week 49 SURPRIZE

March 24, 2014

We had a pretty good week! We definitely had some ups and downs...but mostly ups :)
Up...we found a new investigator after 6 weeks of not having a new investigator! We thought that he and his wife were golden! Down...we went back on Sunday and they dropped us. They are Catholic and really don't want to change. I think someday they will be ready, it just wasn't the right time.

Up...we had stake conference on Saturday and Sunday. Elder Pieper of the 70 came and spoke. The Ware's also came and spoke. The main topic was hastening the work. One thing Elder Pieper said was- "the Lord acts through those who are on His side." I know that's true, but we also have to let Him work through us. We have to follow promptings we get. I know as we pray for the chance to have missionary opportunities with the intent to act on them, the He will lead us to where we are suppose to be and give us the chance to share the gospel.

Up... the biggest up of the week....ready??? President Ware called us on Wednesday anddddddd I GOT MY VISA!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!! I'll be leaving onApril 15th to go to the Brazil MTC for 2 weeks and then will go to my mission in Vitoria! I really didn't think that my visa was ever going to come. Its a little bitter-sweet to be leaving the WKM, I will miss it. But Heavenly Father knows where He needs me and I will go where ever He wants me to go. I am excited for whatever comes next :)

UP.....We had a cool experience this week. We were tracting and a lady answered the door and we introduced ourselves. Then she started crying and told us how her grand daughter is only a month and a half old but is terminally ill and isn't going to live much longer and how she is having a really hard time and so is the rest of her family. So I asked if we could share a scripture with her. We did and then we prayed with her. I could tell from looking at her that she was so much calmer. She was comforted. She said that she knows God sends angels on the earth and called us angels. It was a great experience  :) Moments like that make me love being a missionary :)

Well, I hope you all have an amazing week! Keep on smiling :)

By the way...I forgot to mention...we found Jesus this week ha ha. We were walking and I looked down and saw that paper :) A lot of people we tract into tell us that they found Jesus already...but we literally did this week!
