Hey everyone! This week was awesome! We had so many good things happen! It is definitely because of our willingness to work and look to the Lord in everything! He blessed us so much!
Here are the highlights!
Monday: I made a goal with myself that I was gonna be EXTRA obedient and diligent this week because I knew the Lord would only bless us if we are willing to put in the work! So I studied really hard and prayed and decided with the Lord what I was going to do to be better and work really hard all week long!
Tuesday: My quote for the day was "You are called to serve, not called to sit around!" We worked hard today and did some awesome stuff!
We got a haircut in the morning, and then taught a recently baptized guy who has had a hard time coming to church. He is so funny and we had a great lesson about the strippling warriors (Alma ch.24).
Then we went to the library to look at the map of the city and also for Sister Price to work on things for home since she leaves next week!
Wednesday: Today's quote was "Whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it."
In the morning we had a district meeting at the church! It was really good and went along great with my goal to be better!
Then we had to leave early because we had a lesson/lunch with our investigator Lauren! Shes so awesome! We had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings in downtown Indy. She has a friend who is Mormon and started asking him some questions about it but he moved so he told her to meet with us! She has a lot of questions and we were able to teach her about Gods Plan of Salvation! It was a really good lesson!
Then we went to help a member move into her new house! Then we had another lesson with an investigator! We met up on campus. It was another really good lesson and we feel like we are finally getting somewhere with her! yay!
Right after she left another guy, who we met for the first time, came and we had a lesson with him! He was contacted by some missionaries up north by Chicago but he moved here before he ever got the chance to meet with them again so we got his information! He is super cool! My favorite part of the lesson was when we shared the First Vision of Joseph Smith with him. As I was quoting it his eyes got bigger and his smile too! After I finished he had a huge smile and all he could say was "wow!" It was such a tender moment:)
Thursday: No quote for today but it was a busy day as well! We had a lesson with an investigator in the morning on campus! It went well and we talked about baptism and what Christ teaches us about the correct way to do it.
Then we had another lesson with a new investigator! He was taught by lots of missionaries in the past few years but came to a point that he felt like he couldn't do it anymore. We reached out to him a few weeks ago and then had lunch with him and he said he feels like he is ready for it again!
In the afternoon we had a lesson with Stacie! She is doing so awesome! She has now been to church 3 weeks in a row and had kept all of the commitments we left with her (reading and praying)! We invited her to be baptized and she said YES! without hesitation! On Sunday when she came to church we asked her if she had prayed about the date she wanted to do it and she said March 18! Yayy!!! We are so excited for her!
Friday: We had Missionary Leadership Council all day! We met with President and Sister Carlson, the assistants, and all the other zone leaders and sister training leaders in the mission. It was a really good meeting! We had some great trainings and discussions about how we can help the mission continue to improve!
After MLC we went out to dinner with a member from Sister Price's old area! She took us to a cool pizza place downtown! It was really yummy!
Saturday: We did some yoga, and then had 8 baptisms to attend! (Two families of 4). It was awesome! One was for the Spanish branch and the other for the ward in White River.
Sunday: Stacie came! We had some awesome lessons at church and then came home after and rested because we both werent feeling very well.
Overall it was such a great week! We were blessed so much! I know that its through our faith that the Lord will bless us with miracles! Ether 12:16
"Yea, and even all they who wrought miracles wrought them by faith, even those who were before Christ and also those who were after."
Love you all!!
