"Be More Persistent than the Avon Lady" -Elder Holland
Today was transfers! They seem to come faster and faster every time! I'm with Sister Lee from Taiwan now and still in Boise South. She's super sweet! Sister Houtz went to Nampa South with Sister King - my companion before her!
Last Monday we went to Lucky Peak with Elizabeth and Robert! We took some funny pictures. We taught a family for FHE and we showed the 9 year old a picture of Lehi's Dream and he said "I know that one! It's with the rod that leads to the magic fruit tree!" haha (1 NE 8).
I learned how to tat this week! Like I can do it well now. It's like making lace. I want to get really good at it so I can pass it on because it's a dying art.
We saw some miracles this week! First of all, Sara is out of the hospital. She was on a respirator for like 20-something days. It's a miracle that she can breathe on her own now and she is home and she is quitting smoking. She said they disgust her now. Another miracle - one morning we were trying to contact a widow lady and she wasn't there but we met her less-active great-granddaughter who walked by. She's 21, has 2 kids, and is divorced. Some people experience everything so fast. She's so sweet. She's a BSU student. It was cool to meet her and we invited her back to church. But while we were talking to her, this other member came us in her car and said hi to us and told us she knew people we could try to teach. We ended up getting a new investigator!
Have a great week everyone!!
In case you didn't know, I love letters. Like I could never ever have too many ;) haha love you all!
