"Time is one of the blessings we are given." -Neal A Maxwell
Oh my goodness, the days keep flying by don't they? It seems like it was just yesterday I got to Gainesville and now it's the end of the transfer. And today, I have exactly 3 months left on my mission. Isn't that crazy? I fly home August 8th. 2 transfers left. I am going to make the most of them!!!
This week was a great week. We had so many miracles!
This week when we were knocking we met these 2 guys from China and they were really interested since neither of them had been raised religious and they wanted to know more about God. We taught them that God was their Heavenly Father who loved them and they had so many amazing questions! We invited them to pray and one of them said his first prayer! Then we got to go back and see them again and they were so excited to see us! We taught them the Plan of Salvation and they loved it and had more amazing questions. Then the other one said his first prayer ever! They were simple and beautiful prayers. It is such a miraculous experience to teach people who have never learned anything about God before. They are such great people and we can't wait to see where they go!
Also this week, we got back into contact with one of our favorite investigators. He is having a hard time but we finally met with him and he came to the YSA devotional last night! He is a great guy with lots of questions. We hope he gets baptized. He took a pic with us!
Also this week, our recent convert had a medical emergency and he's okay now but couldn't come to church and it was scary since he's so solid and amazing. Please keep him in your prayers! He needs all the help he can get with that.
We had a tradeoff this week also with the Sister Training Leaders. It was so weird since this was my first tradeoff since being an STL and I felt like I should be conducting it haha but it was a nice experience. We found 3 new amazing people to teach that day!
We also got to have interviews with the mission President this week and it was so wonderful. I love our mission President. He is such a great man and he helps us all so much!
Something funny that happened this week was that we got a phone call and it was one of our old investigators who had run into the Elders and so decided to call us, with the Elders on speakerphone! Haha we were so confused and they were all 3 talking and we could not figure out for the life of us who had called (since she told us she wasn't interested) but it was hilarious! We laughed about that one for a while.
Well I hope y'all have a great week! Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in my life!
