Week 26

Sister Woods had a dream last week that I left her on her own to try and navigate Blanding and she was called to train. The elders were giving her a hard time telling her she probably will be training lol! President Adams called us Friday night when I announced that president was calling we both looked at each other and I could see Sister Woods die inside. But instead President Adams called for me. I have been called to be a Sister training leader!!! I am honored to have this calling and help some other Sisters find themselves.  Now Sister Woods can breathe again.
                We found a new investigator while using center of strength. She is so hungry for the Gospel. She is full of questions and is willing to meet with us every chance she gets. We plan on inviting her to be baptized.
                There is another investigator who is a Young Single Adult age that we are working with. After teaching her the Plan of Salvation we invited her to be baptized.  She said she didn’t know what to do or think. She was raised Traditional and her family is strictly Traditional (Native American) All that we taught her was new and contradicts what she has been taught her whole life. We asked her to pray about it. To ask God if what we are teaching is true and if she should be baptized. We all knelt in a circle and she prayed right there. She said a beautiful heartfelt prayer and a lot of silence. She said “I don’t want to do it but … I now I need to do it.” The she asked what you need to do to be baptized and other questions.  She would say to herself December 12th (that’s the date we prayed for and asked if she would prepare to be baptized on) with a big grin. She said she was going to talk to her family about it. She said they are probably going to be mad at her. We got a text latter this week saying she talked to them and they think it is a good idea. WOW! The Spirit truly does soften hearts.
                In district meeting we were having a council about how we can improve as Missionaries. Somehow the topic of “how come the sisters get into more homes than we do?” came up. One Elder asked what our secret was.  Sister Woods and I just looked at each other and said “I don’t know” (we are the only sisters in the zone) they had a few theories. One Elder said it’s because we get to wear bright colors. Another Elder said it’s because we product certain hormones. LOL!
                For Halloween we had to be inside by 6 p.m. So we did our weekly planning. Afterwards we were going to celebrate Halloween by making a microwave cake but… we didn’t. We went to bed early instead.
                Sister L got her mission call this morning!!! She was the one we helped make the decision to serve. She came to our house dancing on the porch with excitement, waving her call packet around. She wants us to be there more than anyone else. She won’t be opening it until later tonight so I have to wait to tell you all where she is going until next week. I’m so excited for her.
