October 6, 2013 Time is the weirdest thing on a mission!

Sister Nicholson and I

Dear Lovely Family!

I think part of being set apart puts you in a time bubble. It's weird. Time flies! And at the same time is slow. I can't explain it.

This week has been real good. We had the exchange sisters come, which was really cool. I was with sister Ash, who is Samoan. We knocked one door and the guy was trying to tell us we had a racist church that would not let anyone but white people, and she was like 'Uh, I am Samoan and I'm on a mission, so pretty sure it's not just white people'. he didn't really know how to respond to that. It was really funny.

30-We found service! Starting next week we will be doing service at a food bank. I know it sounds dumb... but it's really hard to find weekly service here. But the food bank is perfect because it allows us to see LOTS of different people.

1- I have been studying Charity. Today my study was particularly effective. It is amazing how the Book of Mormon talks about it so much. Love, and the other components of charity found in Moroni are all through the Book of Mormon!
 2- Today we had a lesson with an amazing lady named Sharon. She referred herself! it was so cool to be able to meet with her, when she sought us out and is truly searching for truth.
3- We had a lesson with a Less Active. I think we totally made his day be talking with him. It was really amazing to hear his story and testimony. Sometimes people just need to know that they are missed to come back. He said he would be there Sunday!
4-Exchanges! Ah so good! What an amazing learning opportunity to be with someone way experienced and great
5- Total miracle: we were driving to our dinner appointment and we saw a lady crossing the street. Both of us had the impression to stop. Once we did and got turned around, she was no longer outside. So we went and knocked her door. We did a normal tracking approach... and she let us right in. We were stunned. We then asked her what roll religion had played in her life. Ha! Turns out she's a member! (she's like 80 or something) and someone close to her had died the day before. It was a moment where it was obvious the lord knew her needs and used us to comfort her.
6- General Conference. Of course! It was interesting how one theme of conference was Gender Rolls and morality. It is amazing how confused the world is in this aspect!

Well i have no time. I love you all! Hope you have a fantastic week!
