We picked up three new investigators!! Three!!!! Miracles happen guys!! And these investigators are solid investigators!! So interested and ready to follow God!
So the first investigator was who I told you about last week, Sarah, who grew up in a cult. We taught her tithing and fasting and invited her to fast for a Sunday she could come to church because she works on Sunday and she had already come up with a day!!! Her boss had told her that she had a few vacation days that she needed to take off and so she was going to take it off for church!! And now she just had an interview for a job that doesn't work weekends and so we are just praying she will get the job!! She is so awesome!!!
Second investigator came from one of the members we tracted into that wasn't in our records. His girlfriend is super interested!! They have been reading church books together and so we also gave the a Book of Mormon that they can read together as well:) She doesn't exactly live in our area which is a bummer so we don't know how long we will be able to teach her but she really wants to learn!!!
And the last investigator was a lady that we had met on the street this week. She had just fallen down so her knee was all bloody so we stopped and asked if she needed any help or even a ride anywhere but ended up talking about Jesus Christ and her belief in Him. She then said she has met with Sisters before and that she was supposed to go to church with them but no one ever picked her up to go... So we go home and looked in our area book for former investigators and low and behold there she was!! But there was no address with her teaching record so there would have been no way we could have found her! Coincidence?? I think not! There was really no reason that she was dropped before and she already wants to come to church and she prays everyday and she has already started reading the Book of Mormon!! I mean how much more golden can you get?? God is so real!!! And I am so excited for this next transfer!!! We are going to get baptisms baby!!!
But this week is transfer week so Sister Anthian is leaving... But the new sister will be happy to come into our awesome area!!! I am so excited!! I love change! But I will miss Sister Anthian.
Our ward is also starting a mission month where everyone in the ward is supposed to pick a person they can focus on to work with and pretty much every activity will be focused on missionary work. Then at the end of the month the ward will have a fast all together and apparently they've had success with this in the past. It should be good!
We also had exchanges again this week!!! The Sister Training Leaders are so amazing!! I love them!! We did a service as a zone for the stake Food drive and got 93,000 pounds of food!!! It was pretty awesome but exhausting!! I was sore from lifting bags of food for three hours straight but it was worth it!! And we had this crazy lesson with these people from Romania and they pretty much were trying to convert us to Orthodoxy but now I know everything there is to know about the Orthodox religion:)
We are going to the temple on Saturday as well because some of our members are going through for the first time and they are getting sealed!!!! It will be my first sealing!! I am so excited!!!
Anyway, I love you guys so much!! This week has been so amazing!!! God is so amazing!!! And this gospel is so true!!! Oh and I found a store here that is like Downeast Basics so even if you just want to send money for my birthday and Christmas instead of sending things that would be cool as well:) And yeah you should probably send medicine soon:) Thank you so much!!!!
