Hello! This week was a week full of service and miracles!
On Tuesday we went to help Sister Harrison garden! It was a blast! We found a nest of baby bunnies under a hay bale, we raked leaves, we got her garden weeded, and transplanted all of her vegetables! It was super rewarding work! To top it off, Sister Harrison gave me a mint plant when we were done and we named it Mahonri Moriancumer! :)
We have been praying for new investigators his week and not long after, the city elders sent us a referral of a woman named Christina and her daughter. They had been teaching her but we're having a hard time finding members to come with them, so now we get to teach her! We have a lesson with her today and we are super excited! Miracles!
In other news, Bishop Ard is awesome! We got to meet with him this week AND he came to a lesson with us for the Farole's! We were running super late and when we got there we found out that instead of waiting for us, he had just gone in and started teaching them about the priesthood. We were so thankful! Best member present ever! But, with the Farole's, Anthony is praying about baptism and we are so excited for them! We got to testify of eternal families and we could tell that they were excited! :)
Thursday was lame because I got the stomach flu. I was incapacitated most of the day. It didn't help that the next evening the two of us had a whole large pizza and a box of hot wings at a meal appointment, We had to walk down to Sister Cullen's for some Tums afterward. Thank heaven for those Tums.
But Friday we got to see Sister Burnet! She's the sister who was hit by a car. She is in rehab already and doing incredible. The Lord is seriously watching over her!
We had a lesson with Steven on Saturday about the Plan of Salvation. It was so cool! The spirit is so strong in our lessons with him and he is preparing to be baptized on June 5th! He said on Saturday that everything we have taught him has made a lot of sense. Yeah! That's because it's true! :D
We also got the opportunity this week to help Sister Bustard with her college class's science project. Sister Abbott and I had to work to dig through our missionary brains in order to help her out. Hopefully it won't be so hard when we go home and back to school. It took us a few good hours but we got it all finished and in on time.
The highlight of my week was definitely getting to see my incredible family on Mothers Day! I loved seeing how much they've grown and progressed. It brings joy to my little missionary heart to see people progress. :) I love my little family so much and I am so thankful to know that they will be my family forever. (Big shout out to Sister Cullen for letting us skype at her house and then feeding us afterward! Mission Mommy for the win!)
Well, that about sums up this week in Philly! Thank you all for your love and support! It means the world to me. God bless! :)
