Week 38: laughing for days #whatelseisnew

Well this week was AMAZING. I can't even begin to explain how awesome it was!!
First of all, we picked up 4 new investigators which was such a miracle!
One of them is a former investigator who doesn't have a belief in God but she wants to know that He is there. I've never taught someone who doesn't believe in God but I'm excited for the chance to do it and to show her and help her feel the love Heavenly Father has for her.
We tracted into the other 3 new investigators. We tracted so much this week and it was seriously so fun!! I loved it! We picked up this amazing couple and they have so much potential! It was awesome. they let us right in and let us teach them the restoration so it was awesome!
We had zone meeting this week and we gave trainings in 2 zones which is always fun! I gave a training on patience, which is definitely something that I can work on so it was probably inspired that I was asked to give a training on that. Actually it definitely was inspired haha
We started teaching a guy named Todd a couple weeks ago and taught him the first couple lessons and he came to church with us which was awesome but we had to pass him off to different missionaries. But he got baptized yesterday which was awesome and he invited us to come and give talks at his baptism! It was the greatest! He was so happy and so prepared. I love baptisms. You can just see the happiness on his face. God is so great.
Oh also we went on 2 exchanges this week which was fun! We did service at one of them where we got to paint old ladies' nails and serve them ice cream and it was sooo fun!
So some funny stories from this week:
1. we knock on this door when we were tracting. we hear a little boy inside say: "i'll get it! it's probably my friends!" and he opens the door and he sees us, his eyes get wide and then he hides inside the house haha it was the funniest thing ever #whycan'twebefriends?
2. we knock on another guy's door and he's like hey I've seen the book of Mormon play! and we were like hey, the book is way better than the play. do you want to read it? and he was like, nah, i'm not a reader. and so I flip open the book of Mormon where they have pictures at the front and i'm like "but hey, there are pictures in it!" and you could tell he was just stumped and he was just like ummm no thanks and closes the door. but it was so funny and I laughed for days.

one last thought:
"the distance between you and heaven is the distance between your knees and the ground." #boom. that's so great. God is so great and He always wants to hear from us and help us so pray on!
love you all, have a great week!
