A Warm Week!
We had a pretty good week. The weather completely flipped. This Thursday the temperature was 51 degrees! The following week it was -7 and then -17 with wind chill so that is a huge difference. We weren't wearing coats and it is January.
We can stay very busy scheduling lessons but our goal is to find people who are more prepared. Some of the people we meet with we cant get them to keep commitments or to come to church. We have found 5 new investigators in the last 5 days, so the Lord is really blessing us. Some days its hard to want to go knock doors but once we get out doing it, it isn't so bad.
One of the highlights of my week and mission was this week. The Sister missionaries in the Des Moines ward told us they met a lady at a Rehab center that was interested in learning about the church. They gave us her address and asked us to stop by. They told us that she might not be fully accountable. This always makes me upset when people say they aren't accountable to get baptized! If they have a desire we shouldn't stop them. Anyways so we stopped by and taught the first lesson on Friday. It went pretty well and she loved it. She asked for a Book of Mormon before we even finished the lesson. Usually we give it at the end and commit them to read it. She was so excited to have it. I didn't think anything of it and then we went back on Sunday. We had asked her to read the introduction to the Book of Mormon. We talked and then I asked "Did you get the chance to read the introduction?" She said "Yes I loved it". Then she said I just couldn't put the book down and I read the first 8 chapters. We were so excited because it had only been 2 days and she had already read 8 chapters. It was an awesome experience. Im grateful for the Book of Mormon and its truthfulness. Have a great week! Love you all!
