Happy last week of January!
wut wut wut wut.
We had such a great week, some of the coolest moments and miracles. At the beginning of my mission, my dearest mother sent me the coolest talk ever. Its called, "Bread or Stones; Understanding the God We Pray To" by S. Michael Wilcox. (I HIGHLY recommend it, it's become one of my favorites) We were pondering and praying about what to teach "A1" this week, and this talk came to my mind, so on Pday I printed it out and planned to give it to him to read. I had it with me in my bag the next day as we taught our investigators on campus (we planned to teach "A1" later that night) During one of our lessons, one of our investigators was getting pretty frustrated- feeling like God wasn't answering him and feeling like he wanted to give up. Instantly the talk came to my mind, and I even had it with me, so we read some of it together, bore testimony, and had a recent convert in our YSA ward who was with us share his conversion story too and the spirit was very strong. Our investigator left the lesson wanting to keep going, keep holding on, and keep trying. AMAZING RIGHT? Heavenly Father is aware let me tell ya!
We met with "J" again this week and holy cow, this kid is amazing. He read the intro and testimonies in the Book of Mormon and had the most in depth questions about it. He said he really loved church and what he'd learned and when came to the next lesson saying that he prayed about a baptismal date for himself. He came up with April 22nd and is excited! He said he really wanted this before he goes home at the end of this semester because he knows that "certain temptations will arise as he goes home and he knows this will help him be strong". Amen Brotha
We met with "A2" this week and every time we see her I feel like she comes more and more prepared. She even had a friend encounter anti and ask her about it and she defended it and expressed her love for what she knows to be true. We've also started teaching her some of the commandments and guess what, she's already living them. haha we love her! She is working towards, and excited for February 25th to get baptized:)
Ok funny story from our Personal Contacting this week. We were out talking to students and saw on a screen that it was opposite day! So we got super excited and switched name tags hahaha clever right...we're genius lol. So we walk up to contact this guy and I shook his hand and said, "Hey, how's it going? I'm Sister Bur..Kam..mmerrr...man...." then Sister Kammerman says, "I'm Sister Burgon!" AND I LOST IT!!!!!! We both couldn't do it, we started laughing so hard and he probably thought we were crazy! Bingo buddio...we are. Well then we had to awkwardly explain that I was really Sister Burgon, not Sister Kammerman and it was opposite day...but hey he was cool and we got a return appointment, so proof that Heavenly Father really is in charge of this work, not even His goofy daughters can mess it up ;) and a little laugh is good for everyone:)
|Funniest part of this story...turns out opposite day was actually the following day!!!|
We'll just chalk this one up to a blonde moment!!!!
Along with doing really cool service-inputting records for FamilySearch.org, having members powerfully testify at lessons, and having really cool surprise investigators at church, it was just an overall great week.
The Lord loves ya! He is there! Matthew 10: 6-7,19-20
"But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."
Love, Sister Burgon*
