Well hello there!! How are you all doing this fine week? Things here in Texas are just as great as ever. The Lord truly is watching over us and is so mindful of us. We are so very lucky.
Just making some chile rellenos!
So I'm going to start off with a great miracle that we have had this past week. We were walking down one of our dearly beloved streets (literally like Mexico) and a car pulls up next to us and a woman says "Hola Hermanas!" Turns out that she is a member who had just moved to that street two days before. She had us get in her car and she took us down to a trailer they had just bought. She didn't know where they'd be going to church, what ward they were in, or anything--and then she saw us! I know that it wasn't coincidence that the Lord placed us in one another's paths. She has a son on a mission too! Whoo! She invited us to come over to dinner later that week and when we got there she tells us they invited neighbors over for dinner! Ahh!! That is just what we long for as missionaries! That's how we can work through our members to find new people to teach! Unfortunately the family they invited didn't get there until right when we had to leave, but just seeing her desires to share the gospel with everyone is so amazing! She is so excited about the work. I already love her so so much and know that she is going to be an incredible addition to our ward.
This week was full of so much learning on my part. As I am looking back through my journal I think...wait, that was this week? Time is flying so fast and so much is going on that it's almost impossible to remember everything! I had the opportunity to speak at Zone Conference this week on our responsibility in helping others become converted, and that was a good experience for me. I talked a little bit about the difference between testimony and conversion and shared an example from the New Testament about the apostle Peter. In Matthew 16 it says: "13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Cæsarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?And they said, Some John the Baptist: some,aElias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say aye that I am?
THE FATTEST BEAGLE I HAVE EVER SEEN
