We had a very interesting day the other day. We went down this one road and the road only had a couple houses on it. We knocked on both of the doors... well we found out one is a Jew... and the other was a greek orthadox... That is something new. It was kinda cool though.

We had an awesome experience on Saturday. We were going to visit one of our investigators but they werent home so we started walking down the road and we stopped to knock on a door. Before we could even get to the door to knock this lady walks out and with a big smile on her face asked us how we were doing. She told us that she saw us walking down the road and was so excited to see us walking up her driveway. We talked for a little bit about her family and before we could even ask her if we could come and teach her more she told us that she was interested in learning more. So we got her address cause she was at her parents house. Well later when we plugged her address into the gps we found out that she was just barely out of our area. So we told the elders in her area about her as we got talking they had said they received a mormon.org referral with that same name and same address. It was so meant to be! So we all went over there yesterday. She wasnt there when we got there but her grandpa was so we all talked to him for a bit. We found out that they took a trip a couple years ago to utah to "visit the big church out there". haha that is what the grandpa said. We were like "Oh really" I learned so much from watching the way those elders interacted with him. It is amazing the things we learn each day out here. Sister Blackburn and i eventually had to go but the elders stayed there to wait for her to show up. Later we got a call from them and they said she showed up and was so excited to see them. They said that they are super excited to start teaching her and her family.
We were reading the book of Mormon with one of our investigators the other day and we commited her to pray and ask God if it is all true. She said she would and then when we came back we asked her how it went and if she got an answer... She told us she felt a little silly asking God if it was true because she already knew it was true because of the feelings she got when we read. That, my friends, is how the spirit works. It was absolutely amazing. I love those feelings of the spirit. I am so grateful to have the knowledge of the gospel that i have. I am grateful to share it with the people around me. I know this gospel is so true. I know the book of Mormon is true and i know without a doubt more than i ever have before that my family will be together forever because of the covenants that were made in the temple. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Thank you for all your love and support. I love you all so so much! Stay strong and know you are all in my prayers :)
