Happy happy week! We are almost not in a drought anymore! We have had buckets of rain this week. Well buckets for California, imagine like half the intensity of a summer Louisiana storm and you got it! Wow this week has just been absolutely wonderful. Someone must be praying for us because we don’t deserve all the blessings we’ve been given! One of my favorites being about a man named Israel. Sister Webb and I met him maybe a month back on the street. We had an AMAZING conversation with him. He is truly seeking to know God and His plan for him. He just got a new # and couldn’t remember his, so he gave us an iMessage #. Well it wasn’t working and we haven’t been able to get back in contact. It was really sad. I thought I would never see him again. Well not true bc God is good and full of miracles. We get a call from the Elders across the zone and they asked if we knew an Israel. He had shown up to church with his daughter! And now the Elders are teaching him! #Miracle1
Exchanges with Sister Wynn were so much fun! There were some people outside arguing/crying. I was concerned so I asked if there was anything we could do. The man said “you mean with the funeral?” I was like sure with anything. And he was like “can you please take these flowers” sure we can. He gives us this giant pot of funeral flowers. So we took them. And then walked away. That has never happened to me. It was so random. Haha but hey we helped and now have buku flowers!
Squirrels were so friendly to us this week!!
We walk a bunch this week! We are running out of miles. Only a few more days and we will be freee!!! Be so grateful you normal people don’t have a limit on miles you can drive. Had another fun exchange with Sister Clipp who is as green as can be! Peer thing we had to walk a lot I think I wore her out hAhah but we’ve met a lot of really cool people bc of all our walking. I just love my mission. Anyone even thinking about one, it is the BEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!! I just feel so blessed to watch the Lord work through people’s lives in such a life changing way. The Gospel is true. Doesn’t mean it easy. But Christ never said it was easy. So it’s probably not meant to be. Here is your quote of the week.
“To be an example of faith means that we trust in the Lord and in His word. It means that we possess and that we nourish the beliefs that will guide our thoughts and our actions. Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in our Heavenly Father will influence all that we do. Amidst the confusion of our age, the conflicts of conscience, and the turmoil of daily living, an abiding faith becomes an anchor to our lives.”
President Thomas S. Monson, “Be an Example and a Light,” Ensign, Nov. 2015, 87.
LOVE YOU ALL SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!
