Hey Family and Friends!:)
So this week has been crazy busy! Same old missionary work with new Sister Training Leader responsibilities. Haha! I love Sister Vera A LOT! We were just talking the other day about how we didn't even have to adjust to be companions....it just happened. And usually by being with each other 24/7 you find at least one thing that bugs you about your comp! But me and Sister Vera are weirded out because we haven't found any. We didn't even have an awkward or hard adjusting period. It has been awesome. And the fact that we both think each other are the most hilarious being's ever makes for a pretty great time!:)
We had zone training on Wednesday this week and me and Sister Vera taught about how our purpose as missionaries, "Our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.", goes hand in hand with Christ's (and Heavenly Father's) purpose, "To bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." (Moses 1:39) It went really well, but I was so glad when it was over! Teaching in front of 34 amazing missionaries is intimidating! The Grand Rapids Zone is on FIRE!!!:) Love this zone! (And the Lansing Zone of course, always will.)
Our area is going a little slow! We have like 2 investigators! One is on the struggle bus, but the other is progressing. Heather is in her 20's and is really just trying to know if the Book of Mormon is true. The hard part is she is really involved in the worship team at her church and it is at the same time as our ward. Pray for her to be able to come somehow! And also that we can find some new people that are ready to receive the restored gospel in their life!:) I know and have faith we will as we keep working hard and being obedient!
Oh! And cool story...me and Sister Vera were door knocking the other day and this lady was bashing us and the Book of Mormon hard core. While she was getting all riled up, we were just calm, loving, and boldly testified. Literally in front of our eyes her whole demeanor changed. We walked away with her still set in her ways, but she was laughing and smiling with Mormon missionaries, instead of yelling at us. She even trusted us enough to tell us about her family. It was such a cool experience!
Well, I love you all and hope you have a stellar week! Keep sharing the light of Christ with others! This world needs him!<3
Remember the church is true and I love you!
