This week was quite the week!
Tuesday was super good because we had a meeting as a zone about what we can do to show God that he can trust us/how we can put more trust in God, and then zone conference was good too!
Tuesday we also met Billy and Ray (they are brothers). They were sitting in their truck, and we felt impressed to give them a card. So we did and said that God sent us there for a reason and Ray agreed. We talked with them for a while, and after a few minutes we said something along the lines of "we've only known you for a few minutes, but how do you guys feel?" (we were talking about happiness) and Ray said that he felt really good and that it felt like we had known them forever. Anyways, we set up an appointment, but then they couldn't make it, so we went over Friday night and talked with Ray. He talked a lot, and then we were super bold and told him that God sent us there so that he can change his life. And then we invited him to be baptized. AND HE CRIED. This big, tattooed man had tears running down his face.He felt the Spirit.
Other than that it's been a pretty normal week! We have really been guided by the Spirit this week. It's funny because Sister Jamile and I aren't really all that alike, but because we have the Spirit, we are more unified and are working towards the same goal! We have grown so much together, through the good and the bad. It's crazy to think that we have already been together for almost an entire transfer! It's crazy how time flies! And after this one's done, I'll only have three more?! Where did the time go??
Also Hurricane Harvey! We got a call at 11pm Wednesday night from our Zone Leaders asking us where our evacuation place is, and then Thursday we had our bags packed just in case we needed to leave. Friday they evacuated Brownsville so we had Sisters Estrada and Nielson with us for the day and they returned home Saturday. We are pretty sure the missionaries in Corpus and Sinton are still here in the valley, and we don't know when they will return. But we are grateful we are safe!
Thursday night our AC also went out, so they're still trying to fix that. haha. It's amazing to see how accustomed we become to certain things. :D
Have a great week! Trust in God!
Hurricanes make for really pretty sunsets!
