Different things have been happening with all our people, we've lost contact with investigators, Miguel got sick, no one came to church, we were sad a little this week, and Satan was just getting everybody!! But all the while we were thinking "Miracles are going to happen because of all this bad stuff!!" It isn't the first time this has happened, and it's only because we are WORKING!! And we are trying to stretch and grow and do all that is required of us! So we are working through trials and trying to keep the Spirit and we're going to have Zone Conference tomorrow, and then Zone meeting after! Yay!
Tuesday (Happy birthday DAD!!) we got to go to the stake breakfast (I had pancakes for the first time in months, and had a headache for the rest of the day because of all the sugar I ate :/ ), and we sang all three verses of the Star Spangled Banner, had district meeting and other than that had a pretty chill 4th of July!
Wednesday we had a BOMB coordination meeting (with all the auxiliary heads, talking about missionary work). The AP's made a plan with the ward members and we jumped on it to make a goal for how many baptisms each auxiliary will have by the end of the year, and the room was yeno del Espiritu miercoles, y(full of the spirit, Wednesday, and) it was just so cool. I loved it.
STORY TIME!! So we got this referral from this guy, his name was Jose, of one of his neighbors. Anyways, so we went by it and this lady opened up and said "I don't have a lot of time right now, I'm cooking". So we dropped it and didn't think more of it. BUT we went by yesterday and a different lady (the other one was probably the housekeeper) opened up and she's like "oh, you are from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You are Mormons." AND it turns out that she went to church from ages 6 to 15 in Mexico!! So we found a less-active!! And what's more, she gave us a TON of fruit (see picture below.) it was so cool. It was such a tender mercy!! And we asked if we could come back wednesday, and she's like "how about Tuesday?" YESSSS!!!! She is such a sweetie, and we met her husband and daughter (15) and it was just so cool. :D
Love y'all! The church is true! Read your scriptures!!
(And happy late birthday Matthew!!)
Sister Koehler made red pepper pasta. And we ate it at 10pm Monday night BOMB.
we have incorporated smoothies into our routine. Now I have my eggs/rice/spinach/pepper bowl and a smoothie--and yes I drink all of it before we study, then another glass of water while we study. Stay hydrated kids!!
all the treasures from our less-active!!
