hey every one!!
holy cow this was one of the best weeks i have had in a very long time. it was one of those weeks that makes the hard times worth it! we saw sooo many miracles and we had a blast!
for starters... we went on exchanges with the harpers ferry sisters! i went up to harpers ferry west Virginia. it was a blast! i love sister ekins the sister i went on exchanges with! we laughed the entire 48 hours of the exchange! i also had one of the coolest miracles of my whole mission! so we got out of an appointment with a less active member which was also a miracle because she said she would be coming to church! so we were all pumped when we got out of that appt. then randomly we decided to go try by a name of a less active family who we had never met before. so we pull up to this house that is kind of in the middle of no where. we knock on the door and bam! i recognized the family! it was a family that i used to teach in martinsburg! i was like what are you guys doing here?? they said they had just moved to the area from martinsburg. They said the family that we were looking for hadn't lived there for years. Then they invited the sisters back to have them start teaching them again. seriously what are the chances that i was on exchanges in the area and we decided to try by this random house and it was some family i used to teach in martinsburg!!! Heavenly Father definitely has plan for that family!! holy cow i still get the chills when i think about it!
then after exchanges we got the opportunity to hear Elder M. Russell Ballard speak to our mission along with the dc north and south missions. there was 760 missionaries all in one room! it was like being back at the mtc! it was an absolutely amazing conference and Elder Ballard made us all pumped and ready to conquer the world! the work is hastening!
then we had an amazing day at church yesterday. our investigator who is getting baptized is having issues with her arm. she was in a lot of pain before church. but she still came. she told me that satan was trying to keep her away from church really hard but she told him to get the heck outta the way because she was going to church! it was awesome! and she stayed for a baptism afterwards with us while still being in pain. after seeing the man get baptized she said she could hardly wait for her baptism on Saturday!
then i just found out some amazing news! so an investigator that i taught in martinsburg is getting baptized on sunday! so Saturday susan will be baptized then confirmed on sunday. then right after church i am heading up to martinsburg to see her get baptized!!! i am soo excited! this is going to be yet another amazing week. the church is sooo true and the work is going so fast we can hardly keep up! miracles after miracles after miracles. Heavenly Father is so amazing! i am so blessed to be able to be a part of His work! i love being a missionary!!! MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!
P.s. sorry if this letter is a little over enthusiastic.... oh wait no i am not sorry :) hehe
