Proud to hear about Haden killin it in yet another week of PV Vball! keepin rockin it out haden!
Hmmm so i don't really have that many hilarious stories from this week (shocking i know) but I have a kinda cool one!
It involve my gurl michele.
We do this thing where we write down on a piece of paper chapters for them to read and questions for them to answer. Then they go through the process- pray, read, write, pray, read, revise, pray. everyone calls it a "homework assignment". Except i think that's stupid so I call it "questions for you to answer".
anyway, so we gave michele one of those to do. Had her read Mosiah 2 and answer some questions. We gave it to her like a week and a half ago so i was losing hope in her doing it. But we went over on wednesday i think and lo and behold-
SHE DID IT.
and her eyes. her eyyyyes. You could see a change.
she was like "at first i didn't understand it. but then i prayed and read again, and i understood!"
Music to my ears.
ohhhh my gosh. bein on a mish, you just live for those moments.
I think giving out these assignments is really cool because instead of asking the investigator to "read and pray" we give them a specific thing for them to do, and if they realllllly do it, guaranteed to feel the spirit.
anyway, i about died when she said she did it. I'd never really experienced someone keeping a commitment before (poor me) ha but it really was just awesome. Something i'll never forget.
So sad day sister newell is leaving for nauvoo on April 10th and that's in like the middle of a transfer so most likely I'll be getting a new companion tomorrow. ew.
mission people are so weird and they say i'm getting a "step mom" cause your trainer is considered "your mom".
but anyway, i'm getting a new trainer tomorrow most likely so it'll be me, sister newell, and some crazy lady. Weird we'll be in a trio for like 2 weeks! We'll see how it goes.....
DAD please don't die in mexico by the way. Try to stay safe. I'll pray for you.
hmmmm i don't know what else to tell ya we have a few new investigators here and there but no one too golden yet. But maybe over time they'll become golden.
I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable in the ward here, and it's starting to get a lot more fun! I really like this ward, the people are so nice and I just am so happy i'm out of the miserable stage of not knowing anything or anyone, and slowly but surely Manchester is starting to feel a little more like home (kinda) (not home home. Temporary home.).
Wellllll people try and keep it real this comin week! I'll work hard here in virginia and start this freaking town ablaze with member present lessons so yeah. (long story. our ZONE had 3 member presents last week. sister newell and i plan to double that ourselves. just wait. you'll see.)
love you lots and lots!
oh and shocking news about mason, mom. That kid has gotta slow down. I can't keep up with him. Also i was thinking and around august is when mason needs to have at least met his future wife so then they can have a year to date, get engaged and plan the wedding and then i'll come home and he can get married. it's full proof.
mom thanks for taking care of all that stuff for me, you da best. dad, just keep swimming (and running and biking).
tell cole i got his letter and it was great. I'm so proud of him and his grades. no F's. What a scholar.
And mom i also got your letter. i'll write ya back.
Also mom i'm pretty sure it's your birthday either sunday or monday of next week (i can never remember if it's the 30th of 31st) REGARDLESS, LIVE IT UP YA FREAKIN 49 YEAR OLD you don't look a day over 20.
