So just to start this email off letting you know I had to spend most of my time for emailing waiting for the dumb computer to understand what I wanted it to do. So now it finally brought up the email site. Dang computer. But anyways. I would like to take this time to share a miracle with you.
Last week on Sunday, we were attending sacrament meeting in slight frustration because another of our investigators decided to blow us off and not show up. So I was sitting there pondering, when a family we knew quite well walked in with someone we didn't know. I didn't think much of it because sacrament meeting had already started. Well half way through, I noticed her again and then I started wondering who she really was. So after the meeting I had to talk to a few members concerning some business that needed to be taken care of and i didn't get to talk to her. But sure enough, she was there in gospel principles class that we suddenly got to teach! (our Ward mission leader was sick and had to leave). great opportunity and we centered the lesson on families and how important they are to us. This must have been inspired and directed by the spirit because it was just what Cindy (her name) needed. Her eyes lit up the whole time as we showed her how much the Gospel of Jesus Christ is centered around families. We talked to her a little more but relief society was getting ready to start for her so we didn't want to hold her up because she was really excited about everything. Unfortunately we didn't get to talk to her after church like we talked about so we stopped by the families house that brought her to church and they told us what a wonderful time she had at church on Sunday and is planning on coming again. She has already expressed intrest of joining the church and being more involved. How sweet right? well it gets better. This last Sunday she showed up again! And she loved it, AGAIN! how amazing. We have an appointment with her and her fellow shipping family on Friday for dinner as well. The Lord truly does provide for his children. He loves all of us even though we have so many faults. His perfect love is what gets me through the struggles and frustrations we face everyday.
Also, last night, we had a family home evening with Abraham inside one of our members homes. He loved it. The spirit was truly there and he was leading that meeting we had. And afterwards, the member made pumpkin cinnamon rolls...YUM. they were delicious.
But that's been our life lately. I love you all very much!
