I can definitely testify of a few things:
1) hard work pays off, and everything is in the LORDS TIME!
2) Greenie power is REAL! :)
3) the book is blue and the church is true!!
OK, so its been an awesome week! so much good has happened and we've had some awesome lessons we've taught. i'll try to remember to put in a spiritual experience this week, sorry, i'm always so rushed :P
MONDAY: was awesome! we played games, shopped at walmart, went golfing, got a package from mom (shirts are awesome and love the fun stuff :P). we had dinner with the lamberts (it was DELICIOUS as usual!) and went to YSA FHE, and had a lesson with the T*. M* is doing really well, understanding everything and remembering most everything!!
TUESDAY: we had a pretty busy day! we tried to make a lot of visits and contact our referrals, but not as much luck as i would've liked. we finally had a lesson with P* though and Miracle #1 of the week: we put him on date for baptism!! :) it was a long time coming and we're all super excited! had a lesson with S* as well at night and the O*'s. S*'s lesson we talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ (faith, repentance, baptism, holy ghost, and endure to the end)... and guess what?! another miracle! we put her on date as well!!! :D was an awesome day! we also got a referral from brother chamberlain for a 9 year old in a semi-active family that we are going to start teaching... and put on date this week! so many good things happening in the area and in peoples lives!! PLUS in the O*'s lesson we commited them to all going to church on sunday (aren't sure yet if they did or not but we will find out! :P)
WEDNESDAY: We had another lesson with the Tovars and then right after that went into Salt Lake so sister Smith could take her drivers test. we got there and she was SUPER nervous, because she has never really driven in the city before, she (in missouri) lives in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road. but she said she would try and do her best, we said a prayer, and she did GREAT. probably better than i did haha :P after that we had lunch at IHOP with the giftcard that sister rutter sent me and i had delicious pancakes with peaches and rasberry :) shoutout! ♥ ran to deseret books so sis smith could get a few things, then home for a service project. That night we had a lesson with M* and F* and they are getting married, and he asked if he could get baptized on the 9th, the day after their wedding!! MIRACLE #3!!! wow wow wow! i was so happy and full of the spirit this week it was awesome. we did tell him that there are certain commandments he has to follow and he said he's willing to live them when he learns about them, but he really wants to be baptized and eventually sealed to his family :) I LOVE THE GOSPEL!!!
THUSDAY: was another great day! we did our regular morning schedule, had a lesson with g*, i think the biggest struggle we have with her is that she ALWAYS says she will come to church and is very genuine, but she has shown up once, and that was mothers day. in MAY. its kinda frustrating, but i think we're going to try to do temple square with her. we had a lesson with S* as well again and that went well, everyone is on board with the bapism! we haven't been having as many lessons with p* because everyone has been super busy (he's been working, family drama, etc.). we also saw n*, dopped R* as well, which you could tell he was really disappointed about and we're probably going to pick him back up sometime soon :) we had a lesson with the m* in the trailer park, and it was altogether a busy day and i felt grea! weather has been cooler and we had some rain and thunder this week, especially on sunday! :)
FRIDAY! we surprise weeded for the V* again for morning exercise (before it got too hot)- the pile was HUGE!!! O.o Distict meeting, lunch (subway with the giftcard from sis Rutter again!!), planning, correlation, a quiet not super busy day, a usual friday. but planning is going really well! President wants us to be expert planners by the end of july, and i feel like i'm starting to get there!
SATURDAY: had correlations, saw T* up in the trailer park and set up an appointment, chamberlains gave us a giant bag of walnuts from her tree... they are HUGE and SOOOO Good. SO GOOD. we saw l* as well, and made visits.
SUNDAY: busy sabbath as usual, it will be weird to come home and 1) have only 3 hours of church, 2) not be 100% busy! we never have spare time on sunday! always somewhere to be. we went to gospel principles with m* and f* and in Lakepoint sacrament meeting sister pearson was released as relief society president! O.o it was so sad. you could tell she was bummed, but is all the lords plan. went to Primay with S* and i was sitting next to her in sharing and singing time... and she was sneezing every 10 seconds... literally! we were really confused and then we realized... she was probably allergic to me or my clothes! because i think the shirt i was wearing has some silk in it and she is allergic to silk :P hahahaha. fun sunday adventures :P primary is more fun than i remembered too!! :P we did the stop smoking lesson with m* and f* and that went really well, he's definitely got a long way to go in a short amount of time, but i know he can do it!! :) i have faith in him and in the lord and in the gospel!
I love all of the had work we've had the opportunity to do this week and i can't wait for this next week too! :) have a great one and Keep the Faith! :) ♥
SISTER HANNAH JOHNSON :)
