So this week has been so full of miracles! We actually hit a term the mission uses known as a triple double. That means we were over 10 on member presents, new investigators, and people at church in one week! We ended up with 12 ember presence, 12 people at church, and 19 new investigators!!! The cool thing about this is the past sisters leaving the area told us they didn't and couldn't find in this area!! They were lucky if they found one new. So HOLY MONKEY!!! God has been directly directing our path to find his children who are more ready and prepared for this gospel! He IS Hastening His work right now. I am witnessing it first hand! Just go out and try your best to do missionary work, and God will direct you. He will! Trust in Him. He wants to hasten His work, and His only way is through you. So why wouldn't God work through you?
We just taught one of our investigators, Adam Bondie, the Restoration last night. The spirit in that lesson was so strong! We committed him to baptism on and he accepted!!!! We have so many lessons to teach him, but he is so ready! I am so excited for him!!!
Funny story, we went to visit a less active member in our ward Sister Davis. We went to her house and saw a car that we didn't recognize in the driveway. So as we were walking up we saw a lady get into the car and start to pull out of the driveway. We walked up and she started talking to us. I asked if she was Sister Davis's sister (we actually don't know if she has a sister or not) and she said yes. They looked so much alike we were shocked, Sister Stucki told her that they look a lot alike and asked if they were twins. She said yes. I asked like 4 other times if she was Sister Davis's sister, she said yes and looked really confused. So then we started asking her about herself and she got even more confused and told us that she was Sister Davis! So then we were confused and we all just stood there awkwardly for a second and didn't know what to say. Apparently she didn't understand our questions earlier and it was actually Sister Davis and not her sister. So that was a weird awkward moment and we ended up just kind of saying goodbye and left and she drove away. It was very strange and I am sure the next time we see her it will be a little weird.
Well I hope you all have a great week! I know I have! I just love the mission so much! It is a crazy roller coaster but it wouldn't be fun without the downs.
