First off....CONGRATS TO DALLIN DURTSCHI! You're going to be a great missionary in the Russia Novosibirsk Mission!
This week was spent....not in Greenville. hehe we spent a lot of time in the Clinton area of Mississippi. We got to drive down to clinton tuesday night and spend the night at a sister's apartment...but it was awkward because they were on exchanges with the STL's so they were not there. Wednesday we had zone conference. Thursday we had exchanges with the STL's (Sister Mitchell is AMAZING!). and then drove back late Thursday night. Friday and Saturday consisted of clean up's from the flood. Sunday was church and weekly planning. So this was a super crazy week! BUT it was EASTER and I just love talking bout EVERYTHING THAT JESUS DID FOR US!
At zone conference we recieved in our vehicles a new gift.....a TiWi. Idk how many of yall know about them....but they are black boxes from Hades. They tell you when you go over the speed limit by 5mph, when you stop to fast, when you turn to sharp, when you hit speed bumps too fast, when you run over pot holes (that one is a problem for mississippi), and when you dont wear your seatbelt. Guess we wont have as many accidents in the car...but still it is a demanding little box that has a robot voice.
So many miracles come from following the spirit! Let me tell ya a little story. So as we are cleaning up peoples houses. We were at a house who's whole back room had to be destroyed. I was in charge of the paper work for the church and the state in order for us to help these people so it gave me a great chance to talk and get to know the people. In doing so I was able to share the Easter video the church sent out. I absolutely loved the smile these people had on their faces when they realized everything was gonna be ok through Him. There are miracles all around us all the time! But this one lady who we were working with was in tears. She said that we could come back and teach more and that she would come to church! It was such an amazing experience because she DID come to church and she felt the spirit so strong! I love the joy people have when they feel the LOVE of our Savior!
I'm now asking yall a HUGE FAVOR! So this area needs A LOT of help! Well lets be real....the SOUTH NEEDS HELP! but I would love it if yall would write down yalls testimonies in half a sheet of paper and mail it to me! I will then put them in the Book of Mormons we hand out. They can be about anything....but I would love to add your witness to this gospel along with the witness of the Book of Mormon. Maybe yall could do this as a FHE one night or just a sunday activity. I would GREATLY appreciate it though!
I hope yall have an amazing week and remember to make the most of each day!
