Miracle Tuesday! #justonemore

Hello everyone!!
Let's see if I can remember everything!

Monday night Tony and Lauren cancelled :( we visited the Sponenbergs.

Tuesday we met some awesome people! The zone leaders challenged us to
focus on "just one more!" We were trying to contact people, no one was
really home. We were driving and Sister Fuelling got an impression to
knock on this one house and so we turned around and right when we were
pulling up, this girl came walking out of her house with her dog! We
showed her s video and she was super interested in having us come back
and teach her! We have a lesson with her tomorrow! Her name is
Brittany. Super cute girl!
We were in a different neighborhood and we decided to walk up this
long driveway to a house and we knocked on it and this teenager comes
out. We showed a video to him. He really liked it. We left and then
decided to give him a Book of Mormon so we went back and he mentioned
that his friend (who happens to be in our ward!) talked to him about
the book till 2am on a trip! He was going to come to church on Sunday
but he couldn't make it :(
We had a lesson with Freddie but we didn't have a woman with us so we
couldn't teach him :( we decided to go try this less active on the
same street and it turns out that he moved out but his ex wife, Erin,
let us right in and we started teaching her and her little boy the
restoration! It was way cool!

Wednesday we had a conference call and it was all about companionships
and being unified and getting a long with each other. It was so good.
We met Sister Granato. She was having a hard time. Her daughter had
just left with some boy she met online.. turns out she was in Georgia!
What?! But she didn't tell her mom where she was going or anything.
She wasn't answering her phone calls or texts. So she was worried. We
showed her "The Master Healer" talk and she said it really hit home to
her. I think like the next day, her daughter called and said she
wanted to come home.. which is great!
We had a lesson with the Sponenbergs set up but she wasn't feeling
well so she cancelled.
We had a lesson with Laquanda about fasting and paying tithing. We set
her with a baptism date of October 30 and she is excited for that
date! It means something to her personally and she thinks that it was
inspired! We were certain she was coming to church on Sunday but she
never showed up :( it was sad. We hope she fasted with us.
We got to meet the McCalls. He can tell you things about yourself just
by looking at you. It was really creepy actually.
We met Sister Messner as well.
We had sonic for dinner!!! It has been so long since I've had sonic!! 😍
At night we planned for our training we were doing for zone training
on Thursday!

Thursday was zone training. Sister Fuelling and I did a training on
living accountability. We shared our miracles from Tuesday. All of the
trainings were really good. We got our cars inspected by our
missionary leaders afterwards. We took a group picture and no one
noticed that Elder Makuakane (my district leader) and elder Wilson
were missing 😂 I was looking at the pictures that night and that's
when I noticed they weren't in the picture!! Hahaha.
We went over and visited Sister Miller. We showed her the master
healer talk. She said she would come to church on Sunday, but didn't..
we tried to visit and meet people but not a lot of people were home.
We were going to have dinner at the inhofs but one of their little
boys was sick and so we picked up dinner from her and went to the
apartment and ate it. Pork chops and Mac n cheese and sweet potatoes.

Friday morning after studies we went over to Sister Walkers house
(relief society president) and went over visiting teaching.
Did some weekly planning. Made phone calls. Ate dinner at shotguns and penny's.
We went over to Sister Bowens house and cleaned some chinchilla cages.......

Saturday we finished weekly planning.
Had a lesson with Destiny. She is so cute. Ate lunch with Sister
Shepherd. Did some tracting. We were going up to a members house and
there was a part on the grass that kinda like dipped in and I biffed
it and I just started crying! Both of my feet were hurting and I
couldn't move them! It was scary! I managed to get myself up but my
balance was off and I like forgot how to walk 😂 my right foot was
starting to hurt more than my left one but now my left one hurts more!
We did a lot of walking after that too and Sunday so that didn't
help.. Haha.
Had a lesson with the Martinez family. Taught them the restoration.
They said they would come to church but guess what? They didn't.
Ate dinner at the Todds.
Had a lesson with Freddie set up but when we went over there his wife
said that he and one of their sons was in a car accident and they were
resting! Scary!!
We went to visit Sister Higgins with Sister Todd and got to know her
and share a message with her.

Sunday morning we had ward council. We had fast and testimony meeting.
I just love little kids. They are just so adorable. Nobody that said
they were coming to church came.. we were doing some stop bys
afterwards and no body is ever home. We did meet the Bergs. We visited
Sister Miller again.
Ate dinner at the Cains, with the elders.. awkward haha. We watched
meet the Mormons. Well kinda watched.
We had a lesson with Mary set up but she cancelled.

Now it is pday and I'm laying her emailing you all!!
I love you all and stay safe!!
