October 19, 2015

I already know this is gonna be my favorite transfer ever. I'm just so glad I get to serve with Sister Johnson. It's so cool to see how much we've both improved since the MTC. We all teach so well together and the area is having so much success. 

Miracle! We went this former investigators house to try and meet him and this giant Sudanese man answered the door instead. He wasn't the guy we were looking for but we talked to him and his name is Daniel and he said that he had seen a Book of Mormon a while back and had read some of it and knew it was true but he didn't know who to talk to about it and he said there was no way he could get to Utah so he had given up on joining the church. We told him he didn't have to go to Utah to join and he got so excited. We invited him to be baptized on November 7 and he was like "Yes! Definitely! I can't wait!" He's so cool.

Second miracle! So we were trying this other former investigator who lived in an apartment and she was not interested AT ALL, and shut the door pretty quick, but then Sister Johnson decided to try the door across the hall so we did and this cute lady answered named Tamra and she has the most adorable 4 year old son named Joel (Jo-el) and she's super quiet but she let us in and we taught her about the Restoration and invited her to be baptized and she said yes! She really wants to come closer to Christ. Good thing we know how to help people with that. And she actually came to church yesterday!!! I get so excited when that happens because it almost never does. People aren't good at following through. But she totally came and stayed for 2 hours.
But she kind of got drowned in gospel principles class with waaaaaay too much information, so we're hoping that doesn't scare her away. We're really worried about that. They were talking about all kinds of crazy things that never need to be mentioned in gospel principles class, and they even mentioned briefly that we're trying to become gods, sooooooo maybe you could pray for Tamra. That would be much appreciated.

This is called a wire worm. They're basically the worst things ever. We find them all over the basement and they're so annoying. Good thing Sister Johnson is brave enough to take care of them for me and Sister Tiritilli. 

We got to go to the temple on Saturday with our recent convert, Eden! She's 14 and she's my favorite person in all of Nebraska. She and her mom (who recently became active again) got to do baptisms in the temple for the first time and we got to go and watch and support them. I loved it. 

​I just love being in the country again. So much better than a city.

You can never take too many pictures of the sky.

Quote of the week: "You're kind of making me uncomfortable . . . " ~This awkward lady we tracted into the other day. Yes, because you don't make us uncomfortable at all. We are completely comfortable knocking on random doors trying to talk to people about Jesus.

Actual quote of the week: Be cheerful and be fearless.
