84 Miracles

This week, our zone set a really daunting goal of getting 65 new investigators in a week. And that is not a small number, especially for our mission & especially for our zone. And we worked SO hard. And we fasted. And we prayed. And we truly saw miracles. 84 of them in fact! Our zone with the help & guidance of the Lord were able to find 84 people who were prepared enough to listen to & invite us back to teach more about the Restoration of Christ's church. It was truly amazing. 

ANYWAYS Other than that, I would say the highlight of the week was last night we got to teach Andriy's wife for the first time! We taught her the plan of salvation & she loved it! It has been so amazing to see the changes in Andriy soften her heart, and see how the ward reaching out to them has really changed her perspective on the church. 

We got to go to the temple again this week! It was so amazing. A convert of just over a year was able to go for the first time! It was way cool to have us & all the elders who had taught him come back for his special day. Him & his wife are getting sealed in March! It's amazing how happiness is truly found in the temple & by keeping the commandments God has given us!!

Oh & sorry I didn't write last week, we were hiking in the snow & I did not have the drive to type a whole email! But wahoo for this week! & I will send more pictures soon! (:

Love you all!

Reese's Puff

The title of my email is as such because as we speak, I am eating Reese's Puffs. 

This week was pretty good, but I mainly want to talk about two things that we did that were absolute miracles. 

1. We taught seminary AND EVERYONE STAYED AWAKE AND PAYED ATTENTION!!! I LOVED IT. I love all the youth that we get to work with & I love these wards that we get to serve in, It's the best. 

2. The second miracle is one that we have been waiting and praying for Since Andriy got Baptized in August. On Sunday we were talking to Andriy and we asked him if he was coming to Gospel Principles with us & he said that he was not going to be able to because he was meeting with our ward mission leader. So I go to our ward mission leader and I asled if we were having class and he said "No, I'm going to be teaching them how to do family history work" And I said "them?" AND I LOOK OVER AND ALMOST HAD A HEART ATTACK BECAUSE ANDRIY'S WIFE IS THERE WITH HIS DAUGHTER AND SHE WAS AT CHURCH AND YES SHE STAYED THE WHOLE 3 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And she has been and was fellowshipped SO much and she told a member that she just decided that what Andriy believes is true and she want's to learn more SO WE ARE PROBABLY GOING TO START TEACHING HER VERY SOON AND I AM SO EXCITED THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE BEST FAMILY EVER!

So yeah, 2 great miracles.

again with the snow

Seriously though, there's a lot of snow out there. 

Anyways, we had a pretty good week this week! We picked up 3 NEW INVESTIGATORS! SO good. Okay so here's the problem, every week I get on here with the intent to write in detail everything that happened this week, and then I get on and my mind is like "nah". So I will write a few things. 

We picked up an investigator named James this week. He's a referral from the temple that we FINALLY got in contact with. He's awesome. He was in the military and he KNOWS there is a God and he has seen His hand in his life so many times! 

Okay I don't know what to say, I promise this was a great week. If you need a good talk to listen to, listen to Safety for the Soul by Jeffery R Holland.

New Year, Same Area

YEAH you guessed it, T-texts came in and I'm STAYING for another 6 weeks!!! That will be a total of 7.5 months in this area, which is AWESOME because this is the best area EVER. I'm so excited, and also that means I will be able to finish training! Last P-day we had a second Christmas with a white elephant gift exchange (I got popcorn. Nice.) and a "snowball" fight (I'll send pictures probably in like an hour) But it was SO fun. This week we got to teach Kathy! She is a former that we picked up a few weeks ago, and we've just been able to start meeting with her. She is WAY more prepared than the last time she was taught in 2008. Hopefully she will be getting baptized very soon! 

ALSO I cannot believe that is is 2017, that is so weird. I feel like we just celebrated 2016 & now here we are. 

Over Christmas skype my mom told me to write longer e-mails, & today I'm going to fail her because this is pretty much the end of my email...

I'll send pictures eventually!
