August 1, 2016 Week 75 Miracles by the dozen, District Meeting, Best Tortillas ever!

Hola familia!!

This week was awesome and packed with miracles and tender mercies! We taught a lot of people and visited members so Smith and Nichols, my new companions could meet them. I have truly grown to love this area, even though it’s not the same as Ontario or Caldwell. 

Tuesday we went back to the computers so I could do MyPlan. This week had me focusing on marriage and dating, and yes it had me feeling super awkward. After that we called the elders to ask them about the address for a referral they had given us, but they couldn’t help us so we were on our own.  Then the miracle of the week happened!  We drove to the general area where we felt the house was supposed to be and then boom we found the place!! It was kind of like that scene in the Princess Bride where Inigo was in the forest looking for Wesley and he is kneeling with his sword and asking God to show him the way and as he gets up he kind of sways from side to side a couple times and just as he is about to give up, he finds the secret button!!!! Hahaha my experience was almost exactly like that but better:)

Wednesday we spent all day running around trying to find people at home. It wasn't until the end of the day that we had a solid visit with Candy. She is a member who is having some troubles in her family. But we were able to spent time with her talking about her struggles and we planned to return on Tuesday! We are really excited to meet with her again and to get her on the path to full activity with her family. 

Thursday was long for us because we spent several hours doing weekly planning. To explain everything I pulled out a white board and drew out all the families and their situations. It was cute to see Smith and Nichols take notes haha!

Friday we had a district meeting, but it was weird because normally MLC and zone meeting come first before we have DM’s in the first week of the transfer. Anyway it was a great DM, we focused on how to better teach the 1st lesson. I love it when meetings are productive because it takes an awfully good meeting to beat no meeting at all. Later that evening we had an appointment to see Irma and teach her the 3rd lesson, but she got distracted halfway through and completely destroyed the Spirit during the lesson with this super crazy story. Haha, she will be put back in the oven to bake a little bit more. But hopefully in the future she will be more prepared to take the lessons again:)

Saturday we went tracting and had a lot of success! We found 3 new families to teach!!! We are pumped to see miracles with each of them:) After that, we helped out Jeanet in her yard by pulling weeds. I am going to miss her so much!! Afterwards we saw another miracle and reconnected with Veronica! We had been teaching her with Vujich but her job has made it hard for her to meet with us. It was so good to see her after so long! Then we had an appointment to meet Christina, the investigator that showed up to church last week with Jeanet and Star, and we are going to start teaching her the lessons! Saturday was basically the best day ever!

Sunday after church we went to see the Narvais family and had lunch with them. She taught me how to make the best tortillas ever and so delicious!!! I am really going to miss them and their sweet Spirit.

Welp familia! I love y'all and don't forget there is and hermana misionera praying for you!

Con mucho amor, Hermana Moss:))
