It was so good to talk yesterday! It sounds like everyone is doing awesome and that makes me really happy!
So this week we had a few cool experiences that I saved to share,
1) We had an appointment on the clear other side of town and we didn't have the car- and it was too far to bike, so we ended up getting a ride out there with a member but our ride back fell through. So we just decided that we would tract all the way back to the area we had planned to go tracting in. Well we never made it to the area we wanted, but we were able to teach a lot of other lessons and get 2 new investigators. One of them is name David- he's really cool. We talked to him about the restoration and about the Book of Mormon and he said he would look into it a little more and ask us questions when we met with him next. So on Saturday we went over to his house and him and his Wife had a billion questions some we could answer and some were to confusing that even they get messed up on their words. But after bearing our testimony of the Book of Mormon he said that he wanted to read it and find out for himself and that we had touched his heart and made their Christmas. It was a really neat and spiritual experience.
2)On Christmas eve we also met a lady named Taura- she's super cool. We were going to see some appointments and they fell through and she was walking out of her house so we decided to talk to her again ( we had met her the same day we met David earlier this week) She ended up asking us to come and teach her and explain why we were so happy. As we bore our testimonies to her tears brimmed her eyes and she said that she knew what we had would be able to help her heal and help her be happy again.
3)Also on Christmas eve we went to see Carlene again - I just love her. She has a memory problem and can't remember very much. But we decided that we wanted to read for Luke 2 with her. As we did that she quoted some of the scriptures and told us about how much she loved these scriptures. When we finished talking about why we all loved those verses- she forgot everything and went to talking about how she didn't like her shoes. It was really amazing to see that for just 3 minutes she was actually there with us. The Gospel is true folks!
Thanks for the presents and taco bell card- Sister G and I had some good tacos Christmas eve and a fun morning on Christmas. I won't lie though, I did not have one complaint about it being 74' on Christmas and It was fun being able to share some of our traditions with each other. I love you all and hope you have a marvelous week!
Remember how blessed y'all! Count your blessings! You probably have more than you think!
