Hey y'all! I hope everyone is doing well! This week has been something. To be honest it wasn't super eventful, but we saw some amazing miracles take place!
First of all, the Becks came to church yesterday!!! Woooooooooooooooooo!!!! It was amazing! We got a text from Sister Beck yesterday morning that said, "We will be at church today. Will you have a seat saved for us by you?" Well OF COURSE we said we would and then Sister J and I jumped up and down and danced and screamed and it was awesome. Ken was so funny at church. Everyone came up to the
Beck's to introduce themselves and welcome them to the ward and Ken was smiling so big and just fit right it. They brought their son and his wife with them. Their son isn't a member, but his wife is less
active and has been for a really long time. They agreed to have us come over and teach them which is really exciting! The Beck's have been progressing so well and it's been the coolest thing to see their
desire to follow Christ grow. I think that's my favorite thing, to see a light start to grow in someone's eyes as they realize that they have a Heavenly Father who loves them and has a perfect plan laid out for them. This gospel is so cool!
We taught the Raya's again this week as well and Tara told us all about the experiences she's been having with prayer. Heavenly Father is guiding her through some things in her life right now and she knows that she's not doing it alone which I think is awesome. Lexie asked us the most awesome questions about forgiveness and repentance and knowing God is there for you. She is so cool because I am pretty sure I wasn't asking deep questions like that when I was 13. I love teaching the Raya's because they help my testimony grow. They ask questions that make me think about my faith and then I get answers to my prayers. I love when I learn more as I talk to others about the gospel.
On Wednesday we had a transfer breakfast and a zone meeting. Transfer breakfasts are probably the most awkward events known to man. So missionaries are just naturally awkward I think we can all agree on that; but at transfer breakfasts it's even worse because there are 6 of us sisters and like 15 elders and the elders don't speak to the sisters and the whole vibe is kind of like we are back in 6 grade at a dance and nobody from the opposite gender speaks to one another. And then we all sit at a table together and I swear there are crickets because no one talks and we just really awkwardly eat our food and sort of look at each other. The sisters eventually start up their own conversation and the elders start up theirs. Oh gosh it makes me cringe, but it's also like the funniest thing ever.
At zone meeting we talked about the Sabbath day a lot since the general authorities have been making that a priority. A couple of things I really liked from what we learned:
* Attending church and keeping the Sabbath day holy will increase the faith of the saints.
* It's difficult to get less actives and investigators to go to church because the adversary knows how much attending church will bless our lives.
* The sacrament is for everyone. We go to church so we can partake of the sacrament and remember our Savior.
I know that there is a reason it is a commandment to keep the Sabbath day holy. It is because it strengthens is and will allow us to more fully feel the spirit and have it guide us throughout our lives.
I have transfers coming up this next week so please don't send anything to this address until I know what's happening. Even if I don't get transferred out of Cheyenne, we are moving houses this
weekend so my address will change.
I hope everyone has such an awesome week! I love and miss you all!
