Hey hey everyone! We had a wonderful week!!!!! And it all started with my new companion on Tuesday! Her name is Sister Burgon and she is AMAZING!
I picked her up at transfers on Tuesday (and said goodbye to Sister Price :'( ) and then we got to work! And we worked hard all week long! It was great and we had some cool miracles come from it! Here are some of the highlights:
Wednesday: Lots of planning and goal setting! We got super pumped and excited for this new transfer! We met with our investigator Caesar and he is great! He actually took our challenge of praying....except he fell asleep in the middle of it! Darn! You win some, you lose some. But he prayed with us during the lesson and it was very powerful!
Thursday: Exchanges! I was on campus with Sister Reed again! I love that girl! We had a day packed full with lessons! They all went really well and one grace was that we got to talk to Sister Price on the phone! When we were at our lesson with Eddie, he needed to call her to ask a question so we got to talk to her briefly too:) Another AMAZING grace was the sunset! (see pics below)
Friday: MIRACLE DAYY!!!!!! So in the morning we had district meeting with our new district! They are all super awesome and Im excited to get to know them better! So we had an awesome meeting about goals and then we set some! In the middle of it we were talking to the elders (the ones that live across the pond from us) and long story short, we made a bet with them of who can get the most new investigators! Loser has to buy ice cream! We were soo pumped and we wanted to beat them so bad, so as soon as the meeting was over we all went out and started working really hard! And we had 5 new investigators from it! But not just any 5....a MIRACLE 5! Each one of them has a story behind it and and each one of those stories was a miracle of how we met them! We also got homemade traditional japanese food for dinner, so that was great too!
Saturday: We went to the temple with Eddie! Except there was also a wedding happening from the Mishawaka ward and a ton of people I used to know were there and it was sooooo awesome to see them all:) While we were at the temple, Eddie got to be baptized for some of my own ancestors so that was neat as well!
Sunday: A great day at church even though our investigator didnt make it:(
