May 11,2016 Hey beautiful people! I hope you all had a great week! We sure did! So many miracles! So, we first of all we gave V.
a fecha! It was a really powerful lesson and the spirit was so strong. We told her she's ready
and we feel like this date is when the Lord wants her to be baptized. She was really moved.
She said she'd pray about it and let us know. She came up to us on Sunday and said she can't
stop thinking about it and wants to talk with us on Friday. Hope it's good news! Pray for her!
She's so ready! We had my last concilio and capacitacion de zona.
That was strange. It feels weird knowing
last concilio 5-3-2016
that that's it. But it was really uplifting. We
repassed the worldwide missionary training
and it really helped us get back to the basics,
you know? Anyway, then we got to do intercambios
with the hermanas from Azuqueca, Hermanas
Keller and Richardson. They are amazing!
They are machines! It was such a treat night
teaching with them. I was with Hermana
Richardson who has 2 weeks in the mission.
She's so cute. Speaks Spanish like a pro,
seriously and could lead a lesson. I was blown
away! I was not at that point with two weeks
in the mission. Anyway, she is a sweetheart
and I learned a lot from her. Mostly just how
to keep a positive attitude and trust in the Lord.
|sorry upside down!|
So, when I was with Hermana Richardson, we saw a miracle. It was so cool. So, she had
contacted this guy but he was busy, so we asked if we could get his number and talk some
other time and he said no because he doesn't give people his number, so we gave him ours
with our card and he said he works everyday until 9:30. We explained that we still teach
then and that he could call us still. He said he would call us at 9:30 that night.
I didn't really believe it. Everyone always says things like that. Anyway, we continued
on with our plans for the night... And in true intercambio form, everything failed.
So,we went to our backup plans, which also failed. And so then we went to our last hope plan,
and as we were walking there, the same guy walks out of his work and chases us down.
He asked if we could meet right then. So we did! And it was great!
He had so many questions and they were all great. He's been looking for answers in his life
for a long time and we've got them! His name is R. He also is 21 and turns 22 exactly one
week after me. So we basically bonded right there and then haha anyway, he asked us when
we could meet again! So we're gonna see him tonight.
I went to the temple for my last time today but that's ok!
And after, we went to Sol and I bought
souvenirs... For all of you fam. So, hope you're all content. It was fun. My poor comp
had to deal with me being indecisive and carrying lots of my bags. Anyway.
It's been a good day. It was good to talk to you on Mother's Day and I had this
realization that 3 weeks is nothing!
Yikes! But that's ok, you can still see plenty of miracles in 3 weeks!!! I'll tell you all the things I'm forgetting in 3 weeks.
Love you! Have a great week! Hermana Griffin
