This has been a week full of miracles! We were blessed to be able to help out at the Special Olympics timing the racers and cheering them on. ❤ It was one of the best days I’ve had on the mission, probably because we got a million hugs! While we were there getting burnt I saw a guy that looked super familiar so we ran up to share an Easter card with him and his family. He told us he saw us at wal-mart last week and that he’s actually a member. He got baptized in the 90s and kind of just drifted away not long after. He came to church with his three kids the next day, all of which will soon be taught by the missionaries. 🙂 He’s not in our boundaries so we handed him off to the Elders. We’re way excited for him and his family because they want to get super involved with the church!! It’s amazing that all it took was an invite. 🙂
Another miracle we had was an awesome lesson with our Investigator Ben at the Jacob’s house! Sister M and I had planned to speak about our potential and how God wants to give us all that He has because He loves us. 🙂 We started the lesson and it started going different directions, which was great because we resolved a lot of his concerns.. but then Brother Jacobs literally started bearing testimony about Ben’s potential!! And then Sister Jacobs started bearing hers about Heavenly Father wanting to give us all that He has!! Mine and Sister Ms jaws dropped, we literally only told the Jacobs we were going to focus on God’s love! The Spirit was definitely working in that lesson and it was a huge testimony builder of how much He does for us. ❤
Well Bartlesville is still sweet as can be, I am so blessed to be here. Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more family… ❤ the people here are wonderful. I’m loving the mission, especially because I have an amazing comp!! Sister M and I are laughing a ton, whether it’s 50 birds pooping on our mini van(Mama Whale) and taking her off roading or meeting drunk investigators that want to get married in the temple.. oh or maybe it’s the fire alarm going off in the whole hotel at 645am telling us to evacuate while I’m in my bath robe. 🙂 It’s fine.
I pray y’all have a Happy Easter!! I’ll make sure to write an Easter letter soon. 🙂 ❤
