So this week I am a little sad but All will be well. Hermana Haws is leaving! She is such a great missionary! She has taught me alot. Like truly showing the people that you care for them, being honest when you don't understand what they are saying. and work hard. work and love what you are doing! I am also excited for her to go, to go on and finish school and be an amazing member missionary!
We were so excited yesterday! We had 4 less actives that we have been working with come to church! So excited about that! Now we just need to get the investigators to come along as well!
The week has been amazing though. We had our first Zone meeting. It is a new thing that they are doing where after the Zone leaders get back from Zone leader council. they come back and council with the Zone about what they have learned. It was amazing! I loved it! There is so much we can learn from one another that really helps out all of our areas! We have had some cancel on us but most if not all reschedule now. It is great! And we truly have come to understand just how watched we are by the town. They see us walking everywhere and when we knock on their door say "Yeah, I've seen you around town." and they will maybe listen for a few minutes. they may not have any interest but they are talking with us! Also had a guy from one of the local stores give us some stuff for free. Because we are missionaries and he admires that we pay to come out here ourselves. and leave our families. He wanted to give us something to remember the town by! So sweet of him.
The work here is just blooming. we may not have many people to work with but there are more that we just stop by and more and more they start letting us in and talking with real interest. and there are a few that say they want to meet with us but either their spouse is not there or they are putting the kids to sleep. So we are making progress with those who are looking and searching.
We also had interviews this week with President Mullen. He is funny, and truly loves being out here serving with us. During the interviews we were trained on Teaching in Chapels (Church Tours) And what a great tool they really are. and how it not only invites them to feel the spirit but to also learn more of Christ and how they can have that better relationship with him and understand so much better what the promises we make mean to us and to God.
We have an amazing investigator that last week was only a potential. But we went by and we had left with her to read 1 Nephi 1 well she read to chapter 11 and was showing us what she had highlighted and what verses she liked and what it meant to her. It was amazing! To see that progress that she has made in her life in only a few short weeks!
And I know that Tracting does work. You truly find those hidden people who have been searching but have had no Idea of where to look. we tracted on one of the streets here and found so many people. A few were formers, one a less-active. and then the few that had no Idea of where to look for what they were looking for. So we hope to be working with them and getting to know and understand how we may help them along that path to Christ.
So on Sunday my companion leaves me to go to the mission home. And I will be with some of the other sister missionaries in the area until I get my new companion. We shall see how that goes hope that all is well.
By the way i love the signs on Ziggies! I loved the pictures! By the way Eric I don't have a recent one of you! Why not? But I am truly thankful to be out here and serving the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength! Thank you for all of your support! Oh also I give all of you hugs! Love you!
