Monday-- We went on an 18 mile bike ride with Sister Himle, Sister Christensen and the Brimhall sisters! :) It was super fun! We also got to take the new sisters coming into the mission tracting for their first time ever! My first time, I went out with Sister Hirschi and her companion Sister Lords, so it was a sentimental moment haha. We had an awesome day and taught the Restoration to a guy going to get his mail! Not sure if he wanted to stop and talk that long, but he listened! :)
Tuesday-- I sang with Sister Dodson, Sister Barney, Sister Hansen, Elder Marrott and Elder E. ( I can't remember his name..) at transfer meeting! We sang "For the Beauty of the Earth" and it was so much fun! It turned out so good and it was just a blast! :)
We visited Leann Wohl, someone who the Elder's before would visit and teach and we had the best talk with her! She is awesome!! Love that woman so much. We talked about some mormon messages and the Gospel Library app and I think she really liked it! :) We are going back to her house for dinner this week. She is the best.
We picked up Hermana Usher from the mission home and she spent the night and all day on Wednesday with us! Her flight home was a day later than everyone else's so we took her under our wing. :)
Wednesday-- Was such a good day! We talked to Kelsey a couple of weeks ago and just checked back and we were able to teach her the Plan of Salvation and she said if she knew it was all true she would be baptized! She doesn't really have a religious background, but she was totally willing to learn! Woohoo! :)
That night we had the best lesson with the Todd's! We taught the Ten Commandments and it was such a good and spiritual lesson! They are doing so great and are willing to keep all the commandments, especially the Sabbath Day!
Thursday-- We ate lunch at Soleil and Travis'! (the family we met at the BBQ a week back) It was great! They have a lot of mormon friends, so we are hoping their family will want to come to church and stuff soon!
We decided to go visit Sister Noall, since we didn't get to it the day before and it was definitely the Lord's timing when we stopped by! We showed up and she was telling us how her washer just had a leak and there was SO much water in the laundry room. ALSO this woman is super pregnant!!! Like super prego! She is due in a couple of weeks! So she was so grateful we followed the spirit and showed up when we did. We helped her clean up and then made a quick dinner for her kids. It was so fun serving her in that way!
That night we had dinner at Bonita Nelson's with her neighbors and the Reeber's! It was awesome. We shared a message afterwards and are hoping to contact her neighbors again soon. Such good people!:)
Friday we brushed wigs at the American Cancer Society for service, so that was interesting. Haha :) Then we had an awesome lesson with Brenden! We taught him like my first week in this area. He's sixteen and he just GETS IT! We taught the Plan of Salvation and he totally understood it! He is super busy with work and it's summer so we struggle getting a hold of him. Miracle we were able to have a lesson with him! Andrew White from the ward came with us, he is also 16 and it was just perfect! We stood outside for 45 minutes.. dripping sweat because it was so bloody hot outside! But it was so worth it and I loved every second of it!
Sunday-- We met Erica and Brooklyn (a family the sisters taught before) and it was such a good visit! We shared a message and said a prayer and the spirit was definitely there. They felt it! They are such a great family and said we could come back, so I will keep you posted on their progress!
Well, that wasn't even everything that happened this week! But I'm out of time.
I think I'm starting to get a hang of this STL business... still always a struggle. But if it wasn't a struggle, I wouldn't be learning or growing. So definitely a learning experience. I'm trying my best and trusting that the Lord will do the rest.
Love you all so much!
Thanks for all the love and support!
