Much Needed Miracles

Hello lovelies! This week was one of the longest weeks of my life. There was A LOT of scary stuff that happened to us but so many miracles! Heavenly Father knew that we would really need them this week.

Monday night we were leaving our dinner appointment and we just felt like we should go try to contact the referral we had gotten that morning, even though it was the opposite direction of where we had planned to go that night. We went and knocked and this grumpy man answered and basically told us to get lost. Okay. We stood there wondering why we felt like we should scrap all our plans when we realized that one of our potentials lived on that exact street! So, we tried her and she was home and invited us in. Her name is Diana and she rocks! We had the first lesson right there and we are going back tonight. We are super excited!

We had a specialized Zone Training on Tuesday that was way cool! We did a lot of role plays and got to work with the Easter video #hallelujah! The best part was President and Sister Anderson demonstrating one of the role plays for us. They are so fun!

That night we were able to meet with our Bishop! Something we've been trying to do for a while! It was so great. He gave us a long list of names for people we could go visit and helped us know how we can better help the ward. Missionary dream come true!

We went on Exchanges again! Sister Ashcraft came up to North Side with me and wow! We talked to SO MANY people all in a 1 block radius! It was awesome! We talked to a brother and sister from Syria who gave us weird cookies. Then we helped a lady chase down her dog that had gotten off it's leash. That dog was a devil. Sister Ashcraft and I had a blast together.

Wednesday night, Sister Gomm and I went to see a married couple that had been referred to us by one of our members. They weren't home but we stayed in the area and knocked on some doors, even visited a part member family. By the time we were about to leave, we looked over and they were home! They are so solid! Sam and Ahri! They came to church two weeks ago and loved it and they are excited to read the Book of Mormon!

On Saturday we worked on Brother Henderson's family history so that he has names to take to the temple. Family History is so fun! We made so many connections and he now has over 12 names to take just for baptisms! Whoo!

I have really felt angels watching over us this week. The gospel is so true.

I love you all! Have a great week. God bless! :)
