Whew, this week was one of the most hard, blessed weeks ever! Yep, those things always seem to go hand in hand. We had a pretty tough week, but we were able to laugh a lot and even though the lessons weren’t high, we were able to have some really good conversations with people that we think helped them a lot.
My favorite day was our Miracle Sunday! We had an awesome dinner with some members who invited their non-member friend. We were able to teach about the Book of Mormon and invited him to read it and he agreed! Seriously, teaching people about the gospel just works SO much better when it’s member inviting their friends.
We then were able to see two less-actives that we’d been wanting to see for a while. We were so happy and compared to the rest of the week, we felt like we’d been able to accomplish a lot. We joked that we could pretty much go home right now cuz we’d had a nice successful day already! WEll, it was still 7:50, so we of course kept going, but figured we’d already seen our ‘allotted blessings’ for the day. WRONG! We went to visit a less-active we still haven’t been able to meet, and as we were walking in we realized we might have had the wrong apartment number this whole time. We decided to try anyway. We ended up finding Samantha who had just found out that day that her mom is probably going to be passing away soon from cancer, so we asked if we could come in and share a message with her. She was super open to everything we said and even mentioned that she just feels kind of lost and isn’t quite sure what her point here on earth is. She welcomed us back anytime, so we’re very excited to continue to help her. It was a GREAT tender mercy and I’m so grateful for it. (: Once again, God is CONSTANTLY pouring out blessings on us. (:
Sorry for the short email, but I’m almost out of time! I love you lots and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I’m so grateful for YOU!
PS On a great side note, the weather’s been in the 20’s or up ALL week, and still no snow. From what I’ve heard, that’s a lot better than the lower 48. Crazy weather!
