Double rainbow! It looks really faint in this picture but both rainbows were super bright in person.
Sister Brunner and I were able to meet the standard of excellence last week (2 weeks ago actually) and we were super excited about that and then we were SUPER cose to getting it for last week too, except we needed 3 investigators at church and we only had 2. But we had 11 less-active members come to church, and we got 4 new investigators (which is probably the most I've gotten in a week) so we met the standard of excellence in our own eyes.
And we had a miracle last night! We were walking to our car and I looked at this house and jokingly thought about trying it and then I wondered if we actually should try it or not, and Sister Brunner and I had just gotten in the car when I was like, "Wait. I can't tell if it's a prompting or not. Should we go try that house up there?" So we got out and tried the house and joked about how we would be disappointed, but then these 2 sisters in their early 20s answered and they had just moved in recently and we told them about the church and they've actually gone to our church before and one of the girls has already read the whole Book of Mormon and the other said she really wanted to read it and they said they want to come to church next week. So that was definitely a miracle.
Quote of the week. "He loves us because He is filled with an infinite measure of holy, pure, and indescribable love. We are important to God not because of our resume but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God's love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked. What this means is that, regardless of our current state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us." ~Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
Sister Brunner's taking a selfie with the goats. Their names are Alma, Aaron, and Abish. Aaron is trying to eat Sister Brunner's hair in this picture.
The Byers have 6 baby turkeys that will follow you allllll around the yard. They're actually kinda cute. I got a video of them following us around the yard and then one of them came up and pecked my camera lens in the video.
