"When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power.” -Ezra Taft Benson
Wow this is so crazy, time is flying and I can't believe it's march already!
This week was exciting, Sister Tullis and I work hard and we have seen a lot of miracles!
On Wednesday we had a Zone Conference for the Jax West, Jax South, Gainesville and Ocala Zones. I got to see Sister Harris and my granddaughter Sister Winona! They are doing really well and are working hard. I love Sister Harris, it was so good to see her.
I wish Sister Gibb had been there to see it but I know she's proud too :)
After that we went on a tradeoff, and I got to go to St Augustine Shores with Sister Kilpack! We had a good time, I learned how to ask, "What is your favorite animal?" In ASL! And respond! She is a great missionary and we had a great time together.
Then on Friday we went out into a part of our area we don't get to go to often and it was so beautiful right by the river!
It's out kind of in the middle of nowhere. We were able to visit one of our members who is having a hard time and help her a little bit! Then that night, we were visiting some people and we met a man who walked right up to us and we started to teach him right there outside his house! He was awesome and knows some of the members in the ward. He said the closing prayer and thanked Heavenly Father for sending us to him. We have a return appointment!
Then on Saturday we met the cutest old lady in the world! She was 77 years old, and we were able to teach her about the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She was so happy and cried, and told us she had been watching tv and a preacher said that someone would come into her life and bring her closer to Jesus Christ. She said, "And nobody came except you! You must be the ones!" It was such a miracle.
I love being a missionary. It is such a blessing to serve the Lord and work hard every day trying to find the one who needs us.
Pretty blue door :)
Have a great week y'all!
