February 10, 2014 FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 How are you all?? Well! A LOT happened this week! It was way crazy! I can't believe it's already Monday!! We have had a very busy week! Started off with P-day! We walked around raffles place, which was fun. I’ll send you a ton of pictures!!!! We went with the 4th ward and Bedok Elders so it was a blast! Then we went to our Bishop in 4th wards home for dinner the Q's and guess what?! Teisha and Tianna Thompson are Sister Q's nieces!!!!!!!!!!!!!! APA HAL!!!!! That’s soooo crazy!!!! It’s really weird how many connections I make even here in Singapore! The world is very small!!!! It was really great! We talked with their family a lot about God being mindful of them and them keeping a gratitude journal to always remember what Heavenly Father blesses them with!! :) HIGLIGHT OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had a lesson with A. (the investigator from Mongolia, super adorable doesn’t speak a lot of English) and we were teaching her the Plan of Salvation. It started off a little rocky and we weren't really sure why... but! We started talking about the atonement and read Alma chapter 7 vs. 11 - 12 with her... after reading it in Mongolian... Tears poured down her face... and she asked "he did that for everyone?? I can't believe he had to do that for everyone..." and she continued on really trying to understand and she felt the spirit so strongly! It was being testified to her that she had a Savior, Jesus Christ who died for her so she could come back to her Father in Heaven if she accepts Christ. Needless to say it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The spirit hit each of us like a round house kick to the face and it ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love being a missionary, the end!!!! Anyway!!! We have had a rockin lesson with our less active AT... we just really let the spirit guide and we can see how he is once again letting this gospel change his life :) Sadly we had SEVERAL cancelled lessons with former investigators, potential investigators, and current investigators... BUT!!! It’s okay, we are going to keep pushing and working!!!! Work like a john the Baptist "WILD WOMAN" (thanks pops) haha anyway!!! We also had a ROCKIN lesson with a less active from the 4th ward! Y! SHE IS AMAZING!!! She has really let the gospel change her! Truly she has taken Christ’s atonement and become a new person. She is so much happier and just ready to take on whatever comes her way!!!! IT’S SO COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we visited this rockin family!!! The smith family!!! And they made us do a talent show!!! haha I didn't know what to do!!! So we sang a song there is sunshine in my soul today (Sis. Proffit played guitar and we all sang :) anyway!!! (quick story about there is sunshine in my soul today... it all started when Elder Black told us that his comp was sick so we should call and sing to him... so we did and now we have called prob. every missionary, because everyone is sick, and sang to them! it's really ridiculous and quite fun!!!!) …back to the story! I also taught them how to waltz!!! It was so weird to try to dance without dancing hahaha, it was awkward... but it was a BLAST!!!! And they loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Church on Sunday was INSANE!!!! We were at a chapel on the other side of the island, then had to go to the other chapel and back again to the first chapel!!!! haha it was crazy! BUT! It was amazing and we saw a lot of miracles!!! :) A. came to church and she is doing great!!! We want her to be baptized here, but she might have to be in Mongolia! She sent us a sms saying how amazing the BOM is!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we also went to a baptism for two little girls in the 4th ward J. and N. :) Anyway!!!!!!! I bore my testimony in fast and testimony meeting on Sunday in the Woodlands Ward (it was this Sunday because last Sunday was short due to the Chinese New Year). Anyway!!! I BAWLED like a baby and was explaining how I may be transferred in 2 weeks... so I wanted to leave a last testimony and told them how much I loved them... testified of my savior and Joseph Smith and I absolutely am going to miss Woodlands!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway!!! Life has been great! We are really focusing on finding new investigators!!! SO! We are praying a lot, a lot!! Life is amazing!!!! I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE Eternally Sister Waldvogel O.W.L.E <3
