 Hi Family!!!! How is everyone?! We are just a hot mess over here! haha we have been really sick this week, so it was a little slower! :( but! we still saw a lot of neat miracles! Monday night we met with a couple in the 4th ward and we asked them about their missionary experiences and how sharing the gospel was going for them! IT WAS AMAZING! They were doing an excellent job and made me want to be a better missionary! The husband was passing out copies of the Book of Mormon like crazy and trying to read it with his friends! He also had a really cool idea! He has been playing board games and puzzles and inviting a lot of people over :) anyway, it’s just awesome!!! We finally had a coordination with the Woodlands elders!!!! it's been so long, because our schedule has just been crazy! In this coordination meeting I felt really overwhelmed, like I had so much to do.. and I was sad I couldn't be doing it sooner! BUT! I realized I just need to take it one step at a time and learned a lot of really amazing new things to incorporate... I have learned a lot about how patient God is with us and how we can do SO MUCH when we include him in his work! I really am grateful that we aren't expected to be perfect... but we are expected to strive to be better and stretch ourselves! I love being able to learn and be humbled as a missionary! You realize that there is so much to learn! Life is a journey of becoming.. this is my new moto! :)
The family that emails you is from 4th ward, the M’s… BEST FAMILY EVER!!!! They rock our world!!!! We went to their house for dinner and let me just tell you! they ROCK at sharing the gospel! I want to be like them all the days!!!! This ward is really amazing at being disciples of Christ!!! Sister Alfrey and I were sick for about 2 days.. so we slept a lot and it was so nice!!!! Our Zone Leaders called us on Valentine’s day and sang to us and told us to get better! It was so nice!!! :) made us feel much better! It’s hard to just lay down and do nothing when your used to being up and doing something every moment of everyday!!!! haha :) we had a wayyy fun Chocolate dipping party!!! where I met a family who just bought a house in St. George close to ours!!! The C. family!!! Watch out for them! They will be living in Sage Hallow right off 2450 South, haha :) anyway!!! I also met Krista’s cousin!!!! The L’s!!! The Coolest!!!!! Their family rocks and the view from their house is INCREDIBLE!!!!! As for miracles this week!!!! We had to take a taxi the other day, and as we were riding in the taxi we contacted the driver. He was a Buddhist who had some bad experiences in the past with Christians. After we talked with him and learned more about him we shared the gospel and how it's something we come to invite people to pray to God and find for themselves that it is true. We were able to give him a copy of the Book of Mormon. He told us how we were unlike other American girls that he has met and he was very impressed with how we were living our lives. It was just a really amazing experience!!! This week has been a little difficult.. a lot of cancellations! BUT!!!! we are going to keep working hard, and we have a lot of amazing potential investigators!!! We just have to keep praying and working hard. And of course OWLE!!!! I have really come to realize that as long as you are doing your best and owle, Christ will make up for the rest and you will find the joy that comes from being a missionary!!!!!!!!
I LOVE YOU FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
