What a weekend, right?! I feel like I could say so much about everything that I loved! Here are a few highlights from the week:
Tuesday morning we met the cutest girl from Spain named Rocio! It’s the coolest story how we met her. Sister Clifford is from California and she had a good friend who is from Spain as well and recently got baptized into her ward in California. Last week Sister Clifford got an email from her saying that her best friend from Spain just moved to PRATTVILLE ALABAMA! (seriously who moves to Prattville from Spain?) And she wants friends! We contacted her and she was totally open to us coming over so we did and it was the best and she even made us spanish food. Wow it was the best. She wants to learning everything we have to teach her and meet people from the ward!
Friday was zone conference! I love zone conference and I love Montgomery so it was a great day!
We watched the Saturday afternoon session of general conference at Mary Ann and TJ’s house! Goodness they are some of my favorite people in the whole entire world. It was sooooo good for them to have that in their home. They are making such incredible strides forward! My heart swells when I think about all the amazing progress they’re making! It is a privilege to witness it.
Sunday afternoon between sessions we went to visit Steven. He’s a former investigator, kinda on again off again. He just has so many distractions in his life right now and is not willing to take investigating seriously. He LOVES the Book of Mormon though. He totally knows it’s true he just won’t make the connection that if that’s true, everything else is. We pulled up to where he was sitting on his truck and he said, "I’ll tell you one thing, the Book of Mormon saved my life." A couple days ago he was in a bad almost rollover in his truck and to be honest I couldn’t really understand what he was saying but his Book of Mormon was in the truck with him and he truly believes that it saved his life. How cool is that?!
That night we took Daileigh with us to an appointment with Preston. We tracted into him a couple weeks ago and when we first met him we were positive he was going to bash with us. He showed all the signs of it haha. But he didn’t and he’s actually really awesome! So last night we taught him the restoration and he stopped in the middle of it and said, "I have to be honest with y’all. My brother is an ordained minister and I called him and asked him about the Mormons. He said to stay far away from y’all." If you had seen me in this moment I was trying so hard not to just roll my eyes. (bad I know haha) BUT then he said, "But I think that’s just his opinion. I really want to know if all this is true." Talk about a relief. He is really so sincere and he LOVED that he can listen to the Book of Mormon on his phone!
Whew! What a miracle filled week!
I am so grateful for the chance we had to listen to the words of God’s servants this weekend! I am also so grateful for the Book of Mormon and the emphasis that was put on it. We NEED this book. It changes lives and has everything we need. I LOVE THIS BOOK!
All my love,
