Wk # 48: H E L L O :)

Once again, it was another wonderful week full of so many tender mercies AND COOLER WEATHER! I feel so spoiled.
Labor Day was interesting... there were ZERO people on campus! It was brutal. We were the only two souls on TCC. haha but it ended up being a good day :) We were able to see Dena Monday night though, and once again. Another INCREDIBLE lesson. We set a baptismal date with her, and we are SO EXCITED! Heavenly Father is working miracles in that family. So many miracles. I am extremely humbled and grateful that He's letting me witness it. 

Tuesday we had lots of cancelled appointments, and lots of contacting, and we ended up getting a few new investigators that are super awesome!

Wednesday we got to go back to Crestview for MLC. It's always SO spiritually uplifting and fun. I am SUPER excited because our mission is the first in the United States to implement a new form of work! It's only been done in the Philippines, and they had a ton of success. When Elder Stanfil and Elder Nelson came and toured our mission, they left President and Sister Smith with a huge prompting for the mission. Elder Nelson said that he had never before been prompted to implement this in the United States, but is super excited to see the outcome. We will now be focusing on less active/ inactive members more than finding new investigators. Our goal is to strengthen the church here in the south and help them become unified and strong. I am SO excited about this. The way it was presented was incredible, and the spirit definitely let me know that this is what's going to unlock the south! 

Thursday we were blessed to teach lessons ALL day. It was a miracle!! I can't even express how grateful I was for that. The things we taught were so strong, and the spirit was with us all day. Huge blessing!!

I went on an exchange with cute Sister Lawrence serving on FSU and that was super fun! She is a sweetheart. We were able to teach someone on the spot on TCC campus, and he was super interested became a new investigator! It was AWESOME!!! 

We got to share the gospel with so many people this week, and my testimony grew so much. I have SUCH a strong testimony of diligence and patience. Heavenly Father is super aware of each one of us!!! 

I don't have anything else super exciting, but man. it was SUCH a great week!!! 

Elder Bruce R. McConkie said, 
"I think that people who study the scriptures get a dimension to their life that nobody else gets and that can't be gained in any way except by studying the scriptures... There's an increase in faith and a desire to do what's right and a feeling of inspiration and understanding that comes to people who study the gospel--meaning particularly the Standard Works--and who ponder the principles, that can't come in any other way."

I love you all so much, and hope that you study the scriptures and apply the teachings into your life. They will forever bless you and your family!
