The Week Miracles Happened! (they do happen every week!)

Sister Hanson and Sister Fenn

So it was frigid cold this week! But we did the best this week than we have ever done!!!!!!!! A mission is amazing! God has really given me some amazing things to remember! I probably say this every week, but this week has been the most amazing week ever! I have seen God's hand everywhere I go.

This week we met with a sort of recent convert named Chloe! She is 13 (she kinda reminds me a Katie and she even has really curly hair!). She is not excited at all about reading the Book of Mormon. So we read a story in the Book of Mormon with her and made it come alive and she loved it! I am so happy that she can see a little bit more of the what the Book of Mormon can do for her!

We had a double booked appointment this week. So we went on exchanges! I went with Angel's visiting teachers! and Sister Fenn went with another member to teach an investigator! So I had the visiting teachers teach part of the restoration! They did an amazing job! They made it relate to her a lot more than I ever could! Visiting teachers are amazing! Sister Fenn taught Lorain with another member who knows her quite well! It went wonderful! She will be attending a baptism tonight with us so she can see how her's will go! We both have had the impression that Lorian will be baptized this year and at least be ready to be baptized when we leave.

We met with Rebecca when we went exchanges! She has been struggling since we last met with her! We know why she has been struggling because she has not been reading her scriptures and praying like she used to! She missed us a lot. She recognized that when she was meeting with the missionaries that her life was going well and when she was not meeting with them her life started to slowly go downhill. We committed her to come to Sacrament Meeting but things stopped her from coming. I hope she will come soon!

Tom and Susan are doing wonderful! We went with their home teachers and had a spiritual meeting with them! Brother Bober shared his conversion story! It brought the Spirit so strong!

One of our investigators came to church on Sunday! She brought her mom!!!! They both got priesthood blessings! Kellie, the investigator, had recently got into a car accident and the only places the car did not get crushed was the place where the Book of Mormon was sitting and where Kellie was. Her mom asked us for a Book of Mormon because of that! Now her mom is going to start coming to church with Kellie!!!! She will start meeting with us soon! This is a miracle!!!!!! God's plan may not be what we want to happen but all of his purposes are for our good!

So as you can tell! This week was amazing! I hope you can all see the hand of God in your life daily! Most of the time it is the small things that make the biggest difference! Today I also read Alma 41. Verses 4 and 5 really spoke to me! They talk about God's kingdom is endless happiness and if we are happy in this life we will be happy in the next life but if we are evil or unhappy we will be the same in the next life!
