week 54

February 13, 2017

"In a world and society where Satan is launching his most vicious attacks ever on the children of men, we have no greater weapon than pure, unselfish, Christlike love." - H. Burke Peterson

This week was really good y'all!
Sadly, Sister Tullis and I both got sick this week. But we are on the tail end of it all now and things are feeling better. Just had a cold like everyone in the mission haha

But we went on a great tradeoff this week with Sister Kirkham and Sister Gilbert from Palatka!
I was with Sister Kirkham in our area, and we had some huge miracles!

We had set an appointment with this man who was a referral from the St Augustine Elders and he was so awesome, he told us that he has basically just been searching for the truth his whole life. He is also willing to keep commitments and he has a sincere desire to know. It was a wonderful lesson. He told us he believes that to really repent, we need to work at it and prove to God that we love him and that we want to change. Hey, that's what we believe too! It was great.

Sister Kirkham is so awesome and I love her. Such a sweetheart!

I love being companions with Sister Tullis. She is so much fun and we are so weird. When Sister Tullis went on a tradeoff, the sister she was with said, "I love my companion, she makes me feel like a little kid again, we have so much fun!" And Sister Tullis said, "Sister Caton just makes me weirder." Hahahaha true. We have fun together.

This week we worked hard and met a lot of people and set lots of appointments. I love this area! The ward is so great and everyone wants to help us do the work. We are lucky missionaries!

This week we find out what happens with transfers. I can't believe it's gone by so quickly! I can't wait for this next one, we are going to have so much fun.
I am so grateful to be a missionary. Also, it's been 70+ degrees all week. February? Not in Florida!

Love y'all! Have a good week! Happy Valentine's Day!

Week 54

February 6, 2017

"When we have a vision of what we can become, our desire and our power to act increase enormously." -Dallin H Oaks

Hey y'all!
This week was pretty crazy, we had some interesting stuff go on.

I went on a tradeoff this week with Sister Kilpack! She is awesome. We had a really good time but we were both pretty scared when it came to nighttime, the house we live in just felt really disturbed and dark. It freaked us out so we prayed and sang some hymns until we fell asleep. The next morning the Elders came and blessed our house and the difference is incredible. The priesthood is so real!

Me and Sis Kilpack

Then we went to kind of a really far out area in our boundaries, and the people were really nice and told us they see Gators out there all the time!
We were right by the river, we got a lot of nice pics.

The St Johns River is so pretty.

We have been teaching this great investigator who has a lot of potential, she is awesome and loves to ask questions. Her house is so pretty!

There is a lot of aftermath from Hurricane Matthew that we see, and we saw this super cool tree so I took a picture

Also all of you know how I am afraid of cats, and this week we were parked by a member's house for a few minutes to talk on the phone with the mission office. Suddenly, A CAT LEAPS ONTO THE CAR AND STARES INTO MY SOUL
it was so so scary. I even screamed

Cats are gross.

I love y'all! Have a great week!
