Today has been the best P-day of my mission! We have been having loads of fun. It's been such a miracle serving here in good old oldham!! We had a meeting with our bishop yesterday and he gave us a list of names of recent converts and returning less active members he wants us to re-teach and a list of endowed less active members. It was a powerful meeting and I am excited to go out and see miracles from his faith.
To choose a
zone baptismal goal we're having each bishop in the stake pray for a goal for
their ward. Elder Rasmussen and I felt very strongly that this needed to be the
way the goal was chosen because of our last stake meeting. I
am really excited to see what happens!!
we had something funny.. our car broke down so we had to leave it at
the garage!! (This is a picture I took. I don't really know 100% what
this statue is for but I liked it so I got a picture..) And walk to our
next appointment. Which was fine. It was in the same area.. but then we
got to travel to the mission home to pick up our NEW CAR.. (haha.. we
got to drive the mission presidents wifes car!! haha)
This is me driving.. it.. ;) hehhehe.. Now we have this.. unattractive
blue car.. I sure hope we just get our old car back soon!! hahah. SO
that's been fun.
had a miracle. An appointment fell through and we were walking back to
our car as this lady crossed the street to meet us! She told us she has
been less active since she was 16 (she is now around 37). She wants to
raise her 3 kids in the gospel and also her partner wants to be taught!
It was amazing. We have seen them 3 times now and they are making great
progress. Oh how I pray that they will be able to surround themselves
within the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's all I want for them! They are an
absolute wonderful family. I love them and I know God loves them so
SURPRISE! Back to Barburrito. mmmmmm... :) Elder Rasmussen loved it.
zone is amazing. Miracles. Everyday. Elder Nilsson is spectacular (he's
my new district leader)! I am so happy he is in this ward! The sisters
in Oldham are great. Sister Tholin(brand new out of the MTC) is just
such kind person and we have Sister Dushku who is BACK in Oldham after
being gone for almost a year! I know the ward is just going to love
them! They will see miracles. WE will do the impossible!! We will live
for God! I love this gospel. I love being a missionary. Life is just
