|Ward Harvest party Hayride|
Wow! I have no words for this week.. I will attempt to find some and do this week justice.
We had such an amazing week and we are finding so much success in our small part of the vineyard.
Monday: we had an awesome P-day we went and played sand volleyball and ultimate Frisbee with our zone. Later that night we had dinner with Kay and Leslie. Kay is our investigator and Leslie is a Less active member who lives with her. We went over with Sister Albrecht in the ward who they love and we had lasagna. We were able to invite them to church and to the wards harvest party that weekend. Kay then took us over to her sisters house and we got to see this famous doll house that she made. It was neat though because we were able to talk to both of them about there families and about what are beliefs in families are.
Tuesday:We had district meeting which was amazing . everyone was able to get up and talk about the Holy Ghost and the role that it plays in our missionary work individually. I was great because I was able to reflect on how the Spirit has guided me in my life and how it has help me to change, to help others, and to testify during my mission. It made me so much more grateful for the increase in the spirit that missionaries receive while they are serving . After lunch we went to physical Therapy for sister Bly. Her tech that was working with her though isn't a member of the church and She asked us a lot of questions about our missions and what we do. It turned into a great chance to plant a seed and she was to nice it was great just being able to talk about our missions. It makes me really thankful that I am serving and have a purpose when people ask. After we went over to the Billings and help her out with some signs for there party this coming week. We had a lesson with Kamryn who is 8 years old but her family just moved into the ward and they are Less active. We went over to meet them a few weeks ago and they asked if we could teach there daughter the lessons before she got baptized. (Which is this coming Saturday Nov. 1) obviously we said yes and we have been teaching her for a while now. She is amazing and we just love going over there she makes us feel like rock stars. The other day we came in and were talking to her mom and she came up to us and just " OH MY GOODNESS.. you are beautiful!" haha we laughed but it was the sweetest thing! After that we went back over to the Billings for dinner and we had lemon poppy seed pancakes. DELICIOUS!
Wednesday: We had exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders. I left our area and went with Sister Wright to hers. Spent the whole day in the college ward. It was good though and we had fun... always ready to go back to our area though.
Thursday: That Morning we went over to Judy Taylor's house in our ward to drop off somethings to her. We ended up staying for a while and talking to her about her mission. She is putting in her papers right now to serve a single sisters mission so she was asking us about something and we had lunch with her. We had a lesson later that day with Natasha. She is doing so amazing and she is trying her hardest. I love that girl so much and she is am amazing young women! We had another lesson with Kamryn after that and we had dinner with the Robinson, They made us homemade Thai (thigh?) food. SO SO SO GOOD!! and no they are not oriental just really good cooks!
Friday: We went over to the barn and Helped the Billing for a few hours. It looking so good and I cant wait to send pictures next week of the party!! Had dinner with the Tolleys.... brace yourself for soup season!
Saturday: Crazy busy day! We went to the other sisters baptism that morning. David our investigator was supposed to come but he had gotten really sick. I think I forgot to mention that David has a baptismal date... for THIS WEEKEND!!!AHAHA so excited for him! We had lunch and then we had to go practice our song for Sunday... yuppppp sang in church! That night though our ward had there harvest party. Which was so much fun Im talking Hayrides, chili cook-off, pumpkin carving, and geocaching! It was a blast and we had a lot of non-members show up! Miracles!
Sunday: Best day ever! We had 3 non-members show up and 1 recent convert and 1 less active! I sang in church and it was actually pretty good. The lessons were all amazing too! David came to church and so did KAY!!! And leslie. We also got a new investigator Alvin He is a foreign exchange student from mainland China. It was so cool teaching him though!
This week was amazing lot of hard things happened but it really never outweighs the good! LOve you all and hope you have a good week!
