Heyyyy everyone!! I figured since I keep doing short emails that I owe you a good long one all about Mishakawa!
This week was a pretty solid week! Lots of good and some bad but thats just the life of a missionary:)
-funny- So on Thursday I had to get an ultrasound because I've been having stomach pains...thats not the funny part though. After we got done at the hospital we went to the food pantry with the other missionaries and they asked how it went and Sister Murray says, "ITS A GIRL!" hahaha it was so funny! (p.s. the ultrasound came out normal! So that's good:) )
-good- We met a super cool guy names Randy! We knocked on his door and shared #lighttheworld with him and we wanted to show him the actual video but he doesnt have internet! So we set up a time to come back with a member that had a smart phone so we could show it to him! We went back Friday and he loved the video! We also taught him a part of the Restoration lesson and he loved talking about it! Hopefully we can see him again and keep teaching him! He's the first new investigator we've had in a while so it's super exciting for us!
-bad- We got dropped by 3 investigators! (Dropped means that they no longer want to meet with us/are not interested.) But I guess you win some and you loose some!
-fun- We had exchanges with the Elkhart sisters on Saturday! I got to go with Sister Dawes again (my former companion and trainee) but this time she came to Mishawaka! It was a really fun day! We got to help decorate a Christmas tree! We also tracted and actually talked to some people who were interested! We saw some less actives too. It was a pretty solid day! And its always fun to be back with a former companion :)
-out of the ordinary- We also had our ward Christmas party Friday night! It was sooooo cool! They made it look like Bethlehem and we had "authentic" food from the time and there was a live Nativity! We also got to dress up as the angles! It was a really cool party and helped us all remember the true reason behind Christmas!
-work- The work here is finally picking up! We have been doing a lot of door-knocking and we have a goal to work with the members more in order to find people to teach! Our teaching pool is pretty slim right now and we KNOW that there are people out there ready to hear the Gospel and we just need to find them! So we are working really hard lately to try and find those people!
-spiritual- I have been LOVING the #LightTheWorld Christmas video! (if you havent seen it go on mormon.org and watch it!) It is sooo awesome and we are trying to do something everyday to be like the Savior! I love it so much because it reminds me of all the amazing things the Savior did but it shows that they arent just things that the Savior can do...we can do it too!!! I love serving others and this is just another excuse to get out there, forget about myself, and do things for other people!
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week and dont forget to think about the real reason for the season:)
