I hope you all had a good week! We did! I'll get right into some of the cool stuff that happened this week!
- We had a cool miracle! We went to help at our investigators daughters birthday party on Saturday, and we got to meet some of the parents of the other kids there, we were talking to a couple of the dads about what we do, but then the party was over and we all went our separate ways. Later that day we were helping the Elders in their area tracting and this car pulls up, Its one of the dads from the party!! He said "I promise I haven't followed you! haha! Come meet my family!" He lived right around the corner from where we were tracting!! His family is so kind they treated us like we had been friends for years! They love what we do and invited us back for another birthday party the next day. We were able to introduce the Elders to them and talk a bit about the Book of Mormon and the Elders are going back!! Its so amazing though! The Lord knows where we need to be right when we need to be there!
- We were biking the other day and all of the sudden it felt like I got shot with an airsoft gun in the back of the neck.. What the heck? I turn around and one of those stupid swooping birds is chasing Sister Lehartel! And came and knocked me again. Now every time we bike to church this bird attacks us.. haha! They can remember who we are I guess. Yay! Swooping Season again!
- Speaking of which I made it one year!!! Yay me!!! haha! Jokes! I'm so grateful to Heavenly Father for this opportunity to serve! I am so blessed!! I love my saviour!!
I love you all! Have a great week!
