This week was the week of miracles! We made a street contact a few weeks back that neither my companion or I thought would come out to anything, but this week it did and it was a blessing from my Heavenly Father. The woman we talked to apparently felt, after we left, that she really did need our message and really wanted to talk to us. She tried to chase us down but we had already disappeared. She called people trying to find out how to get us back. She got a hold of us and back we went. We taught her and then came back a few days later and taught her whole family about the Restoration. She has 2 teenage daughters and one that is almost teenage.Eeek, that's a lot of teenage girls in one place! It was truly a special experience. Heavenly Father blessed us with a miracle and I knew that I had been in the right place at the right time. It was truly a tender experience to be in their home.
We had transfers this week. Sister Marchant and I were really nervous because we don't want to get separated. And we are...going to stay together! I am so happy about this! We have lots of sister sleeping at our house tonight because the new missionaries get here tomorrow. We are receiving another dupla (companionship) to work in our area. 3 duplas here, its going to be great! One of the new sisters is Sister Rodrigues--she's Brasilian, and wonderful. The other is a secret for now until she gets here....actually, I already know who it is. Shhhh. They will make a great team.
You should have gotten lots of emails with lots of photos this week. I hope they all came through. Parabems to Grant and David for making it home alive. You two are great.
I love you lots! Congratulations for Stake Conference, it sounds like a whirlwind of an adventure.
