Hey family! If I remember correctly, the house is busy with lots of family right now! What an exciting week! congratulations Trasieturkeybaby! don't forget to send some pictures next week. Carolyn said that the lemonade is almost ready to go for Tuesday evening. I hope it's an enjoyable evening:)
We had another last minute miracle last night. We were about to head in for the night when we saw a guy walking his bike and we knew we needed to talk to him. We talked to him and turns out he had met with missionaries before and he had been out of the country and lost contact. The Lord has a way of keeping track of those who are prepared!
We have been trying to work with a certain less active lady in our ward and before this week have only been able to contact her once. She was never home when we stopped by and never answered the phone. Well this week she was home when we stopped by so we decided right there to make sure we had the right phone number. We called and her phone didn't ring (land line) so we checked the number and while she was repeating the number to my companion I started seeing if there was something wrong with the phone connection...you might have problems making phone connection if the phone isn't plugged into the wall... ha I'm not sure when the last time was that she used her phone! we dusted it off and tried again and it worked quite nicely! ha we have been able to be in good contact since :)
It's been a good week. We had a great fast and testimony meeting and a former member we have been working with came to church and was all dressed up and looked very nice. it was wonderful to hear him say how nice it was to be in church. There is no substitute for the spirit that is felt in the chapel.
The gospel is a wonderful blessing! I love it! I have been reading "Our Heritage" and the sacrifices our forefathers have made. it's humbling to hear their experiences and the degree of gratitude kept in their hearts even during the deepest of their trials.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
I love you all!
