|Mighty Missionaries: My companion and I!|
|At the Fort Collins temple lot|
Wednesday: Meeting more members and having great lessons! We teach back to back every night - it's awesome!!! Even though it is mostly member lessons. We had a lesson with Bro. K - a non-member but his family are members! Super cute, and the lesson went better than my companion expected! I love being able to feel the spirit. Oh we used Moroni 10:3! THANK YOU SISTER C!!! It was perfect and we totally needed to use that scripture, and focus on remembering! THANK YOU SO MUCH for pointing that out to me last week :)
Thursday: More lessons, and tearing it up! Miracle happened this week; we just stopped by a less-active and they totally needed us there at that time! Their son needed a blessing, so we were able to call our ward mission leader right then and there, perfect!!!! The Hermanas found us at the trailer park riding our bikes.... (the trailer park is going to become our new best friend)!!!!
Love these Sisters!!! We had a lesson with E to go over the interview questions-- she is so prepared it's crazy! She has only been taught for like the past 4 weeks, maybe only three. So cool!!!
Friday: Service at a rehab place and played Bingo with elderly people, so fun!! Had another lesson with E and she had her baptismal interview! We were thinking about ways to help the ward since we teach members a lot and I wanted to focus more time on finding people. Lessons are great, but you know we also need to find people to teach, but through inspiration I was definitely able to understand that member lessons are great. We just need to adjust what we are teaching... so now we are going from family to family in this neighborhood talking about their 2-4-6 week mission plan! Yup they have 2 weeks to accomplish a goal, then 4 weeks for an even bigger goal, and 6 weeks for EVEN BIGGER!!! I hope that we will see success from doing this!
Dang, I can't believe it's been SO LONG!! Looking back, it's crazy fast! I can't believe everything that I have been through has only been in a year... AAAHHHHH Ok, but Sunday was AWESOME!!!
Shout out to my dad: I LOVE YOU!!! Thank you for being such an amazing example to me in my life! I was reading a letter you sent me over a year ago. Thank you for being a support in my life and for helping me through those rough times! You are an amazing guy and I am glad that I have been sealed to you for ETERNITY!!! Sorry, you are stuck with this crazy hyper daughter. Thank you for teaching me the gospel of Jesus Christ and for raising me in the gospel! For that, I can never repay you :) Thank you for the support and everything you give me! Thank you for being worthy to hold the priesthood. That is an INCREDIBLE blessing! The priesthood is so important and has truly been restored to the earth! I love you more than words can describe!
Well, this week was way better than I expected! Heavenly Father loves me, and even though it is kind of like I am in Utah right now, I love this town, and yup it will be great!
