My dear family and friends!
What a wonderful week it has been! It started off with exchanges with Sister Creager! I've been living with her for the past 4 1/2 months, which is longer than I've lived with my own companions! Needless to say, I just love her to death! She is a wonderful missionary and she has inspired me to become better! We had a lot of fun working in the Young Single Adults ward! I even got to bust out my middle school slash college Spanish just like Cody did this last week! We saw a Hispanic man and his kids carrying stuff in so we helped him out. I introduced us as missionaries from the church... but that was about all I could do. My Spanish is really rusty. Hahah.
So after exchanges, I made a goal to talk to everyone. That's something that Sister Creager's really good at! We were in the library the other day and I approached this man and asked him to watch the video on mormon.org/motherhood. We got talking a little bit and he gave us his information but he's in the other ward's boundaries. Well we got a call from the elders serving in our ward yesterday and they said that this man that we contacted came to church! Whoa. Miracle moment! I was speechless. Needless to say, I'll be talking to everyone from now on!
And then of course there was Mother's Day! It was so neat to speak with my family. I want to brag a minute here though. I asked my family to help the missionaries out with referrals and with teaching appointments because I know how important it is as a missionary. Well I got an email from my dad this morning saying he did just that! I know that this work is bigger than just the missionaries. We are all on the Lord's team and we need to be working together! I would like to invite y'all to do the same! Find someone who needs the gospel and share it with them! It helps us as missionaries so much!
Anyway, I'll get off my soap box now! I love y'all! Have a blessed week!
