I want you to know you are all in my prayers. I love you all so much! The mission is just full of miracles. We get to witness them everyday.
First i want to tell you about this lady that we have known for a long time. So we met her the very first transfer i was here and she was investigating for a while and such but really had no interest in it so unfortunately we had to drop her. But she lives in our apartment complex so we would still see her all the time and we would share short little scriptures with her weather she wanted to hear them or not. We would always tell her to let us know if she needed anything. So this went on for quite a while and a couple weeks ago she gave us a call and was like i really need some help. So we went over and helped her with what she needed help with then afterwards she told us that she wanted to sit down and read some of the Book of Mormon with us. She told us that as she read the Book of Mormon she finally could feel that calm peaceful feeling we always promise she will feel. She told us that she loves it. Well that has continued on and she loves reading the Book of Mormon with us. She has had a lot of struggles in her life with drugs and such but then she called us the other morning ans was like i am changing my life around and i want to come to church. Holy cow!! That was music to my ears!! She made a list of goals she wanted to accomplish and when she wanted to accomplish them by. She told us that for the longest time she was trying to get rid of us but we just kept coming around. Haha she thanked us for not giving up on her. She has the cutest 3 year old boy. The other night when we were there we told her that we wanted to have a family prayer with her. so we all held hands and knelt down and said a family prayer. We told her that this is something our families do back at home. Well after that her little boy always wants to say a family prayer now and she thinks that is to coolest thing. Holy cow God works miracles through the Book of Mormon.
Okay now for a funny... awkward moment.... we went to go to our investigators house who has, now, more than ten dogs. As we were walking up to the door we noticed they had a screen door instead of the other door that they had i thought to myself "has that always been there or is it new?" It wasnt new new but it was new to the house. Well as we continued to walk up one of the big dogs started barking and jumped on the screen door... broke the door screen... and let all the little dogs out. What do you do in a situation like that? I am not sure either. Luckily not all of them got out but quite a few did. The owners are super easy goin too so it was all good. haha but i thought it was super funny... maybe it was a kinda had to be there moment.Anyway the work here is fantastic. I love this little town of Bright Indiana. I have learned so much and i know i have so much more to learn. Thank you for all your love and your prayers. Keep staying strong and know that i love you all so so much!!
