I Believe In Miracles


It was so good to get to talk to you guys for a bit last week! But it sounds like things are still going A-OK back home and that the house isn't falling apart too bad!  Holy cow I can't believe they took the Young Women out to shoot bows for mutual! How did that go? Haha I remember when my friends and I took girls out on a date shotgun shooting.... man that didn't really work out too great! So I can't imagine that shooting bows would be much better.  I'm kidding! But Young Womens' camp sounds like its going to be a blast! Horseback riding, hiking, and a 8 hour rafting trip with 20 Young Women. I can't imagine anything that could go wrong! It'll be an adventure. That's awesome that Benny's doing so good in baseball. Hopefully some of those things I sent him helped for his state report!
Gosh from the sounds of it all of my single cousins are getting married this year. I got Brandon's wedding invitation. His Fiance is pretty cute! So I talked to Pres Beesley and it turns out he's not going to fly me down for the wedding... :( So let him know that I won't be able to make it and that I'm sorry!

This week we had so many miracles happen! Ever since our last baptism a few weeks ago we've really been hurting for some new people to teach. We've been working really hard and tracting a whole lot but not a whole lot had been happening. The hard thing about our area is that it's the smallest in the whole mission and covers mainly the downtown part of Wasilla so over the years all of the houses have been knocked on quite a bit. I was getting pretty frustrated and so finally about mid-way through last week I decided that I just needed to start fasting for something to happen and for us to be able to find the people that the Lord had prepared for us to help. I knew that there was someone, He's always promised that there is. One of our investigators, Sarah, has been wanting to get baptized for so long but her parents wouldn't give her permission. Miraculously a few days ago her mom finally gave her permission to be baptized so that's going to be happening next weekend!
There are two other little girls that we've been teaching for about two weeks at their grandma's house who's in our ward. They've had a real hard life as their mom has been going through a lot of struggles with addictions. They were planning on moving up to Fairbanks with their mom but it turns out that their grandma decided to have them stay down here with her so they'll both be baptized her in a couple of weeks as well. Then on top of that we were given two really good referrals that we have lessons with this week that should turn out so things are going great! It's always amazes me to see how Heavenly Father is always preparing someone to receive this great gospel!

Well I hope you have a great week!

Love you guys!
