This past week a dream came true for me! I was able to go on exchanges with both Sister Jeppson and Sister Ellison! Two of my best friends out here in the field! They are in a trio so we were all together and had a BLAST!!!! We were in their area: Aiken, South Carolina and it was the coldest day ever!! The cold goes right through you! So I never felt warm that day! But we worked hard and had great success! We taught a lady out on her porch and man was it hard to teach the Restoration when you are shivering! lol! We met a few crazy peeps! One guy looked at me and said "I feel like we have met before? ...I know! YobYu were my girlfriend in a past life!" aaahhhh.... We all were speechless for a bit then we laughed! lol! We had dinner with this sweet OLD couple! They have been members for 12 years and are so dedicated! They had met the Elders in California and they wouldn't give up! Almost everyday they went over and after 6 months they were baptized! Hearing these stories helps me to keep having hope in "low" times. :)
Cheryl is progressing so much now! We went over and did service for her! Her niece was having a b-day party so we helped make decorations for it! It was very good and needed so that Cheryl can spend time with us and see we are "normal"! lol! ;) She is excited to come to another Sunday service, but she wasn't able to come yesterday since it was the b-day party. But she promised us that she will be there this coming Sunday! And she is so good at keeping her promises! :) She is enjoying the BOM and is asking such good questions! She is slowly gaining a testimony!!! She is so great! I just love her! :)
Amelia is just doing great! And Stephanie is doing much better! We saw her last night and Samuel (age 9) was there! He loves it when we come over, so we try to stop by every Wednesday and the weekends since he will be there then. Stephanie told us that today is the day that her divorce will be finalized, unless she chooses to keep fighting for custody... She was still not sure about her decision when we left last night. But we did pray with her so that she can receive guidance and to be calm and comforted.
On Saturday Sister Dunagan took us out to Johnston! We met a few peps, but mostly we are focusing on the LA's out there. We talked with a LA who says he is an alchemist/white wizard. He says he sees angels all the time and is preparing food for high vibration bodies when we "transform" during the 2nd coming. He also told us that if we get the ringing in our ears it means we will be alive for a good time, but when we don't hear it anymore it means we are gonna die soon... lol. We just took it as a grain of salt. The sad thing is he served a mission back in the 70's and its crazy to see how Satan gave plant a lie amid all the truth and how far, over time he can twist and use you if you don't notice it. This is a great example to learn from! NEVER stop reading your scriptures and saying your prayers daily! Attend all of your meetings and go to the temple frequently! By small and simple things, great things come to past! Or when we don't do the small and simple things then we can get WAY off course!
I love y'all SO much!!! Keep doing the small and simple things, for you truly will be blessed! xoxoxo
