Week 28: i have no idea for a clever subject. sorry.

Well this week was great!
Pretty interesting but SO GREAT.
We've been working sooo hard and we're beginning to see good things happen because of that.
First of all, the zone leaders took our car for a while so we walked soooo many blocks and it was so fun haha
and then lets see, we found a new investigator this week, Mary! She was a referral and she is so awesome! she wanted a bible so we went to give her a bible and she was like well when can i get one of those book of mormons? and we were like RIGHT NOW YO. and it was awesome. and she told us she was going to read the whole book of mormon in 2 weeks because she "didn't want to be behind" and we were like wow okay haha she's awesome
We started this bingo game in our zone where we just got up and talk to people and try to accomplish these weird things and find weird people. we talked to people in their cars and we went to this huge outdoor mall place and just stopped and talked to everyone and seriously had some of the coolest experiences. we got to give out lots of book of mormons and cards and talk to so many people. we got to pray with people and just talk about Christ and it was AWESOME.
it started snowing a ton. ew. like one day it was 72 degrees and we were like dannnnnng this is nice and then 3 hours later it was 32 degrees and was snowing. #awk
funny story of the week:
one of our sweet investigators was talking about how she wanted to baptize her cat and i was like no that's not quite what we do. but sister smith thought she was kidding and she was like YES i want to watch this, i'll be here to videotape it. and i was like um, no....and then we left the lesson and sister smith was like that was funny. and i was like, you know she was being serious right? and she was like NO i thought she was kidding. and i was like nope....hahah it was the funniest thing ever. so we cleared that one up later.
I was reading a talk this week, "Broken things to mend" by jeffrey r holland and my favorite part was:
"My desire today is for all of us—not just those who are “poor in spirit” but all of us—to have more straightforward personal experience with the Savior’s example. Sometimes we seek heaven too obliquely, focusing on programs or history or the experience of others. Those are important but not as important as personal experience, true discipleship, and the strength that comes from experiencing firsthand the majesty of His touch."
I love how it points out that all we need to do is simplify the gospel and our lives and just trust in God and feel His power and then we'll be all good. His grace truly is sufficient.

I love you, God loves you! Be good this week!
