WEEK 19.....I THINK :)

note from Mama B......It's actually Week 21!!! I'm counting even if she's not...hahahaha

Hello!! Happy Summer! I can't believe it's June already!! :) 

This week was so awesome! We had the best lesson EVER with "L". Even with all the crazy things that are happening right now, she continues to turn to the Gospel and it is making the biggest difference in her life! And its not big things either, she is just turning to the scriptures, improving her prayers, attending church, relying on the Lord....I can't even tell you how much it has helped her! Its the little things we do everyday that help us through the darkest trials in life! I know that for a fact:) Yay for "L"!

Transfer time...Saying goodbye to some of these goofballs. So sad but so excited for their next adventures.

Heavenly Father never ceases to amaze me with how He answers our prayers, in HIS way and HIS timing. We were able to see "S" this week!! AHHHHHH We knocked on her door and her HUSBAND anwered and said, "Hey Guys! Come on in." .....uhhh what???? (Need a refresher? Please see last weeks post) And I'm not even joking...pretty sure we just stood there for a second in awe. Wake up sistas....act professional...don't cry. :D haha We went in and had the best conversation with him. We just became friends and got to know him better....but he was ACTUALLY TALKING TO US. And he didn't kick us out...or threaten people this is huge:) Then we shared a general message on prayer from the bible and he was into it! Later "S" told us that he has admitted that he needs to stop drinking and improve himself. We didn't see this coming and neither did she! But now he is so much more supportive of "S" wanting to improve her life too!! Baby steps...but holy cow we were freaking out! I'm so grateful...Heavenly Father is preparing the way for them better than we could imagine! 

We had a sweet YW come with us one day who just received her mission call to Brazil. It was so fun to have her there...we were talking about missions and it was one of those moments where I couldn't believe that I was actually a missionary...finally! Even though I've been here for a while, I just got so excited hahaha I love being a missionary! How great is my calling:) 

OH one more cool experience...we were heading to an appointment and it ended up falling through, so a lady popped into our heads that we should go visit. We showed up to her house but she wasn't available either. BUT we saw a huge moving truck across the street so we went to see if they needed help! Turns out that they had people scheduled to come help them move, but they never showed up, so this family was left to move by themselves. Talk about crazy cool timing. We were able to help them bring in their things and we could tell they were super appreciative. I LOVE SERVICE! Also a cool part of the story...we have a return appointment with them next week:) Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
BeautINDYful Sunset!!!
"And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings; Which light proceedeth forth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space-The light which is in all things, which giveth life to all things, which is the law by which all things are governed, even the power of God who sitteth upon his throne, who is in the bosom of eternity, who is in the midst of all things."

As for our scripture this week....D&C 88:11-13...the world needs some light right now! I know that light is only from Christ. Go let that light shine:):):)
