This week was pretty awesome!
First of all...the weather has been AMAZING! It was 80 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday!!! Which is about 27 degrees Celsius! So it was NICE!!! Spring is finally here!!
This week we had the opportunity to go to the Temple! We had "Return and Report", which is basically just a meeting with President and Sister Packard and the AP's where the new missionaries and trainers come together after 3 weeks of training to see how things are going, and afterwards we get to go to the Temple! It was amazing!!! It was such a great day! :D
On Thursday, we had a lesson with our investigator, Amanda. She has been coming to church every week, and she is just AWESOME! So we invited her to be baptised this week! She's praying about it, but we REALLY feel like this is going to happen! She is SO ready! She bore her testimony in church this week, and made people cry because it was so beautiful! She is ready to be baptised! Pray that she'll recognise that for herself. She is SO close!!
On Friday, we went to Vermont again to go to an appointment, and we had some spare time before the appointment, so we decided to go to an inactive member's home. They lived nearby so we thought "Why not?". Well, when we were driving there, we ended up going down this long bumpy road, beside this massive, beautiful lake. The house was RIGHT by the lake. It was BEAUTIFUL! So we knocked on the door and waited...and waited...aaaand nobody answered. There was nobody home. So we were walking back to our car, and this guy in a jeep pulls into the driveway, and gets out of his car, so obviously we're like "Hey! Do you live here?" He said no...
But then he told us that he's a member of the church, and he's from Connecticut, and he just has a lake house in Vermont, and he was just driving by, and saw us and decided to say hi. It was the most random thing EVER! But it was cool!
|WOO! Cars are fun!!|
Then on Saturday we had dinner with Lee and Anthony. Two of our recent converts, and they brought us out to have a picnic by a lake, and make s'mores! It was MAGICAL!
|The lake where we had our picnic! BEAUTIFUL!|
It was such a great week, and I'm excited for the week ahead! I know it's going to be awesome!
I love you all! I hope you have an amazing week!
