Week 4

So much has happened this week I feel as if it's been a whole month! Woah. We have seen so many miracles. Sister Jensen and I taught at our Zone Training meeting last week on the role of the Holy Ghost in conversion. We strived to apply that in our own teaching and have definitely seen results. We have three 'gators with a baptismal date! Super awesome. Now it's just getting them to want to come to church.. people are comfortable in their cultural environments and it's hard to see them gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon and still not want to come to church. BUT we keep bearing testimony and bringing the Spirit and God's love to them! 

Super awesome, on Wednesday we got to go to Orlando and do a temple tour with one of our investigators (His wife is a member)! Of course we didn't go inside but we got to walk around and talk about it. I just kept thinking of when my siblings got married in the temple to their spouses and what an awesome experience that was! 

So funny story: Friday night Sis. Jensen and I asked our three 'gators if we could bring dinner to their house and eat with them. They said sure! *miscommunication happened*... So we bring dinner over and they had cleared up the table space so we start passing out plates and forks and they're like, we already ate so we'll just save that for tomorrow! Ummm... awesome. So we package it back up and go on to teach the lesson. hahah guess that just goes to show how we need to be more straightforward about what we're doing! So that night when we got home we ate lots of cereal hahhaa. We had a good laugh about it :)
Last Monday night one of our 'gators had a stroke, so we went to see her in the hospital with her brother and mom. She was so happy! She couldn't speak very well. But she said she knew we would come and a member from the ward gave her a priesthood blessing. Then we handed her a Book of Mormon we brought and she was so happy she turned RANDOMLY to Alma 22:8 and read out of the blue "Assuredly as thou livest, O king, there is a God" Go find that scripture! It was the coolest thing!!! She's all, "I know that's from God". Her family has so much faith!
I started a miracle journal and write down miracles I see everyday. You all should start doing it too! It's the coolest thing. Kinda like a gratitude journal too. :)
We went to a Less Actives house the other night and they had an orange tree. Let me just tell ya, Florida Oranges really are AMAZING. Seriously the best.

Here's some pictures from the last few weeks! Most are from the MTC and my District there. And then Florida and my new comp :)
I hope everyone is doing well back home and at school! I miss you all! Just remember the Church is true, the Book is blue, and if you aren't reading it, you NEED to! I love this gospel. I know it's true. My testimony has grown so much already. Never cease praying and reading the scriptures. The Lord needs his disciples to be all in. Stay strong!
