Not a lot happened this week...still cant tract...so not many good stories. SORRY! (all the good ones come from there, but oh well) ACTUALLY something huge happened! Our Branch has had very little hope in helping some of our inactives come to church, specially CLYNT! he's 17, 6'5", and 295 lbs! He actually reminds me a lot of Alex, so i guess thats why i get along with him so well (which is sad because Alex and I fought a lot! But i still love him(; ) ANYWAYS...HE CAME TO CHURCH! After 5 years of not coming, all it took was us buying him a white shirt for him to come back! Should of done that 5 years ago!
Elder Hill gave a great sermon in dm wednesday about inviting people to baptism and how we all are to pushy and how there is a better way. Was really good and we've seen a lot of success come from it as we have applied it to some of our investigators.
The best thing ever happened this week (other than Clynt) is that we've been talking A LOT about miracles and all the things that have happened in 3 weeks, well we decided to have ALL the members start doing a miracle log. I read this talk ( https://www.lds.org/ensign/
2001/06/miracles.p1?lang=eng ) last week in personal study and we decided to share it with them. So our branch mission leader is actually dating a sister from my mission and they are almost engaged. Well Elder Oaks is going to be doing their sealing in Salt Lake. So as we were talking about that sister scott goes "speak of the devil," and then makes this uh oh face and then we all crack up. SHE JUST CALLED ELDER OAKS THE DEVIL! We then told the members that when they are at the wedding they will just think of Scott calling him the devil. OOOPS
ANYWAYS! i know i've had yall do the miracle log before but after reading that talk...do it again! There is just so many cool things that happen around us that we need to recognize more in our lives! Yall got this! Send me some of the miracles that happen!
Now the subject line is because sister scott thinks this is really funny actually. She is 6 weeks (a transfer) behind me in the mission. She is also 6 weeks younger than me in real life. So she keeps saying we'll you'll do it 6 weeks before me, or you'll die (in real life) 6 weeks before me so then i'll know when I die. She is actually kind of a punk when it comes to SIX WEEKS of a difference:) But i love her.
Oh ALSO met the Ishee's in the Petal ward this week! I absolutly love them! They are so much fun! If yall havent met them...sorry! yall are missing out!
I love yall lots and hope yall are making the most out of your day!
