Hey Family and Friends,
It has been crazy raining this week almost every day it has rained at some point during the day. But it has been wonderful! We are really loving the rain… and the nice members who drive us around so we don’t get drenched.
This week has been fantastic! Our mission wide goal this week was 100% member Present Lessons. So we have had members with us all day every day! It’s been supr fun and so great to get to know our members better. This week we want to keep that a thing and every week after.
We were able to go to the temple on Saturday!! It was so much fun and was super spiritual. 4 of the ward’s recent converts went to the temple and it was amazing! We were able to talk and laugh and sing hymns up there and on the way back. It was so great! Our recent converts are getting really excited about Family History so it’s been really neat to work on it with them. One brought family names to the temple and I was able to do the Initiatory for her. It was really awesome!
We were on an exchange with our Relief Society president this week and we went and heart attacked a member who has been struggling and she came to church yesterday it was so awesome!! And she’s dating a less active who wants to take the lessons and come back to church so that is super exciting. We are planning on going to heart attack other sisters in the ward with her again! It was super fun and it really made an impact! I love that the simple things we do to show love to people goes such a long way. Truly “by small and simple things are great things brought to pass.”
We went to go see two investigators that we haven’t had contact with in a while and they were actually home and we were able to have awesome lessons with them! They both said they were going to be at church… and they didn’t show up. BUT we will get them next week! We were able to bring another investigator tho. We walked to her house and then walked with her to church. It was super good.
I love it here so much! I’ve already made life long friends here. I don’t know how any missionary can leave this area. I think I may have to just refuse to leave when they want to transfer me. 🙂 I hope that I will be able to stay here for the rest of my mission. Transfer calls is in 2 weeks so we will know then if they can keep us or not.
I love ya’ll!
Hurrah for Israel!
