The weeks have just flown by! We have already been in Harrison for a month. We are finally getting the hang of things and we’ve met most of the people in the ward. We still meet new people every day though. It’s really exciting when we meet more people. There a lot of people who are prepared to receive the gospel.
We had an awesome lesson the other day at Shelby’s. We never know who will be over at her house when we go over cause her house is where all her friends hang out. But it’s really cool cause we keep meeting new people and they become interested or at least listen to the lessons. It’s been really cool. Anyway. Shelby had to go to work so we taught her friends the cup display that explains the restoration. They were all really interested and said it made sense. It was really cool.
Yesterday after church we went to see Heidi, who had just come back into town and the elders had been teaching the people she’s living with, but we hadn’t been able to meet them yet. But we finally did and they are awesome. They have a super cute baby and they are getting married on Saturday so that’s exciting. They are not going to a church right now, and don’t really have a set church or religion so they are really open.
This has been a really great week. We had our district outing last Monday, We went to Buffalo Wild Wings in Branson and played signs at the church after. It was really fun! We have a pretty awesome district.
We are continuing to teach Heidi (The one who was in a coma) She is super sweet and we are so excited to be teaching her. We are going to invite her to be baptized tomorrow. She’s super prepared it’s awesome!
We had a super great lesson with the Whitneys. (Part member family) We did the restoration cup display. It was super good. I’ll have to take a picture of it and send it so you know what I’m talking about. I’ve used this lesson a lot with people. And they came to church on Sunday! It was awesome. They stayed all three hours too.
I’m not sure if I mentioned Shelby yet but she’s awesome. We tracted into her while we were on exchanges. We heard her singing when we knocked on the door, so when she let us inside we asked her to sing for us. So she did and played her guitar. She’s been in a couple of bands and she’s really good. She’s 23 i think. Anyway she lives in a house with her brother and people are always at her house. She always has friends over. So when we go to teach her we never know who we will actually be teaching. We have three investigators including Shelby who have been at her house. and possibly a fourth. This week we taught the Plan of Salvation and it was a super great lesson!
After church yesterday we went with some members to the Powers family. He’s a single dad and has three kids. They are all super nice and sweet. They joined the church about 3 years ago. Then he got divorced so he stopped coming because he didn’t see a point in going to the temple if they weren’t going to get sealed. It’s really sad. But we are going back soon and going to continue to teach them. They are all super sweet!
Hurrah for Israel!
I started my letter a little late so I don’t have very much time today to write because we are going to Branson soon for a district outing.
I have officially been out for a YEAR!! It’s crazy!
We are still meeting a lot of people and it’s been really good. We are getting the hang of the area and all the members.
Funny story of the week. We walked into a part members house who we’ve met with before and we were just standing there talking and I was about to sit down. Then Sister Goyette (the member) clears her throat and points to my feet. I looked down and saw that my skirt was on the GROUND!!! Good thing I had a slip on that day and leggings!! It was so funny! I hurried and pulled up my skirt and started laughing!! It was so funny! That skirt is super huge on me and I have safety pins on it to make it smaller but they came undone so my skirt fell down!! Haha
They cancelled church because of the weather yesterday but 3 non members said they were coming to church which was sad. but they will be coming next week!! 🙂
This is a super great area and I’m so excited to be here!!! The members are awesome and there’s tons to do here. The only down side is that there are a lot of potentials who live super far away but that’s never stopped me before!! 🙂 It’s been really great so far and I’m excited for what’s ahead. The last 6 months are going to be the BEST and I’m super excited! 🙂
We started teaching this lady who had been in a coma for 3 months and had been “alive” for about 17 days! She’s a super funny vibrant lady. She may be a little crazy but we love her a lot! She’s super awesome!
That’s about it for this week! I love you and miss ya’ll!
Hurrah for Israel!
I will send pictures next week!
