This week has been really good! To show about how great it was, we got 15 lessons this week! Which, isn't the greatest, but in comparison to our average of 8-10 lessons we've had a week since we got here, we thought that was quite a treat!! So, on Monday we got a new investigator, YAY!! Her name is Stephanie and she is very sweet! We got her as a referral from the other sisters; they were teaching her boyfriend's friend. So we had a great visit with them and she's really open to taking the missionary lessons, she said that she has a Christian background, but hasn't been to church in a while. Anyway, we weren't able to teach her the Restoration this past week, but we hope to teach it to her this next week! Then we were able to see the Fabians and they are doing really well! It's so fun to watch them continue to progress, and we've been studying the Bible and Book of Mormon with them which has been exciting! Then we had a really good day on Tuesday! We were able to contact one lady in one of our wards that our Bishop wanted us to go see, which was a blessing because we hadn't been able to contact her yet! Then we were able to see the Kurzhals and we had a great lesson with them! She has only had a couple of the missionary lessons, and has been pretty quiet when we have gone to see her. But, this time after having a visit, we asked if we could teach her the missionary lessons again and she said yes! And then she said that she would teach us lessons about Native American pottery! So, win win! :) Then that evening we had dinner with a sweet couple in our ward and they had their less-active son and his family over! It was a pretty quiet dinner, but they are a nice family! We were able to teach them the Restoration after dinner and it went pretty well! We told them that we would love to teach them the Plan of Salvation, and they said they would get back to us on their schedules! Then we were able to see another lady in our ward that we haven't seen in a while, and we went back later in the week and read from the Book of Mormon. It's fun to go through the basics with people and help remind them why we do the things we do! And I just love the Book of Mormon with all of my heart! Anyway, we also saw Ashley this week and it was a good lesson! She is doing really well and is wanting to do what is right, we just hope we can hold on to her! She did come to church which was good to hear! We also saw Jane and she is doing well, she is such a neat lady, we love going to visit her! When we got there, she was on a tractor digging up tree stumps, she's pretty cool. :) We were also able to teach the Willis' again!! We taught the Plan of Salvation and it was so fun to be able to watch him think about where he wants to end up after this life, and then watch him realize that that is why we have to do certain things if we want to end up in the Celestial Kingdom. It was just a good lesson, and we sure do love them! Then we saw another less-active couple and explained the Word of Wisdom again. We were very bold with them, and it seemed to work! By the end I think she actually understood why she couldn't have coffee or tea anymore. Then we were able to see Megan again this week. She is so great! We taught the Plan of Salvation with a little kit that I have and she was teaching her little boys the lesson, which was really cool to watch! You always learn more when you're the teacher! Then Saturday was a really fun day. We got to spread manure for a less-active lady in our ward! We honestly did have so much fun with it! We love doing service, and it was just good to talk with this lady as we helped her. During our conversation, she also told us that one of her friends asked her if she could come to church with her! We were so excited to hear that she is being a missionary, and that we could have another potential investigator! Our hard work is paying off, slowly but surely. :) Then Sunday was pretty good, it's just always a busy day getting to all of our meetings and trying to see people in the evening, but it was a good day! I hope you all have a great week, and remember to hasten the Lord's work however you can! :)
One of our sweet members that fed us this past week, we sure do love her!
