find their address. So we see this woman in her garage (Sherrill) and
we stop and ask for directions. And she was no help in finding the
address, but of course we try to share the gospel and she doesn’t seem
interested at all. But Sister Carter felt prompted to go back so I
think we went back 2-3 times. This whole time I’m thinking there is no
way this woman will progress. She would just talk to us a little bit
on the door step. I then got transfered and heard from the
missionaries Sherrill is reading the Book of Mormon….Sherrill let us
in her house….we had an amazing lesson with Sherrill…Sherrill came
to church….Sherrill finished the Book of Mormon….Sherrill is
getting baptized!!!! and now she is as happy as can be! Seriously just
has a solid testimony! You never know what the Lord can do!!! He has a
hand in literally everything!!! It was so good to be back in the
hills! I’ve missed that ward so much it just made me so happy to see
many wonderful people again! I feel so blessed to have watched the Lord work mighty miracles in Sherrill’s life!!!
This week was interesting! Lots going on! We have a lesson tonight
with a friend we made at 7-11 . We have a lot of lessons set up for
next week that I’m really excited for. We helped the STLs clean out
their new apartment, the Elders who lived there before didn’t do a
great job of cleaning the place up haha. Oh and today we helped the
Tornow’s move some dry wall, which is incredibly heavy. I helped carry
4 pieces 💁🏼💪🏼y’all they were really heavy. Oh we had a surprise
visit this week! That was exciting to see the Nelson’s. Brother Nelson
left a very special prayer/ blessing with us. THEY ARE SO AWESOME!!
Sorry this email is super short, but we have so much going on today!!!
I love you all! Stay Strong!!
My new favorite quote: “President George Q. Cannon once taught: “No
matter how serious the trial, how deep the distress, how great the
affliction, [God] will never desert us. He never has, and He never
will. He cannot do it. It is not His character [to do so]. … He will
[always] stand by us. We may pass through the fiery furnace; we may
pass through deep waters; but we shall not be consumed nor
overwhelmed. We shall emerge from all these trials and difficulties
the better and purer for them.”
Attached is a picture of the the Nelsons, my best frand, and the
biggest spider!!! 🙀
Missionary work is hard, but sooo awesome! We saw many tender mercies
this week and hopefully many people with potential! There was a family
history Family Home Evening some of the members invited us to and
brought along Sam. It was so exciting to see him get started! He got
his limited use recommend this week and will be going to the temple
soon! We are meeting with him and the most awesome member this week to
help him find some names to take before he goes. Last minute like
literally a minute before the embers hosting it asked me to give a
spiritual thought. I prayed for inspiration and the Spirit brought to
remembrance a scripture I just read a few days ago! Did you know in 3
Nephi family history is brought up! I had read the verse before I just
never realized Christ had also said it. It must be super important!
The chapters were talking about how Christ fulfilled the law and the
covenant will be fulfilled later on! And hey we have it today! I love
learning about covenants I’m the scriptures it is fascinating to me.
Justen will not be getting baptized. He feels we really helped him get
back on track with God, which is good enough for now😊 we literally
did everything we could.
The little less active family we’ve been working with has been doing
so well! They aren’t less active anymore that’s for sure! She hasn’t
been to church in 3 years and all we had to do was knock on her door
and invite her! She and her daughter bore testimony yesterday and it
was the best thing😊 seeing the mom and the daughter. Saturday we
actually went to the sharing closet and to a baptism with them. It was
a fun day. Also sister Carter And Paulson came over for cleaning
checks and surprised me with a birthday party. Lol a little late but
was so sweet and we made shrimp and mom I used that shrimp boil we
usually use and all the sudden we all could not stop coughing. Like
some power of something came into the air and it would just kill you.
It was really funny we were all just coughing and laughing haha.
We started our Book of Mormon study class this week! It went really
well and people showed up! Lots of missionaries in our area are
leaving! I will miss them all so much! And one of my favorite people
is leaving her mission today! She is all done! I cannot believe it! I
haven’t really had anyone super close to leave yet, it’s rough saying
goodbye. I just absolutely love my mission. I know Christ is the wAy,
the only way.
Look for the Lord’s hand in your week. If you can’t see it, your eyes
are closed 😉
