So this week was...awesome!!
I hope you all had a great New Years Eve! Ours was fabulous! We came home at 6pm (that was our curfew), and we watched some "Preach My Gospel" DVD's. If you haven't seen "The District", it's a MUST see! We also did some crocheting. It's a hobby I've picked up recently. We're making scarves. They're lovely! I know...I'm such a granny. But it's fun..seriously!
|This is us crocheting on New Years Eve ... we look so unhappy in this photo but I promise we're excited!|
A miracle that's happening here is that people in the Branch are more willing to come out with us and help us. They recognise that we really do need them and we can't do the work without the members. The members are SO important!! We are experiencing wonderful miracles every day!
Another amazing miracle is that our investigator, Gary, came to church with his girlfriend on Sunday. She's a member. He told us at the end of church, that he wants to get baptised!! He has a lot of things that he needs to work on before he can get there, but the desire is there, and we're going to help him through everything! We are so excited for him!
Another miracle...one of our recent converts, Joanna, had been missing for the past 2 weeks. Nobody could get in contact with her and she was NEVER home. We were all really worried about her. On Saturday we got a call and it was Joanna! She was staying with her parents in a town that's not in our area. Good news is that she's safe. She is struggling a lot though, so we got the Elders in the Springfield ward to visit her, which they did. They shared an uplifting message with her, and they even brought someone with them who was willing to help her out with ANYTHING! She is in good hands there, and we're so glad she's safe.

I hope you all had an amazing week, and are looking forward to the week ahead! I know I am!
I love you all <3
