Hello, all! This week has been crazy for sure. Ups and downs of missionary life...like a roller coaster!
On Tuesday we had a great district meeting on obedience. We have been trying really hard to be on time and have the Spirit with us so we can make the best decisions on how to spend our time. Later we were tracting and Sister Anderson stopped and wanted to say a prayer. She prayed that we would be able to give away a Book of Mormon. The next door we knocked on was a guy we had met the week before who is a social studies teacher, and he was interested in reading it, so we gave one to him! A little later, Sister Anderson prayed that we would be able to give away another one before we moved to the next neighborhood. Again, the next door we knocked on we were able to give it away. When we get to the next neighborhood, we pray that we will find a new investigator before dinner. This means that we have to make a return appointment, and there was only half an hour before dinner. But we found a woman who was going through a rough divorce and felt we were sent by God to give her strength. We set up another appointment and both were great lessons. She wants to come to church. She went to court on Friday and we haven't been able to talk to her and see how it went yet, but we saw a little girl's scooter outside when we stopped by on Saturday so we think she got custody of her kids :)
Let's see...on Thursday we met an old couple who had monkeys in their backyard. It was really cool! They are licensed as exhibitors so we signed a guest sheet. On Friday there was a leadership meeting so we went to Tampa and I was with Sister Lance and Sister King on campus. It was really fun! We did studies together and then made a delicious chicken alfredo pizza for lunch. We taught a lesson in the student center and gave someone a church tour.
Last week there was a man who walked into church. I guess a friend recommended he come. He really seemed to like it and participated in the class discussions. He stayed for all 3 hours. He came again this week and came right up to us and said he wants to meet with us to learn more. We set up an appointment..but he doesn't actually live in our area so we invited the elders and we will meet at the church.
Anyway, there is great stuff happening here! There are some great members who really love being involved in missionary work and have friends they are sharing their beliefs with. We are having dinner on Thursday with a family who is really good friends with a family in our ward. Yay!
Hope y'alls are having a great summer! And I also hope it is not as hot as mine...haha! Just kidding, it's not that bad :) Sending love from Florida!
Only one picture this week ... but it's awesome! Haha, these birds are cool! They are everywhere!
