So Monday night we got hit by a drunk driver, but before you get worried we weren't in the car and it was a very very minor scrape. We had just come out of a lesson and we going back to our parked car when we saw another car pulled in behind ours. He just waited there for a little while but then wanted to go back out into traffic and he had no room so he skimmed our car. Anyways we got it all figured out with the police but as we were waiting for the police a guy pulled up to see if we needed any help and we said we were good but he still came out and talked to us. And we ended up almost teaching him the first lesson and getting his number to set up a return appointment! So I think that was a tender mercy from the Lord to help us meet this guy but he hasn't texted us back since... We will just keep trying though!!!
Then we had a little bit of a rough Wednesday because we struggle with figuring out things to do in the middle of the day when no one is home. I might of got a little frustrated and took out my anger on Sister McDonald which was not necessary but we overcame that and just decided to go home and call people to try and set up appointments in the future. Anyways we ended up calling a ton of people and literally like one person answered the phone so we got one appointment but we still were not feeling very successful... We were truly trying to do all we could to find things to do though and so after dinner we went back out to contact some people we had been needing to see. We stopped by a less active I had never met and low and behold she had two non-member friends over for a game night and we ended up talking all about the importance of the Book of Mormon and giving them both a copy!! I don't think they live in our area but again it was a tender mercy of the Lord that we needed that day!
Then we went and saw Nancy Wilkie again, the potential we have been working with for a while now and finally set up another time to teach her!!! We are really hoping it doesn't fall through!
And the last miracle was a referral from the Spanish Elders. The Spanish don't have a lot of work because there aren't a ton of Spanish people who are interested (which is really hard for them) so they usually just go tracting and they just happened to be tracting in our area the other day and found this awesome family! So we went back to give them a Book of Mormon in their language because they are from Ethiopia and they were SO interested!!! Especially the oldest girl!! Every time we would explain something like about the Book of Mormon or whatever she would say that is so cool! And that she just wants to learn more!! So we are going to see her again this week! I am just loving the missionary life!!! The Lord is just blessing us tremendously!!!
And General Conference was AMAZING!!! The mission president and his wife also invited our whole Zone over for lunch on Sunday so I finally got to go to the mission home!!! President and Sister Miles are truly the sweetest!!! I just love them SO much!!! You can truly fell that they care about us and will do anything for us! I told Sister Miles about how I need to skype my doctor and she said I could even come to the mission home and use her laptop!! I love her to death!
The church is so dang true and I love everything about it!!! There has been no time where I have ever felt I have been doing wrong when I have followed the guidance of the prophets! The Lord loves us and will bless us if we are trying our hardest! I love you guys!!! Have a great Fall Break!!!!! Oh and it snowed on Saturday:) It was only slush but it is getting cold!!! I am pulling out the tights already!! :)
