Hello! January 13th 2014
It has been another wonderful week! Last Monday for p-day we went up the Mammoth and it was so beautiful up there! Tuesday we had exchanges with the Sister Training Leaders and they were really good. One of them actually got sick when they got here so she slept most of the day to get feeling better. So The other one took a couple of us out and worked and went to appointments and we had some really great appointments too. We meet with 3 of our investigators that day and all the lessons were so spiritual and just amazing. One of them was our family that we are teaching and we watched the Restoration DVD and talked about prayer and how to receive an answer. The dad afterwards said, I really want to get an answer. We thought that that was really cool. We also taught the 13 year old girl who is an atheist and had a great lesson on Agency and the Love of God and how we can know that God is there through prayer.
The next day we did service for a less-active member who is coming back to church and then we headed for Lancaster. We had a Zone conference on Thursday and since it is about 4 hours away, we drove down Wednesday. We got to see 2 of our old District leaders while we were there and the great thing was I also got to see one of the guys that I taught who got baptized a couple of months ago !!! He is doing really well and loving the Gospel and the Church.
The Zone conference was amazing and very inspiring. Our mission President has set a goal of 50 Baptisms in March, and so to reach this each night at 10 pm, we are praying as a mission for the powers of Heaven to come and help us reach this Goal. And we are fasting for this purpose the next 3 fast Sundays! It is really exciting when you think about it and this area is picking up so fast and we are finding more and more people interested in learning and really catching on. I love being a missionary there is so much going on and seeing all the Miracles happening.
Friday and Saturday, Sister Kimball got super sick so we were inside for most of the day letting her rest and get better. But we had lots of good bonding time and studying time and we even painted for a while. You kind of go crazy when you are inside for that long as a missionary ! So we took it out with Painting! :)
Sunday was really good! Our family we are teaching came to church again and they loved Church. They are so different now after hearing the lessons and the spirit is so strong around them and I know they will and are being so blessed because of the Gospel. We also had a couple of lessons with Less-actives that went really well. Then we planned for the Book of Mormon class we are starting up this week that we are really excited about! Overall it was a very good week full of miracles. I know the Lord hears and answers our prayers and He loves us more than we can comprehend. He is real. I know he is. I am so grateful for the Gospel in my life and the difference it makes in the world we live in. Keep pressing forward no matter how hard things get. The Lord is there and we just have to put complete trust in Him, He will never lead us astray. Love, Sister Haws
