Well to start off conference is AWESOME as a missionary!!! It is so addressed to us!! We had to miss two of the sessions because we had to be in our apartment by 10 pm and we couldn't go to the church. Ah well I will try to download them sometime so we can listen to them in Piso. But onto the miracles!
We were walking through a plaza and Elder Jennings told me to start the next contact as he pointed to a family sitting on a bench. I walked up to them and asked them if they believed in God. The Mom harshly responded "NO," followed by a "Well yes, but we are Catholic." But that didn't stop us. Just because someone is a member of another church doesn't mean they can't convert! After a couple more words, they suddenly changed into really nice people and we ended up getting their number and address, having a lesson, and setting up a return visit! It was fantastic!!
The next miracle happened when we were really trying to be obedient. Elder Jennings and I were at the church for a young single adult activity and the senior missionaries made food for everyone after. We had a plate and Hermana Gardner offered us more. It was already 9:50 and we were going to have to run home to make it on time. We were debating on accepting the second plate of food or running home. We knew what we had to do, so we declined and began running! There came a point when we were about halfway home and we knew we weren't going to make it on time but we had to keep running. I yelled out to Elder Jennings, "we will be blessed for our obedience!" We kept running, FYI running in a suit and church shoes SUCKS. But not a minute after I had yelled that phrase, the Elders Quorum President's Wife pulled up in her car and asked us if we needed a ride! It was such a blessing and we were even able to accept the ride because there was a male old enough in the car! We managed to get to piso 1 minute late, but it would have been later without the ride! The Lord really does bless us for our obedience!
This last week has been so fun! I have gotten to talk to Elder Dailey about all kinds of old fun Utah County stuff! It has been a blast having him in Piso!! The mission is so great!!! Well it is now almost time to get back to work, so I'll email you all next week love you all!
