Reunion time and we had fun talking about Longmont and memories, miracles we saw there!!! LONGMONT PEEPS we miss you!!!!!!!!
Monday: Seeing C& C was AWESOME!! I just love them so much!! I am excited for their future and the blessings that are in store :) Lesson with R went really well :) We read 1 Nephi 5 with her and talked about chapter 4. We just read where she was and answered questions. She is so solid--I love her! She is gone and won't be back till next week though, so that's a bummer we can't meet with her for awhile!
Wednesday: Exchanged back and had zone meeting. We had a lesson with Sister O. I love her! We watched Good Things to Come by Elder Holland (the Mormon message). She cried. 2 Nephi 4, read it! I love being able to recognize that we need to do that right thing no matter what. Sometimes we won't always see the blessings immediately, but they do come, maybe in the eternities, but they do come! We are asked to do our part now, and that's all we can do!
We went to do some planning/inputting phone numbers into our phone by this stream... well it was infested with mosquitoes, so we left pretty quick!!! But it was GORGEOUS and I LOVED IT!!!
Everyone needs a fellowshipper and friend! We had a lesson with B that night... well we show up at the member’s home, they weren't home but their daughter who served a mission in Las Vegas was there. We were like “it's fine, he might not even show up.” Well he did, so we had an impromtu lesson with her, and it was INCREDIBLE!!! We talked about baptism and read 2 Nephi 31. He totally felt the Spirit and we were able to help him recognize it!!! Then the members came home and also our ward mission leader showed up to meet B so that was crazy!
Friday: 7/11 So we got free slurpees with the YSA sisters! I don't have pics because I left my camera at home! And dinner with N's mom, and found out that he listened to her read the Book of Mormon!! Sweetness!!! Slow progress, and I'll take it!!! She thinks that it would be worth billions of dollars for her kids to accept the gospel!!! The ward had dessert night, so we got to go to 3 different homes and see people there! It was great! The best was where the kids could go (two were for adults only). We played a game with some people and briefly met two promising potential investigators.
Saturday: Well we went out and did service and it POURED!! Sometimes it is super sunny then all of a sudden decides to rain, so we got soaked!! It's like the movies. So we got pretty soaked multiple times this weekend, but that's just a day in the life of this Sister Missionary!! I wouldn't trade it for anything! We didn't have any lessons scheduled for after dinner... wow, that was a MIRACLE!! Dinner had dairy in it... and I didn't know! So I came home feeling pretty sick, and then the member called feeling horrible that there was dairy in the cake, that's ok! I am relieved to know that that's what the problem was!! So my companion foot zoned me (it's what Grandma L did up in Laramie) it helped a little, but such a great service for me! My comp is pretty awesome!!
|It rained really hard and flooded this street, then right after, the sun came out!!!|
Have a fabulous week! Love you all!
Sister Kelly Smith
