Hello everyone!Wow ... it's so difficult for me to write these emails because it's hard to sum up everything that happened because so much happens EVERY DAY.
Some highlights of the week....
We had a FANTASTIC lesson where my companion and I really worked in unison and followed the spirit. I would think of something to say and then feel that it wasn't me that was supposed to say it, and Sister Engebretsen would jump in and say it way better than I could have. The whole time everything just fell into place like that.
Also, we do so much less active work, and that's really exciting for me. We had four less actives come to church this last week, one of whom hasn't been for like .. more than a year. We've been working with her and doing service and it was so wonderful to see her.
Another POWERFUL miracle was when this one kid, who is a friend of a few of the young single adults in our ward came to church. He had no belief in God as far as we knew, and only ever came to a few FHE's because he was hanging out with his friends. Well he came on fast Sunday and bore his testimony and said (because I wrote it down haha) "I came here today to bear my testimony. I haven't believed in God or Christ for a long time, but I started reading the Book of Mormon my friend gave me and I read the whole thing last week and I'm half way through it again. And I feel something. I don't know what, but I know that Jesus is here." WAAAAAAAA????? Power.
Anyway, other than that, we're pretty busy. I love Sister Engebretsen - we laugh A LOT and she is an incredible trainer. She's very patient and very kind.I wish more crazy funny things happened .... mostly we're just goofs so we laugh a lot. At one point we knocked on a door and no one answered, so we turned to the side and knocked on the apartment door right next to it, and like a minute into talking to THAT guy, the other dude answered his door, so we awkwardly were like, .... "Uhhhhhhh" and the guy we were talking to was like, "Help him!" and slammed the door in our face. But the other dude who took forever to answer his door became a new investigator so ... the Lord's hand is in this work :)
Hey hey hey! So ...1. Me and Sister Engebretsen with glasses at the store. Random ... but thought you might enjoy.
