M&M's Missionaries and miracles :)

Hey all my wonderful friends and family! I hope you all are doing great! This week has been a week of miracles. I just love the mission field. It defiantly has its ups and down moments but overall at the end of the day it is just great. 

To start off with the rain here is amazing!! haha it can be completely dry and such one moment then the next  moment it is just a down pour... and when i say down pour i am not exaggerating. It POURS!! Which in not entirely a bad thing. The other day we went to go and contact this person and we and all the sudden it just started down pouring. We looked in the car for our umbrella but it wasnt in there...  Haha we were drenched. We knocked on the door and no one answered. So we made our way back to the car. But being drenched already i couldnt help but jump in every puddle that i saw on the way back. The only bummer about the rain here is that we are always in nice clothes so it does not look very professional being drenched... but what do ya do... besides remember your umbrella next time.

The miracle for the week was we found this cute little family that we just love. It is a mom and a dad with two little kids. A 4 year old little boy and a 2 year old little girl. They are absolutely amazing and they seem to be humble seekers of truth. A funny story about that we went to an appointment the other day and when i knocked on the door there was a flyer for the baptist church haha. So before they answered i was going to hurry and take it off and stuff it in my purse... but i felt that i probably shouldnt do that. Then the next time we met with them the mom was like " we recieved a flyer from the baptist church the other day after you guys left. I am starting to wonder if our church is not the right one." (because they attend a non denominational church) So it could work to our benefit. Also their little boy is so cute anytime we come over he always yells to his mom "the girls are here" It just makes us smile a whole bunch. They came to church for the first time yesterday. It was stake conference so it was like a 2 hours sacrament meeting. With two little kids was quite the adventure. We are praying they will come back next week. Sister Blackburn and i tried to entertain the kids while they tried to listen. We also had some of the members help out a ton. It was awesome and they agreed to meet with us again on Tuesday so that is a good sign. And they gave us a hug afterward which is also a good sign seems how we have just been shaking their hands. They are just fantastic and have made it through a lot together as a family. 

I read this scripture this week. It is in First Nephi chapter 11:17 It is when Nephi is asking the Lord the meaning of Lehi's dream about the tree of life and the rod and such. And the lord asks Nephi if he knows the condescension of God and Nephi replies and says that he knows God loves his children but he does not know the meaning of all things. I think that is so amazing seeing how much Nephi and his family went through and all he needed to know was that God loved his children and he made it through it all. I know that God loves each of us. I hope you all know that he loves you too! If you know that you can make it through any trial any affliction anything that is put in your path. Just turn to him and he will help you through. I know this to be true. I love you all so much and you are all in my prayers constantly! I love you!!!
Love your sister Davis :)
