Hands!
It's been an awesome week! A lot of our lessons have fallen through but we were able to be instruments in the lords hand so much!
So last Monday was transfer day and I got sister baker and we just relaxed at home for the day. Then went to dinner at the relief society presidents and then FHE with grandma and grandpa. It was a good day.
Tuesday we saw a bunch of people but only had a lesson with a less active. It almost feels like we are white washing. Cause I hardly know the area! The lesson we had was awesome though because sister Baker had a dream about her so we went to find her! It was sweet! That night we helped grandma and grandpa put up christ as decorations.
Wednesday we did service at the food pantry and there is an awesome girl who just started to volunteer and she's golden! She just needs to accept missionary lessons! So almost golden. She's so sweet and very christian! Then we went looking for a member and walked to the back of a complex to see if he lived there knocked one door to ask and turned out to be a spanish sister who is less active and she invited us in and gave us TAMALES! It was such a miracle and I could really feel like we were being tools in the Lords hand! We had dinner at the stake presidents house and that was good! One of the best meals I've had in a while! Almost as good as moms. We went out at night to find less actives and found a sweet older couple who let us in and talk. It was great! She ended up giving us a ride to the church after.
Thursday we had district meeting. We talked about conversion. It was good. Then we went out to try and teach more and one was home or available but we went to a less actives and she is so sweet! She dances and so we were able to connect well! She does ballroom and is taking a burlesque class right now just for fun! Which I thought was fun! I was able to tell her about some of my dances I did and my performances. She invited us back too!
Friday we had weekly planning and then had a lot of lessons set up which all fell though. Dinner was good though. We ate with a new family in the Ward and it was so funny. We talked about our missions and things we enjoyed.
Saturday was good. We tried to see all our investigators but we called most before and they said it wasn't a good day so we went to find people. We ended up getting a few referrals. Sadly none of them were interested. We did have a lesson with a recent convert so that was good. We got to meet his son! Cutest kid ever!
Sunday was good! It was funny though people though I was the new sister...and I spoke last Sunday. Others thought we were both brand new. Made me laugh a bit. Guess my talk wasn't very good cause no one remembered me. But it was good to ask people's names. Classes were good too. We had a guy we met on the street come! He had a good time! Everyone reached out to him too which was perfect! He wants to learn more so that's great! After church we joined the Ward choir cause sister baker is an amazing singer! She might get the solo for the Christmas program! Pretty cool. This Ward is super musical lots of composers and performance people. And lots of people who work with movies. Then we had a good lesson about the atonement with G. It went well. We told about the pushups and donuts story. Then we had a good lesson with Sister M. who is returning to church! G. is her son. Pretty cool. The we had dinner with a really cool family! Their baby was so cute! He is 8 months and already standing and almost walking! So mature and talking! Crazy! Such a temptation to hold him! But I didn't. Then we went out to find more.
Monday we had a member of the first quorum of the 70 come speak to us. It was good. Not what I expected but good. We talked about companionships and how we need to have a divine companionship. Us and the Holy Ghost. Then we tried to teach and find and find and teach and we stopped by an investigator. That was also not a coincidence. She found letters from an old friend who converted and told him he was going to find a 'mormon Angel' to marry because she wouldn't join. And then we dropped by! She's so sweet! Then we had a good dinner with the young women's president and then FHE at grandma and grandpas. Sister Baker gave the lesson, she did awesome!
Well, I love you all and hope you have a good week! I know this gospel is true. I am so thankful for the atonement and for Jesus Christ. I know that without him I wouldn't be able to do half the things I do as a missionary and help so many people. I love this church and the gospel. It is true! This is the restored church!
