I haven't really had time to think about it yet. Heavenly Father, over this past week, has kinda been preparing me, though. I've had a feeling, and everyone else has been telling me, that I would be training. Training means that I am responsible for helping a brand-new missionary adjust to missionary life. It's a big task!
Prayers would be appreciated, haha. :)
So today is Sister Jeppson's last day. We are finishing up a few final things, and this afternoon she is going to the mission home. It's so crazy!
This past week we've been running around like crazy, too. We have no miles to our name and so figuring out how to get from place to place has been an adventure. It's been a neat week, though.
Monday we had a sister's preparation day where we all went to the mission home and carved pumpkins. It was so fun!
Tuesday we finally got to see Kristin! Remember the gal that I awkwardly talked to while backing Sister Jeppson in the car? Well, we finally were able to meet with her. She had a lot of questions for us, and we feel like she is seeking answers for herself, as well! We really felt the Spirit and felt guided by the Spirit as we taught. It was so amazing. She says that she is looking for a church, and every time we would explain something, she would say, "I like that." or smile. Kristin is amazing! It is truly a miracle to be able to know her. :)
Wednesday we saw another miracle! We were calling people who had talked to missionaries in the past, and we called this man named Robert. He is going through a lot of trial in his life and we promised him that our message would be able to help him. He invited us to come and to share our message with him. When we first walked in, his little 4-year-old boy was bouncing off the walls and the TV was loud and blaring. We invited him to turn the TV off and we prayed with him to open the meeting. By the end, the Spirit was definitely there, and the little boy had calmed down. We testified of Joseph Smith and the powerful peace that would come into his life as he read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. It was so amazing!
Haha, we had a funny experience that night. We went to visit the Hunters with Rachel and the Elders dropped by with the Hunters home teacher at the same time! Haha :)
We've been able to see lots of other people and have wonderful experiences this week inbetween packing and preparing. Heavenly Father's hand is in this work! He loves us and knows what we need and how to help us. I know that we can be guided by the Spirit in all that we do as we read the scriptures, and pray often.
