Wow, this week has just flown by. Well, really this entire transfer has. I am having a hard time writing this email today because I am completely exhausted. Earlier today, Sister Jeter and I did some shopping and enjoyed walking around downtown Montreal. When it was time to head back to the mission office to write our emails, we discovered that all the metros were down and not working. We ended up walking most of the way. Towards the end we boarded the most crowded bus ever. I am completely exhausted.
This last week has been crazy and busy with work. Sister Jeter and I had two exchanges to go on. I stayed in our area and took over. It was fun working the two days with Sister Willis and Sister Gentil. On Tuesday we had an awesome miracle when we met with Victor, whom we have not seen in awhile. It was an awesome lesson as we read in the Book of Mormon and talked with him about the gospel of Jesus Christ. He then looked at us and told us that he wants to get baptized soon!! It was pretty exciting. We are still praying that he can keep going to church and to have the desire to continue learning and progressing.
Also, another awesome finding experience we had was this last week at English class. We had two people who were interested in learning more than just English. This one woman, Houda, that I felt super close to the second I met her, came again this week. After English class I had the biggest prompting to go ask her to meet with Sister Jeter and I. She said, “yest!” Our Mission President recently made a new rule that missionaries can no longer teach English classes. He wants us out teaching the gospel and not wasting any time. This made me kind of sad because I love teaching English. I know it was inspired and I know we will be blessed as we focus more on teaching others about Christ. It is cool to see as our English class is ending, how many people we are finding who want to learn more. When we put our trust in the Lord, He will provide the ways and the means.
Well, this next week is transfer calls so we will see what happens with that. It’s pretty funny because everyone thinks Sister Jeter is leaving…haha, but I dont want her too!!
I hope you all have a beautiful week and enjoy the summer weather! I want to leave you with a scripture that really stuck out to me in my personal study this last week. I have been praying and fasting for certain things this last week. I came across this scripture in 3 Nephi 13:
“For your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask him…Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
This was such a big answer to my prayers. Our Heavenly Father knows and listens to all our prayers. He knows what we are need of and what others are in need of. It is not a time to worry about tomorrow or how things will work out because He knows all and He knows the desires of our hearts. He loves His children and has a plan for each one of us. Its up to us to accept His will and push forward in faith always expecting miracles. I love my Heavenly Father and I know He loves each of us. We are all daughters and sons of our Heavenly Father. I love you all!!!
