This week was great! We saw so many miracles as we really made the effort of talking with everyone! :) We had some great lessons with investigators and less-active members this week but I really saw the miracles start on Friday while we were on exchanges with Sister Wolfe! It was so great! While we were on exchanges, I noticed that I was compelled to go and talk with everyone, which I haven't been super great at (as far as transitioning to a gospel message). When we were talking with someone and other people passed by, I was thinking to myself "wow, there's tons of people to talk with and some of them we don't get to because we are in other conversations." It was amazing to see how the Lord really places people in our path or He places us in their path. We were able to find a bunch a great potential investigators and even set up some appointments with them for this week! I am so excited to continue to talk with everyone now! :)
On Friday, we were pulling into an apartment complex and noticed a girl sitting on the curb and she looked like she was or had been crying. As we drove past, Sister Swapp and I both felt like we needed to go talk to her. We parked the car and then walked back to where she was sitting. Her name is Holly, she's 20, and she is having a tough life right now. Her boyfriend just passed away, she's homeless, and she has a rough family situation. We just started to talk to her and testified to her about how the Savior truly knows how she felt and about the Plan of Salvation. It was cool to see how her countenance changed while we were talking to her. By the time we finished talking to her, she looked happier and was excited to read the Book of Mormon. I hope we will be able to meet up with her again so we can keep teaching her. I think this made more of an impact on me because of seeing the miracles that come from talking with everyone on exchanges. I think if this had happened before exchanges, i don't know if I would have gone up and talked to her about the gospel.
Other big news this week..... COURTNEY IS COMMITTED TO BAPTISM ON JULY 5th! :) We had a fantastic lesson with her on Friday. We taught the Restoration and all of us could feel the Spirit so strongly! She had no hesitation when she said that she would get baptized which was awesome! She's been to church 3 times, occasionally drinks coffee (don't know when her last cup was) and is reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it and Joseph Smith! She is GOLDEN! Sister Swapp and I are super excited and so is Courtney. Miracle!
That's about it for the week! :) I can't wait to see what miracles come to us this week!
Love you all!
Sister Megan Hills
P.S. Look up Genesis 49:22-- Elder Dawson found this during the week. It's a prophecy about the Book of Mormon :) Apparently, a long time ago, people would call the ocean a "wall" because they couldn't cross it. Such a cool thing to think about!
