Shea- I sure hope you have every intention of telling me where
you're going on a mission, because Fanfan told me you already got it :P
Lauren B- totally wrote you a letter back but it went to
Anyways, this week has been crazy! I leave on Wednesday, so
don't send things to the MTC!
Where do I even start.
Unfortunately, I have no idea where my camera cord is. So there's no way for me
to send you pictures haha.
We go to devotionals at the Marriott Tuesday night and last time
they were like "oh btw this whole west campus is in the choir." so we
did that. For the sake of everyone around me, I held my peace.
We met with this investigator who, we aren't sure if she really
is or isn't since they don't tell us, but the power was out and it was hot. Her
name is Luanna, she's from Arkansas, has cancer, really reallly sweet. We start
talking, and getting to know her, and it's great. Then I was asked to pray so
I'm like ok. I start praying. And suddenly, I feel myself slowing down. Like it
came out soooo slow and I questioned myself but I went with it, and the last
thing I said was "please bless that the lights will turn on, and please
bless that no one will get hurt because of it." Literally 3 seconds after
the amen, I kid you not, those lights came back on. And that is the power of faith.
Our progressing investigator, Dani, who's actually our teacher,
is doing really well. Last time we met with her, I felt the prompting to ask
her to pray. She said no, but then I was like "Dani. I can promise you
that if you will pray with us right now, you WILL receive an answer
immediately." So. Bold. Like I would never say that myself. She agreed
after that, and man. Such a wonderful moment, because she really felt it. So,
Companionship strugs- Totally thought this would be easier. It
was a good learning experience though.
I don't think I have anything else to say! But I hope all of you
are doing well. We were talking about the power of the Holy Ghost in guiding
and directing you daily, and it is so real. Such immense power that I could
never imagine, words coming to mind that I wouldn't say. Church is true.
